The “Who’s your daddy bowl,” in the words of Dobson coach George De La Torre, but this father-son clash (Mike De La Torre is Poston Butte’s coach) goes beyond family wagerings (of which there are a couple in place for this game). Dobson is coming off a disappointing 12-0 loss to Mesa in the season-opener after unveiling its revamped football field/track, which put a pall over the evening. Can Dobson find some offense? Poston Butte (1-1) played Queen Creek to the end in a season-opening loss (20-12) and beat Gila Ridge last week. The Mustangs have relied on junior Brandon Hatfield running the ball (241 yards, 3 TD in two games) and a defense which has forced and recovered five fumbles. Zaq Smith and Chris Musselman have scored on special teams and defense, respectively. This all means neither team has been ablaze offensively, and the first one to find it probably wins. An early lead in this game could be paramount.

Prediction: Poston Butte 14, Dobson 10
