If you break down Salpointe Catholic’s 12-0 run to the Division II state football semifinals, it’s impressive that Dennis Bene’s team has won every way possible. It won with 56 rushing attempts against Ironwood Ridge, and it won with just 10 rushes against Rincon/University. It won with just three completed passes against Tucson High. It won with 17 completions and 306 yards against Mountain View. Whatever it takes, the Lancers have been able to produce. And while the Lancers’ offense gets so much attention, averaging 49 points per game, the defense has five players who have made at least 10 tackles-for-loss: Brandt DavidsonKevin HamlettJake CasteelJay Williams and Taylor Powell. My only complaint? The AIA scheduled this week’s state semifinal to be played at Marana High School. Yes, the new field turf at MHS is terrific, but it is the most remote location possible for those deciding whether to attend.
