■ Virgin Valley 52, Pahrump Valley 7 — At Pahrump, the Bulldogs took advantage of three early miscues to sprint to a 26-7 first-quarter lead en route to the easy victory.

Virgin Valley (3-1) recovered a botched kickoff at the Pahrump 3, and two plays later Richard Vidal scored on a 3-yard run. Less than three minutes later, the Trojans (0-3) fumbled the snap on a punt, giving the Bulldogs the ball at the Pahrump 35. That set up a 35-yard touchdown pass from Humberto Urias to Kyler Hughes.

Vidal added another 3-yard touchdown run before Pahrump’s Jonathan Mitchell scored on an 89-yard kickoff return to provide the lone score for the Trojans, whose losing streak stretched to 21 games.
