No. 9 Red Mountain at No. 8 Highland:  Whether these two teams are, in fact, appropriately places at No. 8 and No. 9, can be argued any which way. But based on the proximity to one another, this should be shaping up a true 8-vs.-9 matchup, an absolute toss-up, coin-flip of a game. Both teams have played good defense of late, especially Highland. Can Red Mountain, which found itself after a 1-4 start to the season with a young team and relentless schedule, continue to succeed with Caleb Murray-Thomas and Brennen Dobson giving different looks offensively?  Highland’s defense is stout, but the offense has shown flashes of effectiveness sprinkled in with struggles to score (including last week in a loss to Chandler). Still, that defense is strong and the Hawks are capable of putting up enough points in their methodical, grind-it-out fashion. It’s one of the more difficult games to predict this season because of the style, but somebody has to win eventually. 

Prediction:  Highland 23, Red Mountain 20
