    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.

PHOENIX (Tucson News Now) -

Coronado may have been just a six seed going into the Division III State Semifinals but any title won in 2015 was going thru the Dons.

The defending state champions blitzed 2nd seeded Amphi for two goals in the first 14 minutes Wednesday at Phoenix's Arcadia High School and never looked back on their way to a 5-1 win.

The Dons are in the state championship match for a fourth straight season where they will face Yuma Catholic.

Amphi, who played most of the second half of the season without a true striker on the offensive end, never really had a chance.

Coronado dominated the game from the outset. Senior captain Omar Parra opened the scoring in the 7th minute.

Seven minutes later Christian Gaxiola tallied the first of his two first half goals with a 30-yard laser over the head of Panthers goalie Pedro Estudillo.

Miguel Gonzalez added another goal in the 20th minute for the Dons as Coronado led 4-0 at the half.

Two minutes into the second half, Parra caught the Panthers defense napping as he snuck in between Estudillo and sophomore defender Esdras Fernandez for a beautiful flip goal while falling down to make it 5-0 for the Dons.

A late goal by captain Abram Flores allowed the Panthers to avoid the shutout.

Amphi reached the state semifinals last year but lost to eventual state runner up Phoenix Northwest Christian.

The loss snapped the Panthers 11-match winning streak. Amphi finishes the season at 19-6.
