Tanner Vaughan had a fumble recovery and interception return today for the Palo Verde football team in a 14-7 victory against host Green Valley.

“We are very proud,” Palo Verde coach Joe Aznarez said. “It’s never easy to win on the road, especially against a program like that. Green Valley came to play.”

Charron Thomas carried the ball 19 times for about 150 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Panthers improve to 3-0 on the season.

Palo Verde forced four turnovers — two on their side of the field. Amir McGruder and Tre Gola-Callard also had interceptions.

“It’s a team effort,” Aznarez said. “The kids have bought in and they are playing hard.”
