Poston Butte at No. 7 Marcos de Niza...

It was only two weeks ago that the Padres were ranked No. 2 in Division II and preparing for a showdown against No. 1 Tucson Salpointe. Now the team has lost two straight and there are serious questions about its ability to contend. Quarterback Josh Eckley missed last week’s loss to Campo Verde with a bothersome ankle injury, and he may be the most impactful player in the East Valley. He is expected to play in this contest against Poston Butte, which should give the Padres the edge. Poston Butte has one of the better running backs in the East Valley in Brandon Hatfield and should put up some points against Marcos de Niza’s maligned defense, but it may be hard to keep up with Eckley and the Padres’ offense...

Prediction: Marcos de Niza 31, Poston Butte 20
