By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, October 12, 2013

The Chico Dragons lost their district opener, 37-20 to the Valley View Eagles Friday.

Chico (4-1, 0-1) has enjoyed a successful season compared to the Eagles (1-4, 1-0), but first quarter fumbles cost them dearly.

The Eagles scored first with a push by Landon Boaz and again a minute later after Valley View picked off a Dragon fumble.

Already down 14, Chico missed a snap and again the Eagles took advantage. With just under 4 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter, Valley View was up 21-0.

The Dragons’ Creese Redman was able to stem the tide with a 33-yard carry to put Chico on the board, and the Dragon defense held the Eagles to a single field goal in the second to end the half, 24-7.

But the Eagles came out swinging in the second half swinging, striking first when Boaz carried for a 39-yard touchdown.

The Dragons came back strong, completing two passes for 74 yards from Jericoe McGuire to Matt Carter. Chico got within 10 points before the Eagles drove home the final nail midway through the fourth on another short run by Boaz, clinching the win at 37-20.
