PAG METER FINALS FOR WEEK 4 

Thursday Night Football Finals

Liberty Patriots (1-2) at Buchanan Bears (4-0) 
Pag Meter line Buchanan -6

The Patriots come off a blowout loss to Central 30-3 and the Bears season begins on Thursday night. Are the Bears a contender? We will all find out. The Patriots have played two of the best TRAC teams with Clovis West and Central. Buchanan is playing a soft schedule with Hanford, Lemoore and next week vs (division 4) Porterville. The Bears did crush Bullard so if they beat Liberty then welcome the Buchanan Bears into division 1.
This game will have two outstanding offensive lines and some really good running backs. The Patriots will lead with junior Sammy Stewart and the Bears with Trevor Ervin and Kendall Melton.
The X factor in this game will be the Patriots defense and Bears QB Ty Hall. The Patriots defense did not match up against Central but then again, there’s not a team in the valley that matches up with Central. Can the Patriots put pressure on the Bears QB Ty Hall??  Can the Patriots defense slow down the Bears running game? The Patriots got run over!
Pag Meter Prediction Buchanan 33 Liberty Bakersfield 27

Final Buchanan 34 Liberty 28 (Nailed the point spread)

Kendall Milton rushed for 248 yards and scored 4 TD’s (19. 60, 47, and 46 yards) Trevor Ervin scored on a 25 yard TD run when he ran over 7 Patriots. Amazing run! Pag Meter almost nailed the score.

IZZAK PEREZ from the Golden West Trailblazers

The Stallions are growing into a football program and Golden West is loaded and thinking a division 4 section championship. This could be the year for GW to win it all before they get bumped into division 2 or 3 where they belong. Once Matt Johnson builds the Stallions into a football program, they will be moved up as well. GW is 5 years ahead of MS in building a program.
The X factor is the Stallions offense and can they get it going against a very good GW defense? Did not happen.
Pag Meter Prediction Golden West 42 Madera South 14

This is the outstanding Thunder defense vs the outstanding Golden Eagles offense.
Leading the Thunder on defense are seniors Hunter Gonzalez (39 tackles) and Blayden Brown (5 interceptions).
The Golden Eagles have so many weapons with Rodney Wright, Ricardo Arias, Nick Coleman, Jayden Helms, Dakota Helms, and Chad Day to name a few and don’t forget about kicker Eli Riofrio.

Pag Meter line Centennial -7

Screenshot_20170910-173926 (1)

MARCUS FULCHER from the Bullard Knights

This is the rematch of the 2009 valley championship. It’s the young Knights vs the Golden Hawks that wants to be noticed. Bullard will be VERY good next year but making way too many sophomore mistakes on both sides of the ball. The G Hawks are very good on both sides of the ball and playing at home.
It’s a tremendous match up of the Knights junior RB Marcus Fulcher vs Golden Hawks senior QB Will Alexander.
The X factor is the Knights defense against a good G Hawks offense.
Pag Meter Predictions Centennial 24 Bullard 17

Final Bullard 34 Centennial 25

Marcus Fulcher rushed for 181 yards, scored 3 touchdowns and the G Hawks committed 4 turnovers.

Final CVC 32 Chowchilla 28

 

Clovis East T Wolves (0-4) at Sunnyside Wildcats (2-2) 
Pag Meter line Sunnyside -14

Final Sunnyside 21 Clovis East 14

 

Clovis North Broncos (1-3) vs Edison Tigers (1-3) 
Pag Meter line Edison -17

Screenshot_20170910-173619

This is a matchup of a struggling Broncos offense vs the best defense in the valley. Can the Broncos get in the end zone?
The X factor is on the other side of the ball. The Broncos defense is real good and the Tigers offense is so close at being a competitor but dangerous. Can the Broncos score on the Tigers defense? Nope!

