PAG METER WEEK 8 FINAL SCORES
Thursday Night Football Finals
Porterville Panthers (3-3) (1-1) vs Tulare Western Mustangs (7-0) (2-0)
at Tulare Union 7:30pm
Pag Meter line Tulare Western -41
The Mustangs are rolling on both sides of the ball.
The X factor is the Panthers defense and can they slow down red hot David Alcantar? This year Alcantar has scored 16 TD’s. The Mustangs defense needs to get more credit. They have given up only 49 points in 6 games.
Pag Meter prediction Tulare Western 48 Porterville 7
Final Tulare Western 51 Porterville 0
The Mustangs are 2-0 in the EYL and 2 straight shutouts. The Mustangs finished with 599 yards of total offense. David Alcantar was the leading figure again for the Mustang offense.

He had scored on TD runs of 63 and 27 yards.
Sunnyside Wildcats (4-3) (2-0) at McLane Highlanders (0-7) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Sunnyside -45
The X factor the Wildcats defense will shut down the Highlanders. The Wildcats are in the driver’s seat to winning the NYL. This is the time of the year to get on a hot streak that rolls into the division 2 playoffs.
Pag Meter prediction Sunnyside 51 McLane 6
Final Sunnyside 58 McLane 8
Hanford West Huskies (3-5) (0-4) vs El Diamante Miners (4-3) (3-0)
Pag Meter line El Diamante -31
The Miners come off a bye and starting to play great on both sides of the ball.
The X factor is the Huskies front 7 has their hands full. Miners senior running back Devontae Freeman is on fire averaging 170 yards per game the last 3 games.
Pag Meter prediction El Diamante 44 Hanford West 13
Final El Diamante 54 Hanford West 13
Devontae Freeman rushed for 142 yards on 16 carries and scored 2 TD’s. Junior QB Parker Boswell went 4-of-5 passes for 88 yards and threw 2 TD passes each to Jared Torres and Jake Garbani. Jake also scored on an 12 yard TD run.
Friday Night Lights Finals
Bullard Knights (3-4)(2-0) at Madera Coyotes (4-3) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Bullard -14
It’s the old coach (Don Arax) vs the new coach (Yosef Fares) who coached together for a long time.
The Knights come off a big win over Sanger 27-6 and the Coyotes lost to Edison 43-14.
This is the Knights power running game with Marcus Fulcher vs the Coyotes passing game with QB Colt Nelson. For the year Fulcher has rushed for 847 and scored 9 TD’s. Nelson has thrown for over 1,767 yards with 15 TD’s.
The X factor is the Coyotes defense and can they slow down the Knights running game?
Last year the Knights won 42-7 but this year the Coyotes are million times better.
The Key will be the 3rd quarter. Who can come out after halftime with a fast start?
Pag Meter prediction Bullard 41 Madera 27
— PAG METER (@PAGMETER) October 7, 2017
Final Bullard 42 Madera 20
Marcus Fulcher rushed for 251 yards and scored 3 TD’s. QB Kalei Acfalle went 11-16 for 119 yards and 1 TD pass.
Edison Tigers (4-3) (2-0) at Memorial Panthers (6-1) (1-1)
Pag Meter line Edison -11
940 ESPN Radio Game of the week
The Battle of big Cats!
Wow what a huge match up with the best defense (Tigers) vs the hottest offense in the valley (Panthers).
The X factor can the Panthers offense handle the man to man in your face defense? Ask Madera how that worked out last week. The Tigers crushed the Coyotes outstanding passing attack 43-14. The Panthers beat up Madera South 62-6.
Memorial has never beaten the Edison Tigers in school history so is this year it happens? The other big X factor is the Panthers defense matching up with the new and improved Tigers offense. The Tigers offense is so much better than the Panthers defense. Panthers QB Alec Trujillo has thrown for 1,781 yards with 22 TD passes but this week he will have to throw quicker passes because the Tigers pressure is coming and coming hard. Tigers QB is sophomore Jameson Silva and he is getting better and better. Can the big Memorial offensive line handle the big Tigers defensive line? Stay tuned. The Panthers defense has to play their best game in 5 years to win the first game ever over Edison.

