Here is the schedule for the annual Nate Johnson memorial wrestling tournament this weekend at Red Mountain High School.
The wrestling season is a few weeks old.
Nine weeks after several guys cried in the end zone after a Week 1 loss to Chaparral, the Saguaro football team is not on any Division III team's postseason "wish list."
Won or done?
Mesquite’s been one of the biggest surprises of 2013, as a convincing win over Poston Butte on Friday night improved its record to 7-1 on the season. The Wildcats will get their toughest task since Week 2 against Williams Field in this showdown against Marcos de Niza. Salpointe, Chaparral and Centennial are the clear class of Division II, but the winner of this game can make a claim to be right behind them on the second tier. Marcos de Niza has been one of the most unpredictable teams in the state, beating Horizon and Chaparral early on while losing to Campo Verde and struggling to put away Buena and Cesar Chavez. Padres quarterback Josh Eckley will be the most dynamic player on the field, and his performance could sway the outcome.
Prediction: Marcos de Niza 31, Mesquite 28

THIS WEEK’S GAMES
THIS WEEK’S GAMES
Junior quarterback Bryce Perkins completed 8 of 9 passes for 149 yards and a career-high five touchdowns to lead Chandler past Laveen Cesar Chavez, 41-21, on Friday night.
Westview didn't play great but still dispatched Laveen Cesar Chavez, 36-20, on Friday. The Knights have a very easy schedule the rest of the way and should finish the regular season undefeated. The real test will come in the playoffs. Westview remains at No. 4 in the rankings.
Chandler LB Logan Gunkel goes through the team's stretch routine in pregame warm-ups before facing Laveen Cesar Chavez on Sept. 27, 2013.
This Hamilton-Mountain Pointe thingy next Friday night is a big game.
5. Ironwood Ridge 4-1...
4. Chaparral 3-1...
3. Centennial 3-1...
2. Marcos de Niza 4-0...
1. Salpointe Catholic 4-0...
There are no changes in the top-5, but there was a lot of action. Ironwood Ridge and Centennial rolled, but Chaparral had to claw itself out of a 28-0 hole to beat Desert Mountain, 35-0. Marcos de Niza, meanwhile, had trouble putting away Laveen Cesar Chavez until late in the contest. Salpointe continues to dominate and looks like the clear-cut favorite at this point, but the rest of the top-5 is in flux.
With its starting quarterback banged up and limited, Marcos de Niza needed its defense to provide a performance unlike what it had through the first three weeks of the season.
The Wolves bounced back nicely this week with an easy win over Cesar Chavez to remain at No. 5 in the rankings. Quarterback Bryce Perkins threw for five touchdowns and the offense once again showed its explosiveness. Chandler has a huge game on Friday against Hamilton as it hopes to finally show it can come out on top against an elite Division I opponent.
Final scores from Week 3 of the high school football season:
Basha heads toward the field before taking on Cesar Chavez on Sept. 12, 2013.
Basha's band performs at halftime of the game between the Bears and Cesar Chavez on Sept. 12, 2013.
Basha improved to 2-1 with a convincing 54-28 win over visiting Cesar Chavez in a Division I football game Thursday night. The Bears used timely defense and a consistent short passing game to hold off Cesar Chavez.
This could be a shootout, which could be Marcos’ best chance against Salpointe Catholic’s explosive offensive capabilities. The Padres put up 78 points this season on Buena and 56 on Chaparral. Salpointe (4-0) is a team more than one East Valley coach said could be the best team in the state regardless of division, and is off to a hot start behind dual-threat QB Andrew Cota, WR Cameron Denson and WR Kaelin Deboskie. The Lancers cruised through their first four games of the season, including a 48-7 win against Liberty (Nev.), the same team Hamilton beat 14-10 last week. This will easily be Salpointe’s toughest test of the year for sure, and Marcos showed defensive improvements last week in beating Laveen Cesar Chavez. Eckley’s health and Marcos’ ability to force a couple turnovers and otherwise make Salpointe dink-and-dunk its way down the field are the keys, but a banged up Eckley plus Salpointe’s explosiveness on offense against a solid-but-not-invincible Marcos defense is going to make it difficult for the Padres to get in/out of Tucson (1-4 in the past five trips to the area) with a win...
Prediction: Salpointe Catholic 34, Marcos de Niza 24
Ka’wuan Ellis might have overshot it just a tad, but he still has some bragging rights.
The Pride dominated Cesar Chavez from the get-go on Friday night, scoring 44 first-half points in an easy win. Mountain Pointe has another easy opponent this week against Maryvale, but then comes the gauntlet: Chandler, Hamilton, Desert Vista and Brophy. The Pride remain ranked No. 2.
