Palo Alto remained atop the SCVAL De Anza Division, but it took some big plays to offset turnovers and a shaky running game during the Vikings' 28-14 victory over visiting Saratoga on Friday night.
Paly (2-0, 5-1) lost three fumbles, gave up a safety and ran for just 37 yards, but produced some big plays when needed to hold off the Falcons (2-1, 3-3), who lost a share of first place with the defeat.
Will Holder came up with Paly's first big play when he intercepted a pass and returned it 84 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. For Holder, a senior strong safety, it was his third interception of the season.
The Vikings made it 14-0 just before halftime when senior quarterback Will Brandin lofted a pass in the vicinity of Maurice Williams, who hauled it in and completed a 63-yard scoring play. After running back Sam Tompkins-Jenkins scored on a two-yard runn in the third qarter, Brandin completed the scoring when he hit Joc Pederson on a 33-yard scoring play in the fourth quarter. Brandin completed only six of 14 passes, but totalled 218 yards with two TDs. He also was sacked four times, one resulting in a lost fumble, in addition to fumbling on two other occasions.
The Vikings' defense gave up 170 rushing yards but limited the Falcons to just 23 yards through the air. Paly will have to be better next Friday when the Vikings host Wilcox (1-1, 3-3), a 24-7 loser to Los Gatos on Friday night.
