Rancho gets win but loses running back

Rancho High School got the win over Chaparral Friday night, but not without paying a hefty price.

"It was ugly but we won," Rancho head coach Elvin Dick said. "Defense did a good job keeping them out of the end zone and we moved the ball pretty well."

In the 21-0 win, Rams running back Mack Millender broke his clavicle. He's expected to be out for the rest of the season.

"He (Millender) is a pretty good running back," Dick said. "We're going to miss him."

Rancho's offense has relied heavily on Millender this season.

"We do throw the ball," Dick said, "but he was key in running the ball. Now we will have to rely on James Cammack's arm more."

Millender is the second running back Rancho has lost this season. Senior Donnell Morris broke his ankle in a preseason scrimmage. Dick said Morris might be able to return in a couple of weeks depending on how he does in physical therapy.

Friday night's victory gives Rancho a 3-3 record as it prepares to visit Desert Pines next week.

Legacy edges Arbor View in OT

Legacy defeated Arbor View in overtime, 31-30.

“In overtime, Legacy scored first, then we went for a two-point conversion and they stopped us,” Arbor View head coach Dan Barnson said.

Legacy’s head coach, David Snyder, said he didn't think his team played well, despite the win, because of turnovers. Legacy did have stand-out rushers with 167 yards rushing from Prince Oroke and 127 yards rushing for Deshae Edwards.

“A good team beat a good team," Barnson said. "It could have gone either way."

Barnson called No. 31 Taylor Wooten was the team’s "workhorse" after rushing for about 275 yards.

Mojave still winless after Shadow Ridge loss

Shadow Ridge added another loss to winless Mojave’s record with Friday’s 28-12 win.

“The kids played really well. They worked really hard and this week we executed when we had to,” Shadow Ridge head coach Gabe Gledhill said.

Gledhill said running back Zach Hill contributed to the team's win with successful rushing.

Shadow Ridge faces undefeated Palo Verde next Friday.

Cheyenne pounds Centennial

Cheyenne smothered Centennial, 44-3, Friday night.

“We just got a butt-whooping tonight,” Centennial head coach George Baker said. “Cheyenne’s just really good and we have to go back to the drawing board tomorrow.”

Centennial will have a chance to break its losing streak next week at home against Arbor View.