Final Edison 41 Memorial 27
Mckinley Lee had another big game rushing for over 200 yards and scored 2 TD’s. Taylin Green also went over 100 yards and scored 2 TD’s.
Madera South Stallions (1-6) (0-2) at Sanger Apaches (6-1) (1-1)
Pag Meter line Sanger -41
The X factor the Stallions offense can’t keep up with the Apaches. The Apaches are so dangerous when Jalen Cropper is at QB. The Stallions have to focus on Cropper because Cropper loves to keep the ball. Look for Mathew Poptat Manoz to take over at QB for Madera South and he has the potential to be electric. The Stallions have a zero offense and has to play in the very tough CMAC.
Pag Meter prediction Sanger 54 Madera 13
Final Sanger 40 Madera South 3
Jalen Cropper played his first full game at QB and he was outstanding going 9-10 for 149 yards and 2 TD passes. (Josiah Lopez, 20 yards and Morice Norris 13 yards) Alex Saefong started off the game when he took back the opening kickoff for an 85 yard TD and he also scored on a 1 yard TD run. Bli Kulow scored on a 23 yard TD run.
Clovis West Golden Eagles (6-1) (2-0) at Buchanan Bears (5-2) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Clovis West -3
The battle of the Clovis West offense vs the Bears defense.
Don’t forget the other side of the ball with the Clovis West defense & the Schramm boys vs Trevor Ervin, Kendall Melton and the outstanding offensive line of the Bears.
Will the Bears go with Clovis North transfer at QB Carson Bailey? Stay tuned on that. As of now the Bears have a zero passing game. It’s amazing that the Bears offensive line did such a great job against the Grizzlies defense without the passing game.
The X factor, the Bears and can they run on the Golden Eagles defense without passing the football? CW QB Dante Chachere has been so good at making great decisions and the offense is so dangerous.
This should be a very good game but I can’t see the Bears winning the big games without a chance of completing a pass.
Pag Meter prediction Clovis West 27 Buchanan 24
Central vs Buchanan
Trevor Ervin's 27 yard TD.
Bears had 10 players.

