WALNUT CREEK -- Hopefully Berean Christian High students had a better time at the homecoming dance. The Valley Christian football team ran for 336 yards in a 47-14 Tri-County Athletic League-Rock Division victory on the Eagles' homecoming.

Berean Christian had a chance early when the Vikings up 10-0, fumbled a punt return in their own territory, giving the Eagles the ball at the Valley Christian 40. On the next play, though, an interception was returned 85 yards for a touchdown by Vikings sophomore Jarius Woodson.

On its first play after the pick-six, Berean Christian (2-7, 0-5 TCAL-Rock) answered with an 80-yard touchdown run by sophomore Daniel Glorioso, but that is as close as it would get.

Senior quarterback Theman Taylor III paced the Vikings offense with 147 yards rushing, including a 26-yard touchdown run on the opening drive. After jumping out to a 26-8 lead at halftime, Valley Christian (5-3, 3-1), threw just twice in the second half, opting to rely on the run game to see the game through.

"For us it's pretty simple, we rely on the both the offensive and defensive line to do their job," Valley Christian coach Jim Heal said.

Berean Christian quarterback Jax Cuddihy completed 9 of 15 passes for 51 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Glorioso finished with 96 total yards on 13 rushes and two receptions.
