Bobcats rebound from loss for easy win over Jaguars

Citizen Staff Writer





The Cienega High School football team began its Class 4A Kino region schedule in dominating fashion.

The Bobcats (4-2, 1-0) defeated Desert View on the road 42-3.

Cienega built a 35-0 lead at halftime, scoring on all five of its possession in the first two quarters.

Senior David Abeyta scored three touchdowns for the Bobcats. He caught a 39-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Seth Mejias-Brean for the first score of the game and then, in the third quarter, scored on a 78-yard pass from backup quarterback Stephen Keck.

Abeyta also scored a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter.

“Our coaches preach every week that we need to come out and play hard no matter who the team is,” Abeyta said.

“We felt Desert View had a couple of good receivers we needed to stop. Just coming off a loss last week, we wanted to come back fired up.”

Abeyta finished with 120 yards receiving on three catches.

David Winkles scored two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter of 13 and 2 yards.

The Jaguars (2-4) were held to 93 total yards.

“We turned the ball over a lot last week. We didn’t turn it over tonight,” Cienega coach Nemer Hassey said. “The key is we got to protect the football in big games.”

Cienega lost to Canyon del Oro last week.

Before the game, there was a moment of silence for Desert View graduate Johnny Smith, a freshman at Wabash (Ind.) College, who died Oct. 5 at his fraternity house.

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
