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.
