Jonney Ponce had another stellar football game with 149 yards of rushing and three touchdowns to help Delta's Panthers rout the Huskies of Battle Mountain 48-8 last Friday night in Edwards.
Ponce carried the ball just nine times for his 149 yards and three touchdowns.
He was six of seven kicking extra points to give him half of the Panthers' 48 points.
Delta generated 81 yards of offense through the air and had 237 yards on the ground for a total of 318 yards.
Cade Gafford was four for seven passing for 66 yards and a touchdown while freshman Kole Roberts completed one pass in two attempts for 15 yards.
Ryan Whiteside caught two passes for 48 yards and a touchdown with teammates Seth Mewhinney (So), Kory Mills (So) and Eian Baier (Jr) each catching one pass.
Behind Ponce in the rushing department, Kodie Komies (So) had six carries for 21 yards and Derek Horn (Jr) ran for 47 yards and two touchdowns on three carries.
Delta is 5-2 overall and has a 4-1 3A WSL record. The Panthers still have league-leading Palisade (7-0 and 5-0) and Rifle (5-2 and 4-1) on their schedule.
