Jacob Begay probably had the highlight play of the night for Coconino. He returned a Prescott fumble 94 yards for a score in the fourth quarter to put the exclamation point on the win.
Coconino held Prescott to just 3-of-19 passing as a team for 52 yards. The Panthers picked off the Badgers once as Trever Petersen got his hands on a Prescott pass.
Coconino gets Mohave next week on Friday at home at 4 p.m., taking the early game of a doubleheader at Cromer Stadium.
Eagles 50, Thunderbirds 7
Well, Coconino had a blowout win, so why not Flagstaff too?
The Eagles routed a struggling Mohave team in Bullhead City as Flagstaff also gets to 3-0 overall and Mohave drops to 0-3. After two straight weeks of close calls Flagstaff — and Coconino — had breathing room in a game that wasn’t close at all.
Mohave, which scored for the first time all season Friday night, has now been outscored a whopping 175-7 through three games this season. The Thunderbirds finally broke through the wall that had blocked their end zone all season against Flagstaff’s second and third string in the fourth quarter.
In the first half alone Flagstaff running back Luis Jaramillo had five touchdowns and Morgan Bewley had a few as well as the Eagles took a 44-0 lead into the break.
