Separation week

A week after Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer could barely find a single game to disagree on, they line up on opposite sides all over the place. With all teams now in league play, they go through all the matchups and differ on how several will play out. They also look back on last week's game between Bishop Gorman and Booker T. Washington.

Right from the get go, Clark coach Don Willis knew his game plan was going to work.

The Chargers defeated Western, 54-0, behind a dominant rushing attack.

Clark (3-4, 1-2 Division I-A Sunset) scored 32 points in the first quarter behind the legs of Milan Dixon and Ty’Rek Wells, who each ran for two touchdowns in the opening 12 minutes.

“It was our game plan. Just pound it at them,” Willis said. “The edge was open and we got out in the open. It was big plays. We scored a lot in the first quarter. It worked out well.”

Wells finished with three touchdowns, adding another early in the second quarter.

With the game essentially in hand, Willis opted to get younger players on the field for the Chargers’ homecoming.

Nathaniel Tate and Khiemleng Lay each scored in the second half.

“We got a lot of backups in,” Willis said. “It was a good homecoming for us.”

Western (0-7, 0-3) is still looking for its first win in three seasons.
