Valencia (5-3, 2-1) vs. Anaheim (4-4, 3-0)

7:30 P.M. FRIDAY GLOVER STADIUM

Ball control figures to play a major role in this Orange League showdown. Despite a fine passing attack, Anaheim is best when it mixes the run and pass in long drives, something that Valencia has done under Coach Mike Marrujo for years. Both quarterbacks, Anaheim's Luis Gomez and Valencia's Eric Young, are senior leaders who find a way to get the job done. Gomez, who has 22 touchdown passes, has thrown for 2,461 yards. Young has thrown for 10 touchdowns and completed 51% of his passes. Marrujo is confident: "Everything is in our own hands to win the league championship."
