WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND: The Volcano Vista Hawks have showed that their defense is their strongpoint allowing just three touchdowns in the last two games against La Cueva and Manzano. Las Cruces is coming off a huge 30 point win over Cibola, but still looking to make a statement in their home opener. This dangerous group racked up nearly 600-yards of offense last week.

This week we have some very interesting small school match ups in the Southwest Region, but the Game of the Week takes place Friday night in Las Cruces as the 0-2 Volcano Vista Hawks look for their first win of the season against the Las Cruces Bulldawgs in the Dawg's first home game of the season.
Last week Las Cruces racked up close to 600-yards of offense against Cibola and Volcano Vista gave up another second half lead to lose to Manzano 14-7 in the final minutes.
We also have El Paso Canutillo making the short trip to face off with Gadsden a team that has lost their first two games by a combined seven points.
Deming heads to Hatch Valley for a regional match up, Cobre and Lordsburg each try for their first win of the season, Silver and Tularosa square off in what should be a high scoring affair, Hot Springs hosts Ruidoso who lost big to Socoro last week, and Mesilla Valley hosts the Cloudcroft Bears in what should be a blowout.
Stat stars from week two: Last week Las Cruces High Running Back Xavier Hall ran for over 200-yards and three touchdowns against Cibola in their 48-18 win in Albuquerque on Saturday. Mesilla Valley's dual quarterback set had Tim Vida threw for 100-yards and a touchdown, while 6-f-oot-6, Devon Tourtillott threwfor 185-yards and one score in Mesilla Valley's big win against McCurdy on Satruday.

The game of the week in the Northern Area is the Aztec Tigers taking on the Durgano, Colorado Demons. Last year the Demons played the Tigers close in this regional rivalry game. The Tigers are coming off a 60-0 over Los Alamos in a game that was over at halftime literally.
Speaking of Los Alamos, they open their first home game against Farmington. The Scorpions are 2-0 on the season running past Gallup and Bernalillo to start the season. Grants 2-0 faces Piedra Vista who lost big to Montrose last weekend. If Grants wanted to make a statement, now would be the time against Piedra Vista, a likely play-off team.

Robertson is 0-2 after losing to Portales and Lovington in back to back weeks. Socorro travels to Raton in the week three 3A game of the week.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND: The Carlsbad Cavemen are coming off a two game winnings streak beating both Roswell and Canutillo in consecutive weeks. Last week the Cavemen forced six interceptions against Canutillo in a big week two win. Mayfield has played a daunting first two games and they've both been thrillers. They beat Chapin 28-27 and then lost to Montwood 49-48 in overtime.
Welcome to week Three of the 2011 New Mexico Prep Football Season. During each week leading up to the Friday Night action, NMPreps.com will release our weekly prep football previews by region.
We have some massive games taking place during week three of the prep football season in the Southeast Section of New Mexico. 1-1 Roswell will try for the upset against 1-1 Hobbs in Watson Memorial.
The Hobbs Eagles allowed 45 points against Artesia last week, while Roswell rocked Kirtland Central Saturday in Roswell.
Manzano heads to Artesia for a statewide marquee match up. Manzano's offense looked dismal last week against Volcano Vista pulling out a late quarter 14 point rally to beat the Hawks 14-7. The Bulldogs have never beaten the Monarchs and two years ago allowed Manzano to score 63 points in an ugly homecoming loss.
The 1-1 Mayfield Trojans head to Carlsbad to play the 2-0 Cavemen. The Cavemen forced six interceptions last week against Canutillo, while Mayfield lost an overtime thriller to Montwood 49-48. The Goddard Rockets now 2-0 head to face Canyon, Texas a team they beat badly during the 2010 season.
Canyon is 1-0 on the year after beating Lubbock High School in week two. Portales and Texico go at it in a small school primer. Portales in 1-1 after losing to Muleshoe, while Texico is 2-0 after beating Spring Lake Earth last weekend.
