TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Salpointe Catholic quarterback Andy Cota took the first play from scrimmage and raced 64 yards on the Sabino defense.

It was a harbinger of things to come for the Sabercats as they couldn't stop what looks to be the most dynamic offensive attack in Southern Arizona.

The Lancers rolled to a 49-7 win in their home opener. Their second 40-plus point win of the season.

Jay Williams opened the scoring with a three-yard touchdown run.

On Salpointe's 2nd possession Cota found his new favorite target Kaelin Deboskie for a 36 yard score..

The Sabercats through the benefit of penalties were able to move the ball deep into Lancers territory on their second possession. But on a 4th and 12 play, Sabino quarterback Carlos Martinez's pass was intercepted by Cam Denson who returned it 74 yards for a touchdown.

Cota scored on an 18-yard run with three minutes to play in the first quarter and the rout was on.

The victory sets up an interesting road test next Friday night in Southern California against Encino Crespi. The Celts beat Woodland Hills Taft 67-0.
