FMS plays at Collins tonight.
Valley Middle School posted a 16-14 defeat of Collins Middle Thursday to conclude a campaign during which it posted the best record against county schools after starting the year 0-2. No playoffs will be held for this year’s county teams.
“I am very proud of these kids,” said first-year coach Darren Jones. “They lost the first two games and kept their heads up and just worked harder to win the rest of their games.”
“We had first-and-goal inside the 10 twice and didn’t punch it in,” said Collins coach Bo Morrison. “We had some good drives.”
For the Little Devils, Logan Erickson scored on a 60-yard kick return and Trenton Casto reached paydirt on a 65-yard kick return. Casto passed to Erickson for a two-point conversion.
Billy Peerce had an interception for the CMS defense.
