Foothill ruined the bracket of anyone who had gone ahead and written in the teams from the Sunrise Southeast division with a big upset to finish off the regular season Thursday night.
The Falcons stunned Green Valley, previously undefeated in league play, 58-48 with an onslaught of offense.
“Our goal was always to be peaking at the end of the year,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “We’ve gotten better every week, and this was just a week where we got much better.”
Foothill only briefly trailed Green Valley all night, and never fell behind in the second half. The Falcons scored on their third play from scrimmage when Devon Mueller threw a long touchdown pass to Corey Fisher.
Mueller went on to throw two more touchdown passes as well as run for a pair. Foothill was efficient both on the ground and through the air.
Justice Jackson ran for over 100 yards and two touchdowns, while James Hagen and Nick Gardner caught passes for scores. Bobby Merritt also had a touchdown.
Fisher kicked a field goal in the final seconds of the game to ensure Foothill the No. 2 seed, and drop Green Valley all the way No. 3. Coronado takes the Southeast’s top seed in the playoffs.
