The Dana Hills football team will continue their tough preseason march with a home game Friday against Villa Park, the No. 2 ranked team in the CIF-SS Southwest Division.

The Dolphins (1-2) are coming off a convincing win over rival San Clemente on September 12. The status of Dolphins junior running back Brian Scott is still unknown. On September 12 Scott, who is nursing an ankle injury, said that the ankle is feeling better but he did not take the field against San Clemente.

Justin Scott has been filling in and has been producing at the running back spot. Scott rushed for 174 yards and one touchdown in the win over San Clemente.

Villa Park (2-0) is coming off a narrow 27-26 win over Cabrillo.

Location: Dana Hills High
Time: 7 p.m.

Villa Park Coach: Dusan Ancich
League: Century
2012-2013 record: 12-2 (6-0 league)
2012 vs. DH: DNP

Villa Park was dominant last season and seems to have a lot of the major pieces returning that will ensure another successful season. But one glaring hole that sticks out on the Spartans’ depth charts is the loss of running back Meki Tafuna, who ran for 1,374 yards and 27 touchdowns last year. So far, junior running back Michael Vega has been getting a majority of the touches. A match up to watch will be the Dolphins defensive front seven against the Spartans’ ground game.