Roosevelt Rough Riders (3-1) at Washington Union Panthers (0-4) 
Pag Meter line Roosevelt -7

LIVE ON 790 ESPN the DEUCE

Screenshot_20170910-173736

Roosevelt Rough Riders QB JORDAN DE LA ROSA

The Rough Riders are still learning how to be a good team and that’s not easy if you haven’t been good for 30 years. Roosevelt lost to Mendota 12-6 and they were outplayed and out coached and they had no answers for the Aztecs defense that put pressure on QB Jordan Del La Rosa with man to man defense. Now a good team that was favored by 20 points should have made the adjustments with the talent and speed the Riders have.
The Panthers are young and have plenty of speed but won’t get after it like Mendota did.
The X factor is the Rough Riders AGAIN can’t look ahead to Selma next week.
Pag Meter Prediction Roosevelt 27 Washington Union 20

Final Roosevelt 18 Washington Union 15

The Rough Riders had to hang on after having an 18-0 lead in the 3rd quarter. Howard Maxwell scored 2 TD’s and Estaban Carrillo caught a 30 yard TD pass from Jordan De La Rosa. For the Panthers, new QB Zorian Temple scored on a 26 yard TD run and Devontae Massey out jumped the Rough Riders on 4th and 27 for a 29 yard TD pass from Temple.

Sanger Apaches (4-0) at Lemoore Tigers (1-3) 
Pag Meter line Sanger -19

The Apaches steam rolled the T Wolves and the Tigers got steam rolled by Buchanan. Apaches QB Blake Wolfe had another good night going 12-13 for 206 yards and 3 TD passes. Jalen Cropper caught 7 passes for 146 yards with 2 TD passes. So how good are the Apaches? Hard to say?? While all the other division 1 teams are killing each other, the Apaches are playing nerf football in the park. Next week they get to play the struggling Reedley Pirates. if the Apaches had the schedules of Bullard, Edison, Clovis West, Clovis, Bakersfield, and/or Liberty, they would probably be 0-3. That being said the Apaches are good but not 2016 Apaches good.
Pag Meter Prediction Sanger 41 Lemoore 21

Final Sanger 40 Lemoore 38 (Double overtime)

The Apaches have now won 20 straight regular games. Josiah Lopez caught a 17 yard TD pass from Blake Wolfe in overtime and Lopez caught the 2 point play. The Tigers scored in overtime when Kristian Gayton took it in from 6 yards but missed the 2 point play. Blake Wolfe went 13-17 for 200 yards and 3 TD passes. (Jalen Cropper 65 yards, Jake Boust, 13 yards, and Lopez 17 yards) Tigers QB Kristian Gayton threw 3 TD passes.

Selma Bears (4-0) at Coalinga Horned Toads (2-2) 
Pag Meter line Selma -17

The Bears are the only 3-0 that is still trying to find last years Bears magic. They are winning but it’s not real good Bears football like they are used to. The Central Sequoia is a tough league. The Bears need to improve on the running game.
For the Toads to win at home they can not give up the big plays like they did against Kerman.
Pag Meter Prediction Selma 30 Coalinga 13

Final Selma 28 Coalinga 6

 

Tulare Western Mustangs (3-0) vs Redwood Rangers (2-2)
Pag Meter line Tulare Western -19

This is a very interesting match up. At the beginning of the year the Mustangs had this game circled on the schedule. The Rangers come off a blowout loss to Tulare Union 42-7.
The X factor is the Rangers will soon find out that the Mustangs offense is real good. If the Mustangs defense plays good old fashion Mustangs football then the bus ride back to Tulare will be a fun one.
Pag Meter Prediction Tulare Western 39 Redwood 21

Final Tulare Western 14 Redwood 7

The Mustangs defense made the stop on a goal line stand and hang on. It turns out that  Cam Haynes 27 yard fumble return for a TD was the game winner. Tairyn Johnson scored on a 22 yard TD run.  For the Rangers, Drew Stogstill 10 pass from Hector Gonzalez was the only score. 

 

Ridgeview Wolf Pack (1-2) at Central Grizzlies (4-0) 
Pag Meter line Central -44

The Wolf Pack has to play in division 1 and a year to late. The good news for the Pack is the Grizzlies might play vanilla football and maybe a tad flat because next week they the private professional De La Salle Spartans. The over and under for Trent Tompkins TD passes to Jacob Torrez is 2. Take the over.
The X factor will be the Grizzlies could have this game over by halftime.
Pag Meter Prediction Central 54 Ridgeview 12

Final Central 56 Ridgeview 3

Trent Tompkins went 17-23 for 304 yards and 3 TD’s. For the year Trent has thrown for 951 yards with 12 TD’s passes. Jevon Bigelow rushed for 101 yards and scored 3 TD’s and the Grizzlies defense stuffed another team.

