For the 14th straight time on Friday night, Edison took home the Bell in the "Battle for Bell." Fountain Valley put up a fight, but Edison was simply too strong and powerful, eventually finishing off Fountain Valley for a 42-20 victory. Edison dominated this one on the ground, as MVP Kobe Lopez carried the ball 36 times for 208 yards and one touchdown. Lopez gave all the credit to the offensive line ahead of him for the success this season and in this rivalry game. The Edison defense did enough to continually hold off the Barons from Fountain Valley, and Edison slowly killed off the game, controlling the clock on the ground. The win moves Edison to 5-4 and drops Fountain Valley to 4-5 on the season.
