Downtown Athletic Conference (AAU): FOOTBALL ROUNDUP (NEWS & NOTES)
BIG WEEKEND COMING UP
Murphy vs South Central: 4pm at Hamilton
Murphy (1-0-1/1-1-1) shut out the highly regarded Phoenix Grizzlies (1-1-1/2-1-1. The Grizzlies shut out South Central (0-3/0-2). Easy enough, south needs to win and if they do they wil see the Grizzlies on the 29th. A loss and they'll be done for the year. Murphy's 12U are the hope of the district whigh was an elementary & juniot high powerhouse 2008-2012 with 5 titles between the two divisions. They failed to field a junior high squad this year. If Murphy wins they are a lock for the city championship game on the 5th, probably vs the Grizzlies. A loss and it's a big mess in 12U.
Phoenix Grizzlies vs City West Soldiers 12U
Last year the Soldiers handed the Grizzlies their only loss, 30-0. The Grizzlies were unbeaten prior to meeting City West and were favorites going in. The Grizzlies are once again winning but suffered a wake up call vs Murphy last week at Phoenix Christian. The Grizzlies have had a year to think about last years loss. No doubt the Soldiers will be ready.
Phoenix Grizzlies vs City West Soldiers 10U
The Grizzlies little guys get to tangle with the little soldiers.
JUNIOR HIGH SCHEDULE
Phoenix Christian vs South Central.
Both teams are playing for pride and a chance to meet the first place Grizzlies. South (1-1) has had it's way in the Junior high division, along with Phoenix Christian for the past 4 years as theyve been the only champions either on their own merit and as a united team in 2014. South won the conference last year. Phoenix Christian, after being champs and co-champs from 2012-2014, found themselves without a team in 2015, but they are back and this is a gut check for their squad and a school with a proud tradit, ion. The winner will have and outside shot vs the Grizzlies, the looser may or may not get a bowl game and will probably be on the second tier schedule the remaining two weeks, probably vs newcomer Julian.

FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: GRIZZLIES AND MURPHY HOST GAMES SATURDAY
|Grizzlies eager to defend title|
The Phoenix Grizzlies , defending 6th grade champs and 8th grade spring game kings, host Team Murphy and the Patriots of the Glendale Youth Project (GYP).
Both elementary teams have a win under their belts.
The GYP and Central Phoenix Tackle have been partners for almost 10 years with a 50/50 split in the win column.
The Grizzlies elementary team got off to a flying start with a 24-o shut out vs Casa Grande. Murphy had a different result as they lost to a Casa Grande team in their non conferense season opener.
This one counts.
The Grizzlies Junior high team returns a loaded group of skill players and should be explosive offensively and hard hitting on the defensive side. This is a non league tuneup for both teams. Opponents will be watching.
