Cheers to another great year of high school football! Here are five things for Football Friday Night week 11:

Last night: Franklin clinches playoff berth in win over El Dorado, 42-24

Following their loss to Eastwood last week, the Cougars needed a win against El Dorado Thursday in order to qualify for the playoffs. They executed their goal with a 42-24 win against the Aztecs, finishing 6-4, 5-3 in 1-6A on the year.

Our Football Friday Night host Paul Mackinnon reported that the contest was close in the first half (28-21), seeing El Dorado inch closer (28-24) in the third quarter. Standout senior Beau Sparks returned an interception for a touchdown for Franklin, while also scoring on a receiving touchdown in Franklin's strong close to the game.

Give Eastwood their flowers

In their 55-36 win at Franklin last week, Eastwood (7-3) proved they are one of the toughest teams in the city. Contrary to how Julio Lopez has run things out at Eastwood, the Troopers' identity on offense is run-oriented. They ran the ball 50 times against Franklin, with only 14 pass attempts, most of which came late in the game when the Troopers put the Cougars out of reach. As a team, Eastwood has 1,869 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns, averaging nearly seven yards per rush attempt.

Defensively, the Troopers are also one of the best in the city, which is also saying a lot with the likes of Pebble Hills and Eastlake in 1-6A. But the Troopers have earned that title. The defense has forced two or more interceptions in three straight games, totaling 11 interceptions on the year. They put pressure on the quarterback. They shut down the run.

With a win, Eastwood can claim a share of the district 1-6A title and the top overall seed in the Division II 6A playoff bracket.

Eastlake (6-3) deserves a lot of praise this year as well. Though they've dropped their last two games to Franklin (26-12) and Pebble Hills (38-14), the Falcons have a top-tier defense that can hang in with anyone. The most important thing with Eastlake is scoring points. The Falcons scored just 26 combined points in their two recent losses. Maybe coming off the bye week, Eastlake regroups offensively and finds ways to score more against Eastwood.

Prediction: Eastwood 41 - Eastlake 27 

Battle in the northeast: Chapin vs. Andress 

In what should be a rivalry classic for the second seed of District 1-5A Division II, Chapin and Andress will square off in a highly anticipated northeast matchup on Friday.

On one end, Andress (4-5) is led by Army football commit Malcolm Anderson, who is their all-around athlete on offense. Since returning from an injury early this year, Anderson continues to be the backbone of the team. He totaled 91 rushing yards and a touchdown in their 28-25 win last week against Burges.

Offensively, Chapin (4-5) relies on freshman sensation Davion Singleton, who helped revitalize their offense when the coaching staff switched him to quarterback mid-year. Trusting the freshman at quarterback has been a great decision, as the Huskies are playoff bound once again. Singleton rushed for 212 yards and threw for 72 yards, with five total touchdowns in their 42-6 win against El Paso High last week.

This one should be a terrific game. This is what rivalries are made for.

Prediction: Chapin 27 - Andress 20 

Canutillo cruising to another district title 

Speaking of District 1-5A Division II, let's talk about the district champions in Canutillo (7-2). Despite losses to Pebble Hills (23-0) and Del Valle (38-7), along with an early season injury to standout LJ Martin, the Eagles patched together another great season under coach Scott Brooks.

One of the most impressive parts about Canutillo has been their defense. Since losing to Del Valle, the Eagles have allowed an average of just seven points per game. They shut out both Burges (31-0) and Chapin (26-0) this season. They have forced nine interceptions and four forced fumbles on defense this year.

They face El Paso High (5-4) on Friday, which in their own lane is a great story. The Tigers beat Burges (27-16) for the final playoff spot in the district, marking a successful turnaround for coach Ray Aguilar Jr. Credit their top players like quarterback Gerry Chairez (754 passing yards, 6 TDs) running back Lueranze Johnson (148 yards per game) and wide receiver Pablo Gonzalez (70 receiving yards per game).

Prediction: Canutillo 17 - El Paso 6 

Hanks-Ysleta: Win and advance to the playoffs 

Hanks (3-6) will travel to Ysleta (2-7) in a win-and-advance matchup that will decide the final playoff spot in 1-5A Division I on Friday.

Del Valle can earn their district title, as they face Bel Air (8-1) on Friday. The Conquistadores (8-1) have been near perfect this year, with their only loss coming to Pebble Hills. Parkland can get the second seed in the district if they beat winless Horizon on Friday.

Both Hanks and Ysleta are coming off losses last week. Hanks is led by quarterback Marcus Porras (16 TDs) and running back Ruben Laguna (630 rushing yards). Ysleta's top players include quarterback Evan Martinez (1,014 passing yards) and running back Arath Gomez (687 rushing yards).

Prediction: Hanks 38 - Ysleta 35 

UTEP Squeezes Past NM State 20-13 in the Battle of I-10

In a game of two halves, the Miners won their first game of the 2022 season against NMSU, 20-13.
