THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FINAL SCORE
ARVIN BEARS (2-4) at WEST VIKINGS (1-4)
PAGMETER LINE BEARS -12
The Bears come into week 6 losing to Tehachapi 28-10. QB Omar Prado went 18-32 for 225 yards. Jack Kasinger caught 10 passes for 138 yards. Xavier Reynoso scored on a 2-yard TD run.
The Vikings lost at Templeton 37-7. It was 7-7 at the half and the Vikings got blown out in the 2nd half. The Vikings could not slow down the Eagles running attack.
The PAG Factor, which team will show up and play better on both sides of the ball? Both teams lack depth and that’s been tough this year on some of the PAGMETER Predictions and figuring out the depth issues in the hot weather. The Vikings should be the heavy favorite over the young Bears but the Vikings just haven’t played good Vikings football yet this year. It’s time for the Vikings to step up or the season could get away. In the loss to Templeton, it was 7-7 at the half and the Vikings got blown out in the 2nd half. In the loss to Shafter 46-6, it was 13-6 at the half so you see a pattern with the Vikings. The Bears are young, big, physical and the Bears will be very good by playoff time. The only reason why I’m taking the Vikings even though the Bears are a heavy favorite is because it is a special night for Coaching legend Dallas Grider. The Vikings have to win the game, right!!! WRONG!!! BEARS STEAM-ROLLED ALL NIGHT LONG!

PAGMETER LINE LINDSAY-4
Orosi comes off a disappointing loss to Farmersville 28-26. The big difference in the game was Farmersville got all their extra points and the Cardinals did not. QB Lance Lopez went 15-26 for 143 yards and threw a TD pass to Justin Villatoto. Andrew Camarillo rushed for 135 yards and scored a TD.
Lindsay lost to Woodlake 28-16. Samual Reyes scored a TD and threw TD to Austin Schaible.
The PAG Factor, both teams have not been inconsistent on both sides of the ball so which Cardinals team will show up in this east side rivalry? Both teams are still looking for their identity. Orosi has played the tougher schedule.
PAGMETER PREDICTION LINDSAY 27 OROSI 23
FINAL OROSI 49 LINDSAY 21

The Bearcats ran all over Righetti High 31-6. The Bearcats defense played a tremendous game. Leo Kemp rushed for 210 yards, scored 2 TDs, Tyler Luna threw a TD pass to Hayden McKanna and Ashton’s Murphy scored a TD.
The PAG Factor, Can the Bearcats slow down Cavin Ross? Can the Braves slow down Leo Kemp? Both offenses are on fire! If the Bearcats can slow the game down and keep the Braves offense on the sidelines then the red hot Bearcats will win at home. This game could come down to the final drive.

The Warriors lost to Paso Robles 31-6. The Warriors are not playing good football right now.

ARROYO GRANDE EAGLES (1-4) (0-2) at ST JOSEPH KNIGHTS (4-1) (2-0)
PAGMETER LINE KNIGHTS -21
The Eagles lost a tough one to Lompoc 32-27. Drake Missamore threw for 355 yards and 3 TD passes. (Damian Santos & Brett Pinkerton), Junior Herlihy rushed for 111 yards, Ben Walz scored 2 TDs and the Eagles never gave up which shows a team with great heart.
The Knights beat Nipomo 42-0. The Knights defense held the Titans to under 100 yards of total offense. Blake Sheridan, Aaron Fierro, each scored a TD, and Darien Mensah threw 4 TD passes (Brooks Lorencz, Collin Fasse 2, Caleb Murawski).
PAG Factor, the Eagles come in playing good football and are a very good 1-3 team. The Eagles defense will need to step up and get some turnovers like they did against Lompoc to stay in this one against a big/physical Knights team. If there is ever a game that the Knights need to watch out for, it is against the flying Eagles because they are a dangerous team and will be really good by playoff time.

The Warriors played a good game in the loss to McLane 28-21. The Warriors got down 21-0 and battled back which is a great sign of an improving team.
The Patriots beat Sanger West 33-14. Congratulations to Joe Pierro who got his first win as a head coach. Devin Douangmala rushed for 131 yards and scored 3 TDs. QB Darrian Garcia scored a TD, and threw a TD pass to Ejijah Johnson.
The PAG Factor, this is a flip of the coin game and this comes down to who can play the cleaner game for 48 minutes?

