Junior tailbacks key Cimarron victory

Junior tailback Stephen Nixon rushed the ball 13 times for 162 yards and one touchdown, and  junior tailback James Poole scored on two bursts up the middle as Cimarron-Memorial coasted to a 33-6 road victory over winless Mojave on Friday.

Cimarron’s first touchdown came on a 30-yard fumble recovery from Timothy Hassan with 5:22 to go in the first quarter. Two minutes later, the Spartans defense forced a fumble that led to a 5-yard touchdown run by Poole.

Poole finished with 100 yards rushing on 12 carries for Cimarron-Memorial (4-3, 3-1, Northwest).

Mojave (0-6, 0-4) was led by senior quarterback Mike Montgomery, who rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown and completed 2 of 6 passes for 28 yards.
