Thursday Night Football

Madera Coyotes (6-6) vs Tulare Western Mustangs (10-1)
Pag Meter Line Tulare Western– 20
Madera comes in after beating Mt Whitney in a real shootout 76-62. Coyotes QB Colt Nelson went 21-33 for 412 yards and 5 TD passes. Joseph Saldivar rushed for 276 yards and scored a TD. K’Veon Jones caught 7 passes for 170 yards and 2 TD’s. Sophomore kicker Brisa Meza set a section record, she made the most conversions in one game by making 10 out of 11 for a female player.
Tulare Western comes off a bye and has had to sit and think about the Bell loss to Tulare Union 62-41. 2 weeks is a long time. The Mustangs can’t wait to get back on the field.
Senior leader David Alcantar comes in and dangerous at running back/wide receiver rushing for 1,310 yards scored 23 TD’s, caught 40 passes , scored 5 TD’s.
Sophomore QB Elijah Burrell has run the offense like a senior, throwing for 1,924 yards with 19 TD passes. I love how Elijah carries out his fakes and throws well on the run.
Junior wide receiver Keshon Butler is so good after the catch.
The X factor is the Coyotes defense because if they don’t play a great game then the Mustangs will run them out of Bob Mathias Stadium. The Coyotes offense is very good with QB Colt Nelson who has thrown for 3,390 yards and 30 TD passes. If the Coyotes win, it will have to be in a shootout. If the Coyotes can run the ball with Joseph Saldivar then the Coyotes can hang.
Pag Meter Prediction Tulare Western 55 Madera 35

The Pag Meter almost nailed the score…..AT HALFTIME!! Halftime score was 59-35. WOW!
Tulare Western and Madera combined for 1,156 yards of total offense and 114 points scored.

Friday Night Lights


Bullard Knights (6-6) at Central Grizzlies (10–1)
Pag Meter line Central -21
Rematch from week 1 when the Grizzlies beat the Knights 44-0
The Knights are a much different football team from week 1. The Knights defense is much better but so are the Central Grizzlies offense and defense.
Bullard comes off a win over Sanger 21-14. The Apaches had a 14-0 lead and also fumbled late in the 1st half on the goal line. With the score tied 14-14 and 34 seconds to go, Knights QB Kalei Acfalle, hit Josh Kelly, with a 15 yard TD pass and the game winner. Acfalle threw 2 more TD passes. (Kelly, 20 yards and Kai Sunamoto, 5 yards) Marcus Fulcher, rushed for 113 yards and for the year Fulcher has rushed for 1,756 yards and has scored 18 TD’s.
The Grizzlies come off a bye.
The X factor is Grizzlies QB Trent Tompkins….if Trent is on….game over. The Knights will play better but just won’t have enough against the Grizzlies machine. If the Knights can run the ball with Fulcher, that will keep Tompkins on the sideline.
Pag Meter Prediction Central 42 Bullard 21
The Grizzlies defense stuffed the young Knights offense all night long. QB Trent Tompkins went 24-32 for for 173 yards a TD pass. Jevon Bigelow rushed for 185 yards and scored 3 TD’s.

Bakersfield Drillers (6-5) at Liberty Patriots (6-5)
Pag Meter line Liberty -7
Rematch from week 11 when the Patriots beat the Drillers 27-24
The Drillers are just like the Edison Tigers in that they should win but you never know what kind of team will show up.
This game will come down to what coaching staff comes up with the best game plan. Both staffs of Paul Golla and Bryan Nixon have had 2 weeks to prepare and you know they have watched the game film a bunch of times from 2 weeks ago.
The X factor is what defense can make the best adjustments?
There are no secrets in this one on what the offense wants to do.
To me it comes down to the defending valley champion Bakersfield Drillers and can they find the magic like last year?? If they can play without turnovers and silly penalties then they will be traveling to play in a rematch at Central. If not then Liberty is on the bus to Central.
Pag Meter Prediction (Mini upset) Bakersfield 30 Liberty 28
The Pag Meter nailed the mini upset pick and watch out for the Drillers because they are playing great football at the right time. Caden Ochoa is the leader that the Drillers need at QB and he had a night rushing for 200 yards, scored 3 touchdowns and threw 2 TD’s (Justin McGill, 32-yards and Tahj Wright, 10 yards)

