No. 7 Horizon at No. 6 Pinnacle

This is pretty much the determinant of the Division I, Section V winner, but for Horizon, it’s also a big boost in competition, perhaps the best since a Week 1 matchup against Marcos de Niza (Horizon beat up Desert Mountain in late September, but the Wolves were missing a half-dozen starters that night from injuries, so it’s an impressive win for sure but didn’t offer a thorough assessment of Horizon). Pinnacle’s defense will be the best Horizon has seen this year, but will that matter? The Huskies have exploded offensively all season behind Player of the Year candidates Luke Quinn and Dalton Snead. Neither side is particularly big up front (offensive or defensive lines), so that could become a factor one way or another. Pinnacle will try and run the ball with Josh Hoekstra to do its best to keep Horizon’s offense off the field, and Horizon wants to “motor” with no huddles, quick-developing plays and many of them to keep Pinnacle’s defense on the field and force the Pioneers into being “perfect” score for score. Shootout anyone?

Prediction: Horizon 41, Pinnacle 34
