Silverado takes down Palo Verde in OT, 13-7

Foothill Dominates Silverado High School Football

L.E. Baskow

Silverado QB Micah Weber looks to the file as his high school football team faces Foothill on Friday, September 4, 2015.

Before his Silverado High football team took the field tonight, Skyhawks coach Randall Cunningham told them to expect a close game against visiting Palo Verde.

He anticipated the game would go into overtime. A few hours later, the score was even at seven at the end of regulation — Cunningham’s prediction came true.

“Who is going to pull it out when we get to overtime?” Cunningham, the former NFL quarterback, asked players before the game. “When we get to overtime, I brought the kids together again and said, ‘Guys we are at that point now.’”

Silverado prevailed 13-7 on Devion Clayton’s touchdown reception from Micah Weber.

“Our kids played their hearts out tonight,” Cunningham said. “Palo Verde is a very, very good football team.”

Weber's touchdown run of about 90 yards in the first half gave Silverado a 7-0 lead at halftime. Palo Verde’s Christian Bell scored on a 5-yard run in the second half to tie the score.

It’s the second straight week Palo Verde (1-3) has lost in overtime.
