The Panthers wouldn’t be challenged the remainder of the night, closing the game with 77 unanswered points in a 77-6 victory.

Darrion Finn scored three ways for Palo Verde — he returned an interception for a touchdown, had a punt return for a touchdown and added a rushing touchdown.

Parker Rost completed 4 of 5 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown to Jake Ortale. Rost also rushed for a touchdown. Backup quarterback Graeson Vereen also had a touchdown pass, hooking up with Jordan Bruner for 20 yards.

Running back Ty Fuller touched the ball twice, scoring a pair of touchdowns and gaining 114 yards.
