No team can easily defend Silverado tight end Josh Curtis.

Silverado took advantage of that Friday night as Curtis caught two touchdowns in a 38-19 victory against Moapa Valley.

“We really want to move the ball through our tight end,” Silverado coach Andy Ostolaza said. “It can cause some problems.”

Curtis, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior, now has six touchdowns this season. He accounted for most of Silverado’s 85 passing yards in the game.

Senior Steven Scamorza and junior Izaiah Thurmon had more than 220 combined yards on the ground. Scamorza scored one touchdown as did senior Jeff Thomson.

“We moved the ball really well on the ground,” Ostolaza said. “I think we used our size on Moapa tonight. We were getting seven yards per carry just pounding it.”

Silverado improved to 4-3. Moapa Valley fell to 3-4.
