SOUTHERN, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Two get through.
Pusch Ridge Christian and Benson scored huge wins Saturday night to advance to the semifinal round of the high school football playoffs.
The only other local team playing Saturday, Bisbee, lost big to Joy Christian. On Friday, Ironwood Ridge and Catalina Foothills saw their seasons end with crushing losses.
The Pusch Ridge Lions won 13-10, pulling off a huge upset of defending champion River Valley with some late-game heroics from Ben Walker.
Pusch Ridge was down 10-7 late in the fourth quarter. With 1:47 left, the Dust Devils missed a field goal and Pusch Ridge got another chance.
The Lions took advantage and grabbed the lead when Walker made a 30-yard touchdown catch to put Pusch Ridge ahead 13-10.
River Valley still had time left and drove all the way down to the Pusch Ridge 32-yard line.
The Dust Devils lined up for a game-tying 45-yard field goal, but Walker came up big again and blocked the kick and the Lions won.
Pusch Ridge will face No. 7 Lake Havasu in a Division IV semifinal next week. The game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Saturday at Arcadia High School in Phoenix.
It is the first semifinal berth for the Lions, who moved up from Division V.
Top-seeded Benson Bobcats (12-0) moved on with an easy 49-12 win over Miami.
The Bobcats will face No. 4 American Leadership in the semifinals next week. The game is set for 6 p.m. Saturday at Fountain Hills High School in Fountain Hills.
