Moore, Miners earn first win over varsity foe

Sunrise Mountain senior quarterback Chris Moore scored on two 3-yard runs and passed for touchdowns of 13 and 28 yards to propel the Miners to a 48-0 win over visiting Western on Friday.

Sunrise Mountain opened in 2009 and was 0-26 against varsity competition, having beaten two junior varsity teams.

The Miners dominated on the ground in the first half, rolling up a 31-0 lead. Junior Romello Tatum scored on an 82-yard run on a direct snap in the first quarter and finished with 139 yards on seven carries.

Junior Sherman Nash rushed for 90 yards, including touchdowns of 15 and 21 yards, and also made an interception.

Western quarterback Larry Jennings passed for 113 yards and was picked off twice, with both interceptions resulting in touchdowns that were negated by penalties.

The Warriors are coming off an 0-9 season marred by a hazing incident on campus that resulted in the forfeit of their final three games.
