SPRING VALLEY - EPC's first-ever touchdown was the game's first touchdown against Spring Valley Friday. But the new prep co-op football team couldn't hold on to their lead and lost 21-8 in a non-conference contest.
EPC quarterback Tom LaFlex connected with Logan Wolf on both a 51-yard touchdown pass and the two-point conversion pass to give EPC an 8-0 lead at halftime.
But Wolf sat out the second half due to severe dehydration on what was a hot and sticky night for football at Syverson Park and Spring Valley took advantage. The Cardinals took control of the line of scrimmage in the second half and stayed on the ground, scoring TDs on a two-yard run by quarterback Remington Schneider, a four-yard run by quarterback Zack Newton and 14-yard run by Newton.
Without Wolf, EPC was bottled up on offense, only able to complete one pass in the second half. SV's pass defense also had three interceptions.