Final North 23 Delano 7

East Bakersfield Blades (2-1) at Highland Scots (3-0) 
Pag Meter line Highland -4

A tremendous rivalry with players from each team knowing each other. That’s a RIVALRY!
This game could come down to the final minutes just like last year when the Blades pulled it out 27-21. A match up of speed on both sides of the ball.
The X factor is the East defense and can they slow down the wild offense of Cade Sakamoto and Zeke Arambulo. Both will play QB.
The Blades have QB Junior Lara who will share the football with some good receivers of Nathan Martinez, Jonathan Monroe and Jason Beltran. Can the Scots get a payback win from last year? Should be a good one!!
Pag Meter Prediction Highland 27 East 23

Final Highland 15 East 7

Zeke Arambulo hit a wide open Matthew Miranda for a 34-yard touchdown pass and  Cade Sakamoto scored on a 1 yard TD run. The Blades, Hahkeem Taylor rushed for 131 yards, scored a TD and the Scots defense had 9 sacks.

Pag Meter line Dinuba -7

The Emperors come off a bye and the defense hasn’t given up a point in 8 quarters. The Miners have played a tough schedule and come off a win over Monache 30-13.
The Emperors step up playing El D and can’t look ahead to Tulare Union in 2 weeks. They need to get off to a good start in the 1st half.
The X factor is on the offensive side of the ball and who plays better will win. Can the Miners build off the win over Monache?
Pag Meter Prediction Dinuba 34 El Diamante 27

Final Dinuba 33 El Diamante 30 in overtime

Hanford Bullpups (0-4) vs Porterville Panthers (2-0)

The Bullpups have played a killer schedule and the young Panthers have only played 1 game and that’s a huge disadvantage for the Panthers.
The X factor is the Bullpups should be battle tested on the road.
Pag Meter Prediction Hanford 21 Porterville 14

Final Porterville 8 Hanford 7

Demario Ennis rushed for 110 yards and scored the only Panthers TD and the Panthers defense did the rest. Oscar Esquivel scored the game winning 2 point play.

Final Independence 14 South 0

 

Kennedy Thunderbirds (1-2) at Kerman Lions (3-1) 
Pag Meter line Kerman -15

Both teams have a power running offense and a pretty good defense.

The Lions started the game with a Charlie Castellanos 82 yard kickoff return for a TD.

Sierra Pacific Golden Bears (1-3) vs Hanford West Huskies (3-1) 
Pag Meter line Hanford West -18

The Hanford battle of who is the best team in town. Of course the Bullpups will have something to say about that. The Huskies have improved a bunch from last year with plenty of speed in the backfield with Ellis Howard and Jayron Jenkins. The Golden Bears are not the same as last year but will have junior QB Will Springer and senior RB Phillips Jackson. Will’s wide receivers are the Littlejohn boys of juniors Deshaun and Jayson.

So far the Pag Meter streaky team award goes to the Mustangs. Every year the Pag Meter picks a team wrong and this year it is so far the Mustangs. Just when I think the Mustangs will win, they don’t show up then when I think they have no chance they prove me wrong. What will happen this week? The Tigers so far get the Heart award. Last week they played McFarland on Tuesday and then played division 3 and 3200 plus students, Fresno High on Friday. WOW!!! The Mustangs should win at home but who really knows.

Pag Meter line Frontier -16

Bakersfield Drillers (1-2) at Chaminade Eagles (3-1) 
Pag Meter line Chaminade -20

Will the real Drillers team please stand up. 2 weeks ago they got smoked so they have had time to figure it out. The only problem is they now play a very good private professional High school.
Can the Drillers defense play better? The Drillers defense is all or nothing. The Drillers offense need to go off.
Pag Meter Prediction Chaminade 47 Bakersfield 27

Have the Coyotes arrived after winning 2 straight and beating Hanford on the road?
The Bears are always good and if the Coyotes want to win at home they need to play 48 minutes of Coyotes football. Can the Coyotes offense go off this week? They will need to if they want to have a fun Friday night. The Bears have red hot RB Andre Barnett who rushed for 154 yards and scored 3 touchdowns, including an 89-yard touchdown run. He also caught 3 passes for 70 yards as he accounted for 224 yards of total offense in Merced’s 41-27 win over McNair.
