Time: 7 p.m., Friday
Address: 1700 E. Union Hills Dr., Phoenix
Key matchup: Pressure on North Canyon quarterback and its spread offense is a must for the Mountain Lions who were a little shoddy on defense (between the 20’s last week), but limited Corona to 12 points.
Key stat: North Canyon breezed past Tucson (34-6 last week), a winless team in 2006.
The intrigue: Red Mountain must play better tonight if it truly wants to be considered a top 5 team in 5A-I. North Canyon is back competing in the top level of 5A after two playoff seasons in 5A-II and a state title in 2005.
