Kyle Johnson and Brandon Garcia each had big nights as Seton Catholic shut out visiting Chino Valley 47-0 in a Division IV, Section IV game Friday.
If Seton was expecting to knock Coolidge from the ranks of the unbeaten, it might want to forget the first 10 minutes of Friday’s Division IV matchup.

Coolidge was a big part of the offseason news when it accused Hamilton of recruiting standout running back/defensive back J.T. Gray. Gray didn’t go to Hamilton but he didn’t stay at Coolidge, either, instead moving to Mississippi. Despite the departure of their superstar, the Bears have started the season 6-0 and are the only undefeated team remaining in Division IV. However, Coolidge has yet to face a team at the caliber of defending state champion Seton. The Sentinels do not appear to be as good as a year ago — and this game should further clarify if they will be in the title hunt — but their lone loss came to a talented Snowflake team and Seton enters the contest on a three-game winning streak. The Sentinels are more balanced than in recent years and running back Antonio Campanella (80 carries, 618 yards, 7 TD) may be their most talented offensive player. This should be a telling result no matter how it ends up...
Prediction: Seton Catholic 31, Coolidge 20
-- Kyle Odegard
Given the events that occurred in the previous 23 and a half minutes, it made sense that Seton Catholic's final hope of a comeback victory was struck down by an untimely penalty – one of many in the second half that contributed to the team's 28-23 loss to Snowflake on Friday night.
In a game in which the two squads traded momentum, Chandler Seton Catholic held onto the mojo a little longer on their way to a 34-23 home win over the Maricopa Rams on Friday night.

Outlook: It’s a whole new crew at Seton Catholic.
5. Snowflake — WR/DB Rick Shumway and Alec Solomon are nearly all that remains from the 2012 semifinalists, and Snowflake should join Show Low among the most difficult schedules in Div. IV (Mingus, Estrella Foothills, Seton Catholic, Blue Ridge and Show Low). Estrella Foothills and Coolidge could also snag this spot.
4. River Valley — An 8-4 team in 2012 returns QB Derek Advocates (1,818 yards, 17 TD, 3 INT; 614 yards rushing, 8 TD), RB Brandon Long (1,296 yards, 16 TD) and more than half of its defense. The schedule isn’t overly difficult so an 8-2 or 9-1 regular season is within reach.
3. Seton Catholic — Perhaps the biggest wildcard in all our division’s rankings, the defending champions return RB Antonio Campanella, Nikko Villegas and little else among significant contributors from 2012. But the Sentinels are always good, and a silver lining could be a manageable schedule (Maricopa, Snowflake and Coolidge).

Matt Haggerty has been like a caged animal on defense recently.
Playing without a half-dozen key contributors hasn't stopped Seton Catholic. Neither has bad snaps or other teams' defenses.