SANGER WEST HORNETS (0-5) (0-2) at MADERA SOUTH STALLIONS (2-3) (1-1)
PAGMETER STALLIONS -21
Both teams come in not playing a good game in week 5. The Stallions lost to Sunnyside and they were the walking wounded in the game. This is the most injured team that Coach Matty J has ever coached in 20 plus years.
The PAG Factor, in the last 5 years, usually when the Stallions take a loss against a good team, another strong team would be next up on the CMAC schedule but now playing in the NYL, practice is fun again and not a death march. The Stallions offense is back at the stage of not throwing the football overhand so can the Hornets stuff the line of scrimmage. Can the Hornets move the ball on offense and make this game interesting?

FINAL STALLIONS 30 HORNETS 6
ROOSEVELT ROUGH RIDERS (0-5) (0-2) at SUNNYSIDE WILDCATS (3-2) (2-0)
PAGMETER LINE WILDCATS -26
The Rough Riders come in losing to Torres 26-20. With the score tied 20-20, the Toros wins it on the last play of the game with a 25-yard TD pass.
The Wildcats beat Madera South 52-12. The Wildcats took advantage of the Stallions weak secondary. QB Tanner Wilson went 24-33 for 457 yards and 7 TD passes. Sonjay Burton caught 3 TD passes, Malachi Barnes caught (8 catches for 126 yards) 2 TD passes, Cayden Pacheco & Ethan Ros each caught TD passes and Cj Jones caught 6 passes for 114 yards.
The PAG Factor, the Wildcats are done with the tough non league schedule and will feast on the NYL. The Rough Riders were thinking they would have won some games by now but with the silly 30% rule of winning games to make the tournament, it could come down to the Pig game vs Fresno High in week 11 if the Riders make the tournament. The Riders are a big underdog this week. This is a big rivalry game and look for some huge stats from the Wildcats.

Toros beat Roosevelt 26-20. With 5 seconds to go, Toros super junior QB Jose Soriano hit
Angel Pereida scored on a 25 yard TD pass and the Toros won their first NYL league game in school history.

The Greyhounds beat Santa Maria 28-24. Trey Cooks rushed for 142 yards, scored 2 TD and Kane Cooks scored 2 TDs.
The PAG Factor, the Tigers are playing tremendous football on both sides of the ball. If the Tigers didn’t have injuries in the loss to Arroyo Grande, they might just be 5-0. The Hounds are going to need a big night to pull off the upset.

The Saints lost to Atascadero 28-24.
The Eagles beat West 37-7. Landon Miller had a great game rushing for 229 yards and scored 5 TDs.

MCFARLAND COUGARS (2-4) (0-2) at CHAVEZ TITANS (4-2) (2-0)
PAGMETER LINE TITANS -33
The Cougars lost to Wasco 45-14. Head Coach Manny Munoz is doing a great job at building a program.
The Titans beat Shafter 35-34. Israel Gonzalez scored the game winning 2-yard TD run with 4 minutes to go and the Titans hung on. Generals went for the win and Andres Rodriguez made the game winning tackle on the Generals potential 2-point play. Head Coach Jesse Ortega and his staff are doing a great job with the Titans. The Titans will be a huge contender in the playoffs.
PAG Factor, this is not a good matchup for the Cougars and hopefully soon McFarland will have a program like Chavez.

DELANO TIGERS (3-2) at KENNEDY THUNDERBIRDS (4-2) (2-0)
PAGMETER LINE THUNDERBIRDS -12
The Tigers come in off a bye and have had 2 weeks to get ready for the Delano City showdown.
The Birds beat Taft 21-0. The defense dominated all night long and leading the way was LB Bryan Guevara & DE Emiliano Herrejon each with 10 tackles. Salvador Sanchez jr scored a TD and Julian Orozco scored a TD & threw a TD pass to Jesus Flores.
The PAG Factor, both offenses are very good so which defense will play better?

TAFT WILDCATS (4-2) (1-1) at SHAFTER GENERALS (4-2) (0-2)
PAGMETER LINE GENERALS -14
The Wildcats lost to Kennedy 21-0. The offense was stuffed most of the night with 120 yards of offense.
The Generals lost to Chavez 35-34. The Italian Stallion Head Coach Jerald Pierucci is a gambler and I love it! QB Ezekiel Osborne hit Mariyon Sloan on a 13-yard TD pass with 1:25 to play to make the score 35-34 Titans. Generals went for the win and the 2-points but came up short.
The PAG Factor, with the silly playoff format, a General’s loss was not a bad thing. The young Generals are a division 5 team and because they overachieve, they could be playing in division 4. And there you have it on why these playoffs are a joke. Sometimes a loss is really a win in the long run.

