The top teams all held steady this week, keeping the rankings intact. The offense continues to roll in the Grand Canyon State, as the 10 teams averaged 46.9 points in their victories. But defenses did their job too; there were five shutouts in all, capped by Blue Ridge's fourth game in a row without an opposing point allowed. The game of the week came between Deer Valley and Apollo, which ended in overtime as the fifth-ranked Skyhawks prevailed.
