Canutillo’s homecoming party was ruined by Horizon last night as the Scorpions tore the Eagles apart 32-13.  Horizon came out strong scoring on 3 of their first 4 possessions, taking the early 21-0 lead.

The Scorpions were sharp offensively all night long, constantly burning the Canutillo secondary for numerous long completions and touchdowns as well.  Horizon wide receiver Hilario Soto had a spectacular game, catching 6 balls for 136 yards, including a  72 yard touchdown reception.  He also made a field goal and scored on a 2 point conversion for the Scorpions.  Horizon also utilized wide receivers Carlos Espino and Adomaitis Valenzuela, who caught at least one pass for 38 yards or more.

Horizon quarterback Jesus Flores played a flawless game, completing 18 of 25 passes for 332 yards and 2 touchdown passes.  The Scorpions used 2 quarterbacks throughout the evening, Joseph Fresquez also had a solid performance scoring 2 rushing touchdowns for Horizon.

The turning point in the game came in the 3rd quarter, Canutillo was down 24-13, they came out strong to start the 2nd half, driving down the field, only to miss a 47 yard field goal attempt.  Then, Canutillo running back Joseph Arteaga fumbled the ball at the Horizon 40, after a remarkable 39 yard run.  Canutillo was able to stop Horizon and force them to punt, but Arteaga fumbled the punt at the Eagles’ 40.

Horizon took full advantage of the Canutillo mistakes and never looked back as they pulled away for the easy victory.  For the Scorpions, it was a great win, especially after losing to Del Valle 16-14 last week.  They did not want to start 0-2 in District 2-4A play.  The win certainly kept Horizon’s District 2-4A title hopes alive as well.

As for Canutillo, the loss drops them to 1-2, they are at Parkland next week, a must win game for them.  It is imperative that they work on improving their secondary, and scoring more points will also be a necessity if the Eagles want to be successful in district 2-4A play.
