Outlook: After a 3-0 start, things have soured some for Notre Dame.
The Saints have had problems on offense. Last week, they scored only six points in a loss to Bradshaw Mountain.
With unbeaten Cactus Shadows still to play, the Saints know they really need to win tonight to make sure they get into the 4A-II playoffs — the season-long goal.
Sunnyslope was considered a preseason state title contender. A tough schedule nearly did the Vikings in early. They have survived.
Both teams can play good defense. This should game will have playoff-type aggressiveness.
