What is the best dish at Thanksgiving?

The Homecoming football game is often planned as an easy win, a relaxed contest designed not to interfere with a school’s festivities.

Justice Keane sprints into the end zone on a two-point conversion against Kingman Academy during the Scorpions homecoming game.Somebody apparently forgot to send Kingman Academy that email.

Sedona Red Rock High School junior Max Hauserman threw a 10-yard pass — his very first of the game after coming in for injured starting quarterback Derrick Johnson — to junior Brian Nguyen, then kicked the winning extra point with just over a minute left in the game to lift the Scorpions [5-1] to a 30-29 comeback Homecoming win over the Tigers [2-4] on Friday, Oct. 4.

With less than six minutes to play in the third quarter, it appeared the game was going to be that easy after a 21-yard Hauserman field goal made the score 23-7. Sophomore Justice Keane had scored the Scorpions’ first two touchdowns off a 10-yard pass from sophomore Derrick Johnson and a 15-yard touchdown run, capped by his two-point conversion run into the end zone.

The rout appeared to be on after Johnson tore off a 90-yard touchdown run 11/2 minutes before halftime.

But by the end of the third quarter, both Johnson and Keane would limp to the sideline with injuries, not to return. Junior starting running back Andre Davis was already sidelined for the game with an injured shoulder.

And with that attrition, senior quarterback Austin Tomlinson and Kingman Academy caught fire. Senior running backs Westin McCord and Cody Tuepker ran for scores, with Tuepker kicking two extra points and McCord capping the comeback with a two-point conversion run after Tomlinson called his own number from three yards out to put Kingman Academy in the lead, 29-23.
