THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL FINAL SCORES
SANGER WEST HORNETS (0-10) (0-7) at SUNNYSIDE WILDCATS (8-2) (7-0)
PAGMETER LINE WILDCATS -35
THE PAG FACTOR: The Wildcats are the NYL Champions after beating McLane 36-6. QB Tanner Wilson is now over 3,000 yards passing. If the Cats defense plays like they did in week 10, the Wildcats will be tough in the Division 3 playoffs. The Wildcats will get to play a day early and then try to figure out who they might play in the division 3 playoffs.
This will be a tough matchup for the young Hornets. A star is born with freshmen RB/slot Josh Pleasant who is going to be very good for the next 3 years.
PAGMETER PREDICTION WILDCATS 60 HORNETS 7
FINAL WILDCATS 57 HORNETS 14
Tanner Wilson threw for 322 yards, 5 TD passes and Tanner broke Trent Tompkins’ regular season passing record with 3,459 yards. Congratulations to Tanner Wilson
PARLIER PANTHERS (0-10) (0-7) at RIVERDALE COWBOYS (5-5) (2-5)
PAGMETER LINE COWBOYS -35
THE PAG FACTOR; Panthers Head Coach Drew Halstead is trying to build a program and the Cowboys are getting healthy again. The Cowboys last year were moved into division 5 which was soooooo wrong! This year the Cowboys look to be a solid division 6 team and will be a team that can win it all.

SOUTHWEST YOSEMITE – RIVER
FRONTIER TITANS (6-4) (2-2) at CENTENNIAL GOLDEN HAWKS (8-2) (2-2)
PAGMETER LINE GOLDEN HAWKS -4
THE PAG FACTOR: This has the makings to be a great game!
There’s plenty of crazy factors for the last 2 spots in division 1. CENTENNIAL HAS LOCKED UP A DIVISION 1 SEED BECAUSE OF WINS OVER REDWOOD AND FRONTIER.
PAGMETER GOLDEN HAWKS 27 TITANS 23
FINAL GOLDEN HAWKS 27 TITANS 21
DINUBA EMPERORS (5-5) (3-2) vs MISSION OAK HAWKS (5-5) (1-4)
PAGMETER LINE EMPERORS -7

