The one upset, or the one closest to an upset, I pick Paradise Valley over Liberty. Who do you think will be upset, or the one closest to being upset?

This turned out to be quite an interesting bracket. One of the favorites to win it all here is a 9 seed and I actually see the 2 semifinals taking place in the quarterfinals. Here is how I see the 1st round turning out:
#1 Desert Edge vs #16 Shadow RidgeSR certainly has had a great year. I believe this is their first playoff appearance. Congrats! However, DE is just too much for them right now. I can't see SR putting up 30 on the DE defense and that is what it would take for them to have a chance. It will take an explosive offense to knock off the top seeded Scorpions.DE 41 - SR 21#8 Cactus vs #9 SaguaroIt is crazy to think that this is an 8-9 game. Few would disagree that Saguaro is the favorite to win here. Cactus keeps it closer than the regular season meeting, but not that much closer. Too many weapons on Saguaro's side.Saguaro 49 - Cactus 24#5 Williams Field vs #12 Campo VerdeWF has not looked very good lately even before QC took them out behind the woodshed. Campo was in the game last time and this could be closer than many think.WF 28 - Campo 24#4 Liberty vs #13 Paradise ValleyLiberty has looked the part of contender most of the year except for the DE game. The only other times they were in trouble was in the first half against PV and Sunrise and the entire game in a dogfight with Greenway. As good as T-Rog is, he will be the 2nd best QB in this game behind Finley which gives PV a punchers chance. However, I like Liberty in a shootout but not sure if they can handle a physical team that will run it down their throat. Lucky for them, PV is not that kind of team. They may not see a team like that til the semis.Liberty 49 - PV 38#3 Sabino vs #14 NogalesCant say I know all that much about either, so this is all based on reputation, record and schedule. Sabino is much better in all 3. I know Sabino is good, but I am not sure how good. Nogales, on the other hand, hasn't proven a thing. 8 bad wins, 1 blowout loss to Salpointe and a somewhat competitive loss to Sahuarita who has had an even weaker schedule.Sabino 45 - Nogales 7#6 Sahuarita vs #11 Sunrise MountainSunrise has more offense than Sahuarita has seen in the past 10 games combined. Sunrise's deficiencies on defense may keep this close for awhile.Sunrise 44 - Sahuarita 31#7 Maricopa vs #10 ThunderbirdThe only time Maricopa has seen an offense or a RB close to what Thunderbird has was in an absolute butt kicking from Marcos De Niza. They have had a great year, but are not quite up to this level yet. Thunderbird has to be a heavy favorite on the road.Thunderbird 41 - Maricopa 17#2 Queen Creek vs #15 Agua FriaThis could be a mismatch. Agua Fria hasn't beat a good team, was beat by 40+ by both D3 playoff teams they faced and lost in a game that really wasn't close to a non playoff team. Queen Creek's overall schedule wasn't that tough either, but they have proved themselves in big wins over WF and Perry. QC is a smash mouth team that can run and stop the run.QC 52 - AF 102nd round: I see the Saguaro vs DE winner going to the championship against the QC vs Thunderbird winner. I think Liberty beats WF and Sabino squeaks by Sunrise before both lose in the semis.

If Finley can keep Liberty off the field and match score for score could be interesting but I do think Liberty takes this.
