At Sahuarita, what started as a dogfight changed quickly once Calvin Jenkins came in at quarterback and grabbed momentum for the Mustangs. After the change, Sahuarita scored 35 unanswered points in the second half. Sahuarita improved to 4-2 while Rio Rico fell to 4-2.

• Highlight reel: Late in the game, Sahuarita’s Geovan Neuser returned a blocked Rio Rico field-goal attempt 80 yards for a touchdown.

• Player of the game: Kayden Bedolla had three receptions for 76 yards and two touchdowns. He also came up with an interception in the red zone, which later led to a touchdown.

• By the numbers: 3. Despite having three turnovers in the first half, Sahuarita was still able to run away with its second straight win.

• He said it: “It’s a long journey, but our young men are learning what it takes to rise up for the next guy no matter what.” — Sahuarita coach David Rodriguez
