In their previous meeting, Cholla
delivered Palo Verde
a punishing 35 - 14 defeat. This time around? Just more of the same. Cholla picked up a decisive 'W' against Palo Verde, finishing up at 62 - 23.
Cholla's offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 34 points in the first half. That put it at a 34 - 7 advantage. Its success only continued in the second half, where it racked up an additional 28 points.
Cholla can chalk up much of its success to the efforts of senior Jordan Porter, who picked up 202 yards on the ground. This marked the 5th consecutive game in which Porter had 100+ rushing yards. Devin Stubblefield was an active contributor as well and provided 164 receiving yards. This was the 3rd game in a row in which Stubblefield had 100 or more yards receiving.
One positive for Palo Verde, at least, was the performance of Cesar Rose. The talented underclassman ran for 66 yards and also punched in one touchdown.
The win bumped Cholla's record up to 3-2. The defeat dropped Palo Verde's record to 1-4.
