CENTRAL GRIZZLIES ARE THE TRAC CHAMPIONS!
Clovis West Golden Eagles (3-6) (1-3) vs Central Grizzlies (9-0) (4-0)
Pag Meter Line Central -28
The Golden Eagles coming in losing to Clovis East 28-14.
The Grizzlies steam rolled the Broncos 58-14. The Grizzlies won their 21st straight TRAC game. The defense stuffed the Broncos all night long. Jameson Silva, went 11-14 for 161 Yards, 3 TD’s. Quali Conley, rushed for 152 yards on 14 carries & 3 TD’s. Jeremiah Hunter, caught 6 passes for 94 yards & 2 TD’s. Manuel Oliver-Davis, caught a 49-yard TD.
The X factor nobody in the TRAC matches up with Central and the Grizzlies will win their 22nd straight TRAC game. Forget about hoping the Grizzlies have a bad night because it’s a Thursday, this team is a MACHINE!
Pag Meter Prediction Central 42 Clovis West 14
FINAL CENTRAL 55 CLOVIS WEST 21
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS FINALS
Dinuba Emperors (3-6) (1-3) at Exeter Monarchs (4-5) (1-3)
Pag Meter Line Dinuba -16
Dinuba comes in losing to Kingsburg 25-3 and Exeter lost to Selma 58-18.
The X factor the Emperors can’t run the football, struggling on defense and that’s why they are 2-6. The Monarchs are also struggling on defense. This should be a good game and both teams need a win.
Pag Meter Prediction Dinuba 43 Exeter 27
FINAL DINUBA 51 EXETER 28
Hanford West Huskies (1-8) (0-4) at Kingsburg Vikings (9-0) (4-0)
Pag Meter Line Kingsburg -35+
The X factor the Huskies haven’t scored in 4 straight games (17 quarters) and now they have to face the 4th best defense in the Central Section. The Vikings will shut it down early to get ready for the Central Sequoia Championship game vs Selma next week.
Pag Meter Prediction Kingsburg 63 Hanford West 0
FINAL KINGSBURG 53 HANFORD WEST 0
Selma Bears (8-1) (4-0) at Central Valley Christian Cavaliers (5-4) (2-2)
Pag Meter Line Selma -23
The Bears come in beating Exeter 58-18. Zach Zarate, scored 3 TD’s on runs of 3,4, & 11 yards.
CVC comes in beating up Hanford West 65-0.
The X factor CVC star running back Jaalen Rening who is the best back in our section got hurt in the HW game playing on defense and is out for the rest of the year and will have surgery very soon. This is sad news for a great player! Look for the Bears outstanding defense to be the difference in this one. The Bears are on a special run. CVC will likely have to rely on senior QB Tyce Griswold and Junior Mason Haworth to be a big part of the Caves offense the rest of the way.
Pag Meter Prediction Selma 37 CVC 14
FINAL SELMA 35 CVC 3
Bullard Knights (7-2) (3-1) vs Madera South Stallions (3-6) (0-4)
Pag Meter Line Bullard -35+
The Knights come in beating Madera 24-3. The Knights defense is playing great at the right time. Jersey Boy Jaden Pierucci, threw 3 TD passes, Kai Sunamoto, Dre Greeley, and Shalom Welch each caught a TD.
The X factor the Madera South, CMAC death march ends after Friday. Let’s all pray that the CIF does the right thing by Jan 1 and get the Stallions out of the CMAC. It’s also not fair to Bullard playing a division 5 team for strength of schedule if it did come down to that for playoff seedings.
Knights QB Pierucci is getting better and better with every snap he takes. There is NOT on team in division 5 that would win a game playing in the CMAC so disregard 4 losses on the Stallions schedule.

The X factor the Tigers might not win another game this year and the Tigers are falling off a cliff in a hurry. You can only thank the former administration for Edison sliding into the abyss.
Washington Union and Central are sooooo happy right now!
Sanger is battling for the No 3 seed in the Division 2 playoffs and will need to beat Memorial next week or the Apaches could be the No 5 seed.

The X factor the Pag Meter is the only one that has Lindsay at No 1 in division 6 especially after beating Cal City.
If Lindsay beats Strathmore in week 11, slam dunk No 1 seed. If not then it will come down to the winner of the Bishop Union vs Cal City game in week 11. The Golden Bears’ defense is not good and now has to slow down Danny Trujillo. SP DEFENSE PLAYED FANTASTIC!!
