The Sierra Vista High football team’s offense was firing on all cylinders Friday night, as the Mountain Lions bested Desert Oasis 54-20 in the Southwest League opener.
Sierra Vista torched the Diamondbacks through the air with two different quarterbacks. Freshman Jayden Maiava threw for 163 yards and four touchdowns, while senior Jordan Solomon threw for 115 yards and a score.
Tavaris Andrews led all receivers with 157 yards and three touchdowns. Jett Solomon and Zion Jackson each caught a touchdown as well.
“The passing game was good,” Sierra Vista coach John Foss said. “We were able to run the ball a lot better than we have so we were much more balanced.”
On the ground it was all Bryan LaGrange, who exploded for 202 yards and three touchdowns on only 11 carries.
“We had a tough non-conference schedule so we think that prepared us for league play,” Foss said.
Sierra Vista (2-3) hosts Clark next week. The Diamondbacks (4-1) will look to bounce back from their first loss of the season as they hosts Boulder City next Friday.
