FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS FINALS

7pm KICKOFF (Remember there is no JV Game)

DIVISION 1 PLAYOFFS
Top Bracket
No 9 EDISON TIGERS (6-5) at No 8 RIDGEVIEW WOLF PACK (7-4)
Edison plays at No 1 Central Grizzlies Friday
Pag Meter Line Ridgeview -16
The Tigers come off a horrible loss to Bullard 42-7. The worst loss in the 59 years of the Crosstown Classic series.
The Wolf Pack beat up Independence 48-14. Sophomore RB Sophomore Shawn Allen rushed 169 yards.
The X factor have the wheels fallen off the Tigers wagon? The Wolf Pack can’t beat a team better than them and Edison is better than Ridgeview but this game is different because it sure looks like the Tiger’s might have shut it down last week and now the Tigers have to travel. It’s hard to pick a team like Edison after last week’s performance. If you look at the Tigers schedule they have beaten the non physical teams and got crushed against the physical teams. The Tigers have RB McKinley Lee III and need to pound it.
If the Tigers lead with Lee, they have a chance. The Wolf Packs will lead with Shawn Allen.
Almost every year Edison starts out slow because the lack of administration support but then comes on strong at the end but this year is different.
This game is simple to figure out….If the Tigers want to compete….they win….if not, the Wolf Pack will roll.
Pag Meter Prediction Ridgeview 39 Edison 23

FINAL EDISON 42 RIDGEVIEW 33

 

 

 

 

 

No 12 BULLARD KNIGHTS (5-6) at No 5 ST JOSEPH KNIGHTS (8-3)
Pag Meter Line St Joseph -13
This is the most interesting game of the playoffs.
The Bullard Knights were absolutely a HORRIBLE football team all the way through Week 7 when they got crushed against Memorial 62-20 and it wasn’t that close. Bullard had a bad offense and now they have change it up for the better since then.
Bullard comes off a win over Edison 42-7. Sophomore QB Bryce Weiner had a breakout game going 15-18 for 238 yards and 4 TD passes. It was the first time for a non-senior Knights QB to throw 4 TD passes in Bullard History. Marcus Fulcher rushed for 149 yards.
The St Joseph Knights are the Mountain Champs and maybe the most consistent team in the section. They beat the Righetti High Warriors 27-21. Chase Artopoeus who used to play at Righetti High, comes back and beats his old team going 19 of 27 for 222 yards and scored 2 TD’s.
This Bullard team is rolling right now. The defense is playing at a high level which is led by Dre Greeley and Kobe Jenkins. QB Bryce Weiner has improved soooo much and now is making plays and maybe the top running back in the section, Marcus Fulcher is healthy so this Bullard Knights team has finally arrived.
For the St Joseph Knights they will spread it out and use their speed and have a very good QB with Chase Artopoeus. They have a very good defense and have played in many close games.
The X factor is the Bullard defense and keeping Chase contained in the pocket. If Bullard plays well on defense and can be physical on offense then the bus ride home can be fun.
Pag Meter Prediction (UPSET PICK) Bullard 30 St Joseph 28

FINAL BULLARD 45 ST JOSEPH 28

 

 

 

No 13 CLOVIS EAST T WOLVES (4-7) at No 4 BAKERSFIELD DRILLERS (8-3)
Pag Meter Line Bakersfield -14
The T Wolves battled No 1 Central in the loss 54-38. Ryan Hunt rushed for 278 yards and scored 4 TD’s.
The Drillers lost to Liberty 7-0 and turned the ball over plenty.
The X factor is the T Wolves defense. The Drillers offense is much different than the Grizzlies offense. The Grizzlies can throw it and the Drillers can’t but the Drillers offense is so fast with a big play attack. Can Ryan Hunt and the T Wolves offense have another great game to stay in this game? Every year there is that big upset and if the T Wolves offense can roll…..the bus ride home will be fun.  
Pag Meter Prediction Bakersfield 36 Clovis East 22

FINAL BAKERSFIELD 55 CLOVIS EAST 31

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bottom Bracket

No 14 CLOVIS NORTH BRONCOS (2-8) at No 3 LIBERTY PATRIOTS (10-1)
Pag Meter Prediction Liberty -35+
The Broncos drew the wrong card over Clovis West.
CN got a better seed over Clovis West but has to travel to Bakersfield and get crushed and CW got the 15 seed and gets to stay home and get crushed.
The X factor is the Patriots defense is so much better than the Broncos offense. Look for the Patriots to slowly wear down the Broncos in a slow painful way. The Patriots would love to shut down star RB , Sammy Stewart Jr by halftime.
Pag Meter Prediction Liberty 51 Clovis North 7

FINAL LIBERTY 49 CLOVIS NORTH 7

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No 11 CENTENNIAL GOLDEN HAWKS (6-5) at No 6 CLOVIS COUGARS (7-4)
Pag Meter Line Clovis -7
This could be the perfect time to play the Cougars.
The G Hawks come in beating Frontier 31-13. The game was over at the hand shake.
The Cougars lost to Clovis West 38-35. Horrible loss for the Cougars. QB Jake Sanders threw for 398 yards and 5 TD passes to Reef Dove who caught 12 footballs for 278 yards. Jake throws for 398 yards and the Cougars lose.
The X factor is the Cougars are the better team and if the Cougars defense steps up this game will be a blow out. If G Hawks QB Kyle Connelly gets hot then Centennial will get to play at Liberty next week.
Pag Meter Prediction Clovis 33 Centennial 27

