Colorado’s number one football team, the Valor Christian Eagles visited the NAAC in Arvada on Friday to play the number two Pomona Panthers in game two of a double header. These two teams have played each other something like 7 times in the last four years, and Friday’s game was a rematch of last year’s state championship.
It looked to be a pretty good battle from the start of the game. Both teams went scoreless through the first quarter, and Valor finally scored first with a field goal. Valor dominated the game, but word was floating around that Pomona was not playing at their full capability, saving something for the playoffs and another go at the Eagles. Valor won the game 34-21.
For this game I used my Canon 1D series camera, my 120-300 f2.8 from Sigma, and a Adorama Flashpoint bare bulb flash at 1/8th power. I am not a fan of flashed football, but these came out pretty good for flashed football.
