Aztec vs. Farmington
The Tigers’ offense is riding high after blasting defending 4A state champion Taos 38-0, scoring a combined 128 points in three games.
The Scorpions, meanwhile, are still putting up giant numbers on the scoreboard. FHS has scored a combined 135 points over the first three weeks of 2019.
It should be a high-scoring slugfest between two unbeaten squads, but defense could be the deciding factor.
Aztec’s logged back-to-back shutout victories, while FHS’s total points surrendered gradually decreased each of its first three games (from 33, to 24, to 21).
Navajo Prep vs. Crownpoint
The Eagles look to finish a four-game home stand on a strong note.
Prep is finding its stride on defense after its zone blitz schemes forced Shiprock into making some hasty throws.
If the Eagles force multiple three-and-outs and set up decent field position for the offense, they could very well end the night rather quickly.
Bloomfield vs. Los Alamos
The defending 4A state runner-up Bobcats will finally play in front of the home crowd for the first time in 2019.
Driven by missing out on a blue trophy last December, Bloomfield’s core group on defense is back and playing lights out again in 2019.
BHS is averaging just 16 points allowed per game.
