This is very unique. It’s pretty awkward. It’s a little embarrassing, to be honest.
It appeared recent history would repeat itself when Mesquite ran off to a 17-0 lead against Campo Verde after the end of the first 24 minutes in the quarterfinal matchup of Friday night. Unfortunately for Mesquite, Campo Verde didn’t stay down this time, and came close to pulling off the comeback and the upset before ultimately ceding to the home team, 26-20.

Campo Verde won six matches four years ago in its first season as a varsity program. Tuesday night, the Coyotes played for the Division II girls volleyball state championship.
These matchups are inevitable. Whether sooner or later, a second helping is almost always required for a football team to play on.
Survive and advance is a popular mantra adopted this time of year — and for good reason.
No. 7 Campo Verde survived a scare from No. 10 Tucson Sahuaro in the first round of the Division II playoffs on Friday night, a 34-21 Coyotes' victory in a game much closer than the final score might indicate.
Top-seed Campo Verde beat No. 8 Glendale Deer Valley 21-25, 25-9, 25-17, 25-16 in the quarterfinals of the Division II girls volleyball state tournament on Thursday night.

Basha won game three of its Division I first-round playoff game at Peoria Centennial on a controversial call Tuesday. In doing so, the Bears may have lost the war.
With football taking such a predominant portion of the stage, it’s worth noting the girls volleyball state tournament got underway on Tuesday night — not to mention cross country and swimming/diving state championships are coming up this weekend — and just because there’s been an unfortunate lack of ink, doesn’t mean the tournaments are going to lack talent, excitement or drama.
Well, that was interesting.
No. 7 Campo Verde at No. 2 Mesquite (Div. II): The Week 10 battle of Gilbert’s Div. II upstarts was Mesquite’s in a 30-0 landslide. The Wildcats pounded Campo Verde’s defense with 38 runs, and threw it 27 times and amassed 420 yards of total offense. Besides it beign the first game without RB Gabe Ogbonnaya (out for the season with torn ACL), Campo coach Max Ragsdale said this week he counted 26 missed defensive assignements that night. The Coyotes’ defense is/was better than that all season, so a closer return to form is likely. Mesquite put up 42 points against Sierra Vista Buena in the first round last week, but Campo Verde's defense isn’t going to let that happen. The Wildcats are banged up (Nolan Tondreau was injured last week and was a dagger against Campo Verde in the first meeting), but Campo Verde needs a big-play threat running the ball, and hasn’t found one without Ogbonnaya. Mesquite’s defense is still too good for Campo to consistently move the ball, especially in the secondary.
Prediction: Mesquite 24, Campo Verde 13
10. Sahuaro 8-2...
9. Mountain View (Marana) 7-3...
8. Sunnyslope 10-0...
7. Marcos de Niza 6-4...
6. Campo Verde 8-2...
Campo Verde’s 30-0 loss to Mesquite sends the Coyotes down from No. 4 to No. 6 (it was a tossup whether to drop the Coyotes to No. 6 or No. 7). It might have been further but Marcos stays at No. 7 after the Padres lost a shootout with Div. III-powerhouse Saguaro on Thursday night, and the Padres could have moved down a spot or two, but we’d still take Marcos to beat Phoenix Sunnsylope if the schools played each other (Sunnyslope moved up a spot due to others’ losses despite only beating St. Mary’s 27-24 on Friday night). Tucson Sahuaro lost and fell to No. 10 after allowing 22 fourth-quarter points to Vail Cienega.
Football changed a few years back to an offensive-centric, air-it-out game. But many coaches this time of year still subscribe to the old adage that defense wins championships.
Elijah Throckmorton had three touchdowns, including an 85-yard kickoff return in the third quarter to lift Combs to a 38-27 win versus visiting Coronado.
