Sunrise Mountain High accomplished a first in what coach Ky Edwards hopes turns into a string of them.

The Miners (1-2) notched the first road victory in program history Thursday at Western High (0-3) with a 25-6 victory. And the score could have been every more lopsided had Sunrise Mountain not had six touchdowns — four rushing and two interception returns — called back on penalties. Overcoming that, though, showed Edwards a lot about his team.

“What I loved is our kids battled through adversity,” he said. “Our kids have a tendency to get mad at things out of our control. We kept our heads in it and we battled. It showed maturity that we’ve been working on for the last few years.”

Now that the Miners have ticked off their first road victory, Edwards would like to build on it next week at home against Eldorado High.

“We want to start the first winning streak in school history,” he said. “We’re trying to create a lot of firsts.”
