The postseason is completely upon Southern Arizona schools with six teams still carrying the banner for this area.
The games on Friday:
No. 15 Phoenix Sunnyslope (6-4) at No. 2 Salpointe (8-2)
— Salpointe Football (@SCLancerNation) November 18, 2021
No. 11 Goodyear Millennium (5-5) at No. 6 Desert View (9-1)
Stat of the day: Desert View is the lowest 9-1 seeded team since 2016. Not counting the smaller 2020 playoffs, no other team that won 9 regular season games was lower than a 5th seed.
DV is 6th seed.

No. 12 Canyon del Oro (6-4) at No. 5 Lake Havasu (7-2)
Good to know that @cdo_football was able to charter a bus this afternoon to Lake Havasu for tomorrow night's 4A playoff against Lake Havasu. That means they can wake up there and be at somewhat of a normal routine on gameday instead of sitting on a bus for 8 hours.
