Beatty football falls to powerhouse to end season

Beatty Coach James Robertson was determined to put up a good fight against Pahranagat Valley despite missing four starters off his roster, which included his top running back.

The Hornets played for pride but fell to the Panthers 38-6.

The Alamo team scored 32 points against the Hornets in the first quarter and one TD in the fourth. The Hornets (4-6 overall, 3-4 Division IV Southern) scored their only TD in the fourth quarter.

Alamo (10-0, 7-0) with the win increased their winning streak to 91 games. The team is the sixth-ranked school in the country in eight-man football and the number one school in eight-man in Nevada.

In the game, Alamo QB Tabor Maxwell threw for 158 yards and his backup Brodey Maxwell threw for 64 yards. On the ground the lead rusher for the Panthers was Austin Matthews, who rushed for 60 yards.

The lead receiver was Culen Highbe with 100 yards and five receptions.

 

In other Division IV playoff games, the Muckers lost to Spring Mountain 72-14. The advancement of Spring Mountain could mean the Panthers and the Golden Eagles could square off again.

On Friday, Pahranagat Valley, the number one seed, will host Virginia City, the number two seed, at 7 p.m. and Spring Mountain, the number two seed, will travel to play the number one seed from the North, Whittell, for a 7 p.m. game in Lake Tahoe. The winners will meet in a location TBA depending on who wins.
