The Mojave High football team improved its record to 2-2 on the season Friday with a 25-12 victory at host Sunrise Mountain.

Ty Flanagan carried the ball 20 times for 212 yards and four touchdowns, giving the Rattlers momentum heading into next week’s league opener against Division I-A favorite Cheyenne. Still, Mojave coach Joe Delgado said there is much to improve on.

“We are always going to have to clean some things up,” Delgado said.

Delgado wasn’t happy with his team being called for 15 penalties, including two that reversed touchdowns. “Those killed us,” he said.

Quarterback Zack Arave completed 12-of-21 passes for 235 yards, finding Billy Murphy for four catches for 81 yards and Tyreek Carter for four catches for 88 yards.

Defensively, Jalon Dean had two interceptions and Lorenzo Guerrero had two sacks to lead the way.