FINAL EMPERORS 38 HAWKS 21
SOUTH YOSEMITE – HORIZON
MIRA MONTE LIONS (3-7) (1-2) at FOOTHILL TROJANS (2-8) (0-3)
PAGMETER LINE LIONS -3
THE PAG FACTOR:This is the first actual playoff game of the year because the winner is in and the loser goes home. Can the Trojans offense get it going? The Lions are now healthy and if the defense steps up, the Lions will be a contender in the division 6 playoffs.
PAGMETER LIONS 23 TROJANS 20
FINAL LIONS 27 TROJANS 20
OROSI CARDINALS (4-6) (4-3) at ORANGE COVE TITANS (2-8) (2-3)
THE BATTLE FOR THE O
PAGMETER LINE CARDINALS -14
THE PAG FACTOR: This is the Battle for the O and always a great rivalry! OC has to win or the season ends. Can the Titans slow down the Central Section leading rusher Andrew Camarillo who broke his own school record rushing for 436 yards on 41 carries & 3 TDs in the win over Woodlake. Andrew is 3rd in rushing in the state and 20th in the nation with 1,974 yards and by the way Andrew has a 3.5 GPA. The Cardinals are peaking at the right time.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS FINAL SCORES
BULLARD KNIGHTS (3-7) (2-3) vs EDISON TIGERS (6-4) (3-2)
PAGMETER LINE TIGERS -5
THE PAG FACTOR:The Crosstown Classic is one of the best rivalries in the Central Section for ever, The Tigers lead the all time series 32-30 since 1959…. Now that’s a rivalry!
If the young Knights want to win the Classic they must be able to pound the ball with junior Nick “Stubby” Stubblefield and Sophomore Devon Laney who is a load. Can the Knights defense slow down one of the best QBs in the Central Section with senior Ya’J Vance who set a Tigers record just 2 weeks ago throwing for 8 TD passes.
It doesn’t matter who is playing good or bad coming in, this is the CROSSTOWN CLASSIC and it will be a hard hitting game.
PAGMETER PREDICTION TIGERS 30 KNIGHTS 24
FINAL TIGERS 37 KNIGHTS 14
GARZA GUARDIANS (4-6) (1-4) at MADERA COYOTES (3-7) (0-5)
PAGMETER LINE GARZA -3
THE PAG FACTOR: Somebody is getting their first CMAC win.
The big difference in this game is the Guardians have sophomore QB Caleb Matthews who is hot. Guardians Head Coach Yosef Fares comes back to Madera and will coach against his old team and his old assistant Coach Kenny Paolinelli.
This game should be played at Madera South and let Madera South-Torres game be played at the big House with the huge crowd expected. Madera vs Garza will have a very small crowd.
Big brother Madera would never let that happen.
PAGMETER PREDICTION GUARDIANS 30 COYOTES 27
FINAL GUARDIANS 20 COYOTES 6
SANGER APACHES (5-5) (4-1) at MEMORIAL PANTHERS (8-2) (5-0)
PAGMETER LINE PANTHERS -28
THE PAG FACTOR: This is for the CMAC Championship and the Panthers are the defending CMAC Champions.
The Apaches are a completely different team from the first half of the year and now playing with tremendous confidence but now they go against the Panthers machine. The Apaches crushed the Knights 42-6. RB Jacob Gonzalez scored 4 TDs. The Panthers are loaded on both sides of the ball and the defense is really special. The Apaches can’t afford mistakes/turnovers or the Panthers will roll. The Panthers need a big win and are hoping for a top 4 seed in the Division 1 playoffs. The Apaches are hoping for a home playoff game in the Division 2 playoffs.
PAGMETER PREDICTION PANTHERS 42 APACHES 14
FINAL PANTHERS 56 APACHES 21 (PANTHERS CMAC CHAMPIONS)
FARMERSVILLE AZTECS (5-4) (4-3) at CORCORAN PANTHERS (8-2) (6-1)
PAGMETER LINE PANTHERS -19
THE PAG FACTOR: The Panthers are the East Sequoia league Champions!
This is the perfect example of how the over achieving Panthers who are 8-1 and right now are stuck in the middle of division 4. The Panthers can compete in division 4 with the best but they shouldn’t have too. The Panthers should be in division 5 because they are a division 5 team. Every year a team will get screwed in this playoff format and this year it might just be Corcoran.
A win and the Aztecs will get a high seed in the division 6 playoffs. This is the perfect time for the Panthers to get healthy and get ready for the playoffs. After the big win last week over Strathmore, don’t be shocked if the Aztecs pull off a win.

FINAL AZTECS 16 AZTECS 12
LINDSAY CARDINALS (4-5) (3-3) at STRATHMORE SPARTANS (7-2) (5-1)
IT IS THE 101 MEETING
PAGMETER LINE SPARTANS -21
THE PAG FACTOR:The Spartans come off a tough loss to Corcoran in the East Sequoia league championship game. The Spartans right now are a low division 4 seed. A Cardinals win and they could be a high division 6 seed.
PAGMETER PREDICTION SPARTANS 34 CARDINALS 13
FINAL SPARTANS 49 CARDINALS 20
GRANITE HILLS GRIZZLIES (1-9) (0-7) at WOODLAKE TIGERS (6-4) (4-3)
PAGMETER LINE TIGERS -35
THE PAG FACTOR: The banged Tigers come in losing to Orosi. The Tigers lost their outstanding junior QB Vinny Duran to injury a month ago and If the Tigers can get back to a kick-ass physical running attack, they could be a sleeper team in the division 5 playoffs. Last year the Tigers got hot in week 11 and had a tremendous playoff run.