Clovis Cougars (7-5) vs Clovis West (9-2)
Pag Meter line Clovis West -21
Rematch from week 11 when the Golden Eagles beat Cougars 45-21
The Cougars with a big win over Ridgeview 49-39. QB Payton Mayer set a school record with 7 TD passes. Bubba Byrd had 5 receptions for a career high 218 yards and 2 touchdowns. Christian Loera had a night on defense with 4 interceptions and now with 11 INT’s on the year and a new school record that has been standing for 47 years.
Clovis West comes off a bye.
The X factor is the Golden Eagles defense and I guarantee that they will be a lot smarter than Ridgeview and not run a man to man defense with a cover zero against Payton Mayer. Horrible idea!
There is good news and bad news for the Cougars…The good is Cole Roberts will try to give it a go. He has been out with a leg injury. The Cougars need to run the football.
The Bad news is the Cougars best receiver Bubba Byrd is out and will not play with a injury he suffered against Ridgeview.
Football is all about matchups and the Cougars defense just doesn’t match up with the Clovis West speedy offense
If Clovis can’t run the ball then they are in deep trouble.
Pag Meter Prediction Clovis West 41 Clovis 20
Football is all about about match ups and Clovis just can’t match up with Clovis West.
Rodney Wright got loose and scored 3 TD with a 84 yard run and caught 2 TD passes. Dante Chachere went 24-36 threw for 307 yards and 3 TD passes. ( Ricardo Arias, 10 and 2 yards, Rodney Wright 65 yards) Ricardo Arias with 12 receptions for 137 yards and 2 TD’s. 


Edison Tigers (7-5) vs Buchanan Bears (9-2)
Pag Meter line Buchanan -7
Broadcasted on 940 ESPN Radio following the Fresno State Basketball game.
The Tigers and the Bears (and Central) have the best defenses in the valley.
Both of these teams are so similar with a good running game and a struggling passing game. Both teams have the potential to throw the ball and are streaky.
The Bears have the edge on offense with the outstanding Bears offensive line, running backs senior Trevor Ervin and sophomore Kendall Milton. Trevor has to be the Bears MYP.
The Tigers have running backs Mckinley Lee (1,141 rushing yards, 11 TD’s), senior Taylin
Green and a big offensive line that has played good and bad all year.
The X factor and it’s every week is the Tigers QB play. Senior Steve Stephens is really dangerous running the semi wildcat but will struggle with the passing attack. Sophomore Jameson Silva is still not ready to take over and the Tigers are thinking about freshman star 6’4 Trey Jefferson.
If the Tigers had a true QB with this team…..Valley Champions but they don’t.
The Tigers come in beating Clovis North 20-13 and played horrible and should have lost.
The Bears come off a bye.
One thing I have learned about the Tigers is never go by what they looked like the week before good or bad and last week was baaaaad!
The other X factor is the Westside King and legend coach Tony Perry died on Saturday so how will the players play?
On paper the Bears win by 2 touchdowns but the Tigers are not your normal team. Last year the Tigers almost pulled off the shocker in the playoff game at Central. Will the Tigers come out and play Tigers football? One thing about it, we will all know early if the Tigers show up. That means will the Tigers come up with stupid penalties? They lead the world with personal fouls.
Can the Bears run on the Tigers defense??? If the Bears can run on the Central Grizzlies defense, they can sure run on the Tigers defense. This could be a low scoring game.
If the Tigers don’t play great for Tony Perry then this Tigers team might get the underachieving team of the year award.
Pag Meter Prediction (UPSET) Edison 19 Buchanan 17
The Pag Meter really blew this upset pick. The Bears flat out beat up the Tigers and the Tigers played like it was the first scrimmage. (UNPREPARED)
The Bears offensive line is so good and it controlled the game along with the Bears defense.Trevor Ervin and Kendall Milton (scored 3 TD’s, 6, 3 and 10 yards) ran the ball behind the big boys upfront and did a great job. Levi Williams ran back a 60 yard TD on a kickoff return to make the score 9-0 and the game was pretty much over in the 1st quarter. 
Both teams couldn’t throw the football at all but when you have the Bears defense and offensive line….game over.

