Apple Valley cruises to victory against Eastlake

What offseason rust?

The Apple Valley football team looked every bit the part of a well-oiled machine in the season opener with a dominating 42-7 victory over Eastlake.

The Sun Devils traveled down to Chula Vista to take on one of the San Diego area’s top programs and made a statement.

Apple Valley wasted no time, getting on the board in a hurry with an 80-yard opening drive. The Sun Devils scored touchdowns on the next three drives.

Apple Valley led 28-0 by halftime.

Linebacker Dustin Reynolds, the reigning Daily Press Football Athlete of the Year, got in on the scoring in the fourth quarter, breaking free for a 50-yard touchdown run for a 35-7 lead.

Reynolds ended the night with three carries for 65 yards and also caught a touchdown pass from Noah Celie.
