The Western High football team might not make the playoffs this fall, but the Warriors have a great chance to close the season on a two-game winning streak.

That’s something coach Fernando Carmona feels will give his team plenty of momentum for their off-season program.

Western’s Tadarrel Mason rushed for five touchdowns and 220 yards Thursday in a 36-28 victory against visiting Sierra Vista in the Warriors' homecoming game. It was Western’s second win of the season and its first since Sept. 3.

“The wins have been hard to come by,” Carmona said. “This one was sweet being our homecoming.”

Mason was a one-man show as Western led from start to finish. “He was just amazing. He pretty much carried us,” Carmona said.

Western closes the season next week against Pahrump, which has lost more than 30 straight games. It’s looking to triple its win total from last year.

“From one win to three is definitely a huge step,” Carmona said. “We have a lot of juniors who play a big role for us. They are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
