Monument Valley begins season against Tuba City Warriors
Navajo-Hopi Observer

MONUMENT VALLEY, Ariz. - The Monument Valley Mustangs will open their 2014 football season at Tuba City against the Tuba City Warriors Aug. 29.

The Mustangs finished last season with a 6-5 record under Coach Bryan Begay and were a state playoff team. They lost their playoff game to the eventual champion Blue Ridge Yellowjackets 59-7. Monument Valley defeated Tuba City 35-20 last season.

The Mustangs will play host to the Red Mesa Redskins at Kayenta Sept. 5. Monument Valley enjoyed an easy 62-14 win over Red Mesa last season.

The Mustangs will get back on the road for their third game when they journey to Shiprock, New Mexico Sept. 12 to meet the Shiprock Chieftains. Monument Valley defeated Shiprock 70-41 last season.

The tough part of the season for Monument Valley begins with the team's fourth game. The Mustangs will entertain a very tough Show Low Cougar team Sept. 19. Show Low handed the Mustangs their first loss of the season last year by a convincing 69-6 margin.

A trip to Snowflake Sept. 26 doesn't look much easier for the Mustangs when they meet the Snowflake Lobos. Snowflake defeated Monument Valley 48-8 last season and was a playoff team that advanced in the tournament.

The Page Sand Devils, another playoff team last year, will come to Kayenta to meet the Mustangs Oct. 3. The Sand Devils edged the Mustangs 28-26 last year and this is expected to be a close game again.

It's back on the road for the Mustangs Oct. 10 when the team travels to Winslow to meet the Winslow Bulldogs, yet another playoff team last year. The Bulldogs defeated Monument Valley 53-14 last season.

Oct. 17 the Mustangs will journey to Window Rock to meet the Window Rock Fighting Scouts. Monument Valley won a very close 35-31 game over the Fighting Scouts last year and this should be another important contest.

The last two games for the Mustangs will be played in Kayenta. The Ganado Hornets will come to Kayenta on Oct. 24. Monument Valley got an important win over the Hornets last season 53-8.

The last regular season game takes place Oct. 31 in Kayenta against the Chinle Wildcats. A 41-10 win over the Wildcats last season may have clinched a playoff berth for the Mustangs.
