CALLED – ABOUT HALF THE SCHOOLS IN SOUTHERN ARIZONA STRAPPING ON THEIR HELMETS TONIGHT. I’M JASON BARR. AND I’M ERICA WESTON. FOOTBALL SCORES ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. AND WE ARE UNDER CENTER – BRINGING YOU ALL THE ACTION WE START AT MARANA THE TIGERS WON A PLAYOFF GAME LAST SEASON FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1983 FOR REFERENCE..THAT’S WHEN LIONEL RICHIE AND PINK FLOYD WERE TOPPING THE CHARTS. HOSTING PERENNIAL POWER IRONWOOD RIDGE. THE NIGHTHAWKS WEARING GREEN HELMET STICKERS TO HONOR VERN FRIEDLI. THE LATE AMPHI COACH WAS A MENTOR TO IRONWOOD RIDGE COACH MATT JOHNSON. 1ST QUARTER, TIGERS UP 7-0…3RD AND 20, TRENTON BOURGUET HITS ALFRED EBUNOHA IN THE FLAT, FIGHTS OFF A COUPLE DEFENDERS, AND NOTHING BUT GREEN IN FRONT OF HIM. HE GETS KNOCKED OUT AROUND THE 10 YARD LINE. HUGE GAIN FOR THE TIGERS. TIGERS WOULD PUNCH IT IN, AFTER BOURGUET HANDS IT OFF TO ZACH ROBERTS. MARANA LEADS 14-0 AT THE END OF 1. 2ND QUARTER NOW, SAME SCORE… IRONWOOD RIDGE’S HEATH BEEMILLER AIRS ONE OUT TO ANDREW COOK WHO HAULS IT IN AT THE GOAL LINE. LOOKS LIKE A TOUCHDOWN BUT THEY NEXT STOP CATALINA FOOTHILLS. THE FALCONS WITH TWO BIG CHALLENGES THIS SUMMER. REPLACING FOUR YEAR STARTER RHETT RODRIGUEZ AT QUARTERBACK. AND OPENING UP AGAINST NATIONAL POWER SCOTTSDALE SAGUARO. TO THE FOOTHILLS WE GO. LATE IN THE FIRST QUARTER, WE HAD A POWER OUTAGE. THE LIGHTS WENT OUT. ABOUT A FIFTEEN MINUTE DELAY. WITH THE FALCONS DOWN 6-0, A CHANCE FOR JEFF SCURRAN AND COMPANY TO REGROUP. WHEN PLAY RESUMED IN THE SECOND QUARTER, SAGUARO’S MAX MASSINGALE HITS LOGAN PETTYJOHN. THIS GETS THEM INSIDE THE FIVE YARD LINE. THAT SETS UP THIS.. LEWIS LAROY BANGS IT IN.. 13-0 SCOTTSDALE SAGUARO THEN CATALINA FOOTHILL PUNTING… IT’S PETTYJOHN AGAIN THIS WAS A TOUGH WAY FOR THE FALCONS TO OPEN THE SEASON PETTYJOHN SCORES CATALINA FOOTHILLS FALLS, 41-13 SALPOINTE HOSTING PHOENIX ST. MARY’S IN WHAT’S KNOWN AS THE ED DOHERTY CLASSIC. 1ST QUARTER, CHECK OUT THE RUN BY SALPOINTE’S BIJAN ROBINSON HOW GOOD ARE HIS MOVES? STILL CAN’T BRING HIM DOWN. FINALLY FORCED OUT ON THE SIDELINES THEN SALPOINTE’S RODRIGO NIETO SPINNING IT TIGHT TO LATHAN RANSON TOUCHDOWN. 7-0 LANCERS ST MARY’S GOING TO THE GROUND BUT A FUMBLE… WHERE’S THE BALL. THE LANCERS HAVE IT. AND BIJAN ROBNSON MCCLOUD MAKES THEM PAY SALPOINTE WINS 47-6. KEEPING THE ED DOHERTY TROPHY SO FAR, TUCSON HIGH’S BIGGEST OPPONENT HAS BEEN MOTHER NATURE. THE MONSOON HAS MADE PRACTICING AT GRIDLEY FIELD A CHALLENGE – FORCING THE BADGERS TO USE CHERRY FIELD. THEY’RE FORTUNATE TO START ON THE ROAD. INSTEAD OF