The Grizzlies come off another bye and the Golden Eagles lost to Clovis North 28-7.
The X factor the Grizzlies have had 2 weeks to think about the ugly loss to Buchanan so look for the Grizzlies to start fast. Grizzlies QB Dayton Tafoya takes on his old team. This year the Golden Eagles rotate QBs. I wonder if the Golden Eagles would be rotating QBs if Tafoya stayed? Tyler Patrick has thrown 10 TD passes and has to rotate.

CLOVIS NORTH BRONCOS (5-4) (2-2) at BUCHANAN BEARS (8-1) (4-0)
The Broncos come in beating Clovis West 28-7. Paul Sharp, McKay Madsen, Vincent Cordova and Jake Parnigian each scored TDs. Buchanan beat Clovis 33-24. Jayden Mandal went 14-26 for 194-yards & 3 TD passes. Caden Rodgers, scored on a TD run. WR Josiah Ayon, caught 6 footballs for 84-yards and scored a TD.
The X factor and it is a BIG X factor, Bears QB Jayden Mandal injured his ankle at practice and could be out 2-4 weeks. If it is a high ankle injury, those type of injuries could linger for a while. Jayden is one of the best QBs in the central section and the best QB in the TRAC who runs the Bears offense so well. There is no way the Bears will be the same on offense without their outstanding QB. This could be a big blow to the Buchanan Bears title run. The Bears will be going with junior Colton O’Toole who would be a starter on any other team. This kid is good. Stay tuned. This is a tough pick of not knowing how the Bears will come out. The Bears still have the best defense in the central section along a very good running game. The Broncos come in with maybe the best offensive line in the central section, outstanding speedy running backs, and a very good defense but does have a C- passing game. SO MANY QUESTIONS IN THIS GAME! The first TD might win this game.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Buchanan 21 Clovis North 14

The T Wolves come off a political flu bye and the Cougars lost to Buchanan 33-24. Tristan Risley rushed for 241-yards and 2 TDs.
The X factor the T Wolves are starting over and now will go against the Cougars. Can the T Wolves offense score enough to stay with the Cougars? Freshman QB Ty Miller will need a huge game. The Cougars have the best running back in the central section with Risley and if the Cougars ever figured out how to feature Risley, the Cougars would be the team to beat. Cougar nation is waiting for their division 1 QB Nate Johnson to do his thing soon and take over because it’s almost playoff time.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Clovis 35 Clovis East 14
FINAL CLOVIS 41 CLOVIS EAST 14

OROSI CARDINALS (6-3) (3-2) at PARLIER PANTHERS (0-8) (0-5)

FINAL OROSI 62 PARLIER 0
COALINGA HORNED TOADS (5-2) (1-2) at DOS PALOS BRONCOS (9-0) (4-0 CHAMPIONS)
The WSL showdown. If the Toads win, there could be a 3-way tie. If the Broncos win, they will be champions for the 51st team and a state record for most league wins which they already own.
No stats provided from last week’s games with Coalinga beating Tranquility 26-0 and Dos Palos beating Firebaugh 24-21.
The X factor the Toads have been caught up with the political flu and won’t have enough if they are not at 100%.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Dos Palos 35 Coalinga 21
FINAL DOS PALOS 24 COALINGA 6
MENDOTA AZTECS (3-5) (1-3) at FIREBAUGH EAGLES (7-2) (2-1)
The battle for highway 33
The Aztecs come in off a bye and Firebaugh lost to Dos Palos 24-21.
The X factor the Eagles loss wasn’t a bad thing because I believe the Eagles should be in division 4. The crazy computer rankings has the Eagles ahead of Roosevelt and Roosevelt beat the Eagles. The Aztecs and Eagles both belong in division 4. This should be a great game! Which defense will step up?
PAGMETER PREDICTION Firebaugh 33 Mendota 28
FINAL FIREBAUGH 35 MENDOTA 21
AVENAL BUCCANEERS (1-3) (0-0) at TRANQUILITY TIGERS (0-7) (0-3)
Tranquillity was notified on Tuesday that for Friday night, SJVOA didn’t have enough officials to cover the game, choices were either contact another group of Refs or move the game to Thursday and Tranquility failed to act. Good news both teams had fun.
GOLDEN WEST TRAILBLAZERS (2-7) (0-3) at HANFORD BULLPUPS (6-1) (2-1)
The Blazers come in losing to Lemoore 42-20 and the Bullpups lost to Redwood 24-21.
The X factor the Rangers had a tremendous game plan vs Hanford with great coverage, and dared the Bullpups to run the football. The Rangers also held the ball for long drives and keeping the Hanford offense off the field and frustrated. I’m thinking the Bullpups are going to come in pissed-off and score a lot of points. I still believe the Bullpups should be division 2.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Hanford 56 Golden West 7
FINAL HANFORD 63 GOLDEN WEST 0
LEMOORE TIGERS (8-1) (4-0) at MT WHITNEY PIONEERS (1-6) (0-2)

The Mustangs lost to Orosi 42-19.
The X factor the Eagles are looking for higher seed in the division 4 playoffs, but the schedule doesn’t help the Eagles and the Mustangs are just trying to survive. The Mustangs will have trouble slowing down the Eagles offense.
PAGMETER PREDICTION Immanuel 50 Minarets 0
FINAL IMMANUEL 47 MINARETS 0
CHAVEZ TITANS (4-5) at NORTH STARS (2-6)

The X factor this game was put together early in the week, so the real X factor is the defense. This is a tremendous division 2 game that should help in the seedings. This is a tough call.
PAGMETER PREDICTION CVC 28 Bakersfield 27
FINAL BAKERSFIELD 27 CVC 14
WASHINGTON UNION PANTHERS (4-3) at SANGER APACHES (5-4)
This game was put together on Wednesday. The Panthers come in losing to Mira Costa 36-25. The Mustangs are a very good team, and the Mira Costa game was put together late in the week. The Apaches lost to Bullard 42-21.
The X factor both teams are getting used to seeing game film on their opponents late in the week with other teams cancelling on them. The big X factor is when you go against the Apaches offense, it does take time to prepare for. The Panthers players and fans will love playing at Chuck Shidan field/Tom Flores Stadium because there is nothing like it. Come hungry because there is great food at the stadium.

FINAL WASHINGTON UNION 21 SANGER 14
SATURDAY FOOTBALL FINAL
NIPOMO TITANS (6-3) (1-3) at ARROYO GRANDE EAGLES (6-3) (3-1)
This game must be played on Saturday because Nipomo got caught up in the political flu silly contact tracing game. Very sad because the Titans were having a tremendous year. For the forfeit loss the Titans should have to give up 2 straight home games back-to-back years when playing St Joseph.
The Eagles come in beating Righetti High 39-35 in a great game. The Eagles were down by 18 points and battled back to win. Makai Puga scored the game winning TD with 41 seconds to go.
The X factor without the Titans practicing for a week, the Eagles at home have to be the big favorite. Two outstanding QBs will square off with Titans Nate Reese who is a dual threat vs Eagles Max Perrett who has thrown for 1,540-yards and 16 TD passes.
