This weeks games were played primarily on Thursday due to religious reasons. We had a lot of great football this week and even a few surprises on the scoreboard.
The Combs Coyotes beat the Cortez Colts 59-10. The Coyotes started early and didn't look back on their way to a 5-1 record. They host Florence next week as they look for another victory.
Phoenix Christian Prep didn't have it as easily. In a huge surprise they were blown out by the Rockets of Moon Valley 49-18. The loss drops the Cougars to 3-3m but most importantly 1-2 in league play. They really need a victory next Friday when they host the unbeaten Alhambra Lions. Alhambra is 6-0 but their opponents are a combined 5-32. So let me go on record now as calling upset! Phoenix Christian will knock Alhambra from it's unbeaten mark on Friday.
Raymond S. Kellis was no match for the Liberty Lions. Liberty dominated the entire game and won 75-6. They host Deer Valley next week in a game that promises to be entertaining. Deer Valley is 5-1 and suffered their first lost to Centennial 35-7 on Thursday.
In another Surprise St. Mary's improved to 4-2 with a 38-26 victory of La Joya High School. The win also puts the Knights at 4-0 in league play. They play at Camelback on Friday, a game they should win. In fact the rest of the season are all winnable games for the Knights. The last game of the regular season is against Sunnyslope that should be their only struggle.
Our newest team to join The Friday Night Highlight club didn't fare so well against the Coolidge Bears. They lost 55-24. They look to get back in to the win column when they host win less Chino Valley on Friday.
