Key matchup: Deer Valley’s secondary will have its hands full trying to contain Desert Ridge’s top three receivers (Carl Curtis, Chris Heldore and Lucas Robinson), all of whom have a least 50 catches this season.
Key stat: Desert Ridge quarterback Josh Cain is averaging 306.9 passing yards per game, tops in the state.
The intrigue: A Desert Ridge victory more than likely sets up a rematch with No. 1 seed Peoria Centennial, which beat the Jaguars 34-0 in Week 1.
Time: 7 p.m.
