No. 3 Chaparral vs. No. 2 Mesquite (at Gilbert H.S.): The storybook season for Mesquite continues, thanks to a wild gut-check victory last week against a Campo Verde team which deserves plenty of credit for coming back and forcing overtime after a terrible first half. Still, Mesquite made a couple plays and found a way to win, the kind of toughness and resiliency which has defined the Wildcats this season under coach Jim Jones. Chaparral, however, is a different animal. The Firebirds’ skill position players could be the best Mesquite’s stingy defense has seen this season, and the Chaparral defense – in particular the front seven – are fast, physical and playing as well as they have all season (as Marcos de Niza can attest to). Once again, a potentially wet, sloppy field plays into Mesquite’s hands, but outside that, it’s going to be tough sledding for Mesquite’s offense to consistently move the ball on Chaparral (even though the offensive line is a Mesquite strength). The Wildcats want to plod and slow this game down to a crawl as much as possible, there’s no chance they win a shootout. Chaparral, however, is the most capable team Mesquite has played, of not allowing that to happen.
Prediction: Chaparral 24, Mesquite 17