El Diamante Miners (8-4) at Dinuba Emperors (11-1)
Pag Meter line Dinuba -3
Rematch from week 4 when the Emperors beat the Miners 33-30 in overtime
This has the makings of another great ending. These two teams are so even.
The Miners come in red hot winning the WYL and the Emperors come in winning the CSL.
This is a battle of two teams that will pound the football.
The Miners have senior running back Devontae Freeman and the Emperors have senior running backs Alek Marroquin and Lucas Tuttle. Both offensive lines are playing at a high level.
The X factor will be the defensive side of the ball and who can win the battle at the line of scrimmage.
The Emperors can throw the ball with sophomore Josh Magana, who threw for 180 yards and a TD in the win over Lemoore 35-27.
The Miners have junior QB Parker Boswell who led the Miners over Redwood 16-7.
This game could come down to the final play.
The Emperors have the edge on offense and the Miners have the edge on defense.
Pag Meter Prediction Dinuba 26 El Diamante 23
The Emperors defense played outstanding holding the Miners to 98 rushing yards. The Emperors rushed for 232 yards on 49 carries. Alek Marroquin had a game-high 129 yards and scored on a 3 yard TD run. Josh Magana threw 2 TD passes and both to Nathan Carrion. Miners QB Parker Boswell scored on a 1 yard TD run


Garces Rams (5-7) at Tulare Union Tribe (12-0)
Pag Meter line Tulare Union -14
This has turned into a very interesting game.
The Rams have played the much tougher schedule and have red hot Isaiah Martin who is the Rams all-time leading rusher now with 1,474 rushing yards and has scored 15 touchdowns.
The Rams come in beating Frontier 30-22. Rams kicker Peter Delis nailed 3 field goals (36, 37 and 37 yards). Isaiah Martin rushed for 160 yards on 28 carries.
Tulare Union beat up Sunnyside 61-26. Apparently the Wildcats didn’t get the memo that wide receiver Emoryie Edwards and Bryson Allen were out and Tulare Union couldn’t throw the football and maybe you might want to focus on Kaz!!! It was a horrible Wildcats game plan and Kazmeir Allen went off rushing for his personal best 434 yards and scored 8 TD’s. 63 TD’s for the year and 1 TD away from breaking the state record. 63 TD’s is a new section record, 113 career touchdowns is 4th best and 5,486 career rushing yards.
With the best WR in valley history Edwards, out for the year with a broken collarbone and you can add to the list the Tribe’s best linebacker Brian Gomes who is out with ruptured spleen.
That being said, I’m thinking Rams coaching staff with AJ Gass will have a game plan to focus on Kaz. Tulare Union will have a zero passing game so if Kaz goes off again then put him in as the greatest. If not then the Sunnyside Wildcats were clueless. Stay tuned.
The X factor is the Rams offense should have a night so can the Rams defense step up?
I would not be surprised if we hear that the Rams win in a close game or it’s a Tribe blowout.
Martin and Kaz could have big games.
Pag Meter Prediction Tulare Union 55 Garces 49
If the Tribe plays defense like this then they will be state champions.
Kazmeir Allen is now the TOUCHDOWN King California. Allen scored his 64th, 65th and 66th touchdowns and moved ahead of former Ventura’s Tyler Ebell, who scored 64 touchdowns in 2000. Allen rushed for 192 yards on 22 carries, extending his season rushing total to 2,738 yards. Nate Lamb went 10-15-for 265 yards and scored a TD.

Kingsburg Vikings (7-5) at Bakersfield Christian Eagles (10-1)
Pag Meter -19
The Eagles haven’t played a real game since beating Shafter on Oct 13th and the Vikings have yet to win a big game.
The Vikings come in beating Chowchilla 20-14 and the Eagles had a bye.
The X factor is the Vikings defense going against Braden Wingle who has thrown for 2,464 yards and the Eagles offense.
The Vikings will lead with running back Bo Jackson who has rushed for 1,337 rushing yards and has scored 18 TD’s.
The bottom line is the defending champion Eagles have too much offense and team speed for the Vikings.
Pag Meter Prediction Bakersfield Christian 39 Kingsburg 20
The Eagles got down 9-0 and that’s what happens when you have not played in a real game for a month and then the Eagles blew away the Vikings.
Braden Wingle threw for 227 yards and 2 touchdown passes. Donte Harris rushed for 90 yards and scored 3 touchdowns.

