Freshman Christian Wilridge (Tombstone HS) was also a factor in the ground game. He rushed for 60 yards on eight carries with a 26-yard touchdown run as part of the second quarter barrage. Freshman Dominique Fenstermacher (Mountain Pointe HS) also contributed in the quarter when he scored on a 41-yard interception return. The Aztecs led 35-13 at halftime.
