WEEK 6 is looking fantastic and the AIR is waaaaay better. It might be a tough week to pick winners on some games and it is also tough for all the teams with very little practice time because of the bad air days during the days.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE TEAMS IN WEEK 6!
Please email your stats so we can add them in. firstname.lastname@example.org
WE want to make all the players and parents happy
Thank you for making the PAGMETER website your go to site for Central Section football!
Let the PAGMETER know when I mess up on predictions. Love to hear it on twitter that we got teams fired up. That’s what it all about! Last week, blew the West Vikings pick!
In week 5 the PAGMETER went 40-5 and for the year 180-31 (85%)
THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FINALS
LINDSAY CARDINALS (1-5) (1-1) at GRANITE HILLS GRIZZLIES (1-5) (0-2)
This is a big division 7 seeding game, and somebody will be getting their first League win.
Both teams have played a tough schedule.
The X factor The Cardinals have played a tough schedule and I see them breaking out.
PAGMETER PREDICTION LINDSAY 30 GRANITE HILLS 9
FINAL LINDSAY 34 GRANITE HILLS 6
SANGER APACHES (3-2) vs CLOVIS EAST T WOLVES (4-1)
The Giant Flag Bowl and the Silver Spear Trophy
The Apaches come in beating Kennedy 28-14. Aston Rodriquez scored 3 TD’s. Josiah Duarte hit Nikko Ortega on a beautiful 18-yard TD pass and the defense shutout the Thunderbirds because the Birds scored on a fumble recovery and a pick-6.
The T Wolves beat Tulare Union 28-0. Freshman QB TY Miller went 12-20 for 218 yards and 3 TD’s. Senior Maddox Merlo caught 4 passes for 157-yards and scored 2 TD’s. Lamaj Travis rushed for 75-yards, scored a TD and the defense played outstanding.
The last time these teams played was on Sept 5, 2019, before the world ended, the Apaches came back to beat the T Wolves 21-14 and after the game it got ugly in the middle of the field with players, coaches, and administration. It all started in 2018 when the T Wolves beat the Apaches in Sanger and the T Wolves brought out the giant T Wolve flags and strutted around Chuck Shidan field/Tom Flores Stadium. The Apaches made a mental note, never made a fuss. After the Apaches comeback win in 2019, the Apaches giant flags came out and the T Wolves were not happy with a short memory.
You are now caught up and this is a GREAT rivalry with both school boundaries meeting out by Academy Ave. I’m glad these schools play every year. I’m guessing there will be plenty of giant flags and administration on hand for this big game.
The Apaches are finally healthy for the first time this year and will bring in the running attack that is so dangerous. Leading the Apaches defense is DL Sam Shidan.
The T Wolves are not the old boring Wing T offense any longer especially with their freshman gunslinger QB. I love a coaching staff adapting to the talent they have instead of the players adapting to the old offense. The T Wolves are now a balanced attack and that makes practice & football fun for the players and coaches.
The X factor is the defensive side of the ball. Can the Wolves slow down the Apaches running game? Can the Apaches match up with the new and improved Wolves offense? This should be a great giant flag hard hitting game!
PAGMETER PREDICTION Clovis East 21 Sanger 17
FINAL SANGER 14 CLOVIS EAST 10 (Sanger wins the Silver Spear Trophy)
Aston Rodriquez scored 2 TD’s including the game winner with 2 minutes to go. T Wolves QB Ty Miller scored on a 10-yard TD run.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS FINALS
SOUTH REBELS (2-2) at WEST VIKINGS (3-0) CANCELED
FRONTIER TITANS (3-1) at NORTH STARS (1-2) CANCELED
WASCO TIGERS (4-0) at DELANO TIGERS (3-1) 7:15 CANCELED
FOOTHILL TROJANS (4-0) at BAKERSFIELD DRILLERS (0-3) CANCELED
CHAVEZ TITANS (0-4) (0-1) at MCFARLAND COUGARS (1-3) (0-1) CANCELED
BAKERSFIELD CHRISTIAN EAGLES (2-3) at TULARE UNION TRIBE (1-3)
South Yosemite vs East Yosemite
The Eagles come in off a bye and the Tribe lost in a shutout to Clovis East 28-0.
