TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It’s called The View but maybe it should be renamed Pick City.

Mountain View intercepted a pair of third quarter Alex Peters passes sparking the Division II Mountain Lions (2-0) to a dramatic 40-37 win Friday night over Division I Horizon (0-2) in Tucson.

In a game that pitted two UA Football alums, as head coaches, in the Huskies Kris Heavner ('07) and the Mountain Lions Clarence “Bam” McRae ('04), it was McRae’s Lions who came up with the big plays in the end.

Trailing 22-14, Gbara Mene-Bie* intercepted a pass in the end zone on a drive that appeared to be a game cementer for the Huskies.

After the Mountain Lions punted the ball away, Stan Berryhill Junior stepped in front of a Peters pass to give the ball right back to Mountain View.

Justice Summerset quickly capitalized, hitting Isaiah Lovett on a 62-yard touchdown strike to cut the Huskies lead to 22-20.

Bryce Coleman then scored on an eight-yard touchdown run after Horizon fumbled inside their red zone. The Mountain Lions grabbed the lead back at 28-22.

The game would see-saw after that. Horizon took a 37-34 lead with four minutes to go on a six-yard run by Dylan Lizarraga.

But the Mountain Lions responded immediately. Summerset found Lovett again for an 80-yard touchdown that proved to be the game-winner.

Summerset finished with three touchdown passes and a touchdown run. Coleman ran for a pair of scores. DeShaun Flannigan-Fowles added a 44-yard touchdown reception from Summerset.

The Mountain Lions take on Sunnyside in Week Three.
