SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The Crescenta Valley High football team knew it could score plenty of points against Hoover on Friday. The Falcons just weren't sure if they could stop the Tornadoes' offensive attack.
Fortunately for Crescenta Valley, it didn't have to play much defense.
The Falcons dominated the possession battle, burned clock and scored at ease throughout the opening half.
Crescenta Valley controlled the ball for more than 18 minutes of the half en route to building a 33-point halftime lead in a 62-28 Pacific League victory at Moyse Field.
"They never had the ball, which is good for us, because we were scared to death of their offense," Crescenta Valley Coach Paul Schilling said. "We got the early breaks, and from the past, we saw them think, 'oh here we go again,' when we started scoring.
"We knew just by looking at film of them that we could score."
