The Pahrump High School Trojans roll into Mesquite Friday night with a lot to prove after suffering a stinging defeat at the hands of the Buckaroo’s from Lowery High School (Winnemucca). Host Pahrump was up by four touchdowns but lost 46-42, in the last minute of the game. The Trojans feature a spread double wing formation which puts a lot of stress on defenses. The Trojans dress only 23 players this season and were considered a rebuilding team after losing 2600 yards of rushing offense from 2018. That notion was changed in the Lowery game as Tony Margiotta ran up 201 yards and three T.D.’s. Andrew Arena added 97 yards on the ground for the Trojans. Leading the way for the Trojans is junior quarterback Dylan Wright who is a versatile passer on the run. The Trojans finished last season 5-0 in Sunset League play and lost to Churchill in the Nevada State Championship semi-finals. “They have more speed this year, so we have to be ready for them,” said Bulldog coach Matt Woods. “They are as good as last year and they will test our defense.” The Dawgs won last year’s match up 26-24.
