It took a last-minute drive and double-overtime, but Coolidge moved to 4-0 on the year thanks to a 21-14 win at Sahuarita Friday night. Sahuarita (2-1) dominated the trenches for 46 minutes but couldn’t hold on despite limiting the Bears to 15 yards of total offense in the first half.

The Bears came in averaging 40 points a game but six sacks, a blocked punt and an interception had the Bears struggling to find the end zone. On the other side, the Mustangs found things just as difficult, thanks to four turnovers, including two in the first quarter….
