Eagles rout Quest Prep

Boulder City High School rolled into the win column Friday with a dominant 62-0 performance over charter school Quest Preparatory.

The game was over before it started, as Quest Prep only had 14 players on the sidelines in uniform. In case you were wondering, it takes 11 players to compete in a game — on one side of the football.

It takes 11 more to play the other side, and usually a mixture of both to play special teams. Needless to say, the Knights were outmatched and outmanned against the Eagles, a team usually in that very position.

Boulder City scored on its opening drive, followed by two more touchdowns on the ensuing drives. After a botched snap by the Quest Preparatory quarterback, the Eagles recovered the football in the end zone for a safety and found themselves up 23-0 with just over half of the first quarter remaining.

Head coach Chris Morelli pulled his starters after that, but the backups came in and continued to roll. Just before the first quarter ended, Michael Martinelli rumbled into the end zone to give the Eagles a comfortable 29-0 edge.
