Top seed stymies Mustangs’ upset bid

Citizen Staff Report

No. 16-seeded Sahuarita had No. 1 Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep on the ropes Friday night, but it couldn’t deliver the knockout punch.

The upset-minded Mustangs led 13-7 at halftime on the road, but couldn’t hold on and lost 28-13.

Sahuarita finishes its season 6-5, while Notre Dame (11-0) moves on to play No. 9 Cottonwood Mingus in a quarterfinal game next week.

The Mustangs rushed for 244 yards in the loss. Starting running back Allonte Singfield missed the final week of the regular season with an injury, but returned Friday to rush for 205 yards on 19 carries.

He had runs of 42 and 44 yards in the second half.

Sahuarita quarterback Kody Day opened the scoring with a 28-yard run to put the Mustangs up 6-0.

After Notre Dame took a 7-6 lead, Sahuarita’s Brandon Rakowski scored from two yards out to give the Mustangs the lead.

Sahuarita trailed 21-13 and was driving in the fourth quarter, but the Saints sacked Day on fourth down to end the threat.

Our Digital Archive

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.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
