Valle got on the board first thanks to a safety from their defense. Then it was Chase Dunlap to Drew Bauman to extend the lead in the first half…

The point after was good to make it 9-0. Thayer was able to respond with a touchdown drive of their own just before the end of the second quarter to make it 9-7 at halftime.

After two kneel downs, it was a final, 15-14 as Valle held on to defeat Thayer in an epic thriller. Warriors head coach Judd Naeger says it was a gritty win…