The X factor who would have thought the Tribe would start the year at 0-3 and possible 0-4. This game is on the fast field turf so which defense will step up? The battle of the senior quarterbacks is with Eagles Braden Waterman vs Tribe Jorge Gonzales. This is a game where both teams match up with each other.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Bakersfield Christian 20 Tulare Union 17
FINAL TULARE UNION 17 BAKERSFIELD CHRISTIAN 7
BUCHANAN BEARS (4-1) vs EDISON TIGERS (1-4)
TRAC vs CMAC
The Bears come off a bye after playing Los Alamitos very tough in the loss 34-31. The Tigers beat Dinuba 40-20. (No stats provided)
The X factor is the Bears defense vs the Tigers offense. The Tigers have been scoring points but now they will be going against the best defense in the Central Section. The Bears offense is a smart/physical/fast with a balanced attack and leading the way is senior RB Caden Rodgers who rushed for 108 yards against Los Alamitos, senior WR Josiah Ayon who is one of the best receivers in the state and QB Jayden Mandal. Every year there is a Running Back that just smells the endzone and tough to stop especially in the Redzone and this year that RB is Caden Rodgers. A TD machine!
The Tigers have played a tough schedule and it continues Friday night. The Tigers have plenty of speed and it starts with junior QB Yaj Vance who must have a huge break out game for the Tigers along with some big plays to pull off the shocker. The Tigers will need to force turnovers along with some long TD runs. Teams have trouble trying to march down the field against the Bears defense.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Buchanan 48 Edison 14
FINAL BUCHANAN 45 EDISON 14 (ALMOST NAILED THE SCORE)
MCLANE HIGHLANDERS (4-1*) at DOS PALOS BRONCOS (5-0)
North Yosemite vs West Sierra
The Highlanders come off a bye and the Broncos beat Chowchilla 35-28. Broncos with 5 turnovers. Trent Calvert scored 2 TD’s and threw 2 TD passes. (Aaron Jones 10-yards & Miguel Paderio 30-yards) Defensive Tackle Chris Lozano picked up a fumble and took it in for a TD.
The X factor is the Highlanders running game with Ernesto Castaneda Gamino vs the Broncos defense. Can the Highlanders defense match up with the Broncos offense attack? With the Broncos, you never know what Broncos team will show up? In the win over Exeter A+ game. The win over Chowchilla C+ game. You get the idea. I’m thinking after a turnover game with fumbles/interceptions, the Broncos will play their A game.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Dos Palos 42 McLane 20
FINAL DOS PALOS 38 MCLANE 14
GOLDEN VALLEY BULLDOGS (1-3) vs TORRES TOROS (2-4)
This is a very good match up of teams moving in the right direction. The Bulldogs have played 3 tough teams and close to breaking out. The Toros are the new team and improving with every quarter they play.
The X factor is the Bulldogs defense and for them to win, they must play well for 48 minutes. Can the young sophomore QB Jose Soriano lead the Toros to their 3rd win? This could come down to the final minutes.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Golden Valley 26 Torros 20
FINAL GOLDEN VALLEY 28 TORRES 13
HANFORD WEST HUSKIES (1-4) at GOLDEN WEST TRAILBLAZERS (2-3)
The West Bowl
This is a very good match up of teams that need a win. The Huskies come off a bye and the Blazers crushed Hoover 49-0.
The X factor is the defense and who will play their A game? If HW plays like they did in the win over Sierra Pacific and if GW plays like they did against Hoover, this should a great finish.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Golden West 28 Hanford West 13
FINAL GOLDEN WEST 27 HANFORD WEST 6
TULARE WESTERN MUSTANGS (3-2) at HANFORD BULLPUPS (3-0)
The East Yosemite vs the West Yosemite
The game of the night!
