Milan Dixon rushed for three touchdowns helping Clark High to a 39-0 victory over Rancho High on Friday.

Andre Turner ran for a score and added a touchdown pass to Clifton Smith.

The Chargers took an 18-0 lead into the half, and added 21 more in the second half to beat the Rams (0-1).

Despite throwing for a touchdown, Clark coach Don Willis admitted the air attack is a work in progress.

“We really have to work on our passing game,” he said. “We haven’t been a passing school. We’re working on it. They’re playing a little behind. We’ll try and improve.”

Another thing Willis wants to address is the number of penalties. The Chargers (1-0) had an interception wiped away on a roughing-the-passer call.

Even with the interception taken away, the defense had a strong effort, capped off by a 70-yard fumble return by Alexander Floyd.

“For what we’ve done for the last couple of years, we’re really rallying to the ball for the first time in a long time,” Willis said. “We switched up our scheme and I think it energized us.”
