Isaiah Morris continued on his blistering season, scoring in a multitude of ways Friday night as Desert Pines downed Chaparral 60-13.

Morris had two rushing touchdowns, a receiving touchdown and a kick-return touchdown.

“He basically carried us tonight statistically,” Desert Pines coach Tico Rodriguez said.

The Jaguars got out to a 24-0 lead before Chaparral scored on a long pass play and off of an interception to climb back into the game. The gap wasn’t short for long, as Desert Pines refocused and went into halftime with a 40-13 lead.

“I was pleased with how we came out,” Rodriguez said. “We didn’t play well against Moapa with all the penalties, but there was no letdown. The kids were really focused.”
