Maconaquah scored twice in the first 12 minutes.
“Valley’s defense played much better over the last 60 minutes,” Valley coach Andrew Luce said in a statement. “Dawson Perkins had a strong night in goal, and the defense of David Murietta, Kolton Seaney, Jesus Baca, Gerardo Fernandez and Gio Arriaga held the defending conference champions at bay.”

Over the last eight months, Hughes has needed two surgeries, an extended hospital stay, home health care equipment, wound care supplies and a new wheelchair that have generated substantial medical bills.
Hughes had herniated disc surgery in January and surgery to stabilize pressure sores in March.
Hughes is back to teaching and coaching at Rochester but still needs wound care three times per week.
