There was a time when I actually watched every single play of the high school football game I covered.

It was a performance that was reminiscent of years past.
As we get deeper into fall, the evenings are getting cooler, but the action on the field is just starting to heat up. To help make sure you are good and warmed up for the game with a good meal and some libations, here are some spots nearby to check out before and/or after yet another glorious evening on the football field.
Nothing was going right for the Hamilton Huskies: They had surrendered 28 straight points to the Pinnacle Pioneers and found themselves trailing on the road for the first time with less than two minutes to play.
Red Mountain knew Friday night’s season opener against Pinnacle would be a tall order.

Perhaps this is going to outdate thyself. It’s easy to live in the past and remember the olden days.
A powerful, physical running game.

There are as many schools of thought on the whole advantage-disadvantage debate in "rematch" games as there are rematch games this week in the state tournament quarterfinals.
These matchups are inevitable. Whether sooner or later, a second helping is almost always required for a football team to play on.
Wakeup calls come in all shapes and sizes this time of year. For No.6-seeded Pinnacle, it came in the form of a 12-second deficit.
Friday night’s showdown between Horizon and Pinnacle lived up to the shootout it was billed to be. But, surprisingly, it was the Huskies’ high-octane offense that couldn't keep pace.
We all know about the Chaparral-Desert Mountain and Chaparral-Saguaro rivalry matchups in Scottsdale, but another has wedged itself into the mix, at least for this year (and hopefully beyond).

Homecoming night wasn’t touted Pinnacle junior quarterback Brian Lewerke’s highlight-reel game.
Pinnacle rolled to an easy victory over Mountain Ridge on Friday night and moves up to No. 6 in the rankings. Quarterback Brian Lewerke had 304 passing yards and four touchdowns. Next week's game against Horizon will be interesting for both sides. Pinnacle's defense gave up 35 to Basha and will get another tough test against the explosive Huskies. Pinnacle's offense can score, too, so the matchup should be entertaining.
No. 6 Pinnacle at No. 3 Hamilton: This is shaping up to be this week’s honest-to-goodness toss up. Of course, that was Red Mountain vs. Highland in the first round and it turned out to be anything but a pick ‘em. Still, there’s no doubt Pinnacle can play with the Huskies, they did so in early September (and it can be argued Pinnacle should have won at Hamilton on Sept. 12). Hamilton believes it’s recent return to health and growth on offense is tangible. Pinnacle believes QB Brian Lewerke is playing significantly better than he was two months ago (Huskies coach Steve Belles raved about him back then and again this week). If Hamilton can control the ball and clock with its running game - and score touchdowns - the Huskies can keep Pinnacle’s offense off the field, which is the best bet because Cules Rose and Daniel Galindo (pictured) are big-play threats at WR as the Pioneers can score quickly. The Pioneers are capable of negating Hamilton’s offense. Expect a few tweaks, but no massive transformations from the first time around. In other words, expect something similar to the first game’s drama.
Prediction: Hamilton 24, Pinnacle 21
The Huskies dropped their second game of the year on Friday night to No. 6 Pinnacle. Horizon's offense showed it can put up points against a quality opponent, but the defense couldn't stop Pioneers standout Brian Lewerke. Despite the loss, the game was close throughout and Horizon remains at No. 7.
