FRIDAY FOOTBALL FEVER: Salpointe Catholic emerges from quarantine victorious

TUCSON (KVOA) - Three weeks after opening with a victory over Casa Grande, Salpointe Catholic returned to the win column Friday night with a 37-6 triumph over Buena at Doherty Stadium. 

HIGHLIGHTS: Salpointe Catholic 37, Buena 6

The Lancers (2-0) took advantage of three first half turnovers by the Colts to build a 14-0 lead at the break. 

One of those turnovers was a 56-yard interception return for a touchdown by senior Julian Robles. Salpointe Catholic finished the night with six takeaways, all on interceptions by Robles, Jaxson Greene, Anthony Martinez, Jason Newton, Dylan Dreis and Mason Sanchez.

The loss was the first for the Colts (2-1), who arrived in Tucson averaging 40-points per game.

Salpointe Catholic was playing its first game since being sent into a two-week COVID-19 quarantine. 

The contest was played without the schools' cheerleading squad as they remain in quarantine after multiple members of the squad tested positive for the Coronavirus. 

The Lancers currently have a bye in Week 5. No word yet on if there is an opportunity available for them to fill that date. 

Buena visits Casa Grande next Friday night.
