At Sierra Vista, the Blue Devils scored 28 second-half points en route to a victory over the Colts.

Trailing 7-3 at the half, Buena opened the third quarter with two quick turnovers that opened the door for Sunnyside's easy win.

• Highlight reel: SS's Manny Vera rushed for 155 yards on 19 carries, but Alfred Leon stole the show with two third- quarter rushing TDs.

• Player of the game: Chris Howard. The senior caught three passes for 85 yards and two scores, including a 6-yarder from Julian Jones.

• By the numbers: 64. Nearly half of Buena's offensive yardage came on a 64-yard strike from J.T. May to Ryan Witt in the fourth quarter.

• He said it: "We got out of our game plan in the third quarter and it spiraled out of control after that." — Buena running backs coach Vince Pershing