The Mustangs come in beating Mt Whitney 45-7. Junior QB Carmine Ficher now with 10 TD passes on the year. Jayson Hernandez with 2 interceptions including a 31-yard pick-6. The Bullpups beat Madera 35-7. Junior Cayden Muir is the perfect QB for Head Coach Cannon Sanchez’s offense.
The X factor the Bullpups are real good and playing at home.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Hanford 35 Tulare Western 21
FINAL HANFORD 41 TULARE WESTERN 7
KINGSBURG VIKINGS (3-2) vs REDWOOD RANGERS (1-3)
The Central Sequoia vs the West Yosemite
The Vikings come in beating Porterville 24-6. The Vikings had a 21-0 lead at the half Micah Spomer scored 2 TD’s. Trace Jackson is starting to get it going rushing for 166-yards on 13 carries and scored a TD. The Vikings defense is outstanding.
The Rangers lost to Clovis North 24-21 in a very good game. RB Karson Everett had another outstanding game.
The X factor with the ugly air from the Sequoia’s, the Rangers are doing what they can to practice this week, and we all know what the VUSD will do if they have a chance? Cancel. VUSD would probably cancel a game if there wasn’t enough Hotdogs in the snack bar.
The X factor is the defense and going against a couple of outstanding offenses. The Vikings offense and leading the way is Spomer, Jackson, RB Caleb Irigoyen, WR Conner McFall and junior QB Ethan Winslow. Ethan is due to have a breakout game. The Rangers offense and leading the way is Everett, junior QB Francisco Alvarez who is also due for a breakout game, and WR Aston Ibarra.
The Rangers are getting better and better each week and it’s because VUSD didn’t let the Rangers play spring football and right now they are a division 3 team in the new playoff format which is crazy to think Redwood in division 3 and if the Rangers do end up in division 3, they will be the team to beat.
The Vikings never stopped playing football because they have a come sense district. Hey VUSD, you should rent a bus and go visit the Kingsburg school district office and see how they do things.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Kingsburg 27 Redwood 21
FINAL REDWOOD 20 KINGSBURG 18
PORTERVILLE PANTHERS (2-3) at LEMOORE TIGERS (4-1)
The EYL vs WYL (The Mean Cat Bowl)
The Panthers come in losing to Kingsburg 24-6. The Panthers ran into a very good Vikings defense. The Tigers had a bye.
The X factor is the Panthers offense because they need a big night to win on the road. Can the Panthers defense slow down the Tigers offense with junior QB Ty Chambers leading the way?
PAGMETER PREDICTION Lemoore 34 Porterville 13
FINAL LEMOORE 39 PORTERVILLE 0
EL DIAMANTE MINERS (2-3) at MADERA COYOTES (1-4)
West Yosemite vs CMAC
Both teams really need a win especially with their tough leagues getting ready to crank up.
The Miners come in losing to Stockdale 27-0 and the Coyotes lost to Hanford 35-7.
The X factor this should be a very good game and as you can see above with the scores from last week, both offenses need to put some drives together with points.
PAGMETER PREDICTION El Diamante 24 Madera 13
FINAL EL DIAMANTE 26 MADERA 14
MADERA SOUTH STALLIONS (4-1) at KERMAN LIONS (0-6)
CMAC vs North Sequoia
The Stallions come in beating Fresno High 52-0. The Runnin’ Stallions rushed for 350-yards on 38 carries with 5 TD’s. (9.2 yards per carry) Running backs Erik Cervantes and Angelo Moreno along with QB Jacob Edwards and the offensive line got it going. Rueben Marines returned a 68-yard punt for TD and Sergio Garcia scooped up a 20-yard fumble and returned it for a TD. The Lions lost to Firebaugh 56-12.
