Boron's Bobcats had a homecoming Friday night, and the most welcome guests turned out to be the Mammoth Huskies.
Boron beat up on the undermanned Huskies, 52-0, behind a stellar performance by quarterback Austyn Fink. The senior went 13-for-20, with five touchdowns. The only blemish on his record was because of Mammoth's Tyler Wormhoudt, who intercepted Fink in the lost cause.
Wormhoudt, last week's Mammoth High School "Athlete of the Week" was bottled up by the Boron defense. He carried 20 times for 40 yards—a two-yard-per carry average. Leading the Mammoth offense was Alex Hamilton, who picked up 49 yards on just six carries.
On defense, Mammoth's Denis Orick stood with nine solo tackles and one assist, but it wasn't enough to stop Boron, whose record improved to 5-1, 2-0 in the conference. Mammoth dropped to 1-5 with the loss. The Huskies are 1-1 in High Desert League play.
Boron opened it up early, taking a 38-0 first-half lead that rendered the third and fourth quarters immaterial.
