Recap of this week’s football action in the Yakima Valley | Prep Sports

CBBN

Eisenhower 14, Selah 12

Sunnyside 34, Prosser 23

PROSSER — Myles Newhouse caught a touchdown pass and ran for three more scores to lead the Grizzlies to a rivalry win.

Both teams’ high-powered offenses started slowly and Prosser defensive lineman Trey Webb came up with a big interception on a screen pass to stop a productive Sunnyside drive. The Mustangs’ defense put plenty of pressure on Logan Rodriguez early in the game, highlighted by sacks from Aiden Harris and EJ Hurtado.

Myles Newhouse finally broke the tie with a nine-yard run more than six minutes into the second quarter, and Prosser nearly responded by putting together a long touchdown drive of its own. Instead, Sunnyside’s defense held strong inside its own 10 yardline and the Mustangs missed a field goal.

A few plays later, Myles Newhouse outsprinted multiple defenders and went down the right sideline for a 68-yard touchdown. Prosser missed another opportunity when Kaiden Rivera’s long touchdown pass to Isaac Kernan with 39.3 seconds left before halftime got called back due to an illegal block.

Nehemiah Medrano’s 65-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the third quarter finally put the Mustangs on the board and sparked two scores in four minutes to give them a 15-14 lead. But Rodriguez answered by throwing a 25-yard touchdown pass to Brent Maldonado on the next drive.

Newhouse’s final touchdown put Sunnyside ahead by 19 before Chris Veloz caught a touchdown pass and then Rivera found the junior receiver in the end zone again for a two-point conversion. Prosser drove inside the 10-yard line one last time before Maldonado came up with a key defensive play, knocking down a pass in the end zone on fourth and two midway through the fourth quarter.

The win gave Sunnyside three of the last four games in the series after Prosser held on for a 28-21 win last spring. Another tough Lower Valley matchup against Zillah looms next week for the Mustangs, while the Grizzlies will host Hermiston in a nonleague game.