FINAL TIGERS 44 GRIZZLIES 6
EL DIAMANTE MINERS (1-9) (1-4) at GOLDEN WEST TRAILBLAZERS (4-6) (2-3)
THE BATTLE FOR THE SADDLE
PAGMETER LINE TRAILBLAZERS -19
THE PAG FACTOR: The Miners lead the all-time Battle for the Saddle series 10-6. The game hasn’t been played since 2019 because VUSD got caught up in the overrated pandemic corruption. The Miners have lost 11 straight games and the Blazers have lost 2 straight games. The Miners season will end and the Blazers really need a win to get some MOJO heading into the playoffs.
This is always a great rivalry and if the Miners can pull the upset, it will bring momentum into 2023.
PAGMETER PREDICTION TRAILBLAZERS 20 MINERS 7
FINAL MINERS 14 TRAILBLAZERS 12
PORTERVILLE PANTHERS (9-1) (4-1) vs MONACHE MARAUDERS (2-8) (1-4)
52ND GRANITE BOWL
PAGMETER LINE PANTHERS -21
THE PAG FACTOR: This is the 52nd edition of the Granite Bowl and Monache leads the all-time series 31-19-1. The Marauders have to win the 52nd edition or the season ends. The Panthers are looking for the No 2 seed in the division 3 playoffs.
PAGMETER PREDICTION PANTHERS 28 MARAUDERS 7
FINAL PANTHERS 55 MARAUDERS 7
REDWOOD RANGERS (8-2) (5-0) at MT WHITNEY PIONEERS (4-6) (2-3)
THE COWHIDE BOWL
THE PAGMETER LINE RANGERS -13
THE PAG FACTOR: This is the 67th Cowhide Bowl game and Redwood leads the series 37-21-1 and you know the Ranger players remember last year’s Pioneers win 13-7. The Pioneers have won the last 2 Cowhide games. These players have all grown up together and have been battling each other since middle school so throw out the records.
Both defenses are very good so can the Pioneers offense have a good night?
The Pioneers are looking at a low division 3 seed right now and if the Rangers win, the Rangers are looking at the No 11-12 seed in division 1.
PAGMETER PREDICTION RANGERS 26 PIONEERS 13
FINAL RANGERS 28 PIONEERS 0
BORON BOBCATS (5-5) (3-1) at BISHOP UNION BRONCOS (9-0) (4-0)
HDL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
PAGMETER LINE BRONCOS -29
The winner is the HDL Champion and the Broncos have owned the HDL the last 2 years.
The Bobcats beat Kern Valley 7-0 and the Broncos beat Rosamond 37-6. Albert Cano scored on 2 rushing TDs, and a Safety on special teams. Cain Omohundro caught a TD pass from Boden St. Marie and ran for a TD. Jason Mullner scored on a TD run.
Both defenses are very good but the Broncos have the big edge with the offense on Broncos Homecoming night.
PAGMETER PREDICTION BRONCOS 44 BOBCATS 14
FINAL BRONCOS 37 BOBCATS 6 (HDL CHAMPIONS )
CALIFORNIA CITY RAVENS (1-8) (0-4)at ROSAMOND ROADRUNNERS (1-9) (1-3)
PAGMETER LINE ROADRUNNERS -3
THE PAG FACTOR: Both teams played each other in a non league game earlier this year and the Ravens won at home 20-13. Both teams will wrap up the season after this game.
PAGMETER LINE ROADRUNNERS 20 RAVENS 18
FINAL ROADRUNNERS 14 RAVENS 13
ARROYO GRANDE EAGLES (4-6) (3-4) at PASO ROBLE BEARCATS (7-3) (5-2)
PAGMETER LINE EAGLES -2
THE PAG FACTOR: This is a very interesting game with 2 powerful offenses. The Eagles beat Santa Ynez 62-21. QB Drake Missamore scored 2 TDs and threw 2 TD passes each to Brandon Butler and Caleb Clark. Ben Walz rushed for 96 yards and scored 2 TDs. Junior Herlihy rushed for 92 yards and scored a TD.
The Bearcats beat Nipomo 34-12. Connor Bowman rushed for 146 yards and scored 2 TDs. Leo Kemp rushed for 76 yards, scored on a rushing TD and caught a TD pass from Tyler Luna.
Can the Eagles front-eight on defense slow down the Bearcats Wing T? The Eagles defense did a good job vs the Pirates running game but the Bearcats running attack is light years better than Santa Ynez running game. The Bearcats are hoping for a home game in the division 2 playoffs and the Eagles will be tough in the division 3 playoffs.
PAGMETER PREDICTION BEARCATS 34 EAGLES 32
FINAL BEARCATS 35 EAGLES 14
SANTA YNEZ PIRATES (5-5) (2-5) at LOMPOC BRAVES (7-3) (4-3)
PAGMETER LINE BRAVES -13
THE PAG FACTOR: The Pirates lost to AG 62-21. QB Luke Gildred threw for 354 yards and 3 TD passes.
The Braves lost to St Joseph 48-34. The Braves had the lead at the half 21-20 and it was tied 34-34 in the 4th quarter but the Braves defense couldn’t hold the Knights rushing attack. QB Cavin Ross threw for over 350 yards and 5 TD’s in the loss. Rudy Elizondo had 178 yards receiving and 3 TD’s while Nelson Maldonado had 132 yards receiving and caught a TD and Monte Ortiz had 3 catches for 55 yards and a TD. Ross also had a 55 yard punt inside the 50 and on 12 snaps, at LB had three tackles.
The Big X factor is the Braves defense and can they slow down the Pirates passing attack? The Braves will be a dangerous team in the playoffs that nobody will want to play.

