Football: Sabino moves to 1-0; Week 2 scores and a look ahead to Week 3

Sabino head coach Ryan McBrayer (Andy Morales/AllSportsTucson.com)

Sabino beat Casa Grande 14-7 Friday night in a defensive battle that saw both teams struggle in the red zone. The win by the Sabercats avenged a 21-6 loss to the Cougars from last year and the loss puts Casa Grande in a difficult situation.

The Sabercats started out 0-2 last year, but eight straight wins led to a No. 6 ranking heading into the 3A playoffs, and the team was able to rally for a semifinal finish. The Cougars, on the other hand, started the season out 5-1 but the 4A Kino Region is one of the most difficult ones in the state and losses to Salpointe, Catalina Foothills, Sahuaro and Canyon del Oro dropped the Cougars to 5-5 and out of the playoff hunt. Simply, Casa Grande needs wins to offset region play…..
