Mesquite’s been one of the biggest surprises of 2013, as a convincing win over Poston Butte on Friday night improved its record to 7-1 on the season. The Wildcats will get their toughest task since Week 2 against Williams Field in this showdown against Marcos de Niza. Salpointe, Chaparral and Centennial are the clear class of Division II, but the winner of this game can make a claim to be right behind them on the second tier. Marcos de Niza has been one of the most unpredictable teams in the state, beating Horizon and Chaparral early on while losing to Campo Verde and struggling to put away Buena and Cesar Chavez. Padres quarterback Josh Eckley will be the most dynamic player on the field, and his performance could sway the outcome.
Prediction: Marcos de Niza 31, Mesquite 28
