No. 7 Campo Verde at No. 2 Mesquite (Div. II):  The Week 10 battle of Gilbert’s Div. II upstarts was Mesquite’s in a 30-0 landslide. The Wildcats pounded Campo Verde’s defense with 38 runs, and threw it 27 times and amassed 420 yards of total offense. Besides it beign the first game without RB Gabe Ogbonnaya (out for the season with torn ACL), Campo coach Max Ragsdale said this week he counted 26 missed defensive assignements that night. The Coyotes’ defense is/was better than that all season, so a closer return to form is likely. Mesquite put up 42 points against Sierra Vista Buena in the first round last week, but Campo Verde's defense isn’t going to let that happen. The Wildcats are banged up (Nolan Tondreau was injured last week and was a dagger against Campo Verde in the first meeting), but Campo Verde needs a big-play threat running the ball, and hasn’t found one without Ogbonnaya. Mesquite’s defense is still too good for Campo to consistently move the ball, especially in the secondary.

Prediction:  Mesquite 24, Campo Verde 13
