TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The big game certainly was missing a lot of star power.

Salpointe Catholic easily dispatched of defending Division II State Champion Ironwood Ridge Friday night 48-9 despite being without quarterback Andrew Cota and wide receiver Kaelin Deboskie.

Salpointe Catholic head coach Dennis Bene told Tucson News Now after the game that the absence of Cota and Deboskie was a "coach's decision".

Cam Denson started at quarterback for the Lancers (9-0) as he has in the past when Cota was injured. The senior and UA commit threw for a seven-yard touchdown pass to Robert Wilson as well as ran for a two-yard score to get Salpointe going early.

His most electrifying play though came on a 75-yard punt return that put the Lancers up 20-3.

The Nighthawks (5-4), who albeit saw their chance playoff chances die with their third straight loss, were without their top two runners in senior Jake Vartanian and sophomore Cole McLafferty.

McLafferty hasn't played since he took a hard hit two weeks ago in the Nighthawks loss to Tucson.

Vartanian left last week's loss to Mountain View with an injury after just nine carries.

The Lancers can guarantee their playoff spot in Division II with a win next Friday over the Badgers.
