THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FINAL SCORES
GARZA GUARDIANS (3-4) (0-2) vs BULLARD KNIGHTS (3-4) (2-0)
PAGMETER LINE KNIGHTS -16
The Guardians come in losing to Sanger 24-13 and the Knights beat Madera 35-14. Josh Madrigal threw 2 TD passes each to Blake Mathieu and Nick Stubblefield. Stubby rushed for 126 yards and Devon Laney rushed for 99 yards and scored 2 TDs.
The PAG Factor, the former Knights long time assistant coach at Bullard Yosef Fares takes on his old coach Don Arax. Yosef’s dream is to be an assistant coach in the NFL soon so we will see how long he stays at Garza. A great match up will be the young Guardians offense vs the young Knights defense. Both teams are very young.Both teams have outstanding young QBs with Guardians sophomore Caleb Matthews vs Knights sophomore Josh Madrigal.

SOUTHWEST YOSEMITE – RIVER
STOCKDALE MUSTANGS (1-6) (0-2) at LIBERTY PATRIOTS (5-2) (2-0)
PAGMETER LINE PATRIOTS -35
The Mustangs lost to Centennial 33-6.
The Patriots beat Garces 13-0. The Patriots defense is very good! Cole O’Brien connected with Xander Chisolm on a 61-yard TD pass and Jalen Hankins scored on a 48-yard TD run.
The PAG Factor, the Patriots are still f*%king around with this QB rotation crap and as we all know a team has never won it all rotating QBs. Rotating QBs will also divide a team. Now you might ask, the Patriots don’t rely on the QB play to win games but just book it that the QB play will be needed once the playoffs start.
Another question you might ask is why is it a big thing? The Quarterback position is the most important position in all of sports. A QB will lose the RHYTHM of the game if he has to sit and watch. RHYTHM IS EVERYTHING!
Most of the coaches that make the call to rotate QBs have never played the actual QB position and will never understand.
To the Patriots and if you want to repeat, pull the band aid off and pick a QB already.

The Bullpups lost to Dinuba in overtime 36-30. QB Cayden Muir threw a TD to Kourdey Glass and Glass also scored on 2 rushing TDs.

The Apaches beat Garza 24-13 and the Tigers lost to Memorial 42-20.
The PAG Factor, can the Apaches slow down Tigers senior QB Ya’J Vance and can the Tigers slow down the Apaches running attack? The Apaches will struggle against the Tigers passing game and the Tigers will struggle up front slowing down the Apaches running attack. This game could come down to the final seconds….

MEMORIAL PANTHERS (5-2) (2-0) at MADERA COYOTES (3-4) (0-2)
PAGMETER LINE PANTHERS -35
The Panthers beat Edison 42-20. Brandon Ramirez scored 3 TDs. Tommy Nix had a pick-6, and Ramon Ruiz returned a kickoff for a TD and picked up a fumble for a TD.
The Coyotes lost to Bullard 35-14.
The PAG Factor, the Panthers are a heavy favorite over the Coyotes. The Panthers defense might just be the best in the Central Section. The Panthers can easily pound the ball like they did in the win over Edison with Brando. The problem is the Panthers threw 3 passes the entire game. The Panthers are going to steamroll the CMAC but the big question will be for the Panthers, do they want to win the CMAC only or battle for their first Central Section Championship in school history? The Panthers have won plenty of lower division championships but never in the big boy division of D1. If SJM wants a CMAC Championship, Brando is the answer, pound it and don’t change a thing. If SJM wants to have a chance to win a Central Section Championship against teams like Clovis West, Liberty, Central, Buchanan, St Joseph, Clovis East….then this is the time to work on being balanced on offense. The big boy teams of division 1 will make you bring your A game. Running Brando 99% of the time will be an early exit in the division 1 playoffs.

The Rough Riders lost to McLane 13-7.
The PAG Factor, can the Rough Riders defense slow down the Stallions running game? The Riders offense has struggled with finding an identity. At times they try to run the Vince Branstetter power offense from the last 3 tears and other times it’s a spread attack. If the Riders want to make the playoff/tournament, they must win the last 3 out of the last 4 games. Until the Riders can finish a game, it’s tough to pick them.