West Vikings (6-5) at Memorial Panthers (9-2)
Pag Meter line Memorial -19
This is a game of the Vikings Wing T offense vs the Panthers wide open attack with so many weapons.
The Vikings coming in beating Highland 42-35 in overtime. The Pag Meter picked the Vikings because the Vikings athletes. Donta Mason had a night on both sides of the ball scoring 3 touchdowns and picking off 3 passes.
The Panthers had a bye and come in with the Mojo after beating Sanger in week 11.
SJM has junior QB Alec Trujillo who has thrown for 2,670 passing yards, and 27 TD passes. Sophomore WR Jalen McMillan suffered a concussion in week 10 vs Bullard and should be back this week. RB Leonard Glass has rushed for 1,174 rush yards, and has scored 17 TD’s.
The X factor is SJM is all about their offense and the defense takes a back seat but if the Panthers can beat the Sanger Apaches at Chuck Shidan field then I’m thinking the Vikings are in trouble.
The Vikings HAVE to control the clock with LONG drives to keep this thing close.
Pag Meter Prediction Memorial 46 West 27
QB Alec Trujillo went 8-12 for 243 yards passing and 3 TD’s. WR Jalen McMillan caught 4 passes for 103 yards and scored 2 TD’s. Mac Dalena caught 2 passes for 100 yards and scored on a 50 yard TD pass. RB Justice Palms rushed for 109 yards and scored a TD.


Fresno High Warriors (6-6) at Tehachapi Warriors (7-5)
Pag Meter line Tehachapi -13
Fresno High got a big win at Independence on the road 26-22. And after looking at the game film, Fresno High was the better team.
Tehachapi comes in beating up South 34-8
The X factor is the Fresno High speed vs the Warriors ground attack.
This is a very even game and if Fresno High can play a clean game with zero turnovers then the bus ride home will be fun. Can Fresno High slow down the Tehachapi run game?
Pag Meter Prediction (Upset special) Fresno High 27 Tehachapi 24
Fresno High played well enough to win and should have but had too many turnovers. Fresno High’s QB John L’heureux II scored on a 53 yard TD run to make the score 14-14. Tehachapi running back Hayden Palmer scored the game winning TD.


Delano Tigers (6-5) at Central Valley Christian Cavaliers (9-2)
Pag Meter line CVC -9
The Tigers are red hot and the Cavaliers come in with a 2 game losing streak. CVC has fumbled about 10 times the last 2 games.
The Tigers last week beat Wasco 41-7. QB Ramon Ortega leads the way along with the hot Tigers defense.
CVC has senior quarterback J.J. Lino who has thrown for 1,914 yards passing and 25 TD passes. Sophomore running back Jaalen Rening has rushed for 1,085 yards and has scored , 11 total TD’s. Senior receiver Gavin Salierno has 57 catches, 943 yards receiving, and has scored 12 TD’s. the Cavaliers are averaging 33 points per game and Delano is averaging 36 points a game.
The X factor is CVC offense and if they continue to fumble then the Tigers win.
Pag Meter Prediction CVC 36 Delano 27
When the Cavaliers don’t turn the ball over they are dangerous.
JJ Lino threw 3 TD passes (Gavin Salierno, 9, 1 yards, and Simon Tevelde, 24 yards) Eric Dragt scored on a 2-yard touchdown run! Jaalen Rening scored 2 TD’s on runs of 15 and 55 yards.

Roosevelt Rough Riders (8-4) at Golden West Trailblazers (9-2)
Pag Meter Golden West-14
The Riders come in beating up Exeter 46-13 and the Blazers come in on a bye.
Roosevelt has the offense to hang so the X factor is the Riders defense and are they ready for a physical game up front? It’s that simple.
Can the Riders coaching staff coach up the defense?
Golden West is trying to finish the race and win a section championship. Last year they were a top seed but didn’t finish.
The Blazers have senior Gonzalo Rodriguez who has rushed for 1,306 yards rushing, scored 20 TDs and is the Visalia’s all-time career leader in yards rushing.
The Rough Riders will lead with junior QB Jordan De La Rosa and Jordan has to go off for the Riders to win.
Pag Meter Prediction Golden West 35 Roosevelt 21
Golden West, Gonzalo Rodriguez rushed for 156 yards and scored 3 TD’s, Ben Davis rushed for 154 yards and scored a TD. Payton Allen hit Josiah Washington on a huge 59-yard TD pass.
Riders QB Jordan De La Rosa threw for 359 and 5TD passes but the Riders defense got beat up.

