The matchup of 4-1 records. Westwood is off to a fast start, but Spencer Stowers' team probably learned more about itself in the loss to Mesa than with the wins. Namely, its offense needs to improve against some of the better defenses. Speaking of which, Mesquite has relied on its defense (and a weird ruling which led to a re-try of a game-winning field goal against Marana Mountain View) and running game to this point, and that’ll likely continue. Can Mesquite contain Dezmond Suing, Ethan Johnson, and delay what’s been a terrific start to the season for QB Kane Tieman (10 TD, 2 INT) for Westwood? Probably just enough. The Wildcats have the size to grind games out running the ball, and the defense is disciplined enough to make Westwood drive the field...
Prediction: Mesquite 20, Westwood 13
-- Mark Heller
Outlook: Bit by bit, the climb upward is underway.
The two Mesa schools clash again. Last year's battle went in Mesa's favor, 24-7, but Mesa struggled offensively in a loss against Highland last week, and Westwood is off to a 2-0 start. The Warriors (2-0) have athletes, starting with Dezmond Suing (353 yards rushing, 5 TD) and have gotten good QB play from Kane Tieman so far. Mesa, however, will be the best defense Westwood has seen to date, and the Jackrabbits (1-1) might be limited offensively, but they can run the ball if Turretz Pietz-Noble can return from injury and last week's emergence of Javier Martinez. If it comes down to special teams and the kicking game - which it could in this toss-up of a game - advantage Mesa with Noe Pereles.
Prediction: Mesa 16, Westwood 14
