Golden Valley scores second highest number of points in school history in blowout victory.

CHATSWORTH — For at least one night this season, the Golden Valley Grizzlies football team can feel like a perennial powerhouse.

Behind a four-touchdown performance by running back Terry Tamura and big plays on defense and special teams, the Grizzlies defeated the Chatsworth Chancellors 47-6 on Friday.

“I was very excited for the way they played, and the victory,” said Golden Valley head coach Robert Fisher. “It’s good for the kids to come out here and have success.”

The Grizzlies (2-3) were successful from the opening moments as they moved out to a 20-0 lead after the first quarter and a 33-0 advantage at halftime.

Helping its cause, Golden Valley recorded an interception and two blocked punts in the first half. Linebacker Patrick Isacsson had the team’s interception and first blocked punt, both of which led to Tamura touchdowns.

Isacsson also scored a touchdown on the opening play of the second quarter as he recovered Tyshon Thompson’s blocked punt in the end zone.

“(Isacsson) really came on,” Fisher said. “He’s been doing a lot of things for us, and he’s all over the field. When you work hard and put yourself in those positions, good things happen.”

Tamura added an 88-yard touchdown run on his final carry of the night with 4:51 to play in the third quarter.

The senior finished with 167 yards on 11 attempts and three touchdowns on the ground.

He also caught his second touchdown pass of the season on a 14-yard toss from quarterback Robert Phillips.

Phillips finished the game 5-for-8 for 97 yards and two touchdowns.

Golden Valley was on the verge of breaking the school single-game record for margin of victory, but a late touchdown run by Chatsworth running back Randy Miguel put that goal out of reach. Chatsworth’s record now stands at 1-4.

The record currently sits at 42, by way of a 48-6 victory over Hoover on Sept. 12, 2009.

As for 2013, the Grizzlies will look to build on the victory as they begin Foothill league play Friday at home against Canyon.

“As I just told them, this is the most important week of football in their lives,” Fisher said regarding preparation for league play. “It starts our league. And it starts where all of our focus has been, and all of our goals have been...This is the most important week in Golden Valley history.”
