Roundup: BCHS sees success on gridiron

Boulder City High School’s flag football team picked up a pair of victories this week, defeating SLAM Academy on Jan. 9 and Del Sol on Monday, Jan. 13.

Rebounding from their Jan. 7 defeat against Moapa Valley, the Lady Eagles blanked the Bulls 20-0, followed by a 15-6 victory over defending 3A state champion Dragons.

“It was really important for us to bounce back,” senior quarterback Makaela Perkins said. “We lost our confidence after that loss, but we definitely found it again after our last two games and are back in our groove.”

Finding their groove against the Bulls, Perkins connected with senior Erin Taggard for a pair of passing scores and senior Jasmyn Curl ran a score in.

Against the Dragons, Perkins found senior Makena Arboreen in the end zone and senior Emily Rinella ran for a score. Rinella also generated an interception on defense.

“Beating the defending state champs was big for us,” head coach Kevin Ruth said. “They are very well coached and physical team. The girls really stepped up.”

Looking to add to their winning streak, the Lady Eagles will travel to Chaparral on Friday, Jan. 17, followed by a road contest at Western on Wednesday, Jan. 22.

The Lady Eagles were defeated 1,374-553. Karsen Jolley bowled a 334 and Everynn Andrade added a score of 209 as the lone bowlers for the girls.

Playing two matches this week, the Eagles will host Western at Boulder Bowl today, Jan. 16, followed by a road contest on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at Sam’s Town.
