I was in Tolleson last night to kick off the 2015 High School Football season. The Wolverines were playing host to the Poston Butte Broncos. The game ended up being a great one with Tolleson coming from behind to get the victory 34-28.
Tolleson got the ball first and marched down the field to take an early 7-0 lead. Then Poston Butte began to take control scoring 3 times to take a 20-7 lead into the locker room.
One minute into the third quarter Poston Butte scored again. They added the two-point conversion to take a commanding 28-7 lead. The game felt like it was going to be a blowout. Then Tolleson turned on the switch.
They scored and scored again chipping away at the lead. Then midway through the fourth quarter they tied the score at 28. After a fumble recovery they scored the go ahead score with 1:47 to play. Poston Butte had one final chance to get the victory but another fumble would end all hopes of a comeback.
Next Friday Poston Butte goes home to battle Desert Mountain, another team that suffered a heartbreaking loss last night. Tolleson, now 1-0 plays host to Notre Dame Prep when they take the field next week.
