A year ago, Mesquite’s football team had turned in their uniforms and was about to go through the process of finding a new coach.
No. 4 Desert Ridge vs. No. 1 Mountain Pointe (at McClintock H.S.): The easy pick is Mountain Pointe. After all, the Pride have been in a league of their from day 1 when they beat Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) on Gorman’s home field in late August. Nobody has stopped the Pride since, a rare combination of offensive balance, a defense, clearly defined leaders, excellent coaching, and something of a chip on their shoulder after losing handily in last year’s state championship game. Desert Ridge possess much the same, yet because of a little-used passing game and wonderment about the competition it’s faced to date, question marks still linger. The Jaguars are going to use Player of the Year candidate Taren Morrison and run right at the Pride, testing Mountain Pointe’s willingness to be physical and disciplined on every snap the entire game. Miss one, and Morrison is gone; the big plays are how Desert Ridge has broken the big-school, single-season rushing record. The difference here being Mountain Pointe’s defense is about as good as Desert Ridge has seen this year, and the Pride’s balance on offense tips the scales ever so slightly. As with all games, coaching at this level is pretty much a wash because how good they are with game plans and adjustments. If rain is a factor, Desert Ridge might gain an advantage on a slow, wet field. If not, it’s hard to go against the grain, even if it’ll be a tremendous game.
Prediction: Mountain Pointe 24, Desert Ridge 21

No. 3 Hamilton vs. No. 2 Chandler (at Highland H.S.): This could be every bit as scintillating as Mountain Pointe-Desert Ridge, a combination of Div. I semifinal games which have the makings of being the best we’ve seen in years. The monkey off Chandler’s back is palpable after beating Hamilton earlier in the regular season, and the Wolves have been as unstoppable as Mountain Pointe and Desert Ridge the past six weeks (basically since the Wolves were hammered by Mountain Pointe early in the season). Hamilton, however, is healthy, and the defense and running game the Huskies use to keep the ball away from the opposition was back in form against Pinnacle in last week’s quarterfinals win. Chandler’s defense has held its own better than any Wolves’ version in recent years, but a potentially soggy or sloppy field might favor the Huskies if rain comes into play. There are plenty of reasons why Chandler should and deserves to win this game, but there are plenty of reasons why it’s difficult to see Hamilton losing twice to the same team in the same season. Whichever teams blinks first (ie. turnovers) will fall, and Hamilton’s defense is going to come out firing.
Prediction: Hamilton 24, Chandler 22
