Las Vegas’ Calvary Chapel beats California counterpart

Two big plays were all Calvary Chapel’s football team needed Saturday to stay unbeaten.

An 85-yard touchdown run by A.J. Davis in the first quarter and an 80-yard scoring pass from Riley Clark to Bobby Buist in the third quarter lifted the Lions to a 13-0 win over Calvary Chapel (Calif.) at Faith Lutheran.

Davis put the Lions (2-0) ahead for good with his touchdown run midway through the first quarter in a game where both teams struggled to find consistency on offense.

Clark, a freshman, found Buist on the long scoring play in the third quarter. Clark, who threw five touchdown passes in the Lions’ 50-6 win over Silver Stage last week, was 5 of 12 with one interception and threw for 121 yards. Davis ran for 161 yards as the Lions outgained the Knights 280-162, with most of the damage done on the two scoring plays.

Calvary Chapel allowed an average of 40.7 points per game last year but has surrendered only six total points this season.