The X factor watching the Lions offense is very confusing. The Lions will look good with everything working but will out smart themselves and switch into another mode and will go away from what is working. On film it’s amazing the Lions are 0-5 because they are pretty good. You don’t have to be an offensiveolgist to know, stay with what is working until somebody can stop you.
Can the Lions defense match up with the Stallions Wing T? With the bad air days this week, the Stallions haven’t been on the field much so that will either be really good thing or really bad. With the new playoff format. The Lions could go all the way to division 6. If they do get into division 6 and figure out a game plan, they will be tough to beat.
For the Stallions, this is their last fun game until they play Madera in week 11. It’s like being excited going to Disneyland but knowing in the back of your mind for the next 4 weeks you must go to the dentist every Friday for root canal surgery. (Bullard, Edison, Memorial and Sanger is root canal)
PAGMETER PREDICTION Madera South 44 Kerman 17
FINAL MADERA SOUTH 45 KERMAN 6
SAN LUIS OBISPO TIGERS (2-2) at NIPOMO TITANS (5-0)
Ocean vs Mountain
The Tigers come off a bye and the Titans beat Morro Bay 48-35. Nate Reece threw a TD pass, rushed for 117-yards, and scored a TD.
The X factor this is a very interesting game because both teams are big contenders in their leagues. The Tigers are the mystery team because right now they are in division 4 and really should be in division 3. The Titans are looking to go 5-0 heading into league, and they are in the between stage with the playoff format. Will they get a low seed in division 2 (Not good) or a high seed in division 3? (Real good)
Can the Tigers offense keep up with the Titans offense?
PAGMETER PREDICTION Nipomo 30 San Luis Obispo 17
FINAL NIPOMO 27 SAN LUIS OBISPO 10
ROOSEVELT ROUGH RIDERS (3-2) at CHOWCHILLA TRIBE (0-6)
North Yosemite vs North Sequoia
The Riders come off a bye and the Tribe played their best game of the year in the tough loss to Dos Palos 35-28. Jesus Ojeda with 3 rushing TD’s.
The X factor the Tribe must keep improving with a small number of players because once they hit league play, they can beat almost anybody and head into the playoffs with plenty of MOJO. If the Tribe end up in division 6, watch up.
The Riders have played a tough schedule and they are winning games with outstanding big drives and tremendous defensive stops. That is how you prepare for the playoffs. Leading the Riders is RB Uly Diaz, Linebacker David Contreas and the offensive line is one of the best right now in the Section. The big boys are getting it done upfront.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Roosevelt 39 Chowchilla 21
FINAL ROOSEVELT 34 CHOWCHILLA 16
HOOVER PATRIOTS (0-4) at SELMA BEARS (1-2)
North Yosemite vs Central Sequoia
The Patriots come in losing to Golden West 49-0. The Patriots have been out scored in the last 2 games 105-0. The Bears lost to Reedley 27-10. Paul Rodriguez scored the Bears first TD of the year.
The X factor the Patriots have been hit with the political flu just like the Bears, but the big difference is the Bears are way ahead of the Patriots when it comes to getting it done. The Bears are getting better and better since the Selma administration is letting the team play and practice. It’s funny how you get better when you get to practice. Can the Patriots slow down Rodriguez?
PAGMETER PREDICTION Selma 41 Hoover 0
FINAL SELMA 35 HOOVER 7
MT WHITNEY PIONEERS (1-3) at Sunnyside Wildcats (3-1)
The Pioneers come in losing to Tulare Western 45-7. Joey Saavedra scored on a 52-yard TD run. The Wildcats lost to Strathmore 46-34. Freshman QB Tanner Wilson went 37-50 with 452 yards, 3 TD passes, rushed for 65 yards and scored 2 TD’s. Freshman CJ Jones caught 10 passes for 120 yards. Freshman Malachi Barnes also caught 10 passes for 127 yards. Senior DaeShaun Bias caught 10 passes for 129 yards. Senior Ethan Vu caught 5 passes for 66 yards.
