Tombstone won for the first time since 2019 after beating Santa Rita 42-0 Friday night on the road and the Yellow Jackets did most of their damage with senior Jaremy McCoy running for big gains on his birthday.
McCoy finished with 133 yards rushing with touchdown runs of 35, 36 and 46 yards but the table was set by 10 seconds into the game with Dometrious Fenning returning the opening kick 75 yards to give Tombstone a lead the team would never give up…..
