Maricopa Gridiron – AWC @ SCC Football, October 6, 2018


THE 3-2 ARIZONA WESTERN
MATADORS TRAVELED UP TO SCOTTSDALE TO TAKE ON THE
4-1 ARTICHOKES IN THIS WSFL MATCHUP! SCC WAS LOOKING TO AVENGE
LAST SEASON’S LOSS TO WESTERN. THE MATADORS DIDN’T WASTE
ANY TIME GETTING ON THE SCOREBOARD. FRESHMAN WIDE RECEIVER
TROY’VON JOHNSON, FIELDED THE OPENING KICKOFF AT THE
9-YARD LINE, SPRINTED UP THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD
UNTOUCHED FOR THE 91-YARD TOUCHDOWN! ARIZONA WESTERN LED 7-0! THE ARTICHOKES
ANSWERED QUICKLY. AFTER A BIG RETURN OF
THEIR OWN, SCC STARTED IN MATADOR TERRITORY. KARE LYLES CONNECTED WITH
DEVIN NEAL FOR THE 31-YARD TOUCHDOWN, AND THE
GAME WAS TIED AT 7! IN THE SECOND QUARTER WITH
SCOTTSDALE LEADING 10-7, ARIZONA WESTERN STARTED
TO MOVE THE BALL. BACKUP UP QUARTERBACK
JAQUEZ CARTER RUNS IT IN FROM 7 YARDS OUT GIVING
WESTERN A 14-10 LEAD! LATER IN THE QUARTER WITH
WESTERN LEADING 21-10, FRESHMAN RUNNING BACK
JADON HAYES GETS THE HANDOFF, AND BEATS SOME
SCC DEFENDERS TO THE END ZONE FOR THE SCORE! THE MATADORS LED 28-10! THE SECOND HALF STARTED
OUT WITH BOTH DEFENSES MAKING PLAYS. WITH SCOTTSDALE DRIVING,
KARE LYLES FIRES THE BALL TO THE END ZONE, BUT
IT’S PICKED OFF BY TOBIAS GILLIAM AND THE
MATADORS DENY SCC AGAIN! SCOTTSDALE’S DEFENSE
RETURNED THE FAVOR ON ARIZONA WESTERN’S
ENSUING DRIVE. WITH THE MATADORS LOOKING
TO SCORE, LOGAN BYRD GETS PICKED OFF BY FRESHMAN
DEFENSIVE BACK ADARIAN BEAMON AT THE GOAL LINE
TO STOP THE MATADOR DRIVE! ON THE VERY NEXT PLAY,
WITH THE ARTICHOKES PINNED DEEP, WESTERN BLITZES AND
SCC IS UNABLE TO GET THE BALL OUT OF THEIR END ZONE, THE
MATADORS GET THE SAFETY! WESTERN LED 30-13! SCOTTSDALE GOT A LATE
SCORE, WHEN LYLES FOUND NEAL AGAIN FOR THE
7-YARD TOUCHDOWN. BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH,
WESTERN COMES UP WITH A 37-19 VICTORY! THE MATADORS IMPROVE TO
4-2 ON THE SEASON, AND SCC DROPS TO 4-2! I’M MIKE CAROTENUTO
FOR MARICOPA GRIDIRON!
