Ja’Shawn Scroggins passed for 300 yards and five touchdowns for the Las Vegas High football team in a 42-28 win against visiting Adelanto of California.

Miles Davis had more than 100 receiving yards and three touchdowns, tight end Junior Carmona caught a scoring pass and Jaelin Gray also found the endzone.

“We played well. We matched their intensity,” Las Vegas coach Erick Capetillo said. “Our defense balled out.”

The Wildcats forced four turnovers, including an interception from Kevin Covarrubias.
