OVERTIME: Mayfield has Titans back on track

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Palo Verde Titans might be wearing out their new/old coach Todd Mayfield, but their 5-1 doing it.

The Titans beat southeast side rival Santa Rita 34-20 Friday night.

Mayfield is in his first season back on the sideline for Palo Verde after four-year hiatus in which he took care of his dying father, the legendary Tucson Badgers football coach Ollie Mayfield while spending time as an assistant under Jay Campos at Sabino.

The Titans combined to win six games the past two seasons but appear to be back on their way to the 10-win campaigns that became a normality under Mayfield during his first tenure at the east side school.

One things for sure, Mayfield is not afraid to go for it on 4th down. He did early and often as the Titans built an early two touchdown lead.

Junior quarterback Daniel Hunt  found tight end Alex Yslas for a seven-yard scoring strike to give the Titans a 7-0 lead.

The touchdown was set up by a 30-yard dash up the middle by Joe Lewis.

Hunt did the running on the Titans second scoring drive, going up the middle on a 4th and 1, 38-yards to the Eagles seven-yard line. He eventually scored on a one-yard quarterback sneak.

Lewis ran for a 35-yard touchdown later in the second quarter as Palo Verde built their lead to 27-0 after three quarters. The Titans travel to Rio Rico (4-2) next Friday night.
