TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Badgers offense didn't bother to stop at the station just because the defending Division II State Champions showed up Friday night by Gridley Stadium.

Sophomore Bryce Coleman broke open a tight game with a 60-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter and 8th ranked Tucson High Magnet School recorded their first ever win over #9 Ironwood Ridge convincingly, 51-30.

After the defenses dominated early, the Badgers (6-1) open the touchdown parade with an impressive drive that resulted in a one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Donovan Moore.

Coleman scored twice but he also lost two fumbles, one of which the Nighthawks (5-2) recovered for a touchdown.

Ironwood Ridge running back Jake Vartanian did all he could to keep The Ridge close. He scored twice on runs of 47 and 81 yards.

Elijah Anderson added a 98-yard kickoff return touchdown for the Badgers.

Tucson High faces (0-7) Rincon next Friday night before they finish the season against playoff contenders Mountain View and Salpointe Catholic.
