Cheyenne gave up an early touchdown at home Friday and never trailed after that, cruising to a 42-10 victory over Pahrump Valley.
Matthew LaBonte threw for three touchdowns and 222 yards on the day, each to a different receiver, and two other Cheyenne (3-3, 1-1 Sunset League) players scored touchdowns on the ground.
Pahrump (3-3, 1-1) opened the game by scoring on their first drive, as quarterback Parker Hart snuck the ball in from the one yard line on fourth and goal.
But the Desert Shields struck back on their ensuing drive, as William Federson brought in a LaBonte pass for a 21-yard score, followed by a two-point conversion. Cheyenne proceeded to score the next six touchdowns (with a safety squeezed in) and only allowed a field goal the rest of the way.
After the half, the Trojans appeared to be mounting a drive to move the score closer, but Hart, who was often under threat when he tried to pass, was sacked and fumbled, and the ball was recovered by the Desert Shields. Deriontae Green took the ball in from 19 yards to complete the drive for a touchdown.
