After Valley View ran its second play from scrimmage into the end zone, and the 1st quarter ended tied at 14, it seemed that both the Pioneer and Valley View defenses decided to stay home for the evening. The only punt in the opening quarter was by the Tigers, and that was with seconds left on the clock. But, in the second quarter, the Diamondback defense took charge. Alec Garcia's interception brought the ball to the 2 yard line, with quarterback Jacob Rosales calling his own number for the score. Line backer Angel Chapa stole another Valley View pass, leading to a nice drive and a short touchdown pass to William Proctor late in the second half. The teams went to the locker room with Pioneer ahead 35-14 after keeping Valley View scoreless in the second quarter. During the first half, the Diamondbacks didn't punt once.
