The Villanova Preparatory School (VPS) football program finished its regular season 9-0 and claimed the inaugural Mt. Pinos League title with a dominating 72-36 victory over highly ranked Orcutt Academy Oct. 28.
Orcutt Academy came to Ojai with a 7-1 record and a great deal of confidence, but the Spartans were sent home with their second loss after VPS ran around, over and through their defense.
VPS rushed for a whopping 339 yards on the night thanks to the blocking of their line and huge games from Anthony Martinez, Raegan Mang and Bobby Caron.
