Sahuarita over Sunnyside; Sam Wright scores 4 goals

Sam Wright gets ready to score. (Andy Morales/AllSportsTucson)


Sahuarita sophomore Sam Wright scored four goals to help lead the Mustangs past Sunnyside 8-0 Monday evening at home. Ranked No. 13 entering the match, Sahuarita is now 7-1 on the year while outscoring opponents 48-2 along the way. The one loss was at No. 6 Walden Grove (6-1) on Feb. 5.

That victory gave Walden Grove the 4A Gila title and the automatic playoff berth that goes with it but the Red Wolves are most certainly in the playoffs regardless as are the Mustangs with one match left on their schedule. No. 11 Sahuaro visits Sahuarita Tuesday night in an important match for both programs as far as playoff seeding goes. The new rankings will be released Tuesday at noon (or 10 am through the azpreps365 app) so both squads should have a better idea of they stand…
