Short-handed Mt. View drubs Marana

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

So just how good will Mountain View Football be when they're fully loaded?

The Lions (1-0) missing four key players buried rival Marana (0-1) 53-2 to retain the prized trophy The Boot for at least a sixth straight season.

Junior quarterback Justice Summerset completed 12-of-21 passes for 296 yards and four touchdowns in his first start. He also ran for two scores.

The Lions opted to sit out Tucson High transfers Bryce Coleman, Demetrious Flannigan-Fowles and DeShawn Flannigan as the AIA continues to look into the circumstances of why the players choose to leave the Badgers program for The View.

Head coach Bam McRae declined comment after the game about what's next for the trio.

Tucson News Now has learned the AIA is expected to convene a special session to discuss the matter next week which is ahead of the governing body's next schedule meeting on September 9th.

Senior safety Sam Ross also did not play for Mountain View.

It didn't really matter as the Lions had too much talent for the kids from across the mountain.

Summerset gave Mountain View a 7-0 lead when he found Jeff Cotton on a 34-yard scoring strike in the first quarter. He added two more first half touchdowns on a 14-yard run and a touchdown pass to Stan Berryhill.

The Lions defense dominated the interior thanks to the fabulous play of senior defensive linemen Tyler Herring and junior Jake Darrow.

Cotton and Johnny Bruss scored second half defensive touchdowns. Enrique Sparkman and Josh Marlowe also scored for Mountain View.

The Lions hit the road next week to take on Cienega while Marana is also away for a second straight road game. The Tigers visit Rincon-University High School.
