Mojave notched its first win of the season, torching host Western 41-8 on Friday night.

Senior quarterback Taiwan Braden led the way, throwing for two touchdowns and running for one more.

“We pulled away from them fast,” Mojave coach Abraham Gonzalez said. “The kids were very happy; I’m glad they finally got a victory.”

Braden sparked the Rattlers with big plays, as his first touchdown pass went to senior receiver Antonio Wayman for more than 50 yards. Wayman caught the second touchdown too, a 30-yard score.

Senior Khalid Walker, junior Demetrius Smith and senior Nick Kline all added rushing touchdowns for Mojave.