— PAG METER (@PAGMETER) October 9, 2017
Final Clovis West 36 Buchanan 17
The Golden Eagles defense shut down the Bears in the 2nd half after trailing 14-3 at the half. CW QB Dante Chachere has now thrown for 1,848 yards with 15 TD passes. CW kicker Eli Riofrio moved into the 5th spot in section history by making two field goals and now has 23 for his career. Riofrio leads the section with 9 field goals for the season and has made 31 of 33 PAT’s.
Clovis North Broncos (2-5) (1-1) vs Clovis East T Wolves (0-7) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Clovis North -6
This is a big game for both teams because it might be the only game both teams might win again this year.
The X factor is the T Wolves and will this be the year the T Wolves win their first TRAC game in 8 years? The T Wolves haven’t won a TRAC game since Oct 16, 2009 when they beat Clovis. 42 straight losses. Is the pressure on the Clovis North Broncos?
Pag Meter prediction Clovis Broncos 20 Clovis East 13
Final Clovis North 21 Clovis East 7
The T Wolves losing TRAC streak is now at 43
Garces Rams (2-5) (2-0) at Centennial Golden Hawks (2-5) (1-2)
Pag Meter line Centennial-7
Both teams come in after getting big wins.
The X factor is the Golden Hawks defense and can they have another good game. The Rams are young and so well coached. Can the Rams defense slow down QB Will Alexander? The Rams have sophomore QB Joseph Campbell who is going to be so good.
Pag Meter prediction Centennial 37 Garces 30
— Hometown Sports (@HometownBAK) October 9, 2017
Final Garces 28 Centennial 21
Nick Sill returned a fumble 50 yards for the go-ahead touchdown for Garces with just over three minutes remaining. Rams, Isaiah Martin carried the ball 22 times for 121 yards and scored 2 TD’s. Centennial quarterback Will Alexander finished 26-36 passing for 350 yards and a touchdown. Alexander also had a 1-yard touchdown run.
Bakersfield Drillers (3-4) (1-1) at Frontier Titans (5-2) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Bakersfield -3
Who would have thought that one of these teams would be 0-2 in the SWYL? It’s going to happen. Can the Drillers clean up their act on and off the field? This team reminds me of 2 years ago when the Drillers fell apart right about this time. The Drillers have way too much talent for that to happen. The Titans found out last week that the SWYL is tough. Can the Titans running attack of Tye Johnson and J.J. Flores along with the offensive line control this game?
The X factor is the Drillers playing together as a team.
Pag Meter prediction Bakersfield 33 Frontier 30
Final Bakersfield 26 Frontier 14
Tahj Wright rushed for 145 yards, scored on a 53 yard TD runs and caught a 71 yard TD pass from Jacob Maran. Maran also hit Isaiah Jernagin on a 29 yard TD pass.
Stockdale Mustangs (2-5) (0-2) at Liberty Patriots (3-4) (2-0)
Pag Meter line Liberty-18
The X factor is the Patriots will get better when the weather gets colder and it is getting colder. It’s Sammy Stewart time.
Pag Meter prediction Liberty 34 Stockdale 16
Final Liberty 33 Stockdale 22
Sammy Stewart rushed for 120 yards and scored 3 TD’s.
Selma Bears (5-2) (0-2) at Dinuba Emperors (6-1) )(2-0)
Pag Meter line Dinuba -25
The Bears are 5-1 and overall not a great team but are 5-1 because they have Mr. dangerous Junior Ramirez. The Bears will get the ball into the hands of Junior anyway they can.
This week the big problem for the Bears will be they will struggle running the football and they are playing the best team they will play at year long vs the Dinuba Emperors.
The X factor is the Bears are a winning machine but Dinuba is a much better team right now and will roll. Dinuba is the best team in the Central Sequoia!
Pag Meter prediction Dinuba 45 Selma 20
Final Dinuba 35 Selma 10
Pag Meter nailed the point spread. QB Josh Magana went 11-17 for 168 yards and 1 TD pass.
Exeter Monarchs (5-2) (1-1) vs Immanuel Eagles (3-3) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Immanuel -5
This is a great match up and both teams need a win in the tough Central Sequoia.
The X factor is the Monarchs are struggling on both sides of the ball so can they clean up their act? The Eagles are tough at home.
Pag Meter prediction Immanuel 29 Exeter 24
Final Exeter 38 Immanuel 21
The Monarchs got back to pounding the football with a very good offensive line.
Kingsburg Vikings (5-2) (1-1) at Central Valley Christian (7-0) (2-0)
Pag Meter line CVC -7
The CSL game of the week. Both teams come in red hot. Will CVC come in with a hangover after beating Selma. The Caves better bring their A game because the Vikings are good.
The X factor is the CVC defense because the Vikings offense has speed.
Pag Meter prediction (Upset alert) Kingsburg 30 CVC 28
Final CVC 24 Kingsburg 7
The Pag Meter missed this upset pick and big credit goes to the Caves defense. RB Jaalen Rening rushed for 114 yards and scored 2 TD’s. QB JJ Lino went 14-21 for 189 yards and 1 TD pass.
Fresno High Warriors (4-3) (2-0) vs Hoover Patriots (1-6) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Fresno High-27
What happened to the Patriots last week in the 30-0 crushing loss to Reedley? The Pag Meter didn’t see that coming. The Patriots are changing it up at QB and will start Vincent Magic Andrews who transferred in from Washington Union so this should open up the offense with Tahj Hart and Jordan Daniels spreading the field out.
The X factor is the Patriots defense because the Warriors offense is good.
Pag Meter prediction Fresno High 44 Hoover 17
Final Fresno High 46 Hoover 6 (No stats available)
Roosevelt Rough Riders (4-3) (1-1) vs Reedley Pirates(1-6) (1-1)
Pag Meter line Roosevelt -13
The X factor is the Rough Riders defense and can they slow down the new and improved Pirates running game? We are all waiting for the high power offense of the Rough Riders to take off. QB Jordan De La Rosa should soon have a breakout game.

