Paradise Valley held off a late Phoenix Shadow Mountain rally Friday night, winning 34-26 in a regular-season finale at Paradise Valley.

“We showed character in the end,” Paradise Valley coach Donnie Yantis said. “We made our plays offensively and played hard.”

Shadow Mountain (3-7, 1-5 Desert Sky Region) seemed to come alive with less than a minute left in the first half when Paradise Valley’s David Godley broke free for a 29-yard run that would have been a touchdown if the Matadors’ Darryn Cook-Kelly had not caught him at the Shadow Mountain 34-yard line.

The Trojans went on to score on a 10-yard pass from Grant O’Brien to Johnny Galvez to end the half ahead, 21-6.

Richard Garcia opened the second half with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown for Shadow Mountain to shrink the Trojan lead to 21-12.
