Clovis North cemented its rise to the top of The Bee's high school football rankings early Friday night.
The Broncos sprinted to a 30-0 lead in the first quarter against Clovis East and went on to a 40-0 victory at Lamonica Stadium.
Coupled with Clovis' win at No. 1 Central, Clovis North's victory is expected to catapult it one spot to the top of the rankings next week.
But the Broncos (7-0, 2-0) won't have much time to celebrate -- they hit the Tri-River Athletic Conference gantlet next week when they play Central, followed by Clovis the following week.
Buchanan 20, Clovis West 16
In a Top 20 matchup of teams with losing records, the Bears -- wearing the visitor's white on their own campus because they share Veterans Memorial Stadium with the Golden Eagles -- rallied to win.
No. 16 Buchanan (3-4, 1-1) kept its TRAC hopes alive since it has games remaining against Clovis North and Clovis. No. 15 Clovis West (1-6, 0-2) faces Clovis East (2-5, 0-2) next week in a battle to get out of the TRAC cellar.
Bullard 42, Memorial 10
Dejonte Oneal continued to spur the No. 17 Knights' rushing game with 160 yards and two touchdowns as Bullard kept pace in the County/Metro Athletic Conference with Sanger and snapped the Panthers' two-game winning streak.
It was special teams that got things going for Bullard (5-2, 2-0), as Isaiah Justice returned the opening kickoff 99 yards and the first of Emil Tilghman's six PATS made it 7-0. Oneal had the other big play, a 54-yard touchdown run on the Knights' second play from scrimmage.
Niko Pacheco connected with Zach Carter for a 17-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the first quarter as Bullard built a 21-3 lead.
Justice also scored on a 2-yard run and his interception set up Trenton Barnes' 9-yard run that capped the scoring.
Sanger 45, Madera 37
The No. 11 Apaches survived, as Joshua Moreno's 34-yard interception return capped a 21-0 run to close the home victory.
Chris Ramirez was an efficient 9-for-11 passing with two touchdowns for Sanger (6-1, 2-0). Jacob Papaleo's only pass for the Apaches also went for a touchdown, to Moreno.
Alec Gamboa had three short touchdown runs and a 2-point conversion run and Jesus Jimenez 196 rushing yards for Madera (3-4, 0-2).
Edison 44, Madera South 19
The No. 12 Tigers (4-3, 1-1) blew past the winless Stallions, who led early 19-13 but never scored again in the CMAC game.
Edison's Blake Wright had a pair of touchdown runs, including one for 87 yards. Kevin Nutt scored on a 97-yard kickoff return and an 11-yard run. Each also ran for 2-point conversions.
Greg Rodriguez passed for three touchdowns for Madera South, two to Morgan Stroh.
Roosevelt 46, McLane 6
Jeremy Whigham rushed for 130 yards and three touchdowns, and Willie Fairman added 146 yards on the ground plus the first touchdown for the Rough Riders (4-3, 2-0) on a 74-yard run to knock the Highlanders (4-3, 1-1) out of a first-place tie in the North Yosemite League.
The win sets up a showdown next week for first place in the NYL between Roosevelt and Sunnyside (4-3, 2-0) after the Wildcats beat Hoover 31-21 Thursday.
Liberty-Madera Ranchos 21, Sierra 0