FINAL BRAVES 48 PIRATES 14
RIGHETTI HIGH WARRIORS (2-8) (1-3) at NIPOMO TITANS (0-10) (0-4)

FINAL WARRIORS 19 NIPOMO 7
ST JOSEPH KNIGHTS (9-1) (7-0) at MISSION PREP ROYALS (7-3) (6-1)
PAGMETER LINE KNIGHTS -11
THE PAG FACTOR: This is for the Mountain League Championship and it’s the 2 best teams on the Central Coast squaring off. The BIG X factor is the defensive side of the ball and who will play better. This is a very interesting match up in this game because they are so good on both sides of the ball. Mission Prep could be tougher against the run. Look for both teams to possibly get in heavy sets and pound it. Can the Royals slow down the big passing threat with WR Collin Fasse? There’s no secret and every team knows Fasse is the guy that the Knights love to throw the ball to and he still gets open. Mission Prep is a very disciplined team especially when it comes to penalties. If both teams line up and pound it then it could come down to the QB play with Knights Senior Darien Mensah and Royals Senior Colby White. Can the Royals slow down Mensah because he’s dangerous with his legs?

FINAL KNIGHTS 49 ROYALS 21 (KNIGHTS ARE THE MOUNTAIN CHAMPIONS)
HOOVER PATRIOTS (1-9) (1-6) at MCLANE HIGHLANDERS (5-5) (4-3)
PAGMETER LINE HIGHLANDERS -14
THE PAG FACTOR:The Patriots are trying to build a football program like what Highlanders Head Coach Andrew Pancotti is doing at McLane. The Highlanders are hoping for a home game in the first round of the division 5 playoffs.

ROOSEVELT ROUGH RIDERS (3-7) (3-4) vs FRESNO HIGH WARRIORS (2-7) (2-4)
THE 93RD LITTLE BIG GAME
PAGMETER LINE ROUGH RIDERS -9
THE PAG FACTOR: The Little Big game this year is Big Big Game because the winner will qualify for the playoff/tournament. In the overall series, Fresno High has won 46 games, Roosevelt 44 wins & 2 ties.

