With just two games remaining in the regular season we saw plenty of action last night. We also saw the playoff picture get a little bit clearer, but we still have a lot to iron out in the seasons last week. Here's what went down with the Friday Highlight Teams.
Combs went down to Tucson and came away with a 14-12 victory over Amphitheater. The win improves them to 6-3. Next week they travel to Scottsdale to take on Coronado. Combs looks to end the regular season on a high note.
Phoenix Christian Prep had another long night as it lost to Shadow Mountain 51-7. The Cougars fall to 3-6 and likely will miss the playoffs. They play at Washington next week as they try to rebound from this tough loss.
Liberty improved to 8-1 after a blowout victory over Ironwood. The Ty won 48-16 and had little trouble with the Eagles. They close the season at home against Willow Canyon next Friday as they prepare for the playoffs.
St. Mary's had another great game and came away with the victory. They beat Trevor Browne 48-10. They now face an unbeaten Sunnyslope team in a game that may decide their playoff fate. To add to the pressure the Knight's have to go into Viking Country to try and find a win. The Knight's are now 7-2.
Coronado was blown out by Florence 61-20 and is now 4-5. They finish the season next Friday against Combs at home.
In a game that would decide the section title Westview beat Millennium pretty handily 37-6. Westview is now 7-2 and travels to Maryvale to finish the regular season. They are hoping to make a long run deep into the playoffs.
Chandler was all over Basha early and often as it cruised to victory 55-10. Chandler is now 8-1 and host Highland next Friday. Chandler is a favorite to win the state title and they have certainly been playing like it.
Millennium lost to Westview 37-6 as I said earlier. The loss drops them to 4-5 and 3-1 in section play. Now it's time to forget about that game because now next weeks game is even bigger. They face Cesar Chavez, a team that has come on strong as of late. Both teams are 3-1 in the section and this game will likely decide who goes to the playoffs and who goes home to clean out their lockers. The game will be played at Millennium.