Final Roosevelt 24 Reedley 21 (No stats available)
Hanford Bullpups (1-7) (1-3) at Golden West Trailblazers (6-1) (2-1)

Granite Hills Grizzlies (7-0) (2-0) at Lindsay Cardinals (2-5) (1-1)

The Grizzlies defense with their 5 shutout in 7 games.

Final Strathmore 42 Sierra Pacific 0 (No Stats available)
Woodlake Tigers (3-4) (0-2) at Corcoran Panthers (1-6) (1-1)

The Panthers are slowly getting better and healthy so the X factor is the Panthers offense because one of these games they will go off. The Tigers are very streaky.
Pag Meter prediction Woodlake 32 Corcoran 18
Final Corcoran 23 Woodlake 21
Corcoran finally sealed the deal and got their first win of the season. Woodlake had the lead 21-20 with 30 seconds to go. Panthers kicker Axel Garcia nailed a 30 yard field goal and the game winner. After the KO Return, Woodlake was picked off by Alvie Valdez to close the deal. The Panthers offense controlled the clock behind RB Julian Escalante’s who rushed for 127 yards and scored 2 TD’s.

Final Orosi 38 McFarland 12 (No stats available)
Mission Oak Hawks (0-7) (0-2) vs Monache Marauders (2-4) (1-1)

This should be a real good game and the team that can finish drives with points will win.
The Marauders have lost some close games.
Pag Meter prediction Monache 36 Mission Oak 23
Final Monache 20 Mission Oak 17
QB Antonio Andrade threw a beautiful 79 yard TD pass to Montrece Fields and the game winner.
Delano Tigers (2-4) (0-2) at Tulare Union Tribe (7-0) (2-0)
Pag Meter line Tulare Union-54
The Tribe might just have the most explosive offense in the state. QB Nathan Lamb’s comes in throwing for 1,971 and 22 TD passes. Record breaking WR Emoryie Edwards has caught 46 passes for 1,016 yards and 11 TD paases. RB Kazmeir Allen has rushed for 1,118 yards and has scored a total of 30 TD’s.

Pag Meter prediction Tulare Union 63 Delano 7
Final Tulare Union 56 Delano 10
The Tribe is on a huge record breaking year! Wide receiver Emoryie Edwards became the Central Section’s career leader in receiving yards with 114 yards on the night and adding up to 4,030 in 4 varsity seasons. Edwards already holds the Central Section record for receptions and is 4 touchdowns away from the region’s record in receiving scores. Then there is KAZ! Kazmeir Allen, who tied his own record with 7 touchdowns in one game, a feat he has now achieved 3 times. Allen had 198 rushing yards and 112 receiving yards — 310 total offensive yards. In the third quarter, his 90-yard touchdown reception was called back because of a holding penalty. He responded with a 98-yard reception for a touchdown on the very next play.

Sierra Chieftains (1-6) (0-2) at Liberty Madera Ranchos Hawks (6-1) (1-0)
Pag Meter line Liberty Madera -50
The Hawks have had 2 weeks to think about the loss to North power Patterson. The Hawks won’t play anybody better this year including CVC or Golden West than Patterson who is 5-1. Look for the Roth boys to have a night.
Pag Meter prediction Liberty Madera 56 Sierra 6
Final Liberty Madera 63 Sierra 0
Kaleb Roth rushed for 91 yards and scored 3 TD’s and now has scored 17 TD’s on the year. Wyatt Roth rushed for 112 yards and scored 2 TD’s. Sawyer Howe rushed for 91 yards.
Shafter Generals (5-1) (3-0) at Bakersfield Christian Eagles (7-1) (4-0)
Pag Meter line Bakersfield Christian -21
This is for the South Sequoia league championship.
The X factor is Division 3 should always beat division 5.
Pag Meter prediction Bakersfield Christian 43 Shafter 22
Final Bakersfield Christian 42 Shafter 23
The Eagles pretty much won the South Sequoia by beating Shafter and winning 19 straight SSL games. Watch out division 3, QB Braden Wingle is starting to heat up. Braden threw for 238 yards and 4 touchdown passes. Wingle has now thrown for 6,166 passing yards. Chris Gutierrez caught a 45 yard TD pass and returned a INT for a 31 yard TD. Myran Randle caught a 11 yard TD pass. Wallace caught a 3 yard TD pass.
Kennedy Thunderbirds (2-5) (1-3) at Arvin Bears (1-5) (0-3)

