A pair of running backs scored a pair of touchdowns apiece, and Colton Audsley set a school record to lift the Bradshaw Mountain football team past Mohave Friday night, 34-20, in Prescott Valley.
After the Bears' defense forced a Mohave punt on the game's first possession, Audsley ran the pigskin back 70 yards for his fourth return touchdown of the season - and a single-season program record.
He now has three punt returns and one kickoff return in 2013.
Jose Carlos and Shane Evans, meanwhile, led the ground game.
Carlos, a senior, rushed in with 4:43 left in the second period to stake Bradshaw to a 14-0 lead.
Fellow senior Evans moved in from 16 yards out in the third, and reached paydirt again from 15 yards out on the first play of the fourth quarter.
Evans finished with 110 yards, while Carlos contributed 58.
Nick Martensen added 54 yards in the air on five catches.
The Bears moved up in to No. 11 on the AIA's Division 3 rankings. They close out this week with a tough one at No. 4 Queen Creek. The finish could determine whether or not the Bears reach the AIA state playoffs, which open Nov. 8.
