No. 8 Canyon del Oro at No. 1 Williams Field (Div. III): Thanks to a 99-yard scoring pass allowed, an offsides call in the final minute which could have given the ball back — and what Higley felt were blown calls between a touchdown and fumble — Tucson Canyon del Oro held on to edge Higley last week, setting up this matchup. It stands to reason, however, that based on recent trends, CDO has little chance against Williams Field, which blew out Higley a couple weeks ago. The Black Hawks passed the first test with ease in life after QB Jeddediah Fagg (broken collarbone) as Cole Patterson had a big night against Avondale Agua Fria (8 of 12 for 189 yards passing and 3 touchdowns). The Black Haws’ running game and defense are too good here, and they’ll march onto the semifinals. Sooner or later, the Black Hawks will get another Queen Creek-Saguaro-Desert Edge matchup and be pushed to their limit, but not yet.
Prediction: Williams Field 41, Canyon del Oro 17
No. 9 Higley at No. 8 Canyon del Oro: Those first two games of the season Higley (pictured in blue) forfeited for using an ineligible might have ultimately helped the Knights stay slightly higher in the playoff seedings, but the Knights would have probably been more comfortable facing No. 6 Shadow Ridge or No. 7 Sabino (plus it wouldn’t set up a possible quarterfinal rematch against No. 1 Williams Field). CDO is balanced, but the Dorados are going to run the ball (240 yards per game, 6.2 yards per carry), and that’s been a troublesome area for the Knights’ defense (see Phoenix Christian, Queen Creek, Saguaro and Williams Field games). Conversely, however, Higley can run the ball with Ricky Marshall and throw with QB Tyler Bloom back in the fold this week after missing the Williams Field loss with a shoulder injury. Further, the CDO schedule hasn’t been stingy, are they ready to handle Higley’s offensive balance.
Prediction: Higley 31, Canyon del Oro 24
