Reed dominated from the initial whistle Friday night at North Valleys, breezing to a 58-0 win in both team’s High Desert League opener.
The Raiders (5-1, 1-0) racked up 458 yards of offense in their fifth straight win. They’re averaging 55 points a game since falling at Clayton Valley Charter (Concord, Calif.) in the season opener.
The Panthers (0-5, 0-1) failed to put points on the board for the third straight week.
Junior quarterback Camerson Emerson was nearly perfect, completing 8-of-9 passes for 197 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Robert Ferrel hauled in one of the scores, finishing with 53 yards on a pair of grabs. Isaac McCoy was responsible for Emerson’s other touchdown, a 48-yarder. It was his only reception.
Running back Tre Bussey only had eight carries in the rout, but still found the end zone three times. He finished with 82 yards (10.3 yards per carry).
Reed now prepares for what may as well be the biggest regular season game of the year. The Raiders will play host to Reno on Friday night in what is believed to be the de facto High Desert League title game.
The Huskies (6-0, 1-0) are the only unbeaten 4A North team.
