Badgers Playoff Run To Begin At Desert Edge
Featured

02 November 2019  
Quarterback Dellin Boyd will lead the Badgers in search of the schools first playoff win since 2007.

Second chance will require different result

Prescott will get a second shot at Desert Edge this season, as the playoff pairings have matched the Badgers and the Scorpions once again. Like the season opener, the game will be in Goodyear.

The first game was played on August 23, with Desert Edge winning 34-24.  The Badgers held leads of 14-7, and 17-13, in the first half of that game. Prescott produced 308 yards of total offense, but gave up 540 yards. Turnovers did not help the cause either. There is a lot of growth and development in personnel throughout the season, as seen by the amount of players getting game experience, plus the game time temperature will not be in the triple digits. 

The Scorpions won the 4A West Valley Region with a (4-0) record, winning the four games by an average of 24 points. Desert Edge finished  the regular season at (7-3) with losses to Saguaro, Millennium, and Salpointe Catholic.

Prescott lost to Desert Edge, Canyon del Oro, and Coconino.

Coconino, the Grand Canyon Region champion, will host a very good Gila Ridge team.

The Badgers will be seeking their first playoff win since 2007. Prescott lost in the first round last season at Greenway 40-29.
