Kijafa Burgie's third-quarter 58-yard touchdown run and Aldo Alejandrez' extra point kick lifted McClatchy over Valley 7-6 tonight in the Metro Conference opener at Hughes Stadium.

The Lions' score came shortly after Chas Roberts had scored for Valley on a three-yard run. But the Vikings' conversion run failed.
