Perhaps Mojave really is that good.

The Rattlers slithered off their second impressive win in as many weeks Saturday, nearly blanking upper-classification Spring Valley 27-6.

“Spring Valley was a tough team and gave us their all,” Mojave coach Joe Delgado said. “Luckily, we were able to capitalize on some of their mistakes and made plays when we absolutely needed to.”

Mojave made plenty mistakes of its own, getting three touchdowns wiped off of the board because of penalties. But a suffocating defense effort led by Kaleb Friedman, Kharye Shine and Daijon Payno made up for it.

On offense, the usual suspects did the damage. Ty Flanagan rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown, while Marcus Parker caught a touchdown pass from Zack Arave.

The Rattlers have one of their biggest games of the season next week with a trip to Moapa Valley.
