Outlook: Friday’s game will likely decide the playoff fate for one of these two teams.
The Eagles enter the game coming off a pair of big losses to 3A No. 1 Wickenburg and 2A No. 1 Phoenix Christian.
The Eagles will have to stop Crusader quarterback Jacob Franz, who has thrown for 601 yards in three games, 355 of those yards going to receiver Adam Mosbrucker.
