Falcons continue to win early in season
Team now 2-0 after beating Bradshaw Mountain
WILLIAMS - The Williams Elementary-Middle School Falcons came out strong against Prescott Valley's Bradshaw Mountain, standing up to their opponents with a strong defense while offensively running and passing the ball well. The Falcs are now 2-0 after beating Bradshaw 28-4 Sept. 2.
On offense, Williams quarterback Kohl Nixon went five for eight passing, throwing two touchdown passes and running for a third touchdown. Coty Baxter carried the ball 13 times for 83 yards, scoring one touchdown. Jorge Davalos had two receptions for 70 yards, scoring one touchdown and running the ball for 47 yards on eight carries. Wide receiver Leo Lopez had one reception for 25 yards and a touchdown.
Coach Herman Nixon said all of the offensive activity was only possible with the help of the Falcs' offensive line.
"I'd like to give credit to our offensive line Christian Plascencia, Alexis Soto, Jordan Brown, Kendall Brown and Andrew Payne. Without their effort the running backs and receivers couldn't have had the game they did," he said.
Nixon said the Falcon's defensive unit stepped up and played well against Bradshaw's offense.
"I am very proud of our defensive unit who held a big and physical Bradshaw Mountain to only 14 points," he said. "Our defensive ends Alexis Soto and Kendal Brown kept their offense from going outside, which made the difference in the game. Several of our defensive players had big games including Kohl Nixon who had two sacks, Christian Holmes who had six unassisted tackles and one sack, Jorge Davalos who had one sack and four unassisted tackles and Coty Baxter who knocked down several long passes from Bradshaw stopping any large gains by their offense. "
Williams now travels to Prescott Valley, taking on Glassford Hill Junior High today at 3:30 P.M.
