“We’re maintaining our goal of always breaking 200 and then we’re looking forward to continuing our winning ways,” Kofford said. “Our goal is to peak at the end of the year so we can continue to move on.”
The victory boosted Deer Valley’s record to 7-0; 3-0 against Bay Valley Athletic League opponents.
