Marana vs. Fairfax

A swarm of Marana defenders team up to bring down a Fairfax High School player during the Tigers' 26-0 win over the Stampede on Friday, Aug. 24. 

We've officially survived two weeks of the high school football season (except for CDO, whose game against Prescott was rained out). 

We were treated to a defensive tour de force by the Marana Tigers, who romped Laveen's Fairfax High School 26-0 to improve to 2-0 this year. 

The Tigers and Coach Louie Ramirez have knocked off back-to-back Phoenix schools to open the season, beating Horizon 42-36 on Aug. 17. 

Elsewhere, the Catalina Foothills Falcons did not fare as well as their Southern Arizona zoological brethren, falling to Glendale's Cactus High School, 36-12. 

The Tigers and Falcons will meet this Friday at 7 p.m. at Marana High School in the lone matchup between local teams.
