Boulder City coach Alex Kazel has an inclusive philosophy on offense, rather than relying on one star week in and week out.

“If you get the ball, you have a chance to make something happen,” Kazel said.

On Friday night, it was Logan Branscum’s turn. The junior running back rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on six carries and added a 42-yard reception as the Eagles opened Division I-A Sunrise play with a 48-20 road romp over previously undefeated Del Sol.

Boulder City quarterback Trenton Carmel was an efficient 3-for-5 passing for 67 yards and a touchdown, and added two TDs on the ground.

“He does a great job running our offense, seeing things (and) getting better each week,” Kazel said of Carmel. “Give credit to the offensive line; they really moved the line and gave holes for our kids to run through.”

The Eagles’ balanced offense also saw Dillon Viera run for 63 yards on nine carries and Austin Wishard catch two passes for 25 yards.

Del Sol fell to 3-1.
