Prep football roundup: No. 1 Cleveland rolls vs. No. 5 Volcano Vista

RIO RANCHO — Josh Perry ran for 239 yards and five touchdowns, and fellow senior Nic Trujillo caught three TD passes from quarterback Evan Wysong as the No. 1-ranked Cleveland Storm scored the first eight times it had the ball in a 56-21 rout of No. 5 Volcano Vista on Friday night.

Early, the teams swapped touchdowns: Perry on a 5-yard run and the Hawks’ Tyler Stuart catching a 21-yard TD pass from quarterback Elliot Pasket-Bell. Those were followed by an 18-yard TD reception by Trujillo and a 30-yard scoring pass from Pasket-Bell to Tristan Cordova, making it 14-all.

Then, after Perry’s 15-yard touchdown run, the Hawks’ would-be tying drive was thwarted when Jeff Bem, the Storm’s placekicker intercepted Paskett-Bell.

Two plays later, Perry went around right end for a 63-yard touchdown run and the Hawks (5-2, 0-1 in 1-5A) never recovered against Cleveland (5-2, 1-0).
