Prescott at Greenway

Cody Leopold and Maurea Norris rushed for a combined 247 yards and six touchdowns to lead the Prescott Badgers to a 52-7 blowout win over the Greenway Demons in Phoenix.

Prescott scored on all four possessions in the opening quarter to lead 28-0.  Leopold scored on a one yard run and Cole Gross added the extra point for a 7-0 lead. Greenway’s punt was blocked by Landen Francis and Jake Wright, setting up the Badgers at the Greenway three yard line. Uriah Tenette took a shovel pass from Leopold in from three yards out and it was quickly 14-0. Maurea Norris had the longest rush of the night, rambling 70 yards for a touchdown and a 21-0 advantage. Leopold closed out the first quarter with a two yard run.

After a disastrous start, Greenway found the end zone for the only time in the contest, when quarterback Connor Berg connected with Christian Shetler for a four yard touchdown play. Leopold added his third TD of the night on another one yard blast. The Badgers were primed to add one more TD to end the half, but a penalty forced Prescott to settle for a 23-yard Cole Gross field goal and a big 38-7 halftime lead.

The Badger defense was solid all night keeping the Demons from scoring in the entire second half. Two more Prescott touchdowns in the third quarter, an eight yard run by Leopold (his fourth of the game), and 2 yard carry by Norris (his second), turned the scoreboard to a running clock, which sped up what was a really slow game up to that point due to a lot of laundry on the field (flags/penalties).

Offensively, Norris ran for 140 yards and Leopold had 107 yards for a Badgers rushing attack of nearly 300 yards. Jaxon Rice completed 10-14 for 174 yards to set up some scoring drives. Uriah Tenette caught five passes for 79 yards, including a shovel pass from Leopold. Ruben Solano four receptions, 48 yards, and Jake Hilton had three catches for 57 yards. Cody Leopold led all tacklers with ten. Landen Francis had seven, including one sack. Alex Vaughan had an interception to set up a touchdown in the first quarter.

Prescott (3-1) will host Sierra Linda on homecoming Friday while Greenway (0-4) will look for their first win at Gila Ridge. Kickoff is set for 7 pm.

It was a tough homecoming night for the Bradshaw Mountain Bears in a 19-3 loss to the Snowflake Lobos.  The Lobos used over six minutes after the opening kickoff with an 11 play, 80-yard opening drive to jump on top 7-0  on a one yard run by JJ Lerma. The Bears responded with a drive that stalled at the Snowflake 23. Tanner Mitchell drilled a 43 yard field goal for what would turn out to be the only points on the evening by the home team. The Bears gave away two points on a bad snap over the punter and through the end zone to make it 9-0 with 4:26 left in the second quarter. The Lobos added a 40 yard field goal by Sam Brown late in the half to lead 12-3 at the break.

Snowflake held the Bears to three and out in their opening possession in the third quarter, and a blocked punt set the Lobos up at the Bears four yard line. Jett McCray crossed the goal line form one yard out to make the score 19-3. That would be all she wrote for both squads.

The Bears (1-3) have now lost three straight after a season opening win at Mica Mountain. Snowflake (4-1) will host a very talented ALA-Gilbert North. The Eagles QB Adam Damante lit up the Prescott Badgers for 464 yards and seven touchdown passes two weeks ago.
