UPDATE: Desert Ridge takes the win over Red Mountain 17-7.
It's week eight of high school football and the ABC15 Game of the Week features fifth ranked Desert Ridge against 11th ranked Red Mountain.
Desert Ridge has a 6-1 record heading into the game. Their junior running back Taren Morrison has been on fire as of late, but Red Mountain is gaining momentum.
Desert Ridge has proven to be a power house with their only loss coming in the season opener against Cathedral High School (California). Since then, they've won six in a row, defeating Gilbert, Sandra Day O'Connor, Millennium, Brophy, Mesa and Skyline.
Red Mountain comes into this game with a record of 3-4. They're lead by quarterback Caleb Murray-Thomas, winning their last two in a row by beating Desert Mountain and shutting out Mesa 39-0 in week seven.
Every game counts as Red Mountain still fights to make the state playoffs while Desert Ridge is looking for that top spot in Division I.
