When Ka’Deem Carey ran 22 yards on Canyon del Oro’s first play from scrimmage Friday night, it was clear the Dorados had no intention of taking #16 Peoria Sunrise Mountain lightly.

“We take every opponent the same,” Carey said. “We take it one game at a time.”

Friday night’s game was taken quickly. Quarterback Jason McBrayer completed a 34-yard pass to Blake Martinez, which set up a one-yard touchdown run by Carey. The Dorados scored 42 points in the first quarter and rolled to a 56-35 win.

Top-seeded CDO hosts #8 Glendale Apollo this Friday. Last week, the Hawks defeated Cave Creek Cactus Shadows, 52-21. Last year, the Dorados defeated Apollo 63-35 during their playoff run to a state title.

Quintin Kime had a 38-yard run to set up Carey’s second score. Carey finished his duty Friday with 95 yards on nine carries, over 10 yards a pop, and scored five touchdowns.

“I’m coming into (the playoffs) at 100 percent health,” Carey said.

He’ll be well-rested, too. Carey and most of the starting unit did not play in the second half after building a 56-14 lead.

The Dorados scored four touchdowns in the final four minutes of the first quarter.

After a time-out, McBrayer connected with Josh Brown on a 51-yard touchdown pass.

“The safeties were coming up on us,” McBrayer said. “We went to it right away.”

Following a three-and-out, McBrayer ran 20 yards for another touchdown. After another three-and-out, the Dorados got the ball back with 23 seconds left. McBrayer found Blake Martinez on a 59-yard touchdown pass to make it 35-0.

When it looked like the quarter would finally end, a fumble returned the ball to the Dorados at the Mustang 14. On the final play of the quarter, Carey went 14 yards for a touchdown to make it 42-0.

“We were explosive,” said CDO coach Dustin Peace. “In the first quarter, we were lights out.”

The Mustangs scored on the first play of the second quarter on an 80-yard touchdown pass from Josh Ackerman-Blake to Dre Bookman. The Dorados weren’t rattled. They showed they could score whenever they needed, led by Carey, McBrayer and Martinez.

Carey broke a 46-yard touchdown run on the Dorados first play of the second quarter. On the next play from scrimmage, Josh Brown picked off Ackerman-Blake and took it 33 yards to the house, his second touchdown of the night. The play completed a run of four consecutive touchdowns on four plays from scrimmage.

“We watched a lot of film,” McBrayer said. “Our line’s physical. The offensive line was the key.”

McBrayer finished 3-3 passing for 144 yards and two scores. It was his 11th straight game without an interception.

“One of the main things was not turning the ball over this year,” McBrayer said. “I’m proud of it.”

CDO’s second team was shut out in the second half, and the Mustangs scored three touchdowns in the fourth period. Peace wasn’t overly concerned.

“They get limited reps in practice,” Peace said. “To get the experience in a (playoff) game is valuable. Even some sophomores got reps.”

Apollo likes to throw the ball.

“We know that they pass a lot,” said McBrayer. “We want a test with a good passing game.”

Apollo’s quarterback Jonathan Brown passed for 1,540 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 63 percent completions. He also led the Hawks with 977 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns. Running back Richie Martinez gained 869 yards and 12 touchdowns. Chrisdeon Ayiyi led with 38 catches for 565 yards and 10 scores.
