Brandon Andrews had all four of the Desert Oasis High football team’s touchdowns Thursday in a 29-7 victory against host Durango.

The win gives the Diamondbacks a 4-2 overall record, 4-1 in the Southwest Division. If the Diamondbacks win their remaining three games — winnable contests against Sierra Vista, Pahrump Valley and Clark — they will finish No. 2 in the Southwest Division and host a first-round playoff game.

The school, which opened four years ago, is searching for its first playoff win. Last year, they lost in the first round to Centennial in the program’s first postseason appearance.

Scott Staudinger, the fourth head coach in school history who inherited the program this summer, says his team is starting to come together. “They are getting used to my coaching style,” he said.
