Combs suffered its second loss of the season at the hands of Florence High School 28-10. They are now 5-2 and face Seton Catholic next Friday. This should be a good game as both teams look forward to making the playoffs.

Liberty may have been one of the surprises of the night. In a game that was supposed to be very competitive they made it look easy. They scored early on Deer Valley and never looked back. The final score was Liberty 30, Deer Valley 7. Liberty now travels to Ironwood to face the Eagles next Friday.
St. Mary's shutout Camelback 35-0 and improves to 5-2. More importantly they improve to 5-0 in section play and are another week closer to breaking out the gold pants.

Westview continued it's dominance in a 41-33 victory over Valley Vista.They are now 5-2 and face the lowly North Mustangs on Friday. North is 1-6 and their only victory came against Maryvale a week ago.
I normally don't cover games without a player from The Friday Highlight but I couldn't pass this one up. Higley defeated Apache Junction 95-75. Yes you read it write. I double and triple checked. The score really was 95-75. Apparently the two teams decided not play any defense. Both teams combined for 1929 yards of total offense. They also set the record for most points scored by two teams in one game. They scored 170 points. From a coaching standpoint I'd be mad win or lose. I mean how do you score 75 points in football and lose? From a fans standpoint I love it. I bet it was an exciting game to watch. Ans for a high school kid it was probably the most fun those players ever had.
