It was the fifth shutout this season for Salpointe Catholic, their most ever in one season.

Bijan Robinson and Mario Padilla each scored a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Lancers (10-1).

The sophomore Robinson finished with 120 yards on 10 carries while the junior Padilla had eight rushes for 84 yards.

Rodrigo Nieto threw for a 76-yard catch and run score to Andrew Jacobs.

Jacobs had a pair of touchdown receptions on the night, including one from backup quarterback Devin Green.

Pueblo (8-3) was making their second playoff appearance in the four years since UA great Brandon Sanders took over the program.

The 4th-seeded Lancers advance to play #5 Glendale Cactus next Friday night at 7 p.m. here in Tucson.
