Del Sol hangs on against Rancho

Del Sol got touchdowns from Earnest Hall, Jon Kirschbaum and Derek Eamon Friday night to beat Rancho 41-39.

The Dragons (3-1) led by as many as 17 points in the second half but had to hold on for the win.

“Give Rancho credit. They have a pretty good team,” Del Sol coach Preston Goroff said. “Rancho is going to make some noise in their division.”

Del Sol opens league play next week against Liberty, who knocked off last year’s league champion, Silverado, 6-0 Friday. Del Sol won the league title in 2006 and has won 11 of its last 12 league games.

“After seeing what happen tonight, we aren’t going to take anything for granted,” Goroff said. “It will be a tight race.”

Grizzlies dominate Clark, 56-21

Spring Valley had its way with Clark from the get-go.

The Grizzlies extended a 35-7 halftime lead to win the game, 56-21. Senior running back Jacques Adams powered through in the first half and was pulled in the second half "not to run up the score," Spring Valley coach Kelly Murphy said.

"In the beginning we had everything clicking for us," he said. "We did a lot of things right."

In addition to Adams' performance, Murphy credited the strong play of his offensive line.

Clark coach Don Willis said his Chargers keep digging themselves into a hole early in the game and can't find a way to get out. It's the team's fourth consecutive loss on the year.

"We just didn't execute very well," Willis said.

Clark is at Durango next Friday, while Spring Valley will take on Bishop Gorman.

Arbor View rolls over Mojave

Arbor View defeated Mojave 62-12 in a division game Friday.

“We’ve never won a division game and kept preaching that all week," Arbor View head coach Dan Barnson said. "And we came out and had our first division victory in school history."

Arbor View's defense scored twice in the game.

Arbor View faces Cimarron-Memorial next week.

Sierra Vista gets win over Western

Sierra Vista knocked off Western Friday night, 41-22.

Sierra Vista senior running back Akil Sharp rushed for 305 yards and had three touchdowns, while another senior running back, Garland Latham, rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns.

“Although it didn’t show on the score board, we could have attacked a lot harder,” Sierra Vista head coach Mark Sauve said.

Western junior running back Brian Mickel ran for 180 yards and had two touchdowns in the team's losing effort.

“Our goal is to get healthy again," Western head coach John Isola said. "We still are only suiting up 23 players each game."

Western plays at Pahrump Valley next week. Sierra Vista hosts Bonanza.