FINAL CLOVIS 49 CENTENNIAL 14

 

 

 

 

No 10 SANGER APACHES (7-4) at No 7 ARROYO GRANDE EAGLES (8-3)
Pag Meter Line Arroyo Grande -7
It’s the small and physical Apaches vs the big and physical Eagles.
The Apaches come in losing to Memorial 41-25. Koshi Agina rushed for 181 yards, scored 2 TD’s with 81 and 66 yard TD runs.
Arroyo Grande comes in off a bye. The Eagles are led by RB James Gilmet.
The X factor is the Apaches defense going against a huge offensive Eagles line running the Wing T.
The Apaches have to use their quickness to win on the road. Both teams will want to grind it out.
Pag Meter Prediction Arroyo Grande 31 Sanger 24

FINAL ARROYO GRANDE 59 SANGER 10 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No 15 CLOVIS WEST GOLDEN EAGLES (2-9) at No 2 BUCHANAN BEARS (9-2)
Pag Meter Line Buchanan -29
It would have been so great if Clovis West would have shut it down after the big win over Clovis 38-35. Sophomore QB David Pierro threw a 36-yard TD pass to Cameron Hicks with 17 seconds to go and the Golden Eagles get a big win for Coach P.
But instead the Golden Eagles have to match up with a dangerous team because the CUSD makes them enter the tournament and it could get ugly.
The Bears toyed with Clovis North in the win 49-21. Brock Jones returned a kickoff 95-yards for a TD. Kendall Milton scored 3 TD’s on runs of 12, 5 and 2 yards. Levi Willems scored 2 TD’s.
The X factor could the Golden Eagles pull the shocker again? Not a chance because Buchanan is light years better than Clovis.
Pag Meter Prediction Buchanan 39 Clovis West 10

FINAL BUCHANAN 31 CLOVIS WEST 0

 

 

 

 

 

 

DIVISION 2 PLAYOFFS
Top Bracket
No 9 REDWOOD RANGERS (4-7) at No 8 GARCES RAMS (4-7)
Garces plays at No 1 Tulare Union Tribe Friday
Pag Meter Line Garces -7
Both teams come off tough losses last week and this is a pretty even game that could come down to the final minutes.
The X factor is the Rangers offense because it’s very streaky. The Rangers will lead with RB Julian Sanchez. The Rangers lately have struggled throwing the football. The Rams can sure throw it with QB Joseph Campbell.
Pag Meter Prediction Garces 28 Redwood 21

FINAL GARCES 45 REDWOOD 0

 

 

 

 

No 12 SUNNYSIDE WILDCATS (3-8) at No 5 HANFORD BULLPUPS (8-3)
Hanford plays at No 4 Dinuba Emperors Friday
Pag Meter Line Hanford -23
It’s the streaky Wildcats vs the red hot Bullpups.
The young Wildcats have been beaten up from injuries.
The X factor is the Wildcats defense trying to slow down Bullpups QB Juaron Watts-Brown. The Bullpups defense is real good!!
Pag Meter Prediction Hanford 37 Sunnyside 14

FINAL HANFORD 40 SUNNYSIDE 21

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bottom Bracket
No 11 FRONTIER TITANS (2-9) at No 6 NIPOMO TITANS (8-3)
Frontier plays at No 3 Righetti High Warriors Friday
Pag Meter Line Nipomo -4
The battle of the Titans will be won by the home team.
Nipomo will want to be physical up front and pound Frontier with Ricky Iniguez who is coming on strong.
The X factor is Frontier can’t match up with speedy teams but has a good chance in this one.
Pag Meter Prediction Nipomo 24 Frontier 20

FINAL FRONTIER 29 NIPOMO 22

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NO 10 PIONEER VALLEY PANTHERS (6-5) at No 7 STOCKDALE MUSTANGS (6-5)
Stockdale plays No 2 Tulare Western Mustangs Thursday at Bob Mathias Stadium
Pag Meter Line Stockdale -14
The Mustangs might be 0-10 right about now if QB Evan Burkhart doesn’t take over after week 2. It changed everything and it made the Mustangs a contender right away.
The Mustangs come off a big win over Garces and the Panthers beat Santa Maria Saints 27-14.
The X factor can the Panthers slow down Burkhart? HUGE NIGHT with 5 TD’s and over 300 yards rushing. Can the Mustangs slow down running backs Micheal Bourbon and Jayson Garcia?
Pag Meter Prediction Stockdale 37 Pioneer Valley 23

FINAL STOCKDALE 45 PIONEER VALLEY 21

 

 

 

 