Tehachapi Warriors (2-5) (1-1) at East Bakersfield Blades (3-4) (0-2)
Pag Meter line Tehachapi-3
The X factor is the Warriors have yet to play well on both sides of the ball at the same time. Last week the defense played pretty good losing a heartbreaker to Independence 14-13 in the last seconds. The Blades lost to tough one to West 22-19.
The X factor is which offense will finish drives with touchdowns?
Pag Meter prediction Tehachapi 20 East 17
Final Tehachapi 28 East 7
East led 7-6 at halftime, but the final 2 quarters was all Tehachapi. The Warriors got a 2-yard touchdown run from Chris Garcia, and the ensuing two-point conversion put them ahead 14-7 in the third quarter. Peyton Stowers’ interception-return touchdown put Tehachapi ahead 21-6 in the fourth. Garrett Curry’s 12-yard scoring run later in the final quarter.
North Stars (4-3) (1-1) at Foothill Trojans (0-7) (0-2)

Final Riverdale 55 Minarets 24 (No Stats available)
Avenal Buccaneers (1-6) (0-2) at Tranquillity Tigers (1-6) (1-1)

Mario Berbe with a big game

Mendota Aztecs (3-4) (1-1) at Firebaugh Aztecs (5-2) (2-0)
Pag Meter line Mendota -3
It’s the battle for 33 and it seems every year the Aztecs own the Eagles.
The X factor is the Eagles front 7 and are they physical enough to win the battle at the line of scrimmage. The Eagles should win this game but you never know what Eagles defense will show up.
Pag Meter prediction Mendota 30 Firebaugh 27
Final Firebaugh 40 Mendota 14
Hunter Hogue of Firebaugh rushed for a career high of 223 yards on 21 carries and scored 2 touchdowns
Fowler Redcats (4-3) at Orange Cove Titans (1-6)
Pag Meter line Fowler -28
The Redcats can beat teams below them but will struggle against the better teams.
The X factor is the Redcats defense and if they want to beat Caruthers in the last week, they need to play better defense.
Pag Meter prediction Fowler 48 Orange Cove 20
Final Fowler 23 Orange Cove 7
Gus Rocha scored on a 1 yard TD run.Martin Plata threw 2 TD passes. Chris Silva and Anthony Lopez each caught a TD.
Yosemite Badgers (5-0) at Farmersville Aztecs (2-6)

Pag Meter prediction Cal City 28 McAuliffe 14
Final Cal City 29 McAuliffe 6
Saturday Football Special Final
Central Grizzlies (6-1) (2-0) at Clovis Cougars (5-2) (1-1)
Pag Meter line Central -21
The Grizzlies had to pull out a win over Buchanan 28-27. They didn’t play a good game and they still won. An ugly win is way better than an ugly loss.
The Cougars didn’t play well either in the win over Clovis East 28-14. The Cougars are still beat up with injuries.
The X factor is I’m thinking the Cougars will hold out QB Kurt Mayer and RB Cole Roberts one more week because they are not 100%. The Central speed will be too much for Clovis. The Cougars offense will not have enough this week against the Grizzlies defense.
Look for Trent Tompkins and Jevon Bigelow to have big games.
Pag Meter prediction Central 35 Clovis 14
Final Central 33 Clovis 0
The Grizzlies defense beat up the Cougars offense. QB Trent Tompkins hit Jacob Torrez on a 22 yard TD pass. Diotry Brewer scored on a 3 yard TD run. Jeremiah Hunter caught a 31 yard TD pass from Trent Tompkins. Tre Walker scored on a 1 yard TD run. Javon Bigelow scored on a 27 yard TD run.
