Week 4 games, Friday, Sept. 18: Prescott (2-1) at Moon Valley (0-3)7 p.m. at Moon Valley H.S. field in PhoenixPrescott returned to the win column this past Friday, Sept. 11, on Homecoming and now hits the road for three straight games. In a Division III contest tonight, the Badgers battle a Moon Valley squad that's struggled in losses to Verrado (38-21), Cactus (35-14) and Cactus Shadows (45-33). But Prescott can't afford to overlook the Rockets. Coach Cody Collett will have his troops ready. Bradshaw Mtn. (2-1) at North Canyon (0-3)7 p.m. at North Canyon H.S. in PhoenixBradshaw Mountain's two wins have come by the slimmest of margins, including a 2-point victory at Shadow Ridge in Week 2 and last Friday's wild, come-from-behind 36-35 nail-biter over Notre Dame Prep in Prescott Valley. North Canyon, meanwhile, has been blown out in three consecutive losses to open the campaign. Like Prescott, the Bears would be wise to not let up on an inferior opponent and continue to try and gain momentum as mid-season approaches. Sedona Red Rock (2-1) at Chino Valley (0-3)7 p.m. at Chino Valley H.S. stadium in Chino ValleyChino Valley will play the last of its four straight home games to start the 2015 season tonight, and it would be a shame if the Cougars couldn't pull out at least one win. The program is suffering through a 13-game losing streak dating back to last fall and hasn't won since Nov. 1, 2013. Tonight's Week 4 opponent, Sedona Red Rock, is coming off a 40-0 win at home over Valley Sanders. Chino lost 12-0 to Holbrook in Week 3. Tonight's game, on Homecoming, might be one of the best chances the Cougars have to get off the schneid. Mayer (2-1) at Joseph City (2-2)7 p.m. at Joseph City H.S. in Joseph CityDivision VI Mayer trounced Phoenix Deaf, 74-14, in Week 3 but faces a stiffer test tonight in its section opener at Joseph City. Mayer and Joe City are two evenly matched teams this fall, and this should be a decent, competitive contest. Phoenix Deaf (0-4) at Bagdad (4-0)7 p.m. at Bagdad H.S. stadium in BagdadUndefeated defending D-VI state runner-up Bagdad has been on cruise control through its first four games. And that won't change tonight when the Sultans host Phoenix Deaf. Bagdad's schedule will get tougher, with three of its last four games on the road, but the Sultans are proving that they are a force with which to be reckoned again this season.
