Coming off a nice win against Westwood last week, especially with its play in the second half, Mesa found itself a little bit. The Jackrabbits struggled offensively against Highland (a 7-3 loss the Jackrabbits might be kicking themselves over later this season for not winning), but the return of Turrell Pietz-Noble to the offensive backfield from injury was a boost Mesa needed to help put up 27 points to go with an aggressive, hard-playing defense. Valley Vista (2-1) has blowout wins against Surprise Willow Canyon and Phoenix North Canyon, sandwiched by a loss to Mountain View. Damian Alarcon (58 percent completion, 6 TD, 3 INT) has done a solid job running the offense, with Terry Juniel and Jeff Harris the team’s big WR threats. The Monsoon isn't a bad team, and can move the ball on Mesa, but the Jackrabbits’ defense isn’t bad either.
Prediction: Mesa 21, Valley Vista 13
