For a half at least, it looked as though Salpointe Catholic might run away with one against Campo Verde, but the Coyotes would not go quietly.
After losing each of its first three games – the first such streak for the program in more than a decade – Mountain View was desperate for a win, and the Toros didn't care how they got it.
Seton Catholic senior running back Antonio Campanella only needed to touch the ball twice for Seton to capture a 55-0 victory over Cortez.

Who is afraid of the big, bad wolf? Certainly not East Valley Tribune readers, who voted Chandler High School’s wolf as the best school mascot for the second consecutive year.
Having Wolves as a mascot is hardly unique. According to the website highschoolnicknames.homestead.com, Wolves are the 29th-most common selection among high schools nationally. Even two other high schools in Arizona — Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale and Estrella Foothills High School in Goodyear — share the nickname of Canis lupus.
But Chandler High School can claim something its state brethren lack: longevity. Established in 1914, Chandler High has existed in some form for an entire century.
Chandler High’s student body has done its part to uphold the proud Wolves name. According to the school’s website, Chandler High has produced 50 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists in the past six years and the school recently received an “A” grade from the Arizona Department of Education.
In sports, the Wolves football team, led by Bryce Perkins and Chase Lucas, is one of the best Division I squads in Arizona and is expected to contend for a state championship this season.
So perhaps the only people who should fear the big, bad wolf — affectionately named “Scruffy” at Chandler High — is anyone who doubts the students, faculty, staff and alumni of the Chandler High School Wolves.

An independent study by a home-security company based on FBI statistics ranked the town of Gilbert as the fifth-safest city in Arizona.
For the past two years, the Division I boys’ state golf title has resided in Mesa. That streak could very well extend to three years this year.
One of my first actions as mayor was to announce the formation of the Falcon Strategic Visioning Commission. For more than 75 years, Mesa’s Falcon Field Economic Activity Area (FFEAA) has led the nation in aviation innovation. From the early 1940s when WWII U.S. and British cadets trained over the skies of Mesa, to today where multimillion dollar, cutting-edge aircraft continue to set the standard in aviation; the FFEAA is one of Mesa’s most dynamic and dense zones of employment and economic opportunity.

When you stare death in the face one day, which we all will have to do, will you be able to say, “I have lived a full life? I am ready to die.” Wait! I know death is not a popular subject, but please don’t turn the page just yet to the sports section to catch up on high school football stats. I would ask you to just give me a few minutes of your time to describe a full life that you can live in and through Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Sometimes newspaper opinion generates the cream of community-thinking, which, in truth, is what it’s supposed to do. And, another plus: Readers’ constructive input drowns out the belly-aching from tweeter-types.
Westwood High School overwhelmed Mesa High School early and hung on late to beat the Jackrabbits 38-28, giving the Warriors their first win against Mesa in four years.
Highland coach Pete Wahlheim may be biased, but he thinks Hawks senior Josh Chadwick is the best running back in the state. It would be hard for Mountain View coach had DeGrenier not to think so, too, after Friday night.
Nothing was going right for the Hamilton Huskies: They had surrendered 28 straight points to the Pinnacle Pioneers and found themselves trailing on the road for the first time with less than two minutes to play.

Tailgating is fine and dandy — and definitely fun if you’ve got the time — but if like us you’ve got five things to do before kickoff and no time for packing the cooler, here are five places to grab a bite before or after the big game.
