Lake Mead (10-1/4-0) | Pershing County (9-4/6-1)

 

It was Lake Mead vs Pershing County for the 2A NIAA State Title. The Eagels dominated and came away with a 49-6 win to clinch the 2A championship.

Lake Mead played Perishing County for the 2A NIAA Nevada State Championship.

On Tuesday, the first of the four championship games at Allegaint Stadium kicked off at 9 a.m., with Lake Mead Christian Academy taking on Perishing County for the 2A title.

Heading into the game, the Eagles outscored their opponents 512–71 and finished with a 9–1 record, 4–0 in their league. Lake Mead was the class of the 2A level all season, and they looked to finish off a story that started three years ago when former UNLV Rebel football players took over the program and started to build it up.

The Eagles were led by their freshman QB Jerry Meyer III, who, coming into the game, had thrown for 52 touchdown passes on the season. He had a trio of wide receivers, each having over ten touchdown receptions. The explosive Eagles offense gets all the credit, but their defense is stout and tough.

The Eagles came out and scored 21 first-quarter points, with all three touchdowns being caught by Antonio Spann. The first TD came on a go route that caught the Mustangs off guard. The second came on a skinny post route that saw Spann beat two Mustang defenders. And the third TD of the quarter came on another go route. 

The Mustangs’ offense was non-existent as the Eagles’ defense continued to hinder them. Perishing County couldn’t get their offense moving, and it was clear that Lake Mead was about to make this a boat race with their explosive offense.

In the second quarter, the action didn’t stop for the Eagles. They caused two Pershing County turnovers, both fumbles. The first fumble was returned for a touchdown by Lake Mead. On the next possession, as the Mustangs were driving down the field, they fumbled again, and two plays later, Lake Mead scored another touchdown. This time, Tyler Brooks was on the receiving end from Meyer III.

At the half, Lake Mead led 35-0.

With the running clock, Lake Mead forced the Mustangs to punt on their first possession. The Eagles then drove down and had a 16-yard touchdown reception from Luke Corpuz. The score was now 42–0, and there was no doubt who the champion would be at the 2A level; all that was left was the clock to strike zeros.

Once again, Lake Mead dominated the quarter even with the running clock. The Eagles’ tenacious defense and explosive offense were just too much for the Mustangs to handle. The game and the title were well within reach for Lake Mead, who now only had to finish the game.

With 8:20 left in the fourth quarter, the Mustangs finally got on the board with their touchdown, a 10-yard run. The score was now 42-6 after a failed two-point conversion. On their next possession, Lake Mead scored another touchdown, this time to Bowe Farmer, and had a 49–6 lead. That was the final score as Lake Mead won their first NIAA State championship.

The Eagles, coached by all former UNLV Football players and whose Athletic Director is former Raiders quarterback Jay Schroeder, finished a phenomenal season with a victory over the Mustangs. It’s been quite a turnaround since they took over a struggling program. For a senior class member who has been a part of the entire rebuild, this is a very gratifying experience, one they will never forget.

The former Rebels instilled a winning culture, a winning attitude, and a weight training program that separated them from both schools at the 2A level.
