Paisley Nickelson’s 1-yard touchdown run and Noah Alvares’ extra point with 25 seconds remaining on Friday night gave host Palo Verde a 21-20 win against Green Valley.

Brady DeNardin passed for a pair of touchdowns, including a 20-yard scoring strike to Isaiah Wolf on the final play of the first half for a manageable 14-7 halftime deficit.

But Palo Verde fumbled the opening kickoff of the second half and Green Valley quickly scored for a 20-7 lead.

The Panthers cut into the lead on a DeNardin to Edward Rhambo touchdown pass, and recorded two blocks on a Green Valley field goal attempt and extra point.

Both schools now have 2-1 records, but Palo Verde has more momentum after rallying for the win.

“The kids exploded with exuberance after the game,” Palo Verde coach Joe Aznarez said. “It was a total team effort — all of the kids.”
