Madera Coyotes

When it rains, it pours: In the first half of a 42-6 County/Metro Athletic Conference loss to the Valley's top-ranked Edison-Fresno football team, the Madera Coyotes limited the Tigers to 126 total yards and entered halftime trailing a mere 7-6. After the break, the Tigers returned and roared to life, gaining 355 yards and 35 points as the Coyotes were unable to stop strong Edison drives.

Despite gettting sacked five times for a loss of 30 yards, Richey threw for 167 yards and two highlight-reel touchdowns to Travis Jordan. After five straight weeks of decreasing passing yardage total, it was his most yards passing since his third game of the season.

Stepping up: When his inside linebacking partner, Steven Clark, went down with an injury, Kendall Malone has filled in both shoes very nicely...
