Joseph City already has 2 losses. Mogollon has one. Both teams still have to play Mayer and Glendale Prep after this week. 4 or 5 possible losses to the team that loses this week.
A lot of speculation, but you would have to figure that both Mayer and Glendale Prep are not gimme games for Mogollon and Joseph City like they might have been in previous seasons.
