2016 High School Football

The one-two punch of Chaparral High quarterback Santiago Vialpando and wide receiver Kentrell Petite proved to be too much for visiting Eldorado High to contain tonight in the annual “Cleat Game.”

Petite had seven catches for 207 yards and four touchdowns for the Cowboys, who turned one of Nevada’s oldest rivalries into a victory by the mercy rule of a running clock. That’s a rarity for a game which is typically closely contested.

Chaparral, which led 43-0 at halftime, has scored 40 or more points in its initial three games.

Last week, Vialpando had five touchdown passes against Basic. Tonight, he completed 13-of-18 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns — all before halftime.

TyRay Collins added a 94-yard interception return for a touchdown and a 43-yard punt return for another score. Adan Bernal led the rushing attack with 34 yards and a touchdown.

For Eldorado, Anthony Silva rushed for 80 yards and Andres Jimenez had 33 yards receiving.