The X factor is the Pioneers defense slowing the Wildcats offense because you never who Wilson will be throwing the football to. Can the Joey Saavedra and the Pioneers offense put together some long drives and keep the Wildcats offense off the field? This could be a high scoring game.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Sunnyside 35 Mt Whitney 24
FINAL SUNNYSIDE 31 MT WHITNEY 28
WASHINGTON UNION PANTHERS (2-2) vs MONACHE MARUDERS (3-2)
North Sequoia vs East Yosemite
The Panthers come in losing to Memorial 47-0. The Marauders beat East Bakersfield 35-7.
The X factor this is a game that they both need to win. The Panthers can’t imagine being 1-3 heading into league and Monache would love to be 4-1 heading into the difficult EYL.
It’s the Panthers offense vs the Marauders defense. The Marauders need to be physical upfront.
PAGMETER PREDICTION UPSET PICK Monache 27 Washington Union 24
FINAL WASHINGTON UNION 12 MONACHE 7
YOSEMITE BADGERS (1-1) at IMMANUEL EAGLES (1-3)
The Badgers are excited to get back practicing football after being out and that is thanks to the Yosemite administration. I really have no idea how the great people in Oakhurst puts up with a phony school board administration. The Badgers have some talent but to get good, you need to PRACTICE!
The Eagles come in losing to CVC 28-0. The new Wing T has not worked yet.
The X factor the Eagles will steam roll in this this one. Yosemite hasn’t practiced for 2 weeks and have only played one game. The Eagles are trying to put in the Wing T offense like a last-minute garage sale. Wing T offense doesn’t work that way. The Eagles are running it 60% Wing T and 40% of some other form. The Wing T is not a microwave offense, it takes time to cook in the oven. The Eagles have scored 2 TDs in 3 games. The Eagles have outstanding senior QB Hector Davila who is playing QB & RB. The Eagles have slipped into division 6. With all that said, Badgers have zero chance of winning when you can’t practice for 2 weeks. Chalk this one up to the Yosemite administration. This will be the perfect game for the Eagles to practice their Wing T on.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Immanuel 40 Yosemite 7
FINAL IMMANUEL 41 YOSEMITE 0
MENDOTA AZTECS (3-1) at ARGONAUT MUSTANGS (3-2)
The Aztecs come in from a bye and it was a good time for one because they were beat up with injuries. The Mustangs come in beating Franklin of Stockton 48-0. Senior QB Beau Davis who is a dual threat/Wing T QB and does a tremendous job.
The X factor the Aztecs haven’t practiced much because of the bad air and for the Aztecs to win on the road they must play a clean game on offense. Against Reedley in the no-contest/lightning game, the Aztecs struggled tackling, dropped plenty of passes along with penalties. QB Juan Ceja is going to be very good. Juan has a tremendous arm and leader but will learn to be the complete QB with carrying out fakes to set up the play action. I’m an old QB and that’s the first thing I notice when I watch games. What does the QB do after the hand-off. Can the Aztecs defense step up and slow down the Wing T?
PAGMETER PREDICTION Argonaut 30 Mendota 20
FINAL ARGONAUT 41 MENDOTA 7
MISSION PREP ROYALS (4-0) at CARPINTERIA WARRIORS (0-5)
The Royals come in off a bye after beating St Francis 42-7. The Warriors lost to Brentwood 45-0.
The X factor is the Royals are very good and the Warriors are not. It’s that simple. The Warriors are very young, and they should not be playing the Royals. The good thing about Coach Schuster, he will not rub it in because this could be 100-0.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Mission Prep 55 Carpinteria 0
FINAL MISSION PREP 51 CARPINTERIA 0 (ALMOST NAILED THE SCORE)
ATASCADERO GREYHOUNDS (1-3) at ROYAL HIGHLANDERS (2-2) 7:00
The Greyhounds come in losing to Paso Robles 21-6. The Royals lost to Dos Pueblos 17-14 in OT.
