It did, but it wasn’t the yardage feast that many would guess.
Thanks to a defensive effort that limited the Western Warrior’s offense to, wait for it, negative-46 yards of offense and zero first downs, many of the Boulder City Eagles’ offensive possessions began in Western (0-2) territory.
“Our kids did their jobs and got back to the ball. They had a lot of problems getting the snap off and our kids got all over them. We shut them down quickly,” Boulder City coach Alex Kazel said. “When you have a short field, it makes your offense score a lot more points.”
No Boulder City (1-1) player rushed for more than 100 yards.
Sam Woodbury was the closest, racking up 74 yards with a pair of touchdowns.
All-City selection Xavier Steel only had 32 yards, but he got in the scoring fun as well. Steel returned a punt 50 yards for a score in the second quarter.
Brooks Roe rushed for 43 yards with a pair of touchdowns, while Nelson VanDiest and Alex Pappageorge and Trenton Carmel also tallied a score each.
