Backup quarterback Nate Cox rose the occasion in Hymas’ place, completing 6 of 11 passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns. More important, Cox showed he could lead the team if Hymas gets injured in a more meaningful game later in the season.
“That’s exactly what we talked about at halftime,” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “It was a good opportunity to prepare if something (similar) happened down the road.”
Cole Mulcock was his favorite target, catching seven passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns.
Moapa Valley didn’t need much from its passing attack, though. Kaleb Bodily was a one-man show, rushing nine times for 218 yards and three touchdowns. Also, the Moapa Valley defense limited Del Sol to 22 yards in the first half, Lewis said.
“We were really good on first down defense,” the coach said.
