Canyon Del Oro

Canyon Del Oro's Dusty Peace visited alma mater Flowing Wells for the first time as a head coach, and his team gave him a homecoming present – a convincing 35-7 victory over the Caballeros.

Flowing Wells held CDO's standout running back Ka'Deem Carey to his lowest rushing total of the season with 73 yards on eight carries, but the Caballeros couldn't keep him out of the end zone, as the junior scored four times, once on a 79-yard kickoff return in the third quarter. Senior Jared Tevis scored another special teams touchdown on a 49-yard punt return early in the first quarter to open the scoring for the Dorados. Unbeaten CDO hosts Pueblo (2-5) this Friday at 7 p.m.

Ironwood Ridge

The Nighthawks improved to 4-4 on the season with the help of someone named Fischer. Not Jake Fischer, last season's all-everything back now wearing an Arizona Wildcat jersey. Last Friday, younger brother Mitch Fischer spent time in the end zone for Ironwood Ridge in a 21-13 win over visiting Sierra Vista Buena.

Early in the first quarter, Fischer scored on a two-yard touchdown run. Then, in the third quarter, the sophomore snagged an interception and returned the ball 45 yards for a score and Ironwood Ridge's final points of the game.

Senior running back Adrian Brahler again carried the bulk of the load on the ground with 19 carries for 85 yards. Junior quarterback Tyler D'Amore finished with 123 yards through the air on six completions. Reeling in those passes were junior Trevor Wesley with one catch for 73 yards and senior Matt Walter with two grabs for 35 yards.

Ironwood Ridge travels to Sunnyside this Friday to take on the Blue Devils at 7 p.m.


After a loss to rival Mountain View in a makeup game last Monday, first-year 4A Kino member Marana got its first look at intra-region competition against powerhouse Cienega. The Bobcats rushed for 227 yards on Friday en route to a 56-14 victory over the Tigers, who fell to 3-4 on the season.

A bright spot for Marana was the performance of senior Josh Boak. Boak, a running back who stepped in at quarterback against Mountain View, rushed for 73 yards, and adding another 114 through the air, including a 35-yard touchdown pass to senior running back Terry Helsel late in the fourth quarter.

Marana, which had previously struggled in the passing game, counted heavily on Helsel, who caught four passes for 74 yards, and also saw a solid contribution from junior wideout Kord Catt (two catches for 24 yards).

Marana continues 4A Kino competition this Friday as they host Desert View at 7 p.m.

Pusch Ridge

The Lions (6-1) recorded their fourth shutout of the season and their sixth straight game with more than 40 points as they rolled over Winkelman Hayden, 49-0. Senior quarterback Greg Schimke completed eight of nine passes for 142 yards and three touchdowns, an average of nearly 18 yards per completion. Senior wideouts Trever Cook and Mitch Woody both finished the game with two catches, Cook's for 64 total yards, and Woody's for 50 yards.

On the ground, senior Brett Overstreet led all ball carriers with 42 yards on four touches.

Pusch Ridge goes on the road at San Manuel this Friday at 7 p.m.
