Prep football: Top 10 teams in the Valley this week

Palo Verde's football team appears to be on a mission. The Panthers didn't lose a game last year until they were knocked off by eventual state champion Bishop Gorman in the state semifinals.

This year -- at last, after five weeks of games -- it looks like Palo Verde could take the next step.

Following a three-touchdown victory against Centennial last Friday, the Panthers remain in the top spot of the Home News weekly rankings.

1. Palo Verde (5-0): The Panthers might not lose all year.

2. Bishop Gorman (5-1): The Gaels defense will keep them in a lot of games.

3. Las Vegas (4-1): The Wildcats showed why they are the Northeast Division's best team last Friday with an easy win against Chaparral.

4. Cheyenne (4-1): Another week, another blowout victory for the Desert Shields.

5. Del Sol (4-1): Del Sol easily handled Liberty last Friday.

6. Legacy (5-0): The Longhorns aren't playing like a third-year school.

7. Spring Valley (3-1): Close setback at Gorman is nothing to be ashamed about.

8. Basic (4-1): Wolves upset Silverado last Friday and sit in first place of the Southeast Division.

9. Cimarron-Memorial (3-2): Cimarron has won three straight games and is playing like the Spartans of old.

10. Arbor View (4-1): The Aggies lost to Cimarron-Memorial last Friday and have a tough test tomorrow against Legacy.

Dropped out: Liberty, the Patriots lost to Del Sol. Silverado, the Skyhawks' loss to Basic was their second straight.
