Juan Villareal (68) celebrates with the rest of his team.
Sunnyside 69, Marana 0
For the second straight week, the Sunnyside High School football
team's defense allowed negative yards.
The Blue Devils (5-2, 4-0) allowed -4 yards to visiting Marana in a
69-point win last night, a week after allowing -71 in a 56-0 victory
Marana (0-7, 0-4) was unable to complete a pass against Sunnyside
and lost four yards on the ground.
Turning point: Sunnyside receiver
Mike Quiroz did his
impression of the Kansas City Chiefs' Dante Hall. He returned two
punts for touchdowns, and his 51-yard return with 4:34 left in the
first quarter put the Blue Devils up 14-0.
Key statistics: Sunnyside dominated on both sides of the
ball, outgaining the Tigers by 406 yards. The Blue Devils gained 402
total yards on offense. Xavier Smith led Sunnyside's ground attack
with 153 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.
Quotable: "It doesn't feel that good. We knew this team
was not going to be much of a challenge," Smith said about how it
felt to see 69-0 on the scoreboard.
