Desert Pines quarterback Iquan Corsey threw for 213 yards and three touchdowns to lead the undefeated Jaguars (4-0) to a 40-14 victory over visiting Bonanza (2-1) on Friday.
Desert Pines used its no-huddle offense to strike quickly and often, as the Jaguars scored three touchdowns in the first quarter to take a 22-0 lead. Corsey connected for scores of 15 and 13 yards to receiver Tim Hough during the period.
The Bengals were able to settle down in the second period, scoring two touchdowns. Senior quarterback Tyler Penkalski, who led the team with 116 yards rushing, scored on a 44-yard dash on a fourth and one play. That score followed running back Jayveon Taylor’s 15-yard touchdown run earlier in the period and made the score 22-14 Jaguars at halftime.
The Jaguars returned to form in the third quarter led by receiver Malik Davis who scored on a 14-yard pass from Corsey as part of his team leading 96 yards receiving. The Bengals, who were held scoreless in the second half were plagued by several errant snaps from center, one of which led to a fumble recovery touchdown by Hough.
Jaguar running back Eric Wilkes closed out the scoring with an 18-yard touchdown run, his second of the game. Taylor finished with 55 yards rushing for the Bengals. The Jaguars have managed to score at least 40 points in every game this season.
