  The San Manuel football team turned the tables a bit following a pair of lopsided losses to open the season by defeating visiting Tombstone last Friday, 26 – 15, for its first win of the year.

  Senior quarterback Caleb Quintero threw for three touchdowns and rushed for another in the win. Seniors Benny Laguna and Jose Moreno along with sophomore Noah Huerta were on the receiving end of Quintero’s scoring passes.

  Up next:  At Willcox on Friday, Sept. 20.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
