FARMINGTON — The Navajo Prep football team continued its romp through the regular season by blowing out Cuba.
Eagles' quarterback Tyler Sorensen threw six touchdown passes as Prep dispatched of the Rams 50-0 in a game that ended via mercy rule early in the third quarter on Saturday in Cuba.
Prep head coach Rod Denetso said Cuba attempted to run the clock as a way to get the Eagles' offense out of rhythm.
"Teams are huddling up and taking their time," Denetso said. "Teams are running more and know they're outmanned. They wait and try to take the ball away from our offense, but we turn around and score in five or six plays."
Prep (7-1 overall, 2-0 District 1-2A) jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to a rushing and a receiving touchdown by Mikaele Mauga.
Mauga scored for a third time in the middle of the second quarter on a 98-yard touchdown pass from Sorensen.
Mauga finished with four touchdowns in the win and had 224 receiving yards on nine receptions, while Sorensen finished 17-of-22 for 365 yards through the air.
The Eagles' quarterback threw his fourth touchdown pass of the half with just under a minute left to give Prep a 36-0 lead at halftime.
The Eagles scored twice more to end the game with about eight minutes left in the third quarter.
Prep's shutout of Cuba (1-7, 1-2) was its sixth of the season. In all six shutouts, the Eagles have won by mercy rule.
Prep will play its final home game of the regular season on Friday when it hosts Navajo Pine (5-3, 2-1).
"For now, we're looking at one game at a time," Denetso said. "We don't want to overlook Pine. We're taking on every team like we're playing Clayton or Escalante. I think we deserve a little respect. We want to host a playoff game here at Navajo Prep and I think we deserve that."
