•Lowry running back Jace Billingsley didn’t touch the ball many times Friday night. But when he did, the majority of time it went for six points.

Billingsley rushed for 208 yards on six carries, finding the end zone three times on the ground. However, he also caught two passes for 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

With the Buckaroos leading 7-0, four minutes into the game, a lightning storm caused an hour delay. Lowry came out electric after that, taking a 52-3 lead after the first half of play.

Sparks got on the board with a 37-yard field goal by Esteban Bravo in the first quarter.

“We don’t tackle very well, and Billingsley is a strong runner,” Sparks football coach Rob Kittrell said.

Both teams scored a touchdown in the second half. The Railroaders got into the end zone the only time in the game thanks to a 5-yard TD pass from Geo Vasquez to Bravo.

Kittrell said about the only bright spot of the night was James McCarty, who racked up 76 yards on the ground on 19 carries.

Sparks (0-6, 0-5 in 3A North) will look to snap its winless streak Thursday when it hosts South Tahoe at 7:30 p.m.
