Gameday Glance: Moon Valley at Prescott – Week 3

Who: Moon Valley Rockets at Prescott Badgers

When: Friday, Sept. 6, 7 p.m.

Where: Ken Lindley Field, Prescott

Courier Coverage: Follow sports writer Brian M. Bergner Jr. on Twitter at @TheEditorDesk for updates on Friday night’s game.

Coaches: Prescott – Cody Collett (34-19, 6th season); Moon Valley – Seth Millican (11-21, 4th season)

Records: Prescott (0-2, 0-0 Grand Canyon); Moon Valley (0-1, 0-0 Skyline)

Last Week: Prescott – The Badgers are off to a concerning 0-2 start, which is the worst start to a season they’ve had since 2010. With the lead during a slow-paced affair in last week’s game against Canyon Del Oro, the Badgers went completely cold in the second half, allowing the Dorados to come back and win the game 23-13; Moon Valley – The Rockets are coming off a 50-0 loss at the hands of 4A West Valley powerhouse Desert Edge, who also defeated Prescott 34-24 in Week 1.

Last Meeting: Prescott 43, Moon Valley 0 (Aug. 31, 2018, in Phoenix)

The Setting: If all goes according to plan, this will be Prescott’s last home game at Ken Lindley Field before returning to the newly renovated Bill Shepard Field at the high school. The Badgers want to get at least one win at the historic downtown venue and absolutely do not want to start the season 0-3. Moon Valley is looking to bounce back from last week’s embarrassing blowout.

Players to Watch: Prescott – Sr. QB/FS Dellinger Boyd, Sr. RB Sylas Espitia; Sr. WR/DB Jacob Police; Sr. TE/DE Aaron Greene; Sr. LB/RB Sam Giordan; Sr. DT/ Nathan Goligoski; Moon Valley – Sr. QB Michael Vazquez, Jr. RB Jayden Rodgers, Jr. RB/OLB Isaiah Robles

Weather: 81 degrees at kickoff, partly cloudy, 32% humidity, 8 mph W, 6:51 p.m. sunset.
