At Cholla, Nogales came in with all the momentum after a big win last week in Douglas. The game started off with a bang when the Apaches scored 28 straight points in the first quarter to improve to 2-2 while Cholla fell to 1-3.
• Highlight reel: Nogales’ Jason Luna had two big plays: One was a 48-yard reception for a touchdown and the second was a 63-yard catch for another score.
• Player of the game: Cody Colgate scored three touchdowns and ran for 201 yards to lead the Apaches.
• By the numbers: 2. Back-to-back fumbles by Cholla at the beginning of the game gave Nogales the momentum, and the Apaches never let go of it.
• He said it: “We’re going to get ready, we’re gonna get this thing going and hopefully be 3-2 at this time next Friday.” — Nogales coach Vince Villanucci
