Prep capsules
Fort Sumner 42, Eunice 7
Records:
Eunice 1-2, Fort Sumner 3-0
Impact: Fort Sumner’s spot at the top of the Class 1A rankings should be secure for another week.
Difference: The Foxes broke a scoreless tie with a 28-point second quarter that featured three touchdown runs by senior Jeremy Gauna and a fourth score on a 90-yard interception return by his younger brother, Jarrod.
Difference makers: Fort Sumner’s defense limited Eunice’s spread-offense passing attack to just 114 yards.
By the numbers: 7 — average yards for Fort Sumner on 42 rushing attempts.
On deck: The Foxes take on rival Santa Rosa, also 3-0 and ranked fourth in Class 2A, next week in Santa Rosa.
Quotable: “It was a sluggish start, but Eunice is not bad at all. They’ve got good size. … I would say our secondary played well against their spread offense.” — Fort Sumner coach Dexter McDaniel.

Muleshoe 35, Shallowater 7
Records:
Muleshoe 3-0, Shallowater 1-2.
Difference: Mules rolled up more than 400 yards, including nearly 150 through the air.
Difference makers: Senior Brady Black was nothing if not efficient, carrying seven times for 154 yards and catching two passes for 57. He scored three touchdowns, all on runs of at least 30 yards.
By the numbers: 1 — difference between rushing attempts (22) and passes (21) for Muleshoe. The Mules averaged more than 11 yards a pay on the ground.
On deck: After back-to-back road games, the Mules host Seminole on Friday night.
