They beat Round Valley 35-0 last Friday. It was 0-0 at the half. I wasn't at the game so I don't know what happened but it has been mentioned that RV lost some key players after halftime and that contributed to Morenci running away with it in the second half. I would think it was more Morenci making ajustments and are just plain better than RV.
"it has been mentioned that RV lost some key players after half"
There was no intent to put down what Morenci is doing, and I did not say that, I was just told that, and was suspect of the source and the correctness of the info, so I asked the question. No doubt, this might be the best Morenci team in a long, long time as the results certainly speak for themselves. Beating Safford, Thatcher, and RV certainly is doing all the talking needed. Thanks for the response---I look forward to talking with Coach Bell and getting his perspective on this game and what happened in the second half.
I am very impressed with Morenci this year. Having heard that nearby Clifton ended their sports programs, has Morenci gained by getting more players from Clifton? Not implying this is the reason for success, I just know that having more depth always helps.
"The reason I didn't like to throw on first and ten, was because I hated second and ten." - The Legendary Ray Smith.
From Morenci, Arizona where the copper mines glow I could see Clifton in the canyon below In Clifton lived Rosey, we danced and we dined On the money I made in the open pit mine.
I loved my sweet Rosey and she loved me too There was nothin' for Rosey that I wouldn't do Her hugs and her kisses they were something devine Gave me reason for working the open pit mine.
While I was out walkin' with my Rosey one day We passed a store window with rings on display I bought those she wanted, how they really did shine With the money I scraped from that open pit mine.
Her love would bring heartbreak that I would soon learn 'Cause she would concern me when my back was turned? Rosey would go dancin' and drink the red wine While I worked like a slave in that open pit mine.
One night I caught Rosey on her rendevous She was huggin' and kissin' with somebody new It was there that I shot 'em while their arms were entwined Then I buried her deep in that open pit mine.
I took a look at my future and what did I see There was nothin' but trouble a-waiting for me But on the sun's next rising I'll be satisfied 'Cause they'll find me there sleepin' by my sweet Rosey's side...
