CAMARILLO — Golden Valley couldn’t get anything going Friday in a 68-0 loss at Camarillo.

The Scorpions (2-1) scored on every one of their possessions, while the Grizzlies (0-3) seemed to be beating themselves, missing tackles and bobbling snaps.

“You can only learn from a game like this,” said Golden Valley head coach Andy Campbell. “Little mistakes hurt us, and we faltered in spots we knew we had to do well in.”

Grizzlies junior quarterback Andrew Avila completed just 5-of-13 passes for a total of 35 yards. He threw four interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown.

“We move on and focus on the positives,” Campbell said. “Our hitting was better, and although it may sound funny, we completed some passes.”

For Camarillo, senior quarterback Jeff Mathews completed 13-of-15 passes for 301 yards. Six of those completions were for touchdowns, a feat more impressive considering the fact that Mathews did most of this in the first half.

Junior Zandro Diaz replaced Mathews early in the third quarter, and he followed Mathews’ lead by throwing for two touchdowns of his own.

“Six touchdown passes is a school record,” said Camarillo head coach Dennis Riedmiller. “(Mathews) and his receivers are so in tune, it’s scary.”

Camarillo wide receiver Ryan Molesworth had four receptions for 119 yards.

Golden Valley senior running back and linebacker Joseph Figueroa had a solid all-around night, leading the Grizzlies with 27 yards rushing on eight carries and two catches for 32 yards, in addition to eight tackles.

“I just play my heart out,” Figueroa said. “All you can do is try your hardest.”
