THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FINAL
Tulare Western Mustangs (3-2) at Hanford Bullpups (5-0)
Pag Meter Line Hanford -5
The best game of the week and it’s played on Thursday night.
Both teams have had 2 weeks to get ready for this showdown.
The Mustangs have had 2 weeks to think about the loss to Redwood 27-22.
The Bullpups beat a good Porterville team 35-14.
This has the makings to be a Thursday night shootout.
Both teams have plenty of firepower on offense. The Mustangs are led by red hot senior QB Elijah Burrell who has thrown for 1,075 yards and 15 TD passes. The Mustangs have unleashed Burrell and he’s having a heck of a year. RB Tairyn Johnson, comes in rushing for 290 yards and has scored 3 TD’s. Junior DB/RB/WR Mikey Ficher, has caught 16 passes, scored 3 TD’s and Mark Smith has caught 12 balls and has scored 6 TD’s.
The Bullpups also have a red hot QB with senior Juaron Watts-Brown goes and senior running back Travone Houston.
The X factor is the Mustangs struggled against a real good Rangers defense and now they face another good Bullpups defense which is led by the best linebacker in the section senior Tyler Mello. Last year TW beat the Bullpups 35-7 but the puppies are so much better this year.
Tulare Western averages 44 ppg and Hanford 55 ppg. Which defense will step up?
The Pag Meter is looking forward to this game and will be strolling the sidelines at the Neighbor Bowl

Bullard Knights (4-1) at Arroyo Grande Eagles (4-2)
Pag Meter Line Bullard -21
Last year the Eagles beat up the Knights at Ratcliffe Stadium 24-12.

The Eagles beat Nipomo 21-6. QB Ethan Royal scored 3 TD’s.
The X factor is Eagles outstanding RB Caleb Tomasin has a torn MCL and is out. This is a huge loss for the Eagles. The Knights are very good on defense and the running game but struggle in the passing and kicking game. QB Weiner has to relax and play catch with his amazing receivers. If the Knights are really the No 4 ranked team they should roll this week. Next week is another big game vs Memorial at Ratcliffe Stadium.
For the Eagles, they are coming right at you and the Knights better strap it up. The Eagles will need somebody to step up for Tomasin.

The Royals lost to a powerhouse Oak Park 35-7.
The X factor is the Royals are playing a killer schedule after winning the 8 man title last year. I’m proud to see that. Plenty of teams would never play a tough schedule like this. RB Brian Kowall is back and will give the offense a boost. Jaalen is also this weeks Pag Meter/940 ESPN/First String Sports Student Athlete Of the Week.

Mission Oak Hawks (3-2) vs Madera South Stallions (3-2)
The Purple Bowl
Pag Meter Line Mission Oak -14
This has the makings to be a real good game. Both teams move into division 5, both teams play in tough leagues and both will contend for the D5 title.
The Hawks come in beating Kerman 21-6.
The Stallions beat up Fresno High 49-28.
The X factor is both defenses. The Hawks have yet to play against a Wing T offense so can the Hawks speedy defense step up? The Stallions lost to Kerman and Mission Oak beat Kerman so Mission Oak should win but football is all about matchups.
If the Stallions offensive line can move the Hawks D-line around then the Stallions can win in Madera. The Hawks only loss was against Madera at Madera where the game will be played.
