Pahrump Warriors top Faith Lutheran in 13U football

Wilkerson ran for 70 yards, including his 49-yard touchdown run during the fourth quarter, and threw for 50 yards as the Warriors improved to 5-1. Murray opened the scoring with a 25-yard run in the first quarter and pushed that to 13-0 on Mendoza’s 4-yard scoring burst. Mendoza rushed for 55 yards as the Warriors totaled 171 yards on the ground.

The Crusaders closed the gap with a fourth-quarter touchdown pass before Wilkerson’s touchdown iced the game for the Warriors.