EDISON TIGERS (3-2) at BAKERSFIELD DRILLERS (2-3)
PAGMETER LINE DRILLERS -4
The Tigers come in off a blowout loss to Clovis West 38-0. The Tigers could not run the ball so the Tigers threw the ball 42 times but couldn’t find the endzone against a very good Golden Eagles defense.
The Drillers got run over in the loss to Clovis North 37-14. The offense played ok but with 110 yards in penalties and two turnovers, you’re not going to beat good teams. Tybo Rogers had 200 yards in total offense and scored 2 TDs including on a fumble recovery. QB Tye Monteiro threw for 215 yards.
The PAG Factor, both teams come in thinking they are good but plenty of mistakes cost them in week 5. Two of the greatest valley historic teams are now in the middle of division 2. To be successful the rest of the way, they must clean up the mistakes. Can the Drillers slow down Vance and the Tigers passing game? Can the Tigers slow down Rogers and the running game?

FINAL DRILLERS 38 TIGERS 20
LIBERTY PATRIOTS (3-2) at CARLSBAD LANCERS (4-1)
PAGMETER LINE PATRIOTS -3
The Patriots beat Central 35-10. The Patriots defense played their best game of the year and if they play like that, the Patriots are the team to beat. The Patriots held the Grizzlies to 32 yards of rushing. Xander Chisolm with a huge play on defense with a 99 yard pick-6. Cameron Dangerfield rushed for 107 yards on 13 carries, Cole O’Brien scored a TD, and Jalen Hankins scored 2 TDs. QB Jace Nixon threw a 48 yard TD pass to Kresean Kizzy.
The Lancers beat Mission Hills of San Marcos 16-10. QB Julian Sayin threw for 293 yards and 2 TDs.
The PAG Factor, when I first looked at this game, I had to take another look at the big match up. The Lancers are really good especially after the 30-day sit out rule. Leading the way is Junior QB Julian Sayin who is 6-1, 185 lb and a 5-Star QB with offers from Georgia, Michigan, LSU, Auburn, Texas and counting. Last year he threw for 2,769 yards and 34 TD passes. If Jayden Mandal from Buchanan had a good game against the Patriots defense, what the heck is Sayin going to do? There is Junior DB/WR Justus Woods who has offers from BYU & Arizona. The Lancers also have some new transfers that are now eligible with senior TE/WR Zack Marshall who is 6-4, 220 and coming from Santa Fe Christian, who has an incredible attitude, never gets tired and works relentlessly. Also there is senior 6-1, 185 lb,DB/WR Justin Johnson, St. Augustine High School who has unlimited potential. I’m still taking the Patriots at home. The Patriots made some adjustments in the Buchanan game in the 2nd half and probably would have beaten the Bears in the lightning-gate game but we will never know. The Patriots are a much better team now since they stopped the silly QB rotation. This should be a great game!

BAKERSFIELD CHRISTIAN EAGLES (2-3) vs TULARE WESTERN MUSTANGS (2-3)
PAGMETER LINE EAGLES -3
Both teams come off byes and both teams are ready for a great 2nd half of the season.
The PAG Factor, this is a big for both teams. The Eagles have played a much tougher schedule and will be battle tested. The Mustangs so far are the tweener team, they can beat the weaker teams and have struggled against the better teams. Put the Eagles on the better team category list.

ROSAMOND ROADRUNNERS (1-5) at CALIFORNIA CITY RAVENS (1-4)
PAGMETER LINE RAVENS -3
The PAG Factor, both teams play in the desert league but this is not a league game. These teams struggle to find games so why not play a home and away series. I love the idea.
Both teams need a win.

CHOWCHILLA TRIBE (3-2) at DOS PALOS BRONCOS (1-4)
PAGMETER LINE TRIBE -3
The Tribe beat Yosemite 54-0. The Tribe shut it down at halftime. Joey Garcia returned a kickoff for an 89 yard TD. Dwayne Hemphill and Maleek Cobian each scored 2 TDs. Davian Stephenson, Andre Pulliam and Frankie Fuentes each scored a TD.
The young Broncos come in off a bye and each week they find a new way to lose in the last minutes of a game. Once the Broncos figure it out, watch for DP to be good by playoff time.
The PAG Factor, this is one of the great north side rivalries especially when it was the Redskins vs Broncos. Chowchilla was a lot more intimidating when they were the Redskins. The Chowchilla Administration gave in to the corrupt Woke nation.
Throw out all the records when these teams and towns show up. Can the Broncos finish 48 minutes of good football? The Broncos would love to get their first win against the Tribe/Redskins.

