Cheyenne defense forces eight turnovers in win against Valley

Anthony Walker made three interceptions, part of eight turnovers for Cheyenne’s football team Friday, as the Desert Shields took down host Valley, 45-30.

Rayvion Brown, Charleston Tooks, Javier Cone and Wesley Federson all had interceptions for the Desert Shields (1-2), for a total of seven interceptions on the night. None went for touchdowns.

Cheyenne’s James Henry opened the scoring with 2:50 left in the first quarter on a 30-yard catch from Joshua Rose. Valley’s Bryce Jones returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards to tie the score, only to see Henry score two plays later on a 55-yard run. Cheyenne burst out to a 33-12 halftime lead and was never threatened in the second half.

Cheyenne running back Clarence Rose was a bulldozer, plowing through defenders regularly on his way to 211 rushing yards and two scores on just 15 carries. Quarterback Joshua Rose was highly efficient, finishing 11-for-12 with three passing touchdowns and rushed for 48 yards on 10 carries.

Bryce Jones finished with 114 yards and a score on 15 carries to lead the Vikings (0-2). Jones also had a receiving touchdown to go with his kickoff return for a score.
