The offensive struggles continued for the Beaver Dam High football program as the Diamondbacks were blanked 38-0 Friday afternoon by defending state 1-A champion Spring Mountain at the Spring Mountain Youth Camp on Mount Charleston.
The game was the 1-A South League opener for both schools. Beaver Dam dropped to 0-5 overall while Spring Mountain improved to 5-0.
The Eagles got on the scoreboard quickly Friday scoring a touchdown in the first 90 seconds of play. They added a score later on to grab a 14-0 advantage after one quarter of play.
Spring Mountain scored on the first play of the second quarter to boosts its margin to 22-0 and then scored in the closing seconds of the period to take a 30-0 lead at the halftime break.
The Eagles closed out the scoring with a touchdown midway through the third quarter.
Meanwhile, the D-Backs struggled to find the end zone as they were shut out for the second time this season.
Beaver Dam has scored three touchdowns on the season with one of those a defensive score in the season opener against El Capitan. Senior Cesar Soto has scored two touchdowns while junior Chris Wilson has the other.
The D-Backs will look to get their first win of the season, as well as get their offense on track, Friday when they travel to Beatty to face the Hornets in a league contest. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. The Hornets are 1-2 overall on the season and are coming off a loss at home to Green Valley Christian.
Friday’s game will be the final road trip of the season for Beaver Dam. The D-Backs will play their final three contests of the season at home in the Snake Pit starting Oct. 18 against Indian Springs.
