Desert Vista faced that task Friday against Division II power Centennial and came up short, losing 56-14 at Thunder Stadium.
This was a game the Coyotes (5-2) dominated throughout. After the first half they amassed 311 yards of offense and a 35-7 lead. By game’s end, they were over 500.
“We played well but we had two turnovers and dumb penalties. In order for us to be successful in the playoffs we can’t do that,” said Richard Taylor, Centennial’s head coach.
Taylor said he was most impressed by the team’s performance overall, even though individuals had stellar showings. Starting quarterback Isaac Steele threw five touchdowns and took one in himself on the ground.
“We beat two undefeated teams in the last two weeks, and for us to come play a Division I team and dominate really cemented that,” Taylor said.
On the other sideline, the Thunder (1-6) was plagued by its inability to convert on third down. The bright sport for the team was a 63-yard scoring drive, capped off with a T.J. Roberts run.
“Roberts is a guy that doesn’t care if we’re down by 49 or up by 49,” Thunder coach Dan Hinds said. “He goes as hard as he can every night and tonight was no different.”
He said he wasn’t disappointed in any of his players, that, for the most part they played a solid football game.
“Statistically it wasn’t a good game, but we made good plays. Alex (Farina) made throws that were key for us tonight.”
A 21-yard pass from Farina to Roberts set up the Thunder’s second touchdown. Roberts eventually scored on fourth down from the 1-yard line.
With just three games left on their schedule, there will be no postseason for Desert Vista. For Centennial, however, playoff hopes are still very much alive. Three games stand between them and another quest for the Division II title.
Centennial will take on Ironwood at home. For the Thunder, they’re in for another tough battle when Dobson comes in next week. Mountain Pointe will be at Corona del Sol next week. The Pride fell to Brophy 31-28, suffering just their second loss all year.

Producing over 500 yards of offense on most Friday nights usually gets the job done for Desert Ridge. Not on this night, however, and not against a Brophy team hungry for a little payback after a bitter state playoff defeat last year at the hands of the Jaguars.
Paul Lucas has always been told it looks effortless when he runs.
Mesa senior halfback Turrell Pietz-Noble ran all over the field against Valley Vista, but it wasn’t enough for the Jackrabbits to avoid a 35-19 home loss on Friday night.
most surprising of reasons — it was understandable if the Gilbert Tigers didn't know which way to look.
With only three returning starters and no week zero opponent to test their metal against, Highland coach Pete Wahlheim wasn’t sure what to expect out of his Hawks when they took the field for the first time Friday night against defending Div. III state runner-up Queen Creek.
Usually when the reins of a team’s offense are handed over to a sophomore, it’s cause to make a coach nervous.
Good evening, graduates, faculty, and family. It’s an honor to be standing on this stage tonight, with the opportunity to speak to you all, but at the same time it’s very surreal. Everyone tells me that it won’t sink in that we’ve graduated for a few weeks, when we wake up and realize that we’re never coming back here. Say what you will about your high school experience — it’s different for everybody — but it is, undoubtedly, a one-of-a-kind experience that we will never get back.
