www.FranchiseSportsMedia.com

 

Week 8 is here, and as the 702 High School Football regular season winds down, teams all across the valley are prepping to make their final push before the start of the post-season. This week, the Green Valley Gators travel to take on the #2 ranked Liberty Patriots in the FSM Prep Rally Game of the Week, and FSM decides to shake things up for the fans.

As we inch closer to the end of the 2022 regular season, the top teams are prepping to compete for their individual leagues, while others are just hoping to end the year on a high note. This week, the 1-5 Green Valley Gators hope to play spoiler for their 2nd place league opponent, 4-3 Liberty Patriots, in the FSM Prep Rally Game of the Week. 

After a rough 1-3 start to the year, the Liberty Patriots have turned their season around after racking off three-straight wins and now sit in second place in the 5A Southern-Mountain League. With two games left in the regular season, including the season finale against 5-1 Desert Pines, Liberty will need to secure a victory this week for a shot to set up a win-all game with the Jaguars in the final week of the season.

Friday’s game allows the Patriots to keep their hopes alive to win their league, while it also gives their opponent Green Valley the chance to spoil things for their league rivals.

The 2022 season has been a rough one for Green Valley. The Gators currently sit at 1-5, with four losses coming through the season’s first four weeks. The lone bright spot of the year came in week 6 when the Gators traveled to Basic and defeated a Wolves team that is currently one of the top contenders in the 4A division. In a down year with few victories, it can be difficult to stay motivated for the last stretch of the year, but this week may provide the Gators some incentive to get a moral victory.

If Green Valley can play the game of their lives and upset the Patriots Friday night, they can stand to get a final shot at their league rival by ultimately ending their chances at a league title. It’s a tall order to go in and defeat the #2 ranked team in the city, but Green Valley has shown this year that they are capable of sneaking up on a contender and stealing a win.

The FSM Prep Rally Game of the Week should make for a high-stakes match. As the Liberty Patriots attempt to stay in the race to win the 5A Southern-Mountain league, the Green Valley Gators will be looking to finish the year strong and upset one of the best high school teams in Las Vegas.

 

The FSM Prep Rally holds a fan voting poll to decide which games to attend in Week 8:

 

Each week through the 2022 season, the FSM Prep Rally has decided on which games to attend based on which games we believe the fans want to see. This week, FSM gives the power to the fans as we will open voting polls on social media for fans to decide which games we will attend. For the first fan voting poll this year, the two games to pick between will be Coronado vs Shadow Ridge and Mater East vs El Dorado.

 

Coronado vs Shadow Ridge

The 5-1 Cougars come into week 8 with a stout defense that has only allowed 57 points this year and has kept their opponents scoreless in four different games. The 6-1 Mustangs have been one of the most productive teams this year on offense, outscoring their opponents 283-91 and rushing for over 2000 yards through seven games. In a match-up between the top 4A Sky Football League contenders, the hard-nosed Coronado Cougars and the high-scoring Shadow Ridge Mustangs will clash for the first place spot in their league.

OR…

Mater Academy East vs Eldorado

3A Southern Mountain rivals Mater East and Eldorado face off in week 8. Despite going through a grueling 2022 season, 1-4 Mater East has found recent success after winning their first game of the year last week, beating Pinecrest 43-8. They now travel to Eldorado for a chance to make it back-to-back victories. Eldorado is 3-3 on the year and still in the race for the 3A Southern Mountain League title. Friday’s game against the league rival Knights will be a must-win for the Sun Devils if they hope to have a chance to compete for their league, as well as a spot in the 2022 postseason.
