The Hawks picked up a much-needed victory last week over Campo Verde to move back over .500 and will be the heavy favorite to win this one. Highland has been much better than Gilbert this season, but there are a couple caveats: A) this is a rivalry game, and while the Tigers don’t have much shot at the playoffs, they shouldn’t have any trouble getting motivated to play against their neighbors; B) Highland tends to play close games because it is very ground-oriented and plays tough defense. The Hawks have superior personnel, but don’t be surprised if there are a few tense moments early before they finally pull away...
Prediction: Highland 24, Gilbert 10

“What sound does our Sammy Snake make?”
Campo Verde continued its successful start to the 2013 season with a 31-8 win over Gilbert on Thursday night at Campo Verde. The Coyotes (4-0) led 17-0 at halftime and except for the third quarter controlled the game on both sides of the ball.
The Coyotes captured the best win of their season last week by defeating Corona del Sol. They moved to 3-0 on the year, and the team has a legitimate chance at winning its first five games with matchups against Gilbert and Maryvale on the horizon. Skyline, though, only mustered 247 yards of total offense, so it wasn’t a dominant performance by any stretch. Gilbert is 0-3 on the year after a loss to Campo Verde but the schedule has done the Tigers no favors. Even though one of these teams is winless and the other undefeated, the outcome should be close. Confidence may come into play, as the Coyotes have to be feeling good about themselves while the Tigers are down on their luck. One big turnover or long touchdown either way could also be the difference.
Prediction: Skyline 17, Gilbert 13
