TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Division II Section I is now one big mess.

Salpointe Catholic ran right through the Tucson Badgers defense on their way to a 38-24 win on Homecoming night at Doherty Stadium.

Dominic Salaz scored on a pair of runs (55 and 17 yards) right up the middle. Oscar Quiroz added a 33-yard touchdown run up the gut as the Lancers (6-3, 3-1) held on to their hopes of a section title.

Salpointe Catholic has won three straight since their section-opening loss to Sunnyside.

The Lancers only road to a section title would be a Week 10 win over Cienega and a Sunnyside loss to Tucson.

The Blue Devils (6-3, 3-1) fell to Sahuaro Friday night 17-14, but can still win the section with a victory over the Badgers (6-3, 2-2) in the final week of the regular season.

Sunnyside is the only team that controls their own destiny.

Despite a second straight loss by the Badgers, THMS can still win the section next Friday night. Tucson must beat Sunnyside and hope that Salpointe Catholic loses to Cienega.

The tie-breaker is winning percentage inside Division II and after nine weeks, Tucson and Sunnyside at 5-3 are the only teams above .500 against division competition.

A Tucson win over Sunnyside and Lancers loss would clinch the Section championship for the Badgers based on their 6-3 record within Division II.

DeAndre Williams had a pair of touchdowns for the Badgers in a losing cause, one coming on a 23-yard swing pass from Jorge Flores Junior who threw another touchdown pass to Malik Patterson.

Jacob Ksiasek also ran for a touchdown for Salpointe Catholic.
