Las Vegas went 67 yards on only five plays for a touchdown on its first drive Friday night against Chaparral.

The second drive wasn’t so picturesque.

“We fumbled at the friggin’ one yard line,” Las Vegas coach Chris Faircloth said.

Chaparral proceeded to go 99 yards and make things interesting with a 7-6 score.

“Then, it just got ugly,” Faircloth said.

The Wildcats (4-1) dominated the rest of the game and beat the Cowboys (0-6) 55-6 on homecoming night. Las Vegas did it behind new faces.

Senior running back Riyaadh Nevins had 11 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and senior quarterback Timmy Daniels was 8-for-10 for 111 yards and two touchdowns.

“We had some guys banged up and we really didn’t know how tonight’s game was going to go,” Faircloth said. “We are very pleased.”
