Quarterback Nick Wallerstedt found the end zone three times through the air and once on the ground. JaKim McKinney and Gary Bragg each ran for two touchdowns. Kenny Churchwell and Delano Salgado manned the secondary with ease.
For the first time since 2014, both Desert Vista and Mountain Pointe high schools are coming off losses in the same week after the Pride was stunned by Desert Ridge and the Thunder fell in double overtime to Highland.
It was an emotional night for the Highland Hawks as they honored late alum Marquis Cooper. With Cooper’s family in attendance, Highland spent halftime reflecting on Cooper’s life and career, with special guests including Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and Highland graduate Ryan Fitzpatrick.
When it came down to it, Desert Vista and Mountain Pointe high schools’ varsity football teams didn’t put together their best performances, but both escaped with late victories Friday.
