Moapa Valley, a 3A school, toppled a 4A giant Friday night with a 39-7 victory against Rancho.
Rancho scored a touchdown on a long pass play during its first possession and didn’t get any more points for the rest of the night.
“We got off to a real shaky start,” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “We took control after that. We controlled the rest of the game.”
For Moapa Valley, Matt Newton had seven receptions for 91 yards and nine carries for 48 yards. Jake Pearce added 17 carries for 61 yards and two touchdowns.
Although Moapa Valley came in expecting to win the game, Lewis said, it is always special to beat a school in a higher classification.
“We feel like the 4A doesn’t give the 3A any respect,” Lewis said. “I know Rancho is not one of the powerhouse schools, but it’s always good for a 3A to show it can hang with the 4A.”
