Del Sol’s potent running attack appeared early and often Friday night, and it led the visiting Dragons to a blowout win over Boulder City, 39-7.
Taariq Flowers had 290 yards on 19 carries and found the end zone three times for Del Sol (4-2, 1-1 Sunrise League), all in the second quarter. Not to be outdone, teammate Titan Williams totaled 154 yards and two scores on only seven carries. Williams opened the games scoring with 5:18 in the first quarter on a 56 yard scamper. He also tacked on a 6- yard TD run with 8:46 left in the fourth.
Late in the fourth quarter, linebacker Darrion Webb got in on the scoring action with a 32-yard interception return for a touchdown. Eman Lawoye and Devonte Villarta also had interceptions.
Boulder City (1-5, 0-2) struggled on offense all night. The Eagles made a concerted effort to throw the ball, with quarterback Michael Martinelli attempting 38asses, but he only completed 10 of them for 144 yards and threw three interceptions.
Boulder’s lone score came with 4:04 left before the half, when Briggs Huxford took a short pass from Martinelli 36 yards to the house. Huxford had six catches for 125 yards.
The Eagles found some success on the ground with Ryan Vanario, who carried the ball nine times for 60 yards. Sean Jones shined on both sides of the ball for the Eagles, throwing a 42-yard wide receiver pass to Huxford and intercepting a pass late in the third quarter.
