Marques magic lifts Huskies to win

by Russ Paris
   Marques Tuiasosopo's two-yard line plunge scored the go-ahead touchdown with just 1 minute to play as the UW defeated Arizona 35-32 last Saturday.
   Tui's touchdown ended an 11 play, 67-yard drive that featured a 25-yard pass to Todd Elstrom.
   This was the second of two touchdown runs by Tuiasosopo.
   The first came on a three-yard run by Tui after his 46-yard run off the option where he cut inside and scampered downfield for his longest run of the year. He also completed 17 of 34 pass attempts for a total of 196 yards.
   "If you invented a game and became proficient at it, then introduced it to Marques, he would be beating you at it within a half hour," said Mark Leander, assistant WHS football coach about Marques at his high school football awards banquet.
