Chaparral (8-0, 3-0) at North Canyon (3-5, 0-3)
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Address: 1700 E. Union Hills Dr., Phoenix
Key matchup: North Canyon was lit up defensively by Scottsdale Horizon’s spread-em-out attack last week, and now gets the opposite in Dwayne Garret, Cole Tyree and Chaparral’s powerful running game.
Key stat: Horizon’s Ryan Stanford threw for 346 yards and four TDs last week against North Canyon.
The intrigue: Not much. Hard to imagine North Canyon can hang around long with Chaparral if the Firebirds continue to TCB the way they have so far this season. North Canyon’s struggling offense won’t get a break from the Firebirds defense either.