Monache Marauders (4-7) at Kerman Lions (10-1)
Pag Meter line Kerman-12
The Marauders come in beating up Liberty 50-28. The outstanding Monache coaching staff did a great job in the road win. The Marauders spread, no-huddle, up-tempo offense played a great game. Marauders QB Antonio Andrade, went 15-27 for 266 yards and 4 TD passes. RB Aidan Galvan, rushed for 122 yards and scored 2 TD’s.
Now Monache has to face the most dangerous team in division 4 and Sean Chambers.
If you really look at the Lions offense, it might be impossible to stop. If you try to stop the run and load the box then Chambers will pick you apart. You drop back in coverage then Chambers and RB Chris Acosta will run you over.
Chambers has thrown for 1,333 yards with 11 TD passes and has rushed for 1,314 yards and has scored 16 TD’s. Acosta has rushed for 1,080 yards and has scored 11 TD’s.
The X factor is if the Marauders pull the shocker it might be in a shootout.
Which defense will play better?
Monache has played a much tougher schedule and that could help. Both teams are playing their best football coming in.
Pag Meter Prediction Kerman 40 Monache 28
If the Lions could catch a pass this game would been much different.
Sean Chambers rushed for 200 yards and scored 3 TD’s. Chris Acosta rushed for 275 yards and scored 2 TD’s.


North Stars (9-3) at Selma Bears (8-3)
Pag Meter line Selma -17
The defending champion Bears are at it again.
The Stars come in beating East 21-14. Bailey West scored on a 23-yard touchdown run late in the 4th quarter and the game winner.
The X factor is RB Tiveon Stroud is back for the Bears and he will make a huge difference with the Bears running game. This changes everything and the Bears are now in the position to be the favorites to repeat. Can the Stars defense going against Junior Ramirez and the Bears offense slow them down?
The Bears defense is a tad better than the Stars defense. The difference in this game is the Bears have Junior Ramirez and now Stroud and have played a tougher schedule.
Bailey has to play out of his shoes to beat Selma.
Pag Meter Prediction Selma 37 North 20
For the 2nd straight year the Bears go for 2 points and the win and come up short. Last year was in the state playoff game against Bakersfield Christian. With 2 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter, the Stars Bailey West hit Victor Boggs Jr on a 23 yard TD pass and the tie to head into overtime. In overtime, North struck first with a 2-yard touchdown run by Connor Whitbey. Junior Ramirez scored on a 1 yard TD run for the Bears in OT but missed the the 2 pointer.

Kennedy Thunderbirds (6-6) at Caruthers Blue Raiders (10-0)
Pag Meter line Caruthers -23
This is the power running game of the Thunderbirds vs the Blue Raiders who can run a bunch of different formations.
Kennedy comes in after beating Fowler 59-40. Tyreak Walker, rushed for 209 yards and scored 4 touchdowns.
Caruthers had a bye.
The Thunderbirds will lead with Tyreak Walker who has rushed for 1,184 rushing yards and has scored 10 touchdowns.

Pag Meter Prediction Caruthers 44 Kennedy 21
Blue Raiders Imanol Arrendondo rushed for yards and scored 3 TD’s. Chris Puga rushed for 89 yards and scored a TD.


Coalinga Horned Toads (7-5) at Firebaugh Eagles (9-2)
Pag Meter line Firebaugh -3
Rematch from Week 11 when the Eagles beat the Toads 26-19
This is the big rematch and in the first meeting you have to give big credit to the Eagles defense because it was their best game of the year.
The Horned Toads come in after beating Lindsay 41-7. Eric Saldana rushed 138 yards and scored 2 TD’s. Mike Cerda rushed for 89 yards and scored 2 TD’s.
The Toads will lead with running game with Saldana and Cerda and very good offensive line.

The X factor is the Eagles have the better offense and the Toads have the better defense. This game will come down to the other side of the ball when the Toads offense battles the Eagles defense.
This will be another hard hitting game.
Pag Meter Prediction Firebaugh 29 Coalinga 26
The Eagles took care of business and played their best defensive game of the year!
QB Jeshua Gutierrez threw for 176 yards and 2 TD passes. Hunter Hogue rushed for 124 yards and scored 2 TD’s.


Immanuel Eagles (4-6) at Yosemite Badgers (9-0)
Pag Meter line Yosemite -2
Both teams come off a bye.
The Eagles will still be sky high after beating CVC in week 11 and the Badgers are trying to be recognized and saying hey…..we are a good team at 8-0.
The Eagles have played a much tougher schedule so don’t look at the Eagles record.
Yosemite will lead with RB Nic Harper, WR, Cannon Eames, QB Tyson Mansfield. RB Austen Burgeno, and RB Ernie Jimenez.
The Eagles lead with senior QB Adam Simonian, and RB/WR junior Chris Gurrola.
The X factor is the defensive side of the ball.
The Badgers come in with a chip on their shoulder because they want to show the valley that they are a good football team.
Pag Meter Prediction Yosemite 27 Immanuel 25
Badger sophomore running back Nicholas Harper rushed for 89 yards and scored 3 touchdowns and now rushed for 1,092 yards. Senior Cannon Eames (4 receptions – 128 yards) scored on a 64-yard pass from junior quarterback Tyson Mansfield (6-10, 168 yards), cornerback Kevin Cruz returned an interception 45 yards for a TD and senior Austen Burgeno (102 rushing yards) scored on a 10 yard TD run.

