Running backs both score touchdowns in win over Patrick Henry

— The brothers McClendon — Monte Vista’s running back duo of Jahmon and Jamez — ran for 251 yards Friday night in the host Monarchs’ 29-6 win over Patrick Henry.

Jahmon, a sophomore, finished with 133 yards, while senior Jamez ran for 118. Each scored a touchdown for the Monarchs (2-1).

Monte Vista scored on its opening drive as Junior Pitoau punched it in from 3 yards out on a quarterback sneak. Jahmon McClendon found the end zone on the two-point conversion to give Monte Vista an 8-0 lead over the Patriots (1-2).

Early in the second half, Jahmon McClendon ran for a touchdown, increasing the Monarchs’ lead to 15-0.

Early in the fourth quarter, Jamez McClendon hit paydirt from 5 yards out, giving Monte Vista a 22-0 lead.

Patrick Henry got on the board midway through the fourth quarter on a touchdown pass from Bryan Pace to Ryan Savage. That drive was helped by a 77-yard pass from Pace to Tyjhay Reid.

Monte Vista put the game away for good a couple of minutes later. Torrey Mack intercepted a Patriots pass, bringing it back to the 10-yard line. A few plays later, Adero Johnson scored on a 1-yard dive.

The Monarchs racked up 326 yards of total offense — completely on the ground.

Conversely, all but 19 of Patrick Henry’s yards came in the air. Pace finished 10 of 26 for 171 yards and a touchdown.

Monte Vista is off this week before playing Crawford on Sept. 23.