PAGMETER LINE TITANS -2
The Rams lost to Liberty 13-0. The defense battled but the Rams offense made plenty of mistakes.
The Titans lost to Ridgeview 47-46 in overtime. The Titans went for the win but came up short on the 2-point play. QB Malakhi Statler went 27-32 for 371 yards with 3 TD passes, and scored 2 TDs. Devin Cockren caught 10 footballs for 137 yards and a TD.
The PAG Factor, the Rams have played the toughest schedule by far in the Central Section so it’s time to find out if that helps or hurts the Rams. If the Rams don’t win 3 games in this silly playoff/tournament format, the season will end in a sad way.
Can the Rams offense find some magic soon because it has struggled all year long. Were the Titans looking ahead to the Rams and forgot to pay attention to Ridgeview?
This is a very interesting game.

The Bears lost to Clovis West 29-22. Michael Runnels rushed for 138 yards and scored 2 TDs. QB Jayden Mandal went 17-36 for 224 yards and scored a TD.
The Grizzlies beat Clovis 27-21. QB Dayton Tafoya went 18-33 for 285 yards and 4 TDs. Noey Felix caught 2 TDs, Imari Conley and Braylen Hall each caught a TD pass.
The PAG Factor, and I still can’t get over the Bears thinking of running cover zero with .35 seconds to go against Clovis West and leading 22-21. The Bears country-dumb thinking was to go man-to-man defense against the 3 best receivers together in the state. The loss is the kind of thing that teams don’t get over.
The Grizzlies beat Clovis but did not look good in doing it. It took a 12 man defense to stop the Cougars at the goal line.
Which team can forget about last week and move forward??

PAGMETER LINE GOLDEN EAGLES -14
The Golden Eagles beat Buchanan 29-22.With .35 seconds to go,outstanding Junior Marshel Sanders got wide open and Ryan Markarian hit him on a 40 yard TD Hail Mary pass and CW pulls off a huge win over the Bears.The Golden Eagles coaching staff had to be laughing when the Bears lined up with no deep safety.
The T Wolves beat Clovis North 39-35 on their own Hail Mary. Ty Miller hit Xavier Garcia on a 40 yard TD pass .10 seconds to go. The Week 7 Player of the Week Ty Miller went 22-28 for 432 yards and 6 TDs. Carson Sandoval caught 7 balls for 213 yards and 3 TDs. Xavior Garcia caught 4 balls for 116 yards, 2 TDs and Tristan Kircher caught a TD.
The PAG Factor, PAGMETER had the Golden Eagles ranked No 2 to start the year and many thought I was crazy. The big X factor in this game is the Golden Eagles defense is much better than the T Wolves defense and that will be the difference.

The PAG Factor, this is the toughest game to pick this week. The Tigers only loss was a blowout to Clovis West. In the only loss for the Hawks they got crushed by CVC.
Both offenses are real good so the The big X factor is the Hawks defense is better than the Tigers defense.

PAGMETER LINE EAGLES -7
The Chieftains beat Laton 59-36. QB Aaron Irvine went 24-32 for 330 yards and 5 TDs.Jeremy Rue rushed for 138 yards and scored 2 TDs. John Mccave caught 2 TDs and Logan Kilbert caught 3 TDs.

Joshua Chinn caught 3 passes for 147 yards and scored 3 TDs. Sam Copeland, Jude Sheppard and Joshua Kubota each caught a TD.
The PAG Factor, these are the two of best 8-man teams by far and both need to be playing in 11 man very soon. The defending 8-man champion Eagles are the professional 8 man team and the Chieftains played some 11 man games during the year which makes the game planning tough.
Both offenses are explosive so the the big X factor is the Eagles defense has the big edge,
The Chieftains have to think of this game like a tennis match and must hold serve. That means the offense needs to score on almost every drive because you know the Eagles don’t practice punting much.
