Hamilton never has missed the high school football playoffs. For years, it was the Arizona big-school power.

The final week of the regular season is here, and it’s not looking good for the Huskies this time.

First-year Hamilton coach Mike Zdebski will experience his first Battle of Arizona Avenue as the Huskies take on top-ranked Chandler. Hamilton needs a win and some help from two or three other teams to make the big-school 16-team field. If the Huskies somehow slip in, this very likely is a preview of their first-round game.

Meanwhile, first-year coach Chris McDonald and the Basha Bears have rebounded from a 2-8 season and are all but assured a playoff berth. They look to knock off Perry in hopes of staying in the top eight and hosting a first-round playoff game.

Here is the complete East Valley schedule (kickoffs 7 p.m. unless noted).
