Outlook: Casa Grande beat up on Skyline and Carl Hayden the past two weeks.
As long as the Cougars win games they should, they’ll stay in the playoff hunt, but 7-3 last year wasn’t good enough to get in with their schedule, so Casa Grande might need one or two more quality victories to sneak in. Expect to see plenty of Harnish Ayora, who averages nearly eight yards per carry. Joe Youcupicio is completing 73 percent of his passes for nine scores.
Yuma has won consecutive games against San Luis and Tucson, but was beaten up by St. Mary’s and Dobson earlier this year. Casa Grande lies somewhere in between.
