Kendall Milton dazzles in a Buchanan victory while Clovis North secures a win on clutch play

It was business as usual for Kendall Milton.

The Georgia commit totaled three touchdowns, helping The Bee’s fourth-ranked Buchanan High to a 45-21 victory over No. 10 Clovis West in a Tri-River Athletic Conference football game Friday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Milton had missed several weeks because of a quad injury before returning last week against Central. He finished that game with 16 carries for 89 yards and two touchdowns.

Milton kept it going against Clovis West with two long touchdown runs and a long receiving touchdown, all in the second half.

In another TRAC game, No. 14 Clovis East scored a touchdown with 1 minute 38 seconds remaining to get within a point of tying Clovis North.

But Michael Jacot blocked the extra-point try as the 25th-ranked Broncos edged the Timberwolves 14-13.

Buchanan, Clovis North, Clovis West and Clovis are all 1-1 in the TRAC behind Central (2-0) and ahead of Clovis East (0-2).

CMAC: Memorial, Bullard winners

No. 8 Bullard rebounded from its County/Metro Athletic Conference-opening loss to San Joaquin Memorial with a 29-15 victory over No. 12 Sanger at Ratcliffe Stadium.

The Knights had a 10-7 lead at halftime before pulling away.

No. 7 Memorial had no trouble with Madera South, coming away with a 61-10 victory.

That leaves Memorial and Edison, which won Thursday night, as the only 2-0 teams in the CMAC. They play Friday at Memorial.

NYL: And then there were two

Sunnyside and Reedley are the only teams at 2-0 in the North Yosemite League.

Reedley beat McLane 45-15 Friday night. Sunnyside got there with a 51-7 win over Fresno on Thursday.

Roosevelt rallied with two fourth-quarter touchdowns to beat Hoover 26-17, leaving those teams 1-1.

North Sequoia leaders

Washington Union and Yosemite stamped themselves as the teams to beat in the North Sequoia League while flexing offensive muscle.

Yosemite, one year after going winless in its return to the NSL, beat Kerman 36-14 to move to 2-0 in league and 7-0 overall.

Washington opened play in the five-team league with a 47-27 win over Chowchilla.

Thriller in Visalia

A touchdown by Marcus Correia with 1:06 remaining gave undefeated No. 5 Redwood a 42-38 victory over No. 21 Golden West.

The Rangers capped the victory on Malachi Aguilar’s interception with 30 seconds remaining.