RIDGEVIEW WOLF PACK (2-3) at NORTH STARS (2-3)
PAGMETER LINE STARS -6
The Pack with a much needed bye. The Stars also come in off a bye and have had 2 weeks to think about the loss to San Luis Obispo.
The PAG Factor, the Pack is playing way too tough of a schedule and it might be time to dummy down the schedule to build back some Wolf Pack confidence?
The Stars are a contender and need to win this game to prove that they are a contender.

KERMAN LIONS (4-1) vs CLOVIS EAST T WOLVES (5-0)
PAGMETER LINE T WOLVES -17
The Lions come in off a bye and the T Wolves beat Tulare Union 49-34. Lamaj Travis rushed for 117 yards and scored 4 TDs. Caleb Slocum scored 2 TDs. QB Tyus Miller went 12-19 for 182 yards and threw a TD to Carson Sandoval.
The PAG Factor, the Lions come in feeling good after crushing Sunnyside before the bye. The T Wolves offense is similar to the Sunnyside offense except the T Wolves can run the football.
The Wolves offense is averaging 50 points per game and has a very exciting offense. The schedule is perfect for a young team to get confidence because at the end of the day, players love to win and having MOJO is everything. The T Wolves are based in division 2 and have played by far the easiest division 2 schedule. The TRAC league is starting next week and we will see how the T Wolves match up.
The Lions should be bringing a big crowd to Lamonica and will be fired up. The Lions will play anybody and the tough schedule starts this week followed by CVC & Kingsburg. The Lions offense has to think of this game like a tennis match and they must hold serve and score on almost every drive especially when the Wolves are averaging 50.

The Vikings come in off a bye. The Vikings are a machine on both sides of the ball and leading the way is RB/LB Trace Jackson.

The Aztecs come in off a bye and finally got healthy and the Eagles lost at Firebaugh 14-7. RB Will Henderson rushed for 183 yards and scored a TD on 32 carries.
The PAG Factor, can the Azrecs slow down Mr durable Will Henderson? The Eagles average about a TD a game and not a throwing team. Aztecs senior QB Juan Ceja is back from injury. If the Eagles are going to win at home they must score some TDs. The good news for the Eagles, every time I pick against the Aztecs, they win. I’m picking the Aztecs.

The Pioneers come off a bye.
The PAG Factor the Pioneers have played a much tougher schedule than the Pirates and might be 4-0 with the Pirates schedule so will that help the Pioneers beat the Pirates? The Pirates are a very physical team and they don’t care who they play because they just want to run you over.

The Trojans beat Rosamond 28-0. The young Trojans defense took care of business and leading the way was Nate Alvarez with 8 tackles. Elias Trevino scored 2 TDs and Joel Trevino scored a TD. Darrion Rodriguez rushed for 88 yards.
The PAG Factor, the Trojans graduated so many from a fantastic team and this team is getting better and better every game.
The Golden Bears are also very young and leading the way is sophomore QB Landon McKee.
For the G Bears to win on the road, they need to have the offense to have a good game.

The PAG Factor the Panthers offense is very good and if the Panthers play good defense like they did in week 5, then the Panthers will be a contender.
The Marauders have played a tough schedule and are looking to be more consistent on both sides of the ball.

BISHOP UNION BRONCOS (5-0) at RIM OF THE WORLD FIGHTING SCOTS (Lake Arrowhead) (3-2)
PAGMETER LINE BRONCOS -4
The Broncos game was canceled last week because Trinity Classical Academy was frightened to play the bad-ass Broncos. Trinity said they couldn’t find officials for Friday, couldn’t find a stadium for Saturday and did not want to Travel to Bishop. The Knights are a bunch of pussy’s.
The Fighting Scots got a big win over Redlands East Valley 42-22. Zach Gross rushed for 244 yards and scored 4 TDs.
The PAG Factor, and it starts with defense. Can the Broncos slow down Gross because the Fighting Scots are not a throwing team. Can the Fighting Scots slow down the Broncos offensive machine who can throw it and run it?
This should be a good game.
