Beaver Dam scored first and held a 6-0 advantage after one quarter of play against Mountain View Christian School Friday night.

The Diamondbacks, however, would not score again in the contest while the home standing Saints reeled off 46 unanswered points to post a 46-6 non-league victory in Las Vegas.

The win improved MVCS to 1-3 overall while BDHS fell to 0-4.

The Diamondbacks got off to a good start when junior Chris Wilson bulled into the end zone from a yard out to put Beaver Dam up 6-0 midway through the opening quarter.

The lead held until six minutes remained in the first half when sophomore Alex Diaz scored the first of his four touchdowns on the night to put MVCS on top 8-6.

A key moment in the contest came on the final play of the first half when the Saints picked off a BDHS pass and returned it 72 yards for a touchdown to give MVCS a 16-6 halftime advantage.

Diaz scored on runs of 53 and 27 yards in the third quarter as the Saints increased their margin to 32-6 heading into the final period of play.

Following Diaz’ fourth TD of the night, the Saints capped the scoring on the final play of the game on a 74-yard fumble return.

The Diamondbacks will have a bye this weekend and then return to action on Oct. 4 when they open up Southern 1-A League play on the road against defending state champion Spring Mountain at the Spring Mountain Youth Camp on Mount Charleston.

The next home game for Beaver Dam will be Oct. 18 against Indian Springs.