DIVISION 3 PLAYOFFS
Top Bracket
No 9 SOUTH REBELS (6-5) at No 8 SAN LUIS OBISPO TIGERS (8-3)
San Luis Obispo plays at No 1 Memorial Panthers Friday
Pag Meter Line San Luis Obispo -3
This is the classic No 8 vs No 9 seed and it should be a great game. Both teams are real good when they are on.
The X factor is the Rebels offense vs the Tigers defense. Who will have the better night? The Rebels have so much talent but have been so streaky. It is hard to figure out a team with so much talent and has played a schedule where they should easily be 10-0 but is 6-4. I don’t get it!
Pag Meter Prediction San Luis Obispo 24 South 21

FINAL SAN LUIS OBISPO 24 SOUTH 16

 

 

 

 

No 12 FRESNO HIGH WARRIORS (5-6) at No 5 MADERA COYOTES (6-5)
Pag Meter Line Madera -5
This is the old NYL rivalry back at it again.
The Warriors come off a horrible lose to Roosevelt 49-46. The Warriors blew a 34-7 lead and lost the NYL Championship.
The Coyotes hung on and beat Madera South 21-16.
Both teams have really good QB’s with the Warriors junior Nathaniel Najera and the Coyotes senior Colt Nelson.
The X factor is the Warriors secondary against the Coyotes passing attack. The Warriors ran out of gas against Roosevelt and now they get one of the best shape teams in the valley.
The Warriors can score plenty of points because the Coyotes defense is struggling but for the Warriors to win, they have to play good defense.
Pag Meter Prediction Madera 45 Fresno High 35

FINAL MADERA 27 FRESNO HIGH 21

 

 

No 13 SANTA MARIA SAINTS (3-8) at No 4 MT WHITNEY PIONEERS (7-4)

No 11 WEST VIKINGS (6-5) at No 6 INDEPENDENCE FALCONS (6-5)
Pag Meter Line Independence -10
This is a rematch from Oct 12 when the Falcons beat the Vikings 35-20.
The X factor can the Vikings make the adjustments in the 2nd meeting? It’s always tough to beat a team twice in the same year!  If Jersey Boy, QB Sergio Borreli has a night then Independence will be traveling to Kingsburg next week.
Pag Meter Prediction Independence 33 West 23

Kerman plays at No 4 Golden West Trailblazers Friday
Pag Meter Line Kerman -28
The Titans step up playing the Lions and a tough place to play in Kerman.
The X factor can the Titans offense stay up with the Lions offense with stud back Colton Smith? The Lions will want to physically beat up the Titans. Can the Lions find the magic they had from the beginning of the year? They sure better because a win and they are playing at red hot Golden West.
Pag Meter Prediction Kerman 33 Chavez 6

Bottom Bracket
No 11 MISSION OAK HAWKS (2-9) at No 6 NORTH STARS (7-4)
North plays at No 3 Monache Marauders Friday
Pag Meter Line North -20
The Hawks and Stars both come off big wins.
The X factor can the Stars get hot for the playoffs? The Stars have to get back to plan A with running the ball with Chris Romero and play great defense. The Stars came in the year thinking they would be a top seed so it’s time to step up. The Stars have underachieved just like the South Rebels so they need to finish strong with one of their best Stars teams in a awhile.
The Hawks are physical up front and has to play good defense to hang.

The best division 5 game of the the night with the No 8 vs No 9. DP lost by 1 point to Firebaugh and lost to WSL Championship. The Pag Meter had DP at the No 8 seed and instead they get the No 9 seed. That 1 point loss cost them a 12 hour bus ride. 
The X factor is the Dos Palos offense vs the Bishop Union defense. 
This is a long drive for Dos Palos and if they play their game….they win.

Pag Meter Line Cal City -11
The Ravens come off a big win over Bishop Union to win the Desert League Championship.
The Cougars come off a bye and you never know how a team plays after a bye.

No 6 SIERRA PACIFIC GOLDEN BEARS (6-5) at No 3 OROSI CARDINALS (7-4)

FINAL SIERRA PACIFIC 28 OROSI 14

 

 

 

 

 

No 7 MINARETS MUSTANGS (4-7) at No 2 ORANGE COVE (10-1)
Pag Meter Line Orange Cove -28
The Mustangs come in with a GREAT offense but can’t tackle anybody. Minarets have red hot 3,000 yard passer Martin Urroz, Tyson Ellis who has rushed for 1,707 yards and receivers Preston Conti who leads the section with 1,509 yards, 63 receptions, 20 TD’s and Zack Redman, with 1,012 yards, 56 receptions, 8 TD’s. With those stats, the Mustangs should be 10-0. How in the world is Minarets 4-6? I’m thinking too many players playing both ways.
The Titans come in loaded on both sides of the ball and they will come in pissed off because some coaches voted Orange Cove down on the rankings. If I’m OC….I would be fired up to play.
OC comes in with sophomore QB Zach Ramirez and RB Mario Reynosa who will go over 1,000 yards this game.
The X factor is the Minarets offense is so good and the Mustangs defense is??? OC defense is light years better than the Mustangs. The Mustangs have to win in a shootout.
Pag Meter Orange Cove 55 Minarets 27

FINAL ORANGE COVE 58 MINARETS 24