The X factor which offense will step up and finish drives with points? The home team has the big edge.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Royal 30 Atascadero 13
FINAL ROYAL 34 ATASCADERO 6
ST MARGARET’S TARTANS (2-3) at ST JOSEPH KNIGHTS (2-3)
The St Bowl
The Tartans (Love the mascot) comes in beating up Riverside Prep 54-0. Senior 6’4 QB Jack Ruff has thrown 11 TD’s this so far year.
The Knights beat Santa Teresa 54-7. QB Caden Cuccia went 13-16 for 274-yards, 3 TD’s, rushed for 82 yards.
The X factor is the defense going against a couple of hot offenses.
PAGMETER PREDICTION St Joseph 32 St Margaret’s 27
FINAL ST JOSEPH 28 ST MARGARET’S 27
ST PAUL SWORDMEN (5-0) at RIGHETTI HIGH WARRIORS (0-4)
The Swordman comes in beating Diamond Ranch 27-7. Senior QB Isaiah Dunn is a dual threat and has thrown for 7 TD’s. The Warriors lost to Camarillo 29-6.
The X factor the Warriors are still struggling with getting going late with the political flu issues and now they play a very good team who has a lights out defense.
PAGMETER PREDICTION St Paul 35 Righetti High 20
FINAL ST PAUL 28 RIGHETTI HIGH 21
STOCKDALE MUSTANGS (4-0) at MOORPARK MUSKETEERS (1-5)
The Mustangs come in beating El Diamante 27-0. Brandon Arzabal scored 3 TD’s and Ian Harrison scored on a 12-yard TD run.
The Musketeers (love the mascot) lost to Agoura 41-6.
The X factor The Musketeers offense is struggling and if the Mustangs can play good Mustangs football, the bus ride home will be loud.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Stockdale 23 Moorpark 20
FINAL STOCKDALE 10 MOORPARK 7
PIEDMONT HIGHLANDERS (0-2) at TEMPLETON EAGLES (2-2) 7:00
The Highlanders come in losing to Castro Valley 22-12 and the Eagles lost to West Bakersfield 35-18. Leading the way is RB Jack Wood.
The X Factor is the Highlanders started football late and now will battle against the Eagles Wing T. Not fun.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Templeton 21 Piedmont 7
FINAL TEMPLETON 15 PIEDMONT 0
SANTA MAIRA SAINTS (2-3) at FILLMORE FLASHES (4-1)
This game was put together on Wednesday after Pioneer Valley canceled on Santa Maria.
The Saints come in beating Cabrillo 35-6 and the win keeps the Conquistadores losing streak now at 32 straight games dating back to 2017. Albert Mendoza gets his 2nd win as the new coach of the Saints. The Flashes beat Oak Park 17-14.
The X factor the Saints offense needs a big night to stay with the Flashes.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Fillmore 44 Santa Maria 20
FINAL FILLMORE 56 SANTA MARIA 21
CORCORAN PANTHERS (3-0) (1-0) at FARMERSVILLE AZTECS (1-2) (0-1) 7:00
The Panthers come in beating Granite Hills 48-0. The Aztecs had a bye.
The X factor the Panthers have only given up 1 TD in 3 games. This team is good and will compete against Strathmore for the East Sequoia championship. It’s crazy to think that a little school like Corcoran is in division 4 with the new playoff format right now and that is 100000% wrong. They need to be in division 5.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Corcoran 45 Farmersville 7
FINAL CORCORAN 45 FARMERSVILLE 14
SHAFTER GENERALS (3-2) (2-0) at TAFT WILDCATS (2-2) (0-1)
The Generals come in beating Chavez 27-20. QB Devon Sundgren rushed for 137-yards, scored 3 TD’s and threw a TD pass to Ryan Pitter. Koa Rhodes rushed for 105 yards. Taft comes in off a bye.

