The Rangers, who have allowed only 14 runs in league play, host the first game, with action moving north April 22. Speaking of bragging rights, Mesa Ridge (3-0 Metro) hosts Widefield (2-1) on Tuesday in the annual crosstown battle. . TCA and St. Mary's won twice last week to maintain their 1-2 rankings, while Peyton stayed at No. 3, despite seeing its season-opening, nine-game winning streak end with a setback to Kiowa on Saturday.
