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 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...
