Canyon Del Oro

The Dorados quest for balance may have been achieved last Friday.

CDO racked up 191 rushing yards and 192 passing yards as it rolled over Pueblo 52-0 at home, moving to a sparkling 9-0 on the season.

Junior running back (and recent recipient of a scholarship offer from Arizona State University) Ka'Deem Carey averaged nearly 18 yards a touch, rushing for 158 yards on nine carries and scoring two touchdowns. The passing game was equally dominant, as senior quarterback Mike Lewis completed nine passes for 155 yards and three touchdowns. Senior wide receiver Jared Tevis hauled in a 38-yard strike in the first quarter to score, finishing with two catches for 51 yards, and junior running back Eddie Smith ended the game with two catches for 32 yards, and reeled in a 10-yard pass to open the scoring for CDO. Senior wideout Ryan Petersen scored the Dorados' final points of the game on a one-yard pass early in the third quarter.

Senior wide receiver Josh Robbins led all pass-catchers with three grabs for 42 yards, including a 10-yarder from Lewis just before halftime. Robbins also scored on defense, returning a fumble for a touchdown early in the second quarter.

The Dorados have a week off before hosting 7-1 Sabino at home on Nov. 6.

Ironwood Ridge

Last season, the Nighthawks and the Sunnyside Blue Devils split two close games that both went down to the wire.

This season, Sunnyside had the upper hand, winning 35-14 over visiting Ironwood Ridge and sending the Nighthawks home with a 4-5 record.

Despite the loss, Ironwood Ridge's standout senior running back Adrian Brahler was impressive on the ground, racking up 122 yards on 17 carries and scoring twice. Junior quarterback Tyler D'Amore threw for 174 yards on 16 completions, with two interceptions.

Junior wide receiver Austin Ballard led all Nighthawk receivers with six catches for 83 yards, and senior Matt Walter hauled in three catches for 61 yards.

Ironwood Ridge has a week off before going on the road at Mountain View on Nov. 6.

Pusch Ridge

The Lions (7-1) racked up 458 yards of total offense in a 61-8 drubbing of San Carlos last Friday.

Senior Greg Schimke threw for six touchdown passes and 185 yards on 10 completions. Three of the touchdowns went to senior running back Chris Goodwillie, who finished the game with 35 yards on those three catches. Senior wide receivers Mitch Woody and Trever Cook also reeled in three grabs apiece, finishing with 65 and 63 yards, respectively. On the ground, senior running back Brett Overstreet bulldozed for three touchdowns and 113 yards on 12 carries.

The Lions take on Ray this Friday at 7 p.m., in the final game of their regular season.
