Last Meeting: Bradshaw Mountain 28, Coconino 14 (Sept. 21, 2018 in Flagstaff)
The Setting: The Bears have done well to remain over .500 halfway into the season and would relish a big win over a seemingly strong team like Coconino. We say “seemingly” because while Coconino is 4-0 on the season, their opponents (Thunderbird, Carl Hayden, Cortez, Mingus) are a combined 0-18. This will very likely be the Panthers’ first test of the season.
