Golden Valley-Santa Clarita matched its best start in program history on Friday night, bolting out to an early lead and cruising past Chatsworth, 56-14.
Luke McCoy's touchdown run less than 25 seconds into the game gave the Grizzlies (4-0) a quick 7-0 lead, and Johnathan Kaelin wasted no time making his mark on the contest, returning an interception on the first Chatsworth drive for a touchdown for a 14-0. When Chatsworth had to punt after its second time with the ball, Kaelin returned the punt for a touchdown and a 21-0 lead despite the fact Golden Valley had only run a couple offensive plays to that point.
A Chatsworth (2-2) score cut the deficit to 21-7 midway through the first quarter, but Kaelin hauled in a touchdown pass with 1:40 left in the first quarter to make it 28-7 headed to the second. The host Chancellors scored again to narrow the gap to 14 points, but another touchdown from Kaelin and a scoring run by Mekhile Newton made it 42-14 in favor of Golden Valley at the half.
Brayzon Henderson and Amir Ashoury each reached the end zone in the second half to account for the final points of the night.
Golden Valley, which also won its four games in 2016, will go for its first-ever 5-0 start next Friday when it hosts 3-1 Newbury Park. Chatsworth heads to Sylmar on Friday.
