Pahrump Valley runs wild on Boulder City

Ten Pahrump Valley ball carriers combined to rush for 197 yards and four touchdowns Friday as the Trojans defeated Boulder City 35-6 on the road.

Pahrump (2-1) led 14-0 at the half, but Boulder City (1-2) looked re-energized after the break. Thurston Balmer saw his first carry of night, and broke a 49-yard run to give the Eagles their best field position of the night.

After failing to convert on their first three tries from the goal line, coach Chris Morelli pulled the field goal unit back and rolled the dice. Aaron Walker pushed through the line for Boulder’s only points of the night on a 1-yard touchdown run with 8:14 left in the third quarter.

On the ensuing possession, Pahrump’s Case Murphy scored on a 2-yard run and then put the nail the coffin when he picked up a fumble to open the fourth quarter and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown.

Jesse Dillon, who had a 1-yard TD run to open the scoring with 9:15 left in the first quarter, finished with 47 yards on five carries for the Trojans. He added a 23-yard TD run with 9:18 left in the fourth quarter.

Balmer led the Eagles with 79 yards on 12 carries.
