However, Salpointe is hardly one-dimensional. The ground game is always a threat the Lancers can utilize. Junior running back Nicholas Cole leads the team with 75 carries for 369 yards and 6 touchdowns.
This game is crucial for the playoff chances of both Salpointe and Tucson High. The Badgers have yet to lose at home this season and this game will surely house a playoff atmosphere.

SMALL BALL PREVIEW
Clifton at Pima 7:00 pm
Pima hosts Clifton for their homecoming game. Like Pima needed any extra incentive to win. If they do they will finish the season undefeated and be on the road to another championship game.
Pima should easily coast through this game, unless Coach Bryant plays the younger kids. Clifton started the season hot but was decimated with injuries that won't even let them be in this game.
Prediction: Pima 46 Clifton 0
Morenci at Thatcher (at Eastern Arizona College)
Thatcher can't get caught looking ahead to their big showdown next week with San Manuel. This is Thatcher's homecoming, but that doesn't matter with a game Morenci Wildcat team coming off the hill, with playoffs on their minds.
Morenci could really put a wrench in the situation if they could upset the untested Eagles. However, the three headed monster of Thatcher will prevail.
Prediction: Thatcher 56 Morenci 6
Rio Rico at Safford
The third Gila Valley homecoming game will be a must win for the Safford Bulldogs. After their 34-14 loss to Willcox last week, the Dogs need to win out to make the playoffs and also need some help from team in front of them.
The Dogs will be nursing some fairly major injuries to starting fullback Brannon Maldanado (ankle) and Mike McHugh (head). Even so, the Hawks should be no match for the Dogs.
Prediction: Safford 38 Rio Rico 12
