With a scoring drive to open the game followed by a three-and-out on defense, Silverado got the exact start it was looking for. And once the Skyhawks got rolling there was no looking back in a 45-14 victory at Desert Oasis.
“Every series we were able to drive and put it in the end zone,” said Silverado assistant coach Kanani Araujo.
True to their plan to air it out more this season, quarterback Jarrett Alipio threw three touchdowns with another on the ground. Senior Deyon McKinney also ran for two touchdowns.
“We were really focusing on our O this week to get a boost for our really big game next week against Green Valley,” Araujo said.
The Skyhawks host the Gators next weekend. They would certainly take another offensive performance similar to this one, particularly the way each drive was building off the last one.
“One thing we want to build on is keeping momentum throughout the games,” Araujo said. “We want to be able to make a little mistake, push past it and keep rolling.”
