No. 9 Red Mountain at No. 8 Highland: Whether these two teams are, in fact, appropriately places at No. 8 and No. 9, can be argued any which way. But based on the proximity to one another, this should be shaping up a true 8-vs.-9 matchup, an absolute toss-up, coin-flip of a game. Both teams have played good defense of late, especially Highland. Can Red Mountain, which found itself after a 1-4 start to the season with a young team and relentless schedule, continue to succeed with Caleb Murray-Thomas and Brennen Dobson giving different looks offensively? Highland’s defense is stout, but the offense has shown flashes of effectiveness sprinkled in with struggles to score (including last week in a loss to Chandler). Still, that defense is strong and the Hawks are capable of putting up enough points in their methodical, grind-it-out fashion. It’s one of the more difficult games to predict this season because of the style, but somebody has to win eventually.
Prediction: Highland 23, Red Mountain 20

We’re used to walking into a room, flipping a switch and having the lights go on instantaneously.
It would benefit the U.S. Postal Service in the long run if they’d ceased nickel and dime-ing the customers to death — a penny here and a penny there which is just plain aggravating. It would be more practical making the rate hike to the nearest five cents, be it $.50 or $.55, and leave it at that. The increase overall to the individual is so small, one wouldn’t really notice. Just keeping up with inflation and no different than grocery shopping where few count pennies.

PHOENIX — Facing a splintered gay-rights community, supporters of legalizing same-sex weddings in Arizona have pulled the plug on putting the issue to voters next year.
This is one of the toughest games to call this week. Centennial (1-1) was easily beaten by Chandler in its opener but rebounded nicely last week with a win over Basha. Brophy (1-1) started off strong with a victory over Desert Mountain but lost to Hamilton last week and is only averaging 11 points per contest. The Broncos have a strong defense and a standout quarterback in Brian Woodward, but are not as explosive offensively as in past years. Centennial has star running back Dedrick Young leading the way but the defense is prone to lapses. This one seems like a coin flip.
Prediction: Centennial 20, Brophy 17