Hanford West Huskies (4-8) at Shafter Generals (9-2)
Pag Meter line Shafter -9
You can’t look at the Huskies record because they have played a million times tougher schedule than the Generals. The Huskies have plenty of team speed but the problem could be the Huskies might not know how to win. When you play a schedule against so many powerhouses, you get the mindset of just showing up and expect to lose.
The Huskies come in beating Bishop Union 24-21. The Huskies fell behind 14-0 early on, the Huskies scored 24 unanswered points then held on to beat Bishop Union. Jayron Jenkins led the way for the Huskies, rushing for 147 yards on 12 carries and scored 2 touchdowns.
The Generals have the very dangerous QB with junior Alex Aguilar who has thrown for 2,581 yards with 27 TD passes and has rushed 1,170 yards and has scored 19 TD’s.
The Huskies will have sophomore QB Ethan Natera (1,820, yards, 17 TD passes) and Junior RB Jayron Jenkins (931 rushing yards, 7 TD scored)
The X factor is the Huskies defense vs the Aguilar.
If the Huskies can forget about the ugly record and just play football then this game could be real good.
Pag Meter Prediction Shafter 30 Hanford West 21
The Generals are playing outstanding at the right time. QB Alex Aguilar had 327 total yards (177 rushing, 150 passing) and 5 touchdowns (3 rushing, 2 passing.) Marco Rodriguez caught 5 passes for 86 yards and scored 2 TD’s.

Riverdale Cowboys (9-3) at Rosamond Roadrunners (11-1)
Pag Meter line Rosamond -10
This might just be the most interesting game of the night.
It’s the power Cowboy offense vs the spread attack of the Roadrunners. Most people think the Roadrunners will roll and it might happen but most have not seen the Cowboys play.
The Cowboys can line up against anybody and compete.
The Cowboys are big and physical and leading the way is senior QB 6’3, 225lb Mitch Maggini, running backs, Fernando Zarate, Jo Jo Piceno, and Johnny Solorio.
The Roadrunners have a dangerous QB with Isaiah Escobar who has thrown for 2,111 yards with 26 TD passes and has rushed for 676 yards and has scored 9 TD’s.
The X factor is the Cowboys defense and can they come up with a game plan to contain Escobar?
Pag Meter Prediction (Upset special) Riverdale 36 Rosamond 35
The Cowboys came in the game beat up and got beat up even more during the game and still could have won. If healthy the Cowboys would have been the favorites.
Roadrunners QB Isaiah Escobar scored on a 50 yard TD run and threw 3 TD passes, of 24, 87, and 6 yards to Mario Aparicio.
For the Cowboys, top running back Johnny Solorio didn’t play with a broken collarbone he suffered last week. RB, JP Sanchez also didn’t play with an injury.
This game, outstanding offensive lineman Efrain Zarate went down with an MCL injury. QB Mitch Maggini dislocated his shoulder early on and went out. Running back Fernando Zarate went out with a knee injury. UNBELIEVABLE and still scored 28 points


Orosi Cardinals (8-4) at Strathmore Spartans (12-0)
Pag Meter line Strathmore -14
Rematch from week 4 when the Spartans beat the Cardinals 35-13
The Cardinals are a much better team heading into this game.
The Cardinals will lead with red hot RB Jerry Huerta, who rushed for 190 yards and scored 3 TD’s in the win over Granite Hills 21-14. Huerta is the first Orosi player to rush for more than 2,000 yards and now has rushed for 2,002 yards and has scored 29 TDs.
The defending champion Spartans have senior running back Joseph Garcia, who has rushed for 1,770 yards rushing and has scored 31 TD’s.
The X factor is can the Cardinals come in and not be intimidated playing the Strathmore Spartans? They can win this game if they play their game!!
Pag Meter Prediction Strathmore 37 Orosi 23
Joseph Garcia scored 2 TD’s with runs of 10 and 27 yards. Nick Salas hits Amando Rodriguez Alonso Acevedo rushed for 102 yards and scored a touchdown on 6 carries. QB Nick Salas went 7-of-9 for 113 yards and hit Amando Rodriguez on a 20 yard TD pass.
