Westwood at Mesa

The two Mesa schools clash again. Last year's battle went in Mesa's favor, 24-7, but Mesa struggled offensively in a loss against Highland last week, and Westwood is off to a 2-0 start. The Warriors (2-0) have athletes, starting with Dezmond Suing (353 yards rushing, 5 TD) and have gotten good QB play from Kane Tieman so far. Mesa, however, will be the best defense Westwood has seen to date, and the Jackrabbits (1-1) might be limited offensively, but they can run the ball if Turretz Pietz-Noble can return from injury and last week's emergence of Javier Martinez. If it comes down to special teams and the kicking game - which it could in this toss-up of a game - advantage Mesa with Noe Pereles.

Prediction:  Mesa 16, Westwood 14
