SPRING VALLEY — Playing host to the 2017 state runner-up for 1A in its 2018 season opener, Mayer’s football team simply couldn’t match Superior in a 50-0 setback Friday night at Mathern Field.
“We are trying to find our way with a bunch of new players,” said Mayer coach Mike Gutierrez, whose 2017 squad qualified for the state tournament. “Four two-way starters decided not to play this year, so we are rebuilding.
“Superior is a strong, athletic, great team.”
Mayer (0-1 overall record) hopes to bounce back when it plays host to St. David at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24.
Superior (1-0) visits Valley Union (0-1) at 7 p.m. Aug. 24.
