No one can accuse Mountain Pointe of not putting a little drama into their games.
With the playoffs inching near, coach Dan Hinds and the Desert Vista Thunder had one thing in mind when they faced Corona del Sol on the road and that was to “stay in the process,” as Hinds says.
Midway through its quest for a third consecutive big-school state title, just what Chandler High’s loaded football team didn’t seem to need was another weapon. A big weapon.
With its season hanging in the balance, Mountain Pointe turned to its running game and its defense to rally from a 10-0 deficit and wallop Chaparral, 42-24, in high school football Friday night in Scottsdale.
After every one of his touchdown runs in Desert Vista’s 66-23 blowout win over Boulder Creek on Friday, and there were five of them, Thunder freshman running back Devon Grubbs was met with an embrace from his older brother, Tyson.
Desert Vista coach Dan Hinds was concerned that his team might hit a lull after a big victory over rival Mountain Pointe in the Ahwatukee Bowl last week.
