TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Sabino is back in the state semifinals for the first time since 2011.

The 5th seed Sabercats blew out visiting #13 Winslow 48-0 Saturday night to advance in the AIA 3A football tournament.

Sabino (11-1) will play top-seed Show Low next Saturday night at Gilbert’s Williams Field High School in a game that will start at 6:30 p.m.

Star senior and UA 2017 commit Drew Dixon threw for two touchdowns and caught two more as the Sabercats ran out to a 35-0 lead at the half.

The two he caught were from Alex Bell, who threw for 329 yards (18-of-30 passing) and three scores, including a 66-yard third quarter strike to Andrew Carlsen.

Carlsen had another stellar game with eight catches for 157 yards.

Dixon finished the night with seven catches and 138 yards.

He made the athletic play of the game in the first quarter eluding four rushers to stay alive and find Bennett Nottingham for a 34-yard touchdown giving Sabino a 14-0 lead.

Damen Gibson was the recipient of Dixon’s other touchdown throw. Luke Moran also scored a touchdown for the Sabercats. 

Taylor Killian led the Sabino rushing attack with 57 yards and a touchdown.

James Offerman had 12 tackles for the Sabercats who recorded three sacks. Dixon added an interception.
