Valley QB Zibert accounts for two scores in win over Slam Academy

Posted Saturday, 21 September 2019 ‐ Las Vegas Sun

The Valley High football team had a few fumbles, penalties and other mistakes tonight against Slam Academy. But instead of letting those miscues turn into a defeat, the Vikings’ defense picked up the slack in a 19-14 victory. “I don’t know how many self-inflicted wounds we had,” Valley coach Quincy Burts said. “But our defense rallied around each other. They showed some resiliency.” Jarrett Zibert had a 2-yard touchdown run and hooked up with Monate Pate for a 40-yard score. JC Bingham added a 10-yard touchdown run.
