The fourth week of Santa Clarita football is scheduled for Friday with all schools officially having played at least one game despite COVID-19 complications that have forced the cancellation of several games through the first three weeks of competition. The Foothill League teams are now two games away before heading into league play.

Here is the schedule for week four football:

Valencia (1-0) vs Rancho Cucamonga (1-1)

The Valencia Vikings are scheduled to play the Rancho Cucamonga Cougars on Friday at 7 p.m. at Rancho Cucamonga. The Vikings are coming off a 42-20 victory against Notre Dame, pushing them to be ranked 35th in the state. The Cougars are coming off a 62-21 loss to Norco.

The Vikings were led by their senior quarterback Tyler Voss, who finished the game with 386 total yards and six touchdowns. Senior wide receiver and cornerback Duhron Goodman finished the day with three receiving touchdowns and an interception.

The Vikings will look to get to two wins in a row on the season against the Cougars.
