Mingus Union football narrowed the gap in the second Grand Canyon Media Poll.

The Marauders remained second in the poll but saw their deficit behind Bradshaw Mountain shrink from four points to one. However, Mingus Union received six first place votes compared to the Bears’ five.

Both teams opened the season with wins. BM defeated Goodyear Estrella Foothills 20-13.

Lead by senior running back Alex Nelson’s 326 yards on 27 carries, the Marauders beat San Tan Valley Combs 53-14 to snap MUHS’s seven game losing streak to non Grand Canyon Region opponents.