BATTLING MOTHER NATURE, TUCSON IS BATTLING BUENA. THE COLTS COME IN HAVING LOST TWENTY ONE IN A ROW. BUENA STRIKES 1S THOUGH… JOVANI BORBON WITH A DUMP PASS OVER THE MIDDLE TO KHALIL GARDLEY IN THE END ZONE. 6-0 BUENA, BUT THE EXTRA POINT IS NO GOOD. STILL IN THE 1ST, TUCSON’S JESUS MONTANO WITH THE KEEPER FROM ABOUT 20 YDS OUT FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. BADGERS UP 7-6. 2ND QRTR NOW, MONTANO GIVES IT TO DANIEL SOLOMON WHO PUNCHES IT IN FROM THE 2. TUCSON WITH A 14-6 LEAD. FIRST HALF WINDING DOWN… BUENA’S BORBON AGAIN TO GARDLEY FROM NEAR MID FIELD, ALL THE WAY FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. THE EXTRA POINT IS BLOCKED. TUCSON WINS 29-12. TO THE EAST SIDE OF TUCONS WE GO. IT’S PALO VERDE AT TANQUE VERDE. THE HAWKS LOOKING TO TANK THE TITANS NO SCORE IN THE FIRST QUARTER, PALO VERDE FACING 4TH AND ELEVEN. QUARTERBACK DEVANTE BATES CAN’T FIND ANYONE OPEN – SO HE’S GOING TO TAKE OFF. BATES GETS THE FIRST DOWN AND THE TOUCHDOWN. IT’S 7-0. NEXT POSESSION, TANQUE VERDE TRYING TO GET IT BACK. QB AIDEN GONZALEZ AVOIDS A SACK. FLIPS TO TO GAVIN JOHNSON WHO AVOIDS TACKLERS. AND JOHNSON TAKES IT ALL THE WAY INSIDE THE FIVE YARD LINE. SETS UP A TOUCHDOWN TO MAKE IT 7-6. END OF THE FIRST QUARTER, GONZALEZ SCORES ON QB KEEPER BUT PALO VERDE COMES BACK TO WIN 31-27 RIO RICO AT CATALINA HIGH WE PICK THIS GAME UP IN THE THIRD QUARTER, RIO RICO WITH THE BALL, DOWN 3-0 IN THE TIHRD QUARTER, FRANK ROMERO… INTERCEPTION BY CATALINA’S PHILIPPE KIJANA THE TROJANS TRYING TO MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN, MALIK MARTIN TAKES THE HANDOFF AND HE’S GOING TO TAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE ENDZONE. CATALINA WITH A 31-0 WIN OVER RIO RICO RINCON HOSTING PUEBLO ON THEIR BRAND NEW FIELD COURTESY OF THE THE ARIZONA CARDINALS. A RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY UNVELING THE FIELD AT RINCON PRIOR TO THE GAME. OFF THE INITIAL KICKOFF…WHAT A WAY TO START… ADRYAN GONZALEZ OF PUEBLO TAKES THE KICKOFF ALL THE WAY BACK, A 91 YARD RETURN FOR A TOUCHDOWN. AS PUEBLO TAKES A VERY EARLY 6-0 LEAD. THEY WOULD MISS THE EXTRA POINT. LATER IN THE FIRST, OMAR IBANEZ WITH THE CARRY, TAKES IT 60 YARDS TO THE HOUSE FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. THEY’D CONVERT ON THE 2 POINT CONVERSION. PUEBLO WIN BIG, TOPPING RINCON 58-.0 SCORES ARE CRAWLING BELOW ON OUR TICKER BUT WE WANTED TO MENTION SABINO DEFEATS CASA GRANDE 34-25 RYAN MACBRAYER WINS IN HIS HEAD COACHING DEBUT AND U OF A SOCCER WITH A GOOD WIN TO OPEN THE SEASON AT OKLAHOMA. GUY, STELLA, BACK TO YOU.
