In its first game of the season, Corner Kenyon (UT) overthrew Herriman (UT) and quarterback Isaac Wilson threw for 450 yards and six touchdowns en route to an easy 45-7 victory. Last Friday, however, it was a different story for the Chargers as they faced a superior opponent.
Visiting national power Bishop Gorman (Nevada), the momentum was reversed and they were dominated by a score of 42-7. This time, Wilson was able to complete just 8 of 18 passes for 67 yards, one score and two interceptions.
On the other side, junior left quarterback Micah Alejado got off to a hot start, completing his first 11 pass attempts. He ended up throwing three touchdown passes and running for another.
His final score was a 43-yard bomb to Dylan Herman midway through the third quarter.
Defensively, senior cornerback Elijah Palmer led the way for Bishop Gorman with six. The other pick came courtesy of Jeremiah Hughes.
Next, Corner Canyon will visit Bingham (UT), while Bishop Gorman hosts the nation’s top-ranked team, Mater Dei (Calif.).