PAGMETER PREDICTION Orange Cove 39 Minarets 13
FINAL ORANGE COVE 41 MINARETS 6
OROSI CARDINALS (4-1*) (2-0) at CARTHERS BLUE RAIDERS (1-5) (1-1)
This game was moved to Caruthers because of the bad air in Orosi
The Blue Raiders come in beating Parlier 60-0. Hunter Babb rushed for 135-yards and scored 2 TD’s. The Cardinals beat Avenal 49-8. Alex Ortega scored on a 50-yard TD. Angelo Apodaca scored 2 TD’s. Andrew Camarillo rushed for 187-yards and scored 3 TD’s.
The X factor this has been a great game every year. Can the young Blue Crew slow down the Red Birds running game? Don’t go be the Blue Boys record because they have played a tough schedule.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Orosi 33 Caruthers 30
FINAL OROSI 31 CARUTHERS 29
RIVERDALE COWBOYS (3-0) (2-0) at PARLIER PANTHERS (0-4) (0-2)
The Cowboys come in beating Orange Cove 15-6 and the Panthers lost to Caruthers 60-0.

PAGMETER PREDICTION Riverdale 45 Parlier 0
FINAL RIVERDALE 74 PARLIER 6
SATURDAY FOOTBALL FINALS
CALIFORNIA CITY RAVENS (0-2) at MIRA MONTE LIONS (2-2)
The X factor the Lions are hoping they have a game on Friday, and they are hoping the Ravens show up. The Ravens are a mystery team with a new head coach and a new everything. Look for the Lions to roll. The Lions are good and if they somehow land in division 7, the Lions will be the favorites.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Mira Monte 39 Cal City 0
FINAL MIRA MONTE 42 CAL CITY 0 (ALMOST NAILED THE SCORE)
KENNEDY THUNDERBIRDS (5-1) (1-0) at ARVIN BEARS (1-4) (0-1)
The Thunderbirds come in losing to Sanger 28-14. Gamiez Helm scored both TD’s with a 67-yard scoop & score and a 46-yard pick-6. The game was put together late in the week. The Bears lost to North 41-21. Jonathon Moreno rushed for 127-yards and scored 2 TD’s.
The X factor the Bears will be a tough team to beat in division 6. The Birds playing at Sanger will take them to another level with the growth of this team. They belonged against the Apaches. In the new playoff format, they are in division 3 and that is so wrong. The overachieving Birds should be in D4. Can the Bears slow down RB Adrian Juarez?
PAGMETER PREDICTION Kennedy 42 Arvin 0
FINAL KENNEDY 49 ARVIN 0 (ALMOST NAILED THE SCORE)
BORON BOBCATS (2-3) at BIG BEAR BEARS (5-1)

I love Saturday football. The Tigers come in losing to Mira Monte 35-8. The Pirates lost to Nipomo 48-35. QB Nicky Johnson has thrown 11 TD passes.

SIERRA PACIFIC GOLDEN BEARS (1-4) (0-1) at WOODLAKE TIGERS (2-4) (2-0)
The Bears come in losing to Coalinga 42-0 and Woodlake beat Lindsay 33-7.
The X factor the Golden Bears have been outscored 79-0 in the last 2 games and now they play a hot team that can light up the scoreboard. If the Tigers can handle the G-Bears Wing T, they will roll at home.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Woodlake 34 Sierra Pacific 20
FINAL WOODLAKE 27 SIERRA PACIFIC 20
Man, you predicted DP/McLane game almost perfect.
Here’s my question to you and tell me what you think,
Should Los Banos be in the Central Section or should they stay put at Sac-Joaquin Section?
I do and I have been pushing for a while. Atwater, Buhach Colony, Golden Valley….it should be a no brainer.
Chowchilla and Dos Palos are so close to the north. Hopefully someday.
