Roundup: Golfers finish third at state meet

Closing the final chapter of what’s been a dominant dynasty the past four years, Boulder City High School girls golf team finished third in the 3A state meet at Boulder Creek Golf Club on Tuesday, Oct. 22.

Ending their historic run with seniors Sydney Krumm and Makaela Perkins, the Lady Eagles won a pair of 3A state championships, while finishing as the runner-up in 2016.

“We’ve done some great things as a program the four years Sydney and Makaela have been here,” head coach Andy Schaper said. “I’m very proud of what they’ve been able to accomplish. Those two deserve a lot of credit for the success that we’ve had. This year it just didn’t work out for us.”

Finishing their high school careers, Krumm placed third with an overall score of 180, while Perkins finished seventh with a score of 188.

Truckee’s Ryan Flynn won the individual title with a score of 143, and Pahrump Valley’s Breanne Nygaard led all Southern Nevada golfers with a score of 154.

Placing 14th in her first state meet appearance, freshman Camryn Schaper shot a score of 199.

Football

Boulder City High School’s football team defeated Rancho 38-0 on Friday, Oct. 18, continuing to build momentum as the season progresses

“This was a good team win for us,” head coach Chris Morelli said. “We started out a little slow, but we picked it up and won another important game. I’m proud of the way we played.”

Playing a balanced style of football, the Eagles scored two touchdowns through the air and one on the ground on offense, while adding both a defensive and special teams score.

“All around we executed,” Morelli said. “We’re a really deep team and can beat our opponents in a variety of ways. The defense was absolutely phenomenal like they’ve been all season and we did a nice job creating big plays and staying balanced on offense.”

Senior quarterback Parker Reynolds and junior quarterback Dakota Christian kept the offense at a high pace, as senior running back Devon Walker and junior Matt Felsenfeld kept the offense balanced.

Playing his best game of the season, Reynolds completed 13 of 18 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns, while Christian added a big play presence with 99 yards on 2 of 3 passing. Walker rushed for 54 yards on seven carries and caught two passes for 27 yards and a touchdown pass. Felsenfeld rushed for 26 yards and a touchdown on three carries.

Junior Scott Bahde caught two passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, Felsenfeld scored on a 25-yard fumble recovery and junior Deavin Lopez scored on a 50-yard punt return.

Forcing the fumble was Christian, who made three tackles. Junior Trey Davis led the Eagles with nine tackles and a sack. Junior Conner Garrison also generated a quarterback sack.

Currently sitting in second place in the 3A Sunrise League standings with a 3-1 record, tonight’s matchup against Sunrise Mountain (2-2) is a must-win for the Eagles. Due to tiebreaker rules, if the Eagles lose to the Miners, they’ll be out of playoff contention.

“We’ve stressed this week that this is a must-win game and the guys are taking this serious,” Morelli said. “It’s crazy to think that you can beat Moapa and still not make the playoffs but that’s where we are and we’re ready to go out there and play hard. We know that Sunrise Mountain knocked Virgin Valley out of the playoffs last year. They’re a really good team and we’re preparing to give them everything we have.”

Boys soccer

Dropping a heartbreaker to SLAM Academy on Oct. 17, Boulder City High School boys soccer team was unable to overcome a 2-1 deficit.
