1A State Playoff (1st round)
Orme vs. Joseph City
These two teams played to a 14 all tie last weekend. This will be the best first round game in the 1A playoffs and probably the only game that isn't ended by the forty-two-point mercy rule. The teams know each other well.
My Prediction: Joseph City 16 Orme 14
Tempe Prep vs. Clifton
In this years first meeting the Trojans beat Tempe Prep 27-13. That was before a full season of injuries and in Tempe's case, a playoff game. This one isn't even close as Clifton keeps the dream alive for the State Championship.
My Prediction: Clifton 48 Tempe Prep 12
Mogollon vs. Salome
This will be the first meeting of the season for these two teams. Salome lost to Joe City during the regular season. The same Joe City team that Mogollon beat for the top spot earlier this weekend. This will be a long drive for the Frogs, in a game that will be over by halftime.
My Prediction: Mogollon 58 Salome 0
Pima vs. St. David
Pima blanked the Tigers 34-0 on opening weekend in a game that Pima head coach John Bryant said that his team didn't play well in. Bad news for St. David, Pima is playing well now. And after St. David had to play earlier this week just to get into the playoffs, they tank may be empty.
My Prediction: Pima 52 St. David 6