FINAL ROOSEVELT 33 WARRIORS 12
MADERA SOUTH STALLIONS (6-4) (5-2) vs TORRES TOROS (7-3) (6-1)
THE 1ST ANNUAL RODEO BOWL
PAGMETER LINE TOROS -5
THE PAG FACTOR: The baby brother of Madera (Torres) has the chance to beat middle brother (Madera South), already has beaten big brother (Madera) and will be the Madera City Champion with a win.
Can the Stallions slow down outstanding junior QB Jose Soriano? Last week Jose threw for 4 TDs in the shutout win over Fresno High 35-0.
The Stallions beat Hoover 35-21. The Stallions rushed for 300 yards.
Can the Toros slow down the Stallions power running attack of Angelo “Thunder” Moreno and Erik “Lightning” Cervantes?
For the Stallions to finish 2nd in the NYL, they must control the line of scrimmage with a physical running attack along with no turnovers/penalties. A win and the Stallions could be moving into division 4 along with Torres.
Last year when the Stallions were the home team vs the Madera Coyotes in week 11 in the Battle for the Saw, but the Madera administration said there is zero chance that their favorite child Coyotes will sit on the visitors side of Matty J Stadium so the game was played at the big house at Madera HS and the Madera Coyotes acted like it was a home game which was so wrong and a big insult to the Madera South football team. You build the Stallions a beautiful new stadium, and the Stallions are excited to show it off against big brother Madera but the Stallions got screwed.
We are now in week 11 this year and the 1st annual Rodeo Bowl game is going to be HUGE with a BIG CROWD and needs to be played at the Big House at Madera. This is a home game for the Torres Toros, so the Stallions will have to sit across from their home side. The Crowd will be electric for the Stallions vs Torres in a packed house.
Down the street, Graza at Madera will have a tiny crowd and should be played at Madera South.
The good news is that Madera, this is all temporary because Madera is building a new stadium at Torres as we speak and it could be ready very soon. Hey Fresno Unified, see what Madera is doing….every school will have a stadium on campus.

CARUTHERS BLUE RAIDERS (8-2) (7-1) at FOWLER REDCATS (7-3) (5-2)
THE RED-BLUE BOWL
PAGMETER LINE REDCATS -2
THE PAG FACTOR: This is always a battle when these 2 teams get together. This is the toughest prediction of week 11 because if they played 100 teams, it might be 50-50.
Last week, Hunter Babb rushed for 312 yards and scored 5 TDs with the win over Chowchilla 49-12.
The Redcats beat Yosemite 42-7. Sophomore QB Bubba Smith went 9-14 for 263 yards and 5 TDs. Nickolas Mendoza caught 3 TD passes and Vincent Rivera & Keenan Dick each caught a TD.
Which defense will make the big stops when needed? Which offense will pick up the big first down on 3rd down? This game could come down to the final drive. I’m taking the home team because this is a TOUGH CALL!
PAGMETER PREDICTION REDCATS 25 BLUE RAIDERS 24
FINAL BLUE RAIDERS 49 FOWLER 21
LIBERTY MADERA HAWKS (10-0) (7-0) at CHOWCHILLA TRIBE (5-5) (4-3)
PAGMETER LINE HAWKS -35
THE PAG FACTOR: The Hawks are the Northwest Sequoia league champions and should be the No 1 seed in the Division 4 playoffs.
Last week the Hawks beat RIVERDALE 56-21. The defense played outstanding, only giving up 1 TD. Caleb Sisco rushed for 202 yards and scored 3 TDs. The Italian Stallion Vince Oberti rushed for 143 yards and scored a TD. Brody Harlow rushed for 83 yards and scored 2 TDS.
The Tribe lost to Caruthers 49-12.
The Tribe are on the border of division 6 and could win it all in D6 so an ugly loss isn’t so bad. The Hawks could be shutting it down early in the game to get ready for the playoffs.

YOSEMITE BADGERS (2-8) (2-5) at MINARETS MUSTANGS (2-8) (2-5)
THE BATTLE FOR UPPER 41
PAGMETER LINE BADGERS -10
THE PAG FACTOR: The Badgers have to win the Mountain battle of 41 showdown to get in the division 6 playoffs. It’s already getting chippy with these players who all know each other. This will be a hard hitting game.

ATASCADERO GREYHOUNDS (6-4) (5-1) at PIONEER VALLEY PANTHERS (4-6) (3-3)
PAGMETER LINE GREYHOUNDS -9
THE PAG FACTOR:The Greyhounds are the Ocean League Champions after beating Cabrillo 45-28. Trey Cooks rushed for 198 yards and scored 3 TDs. Diego Real rushed for 67 yards and scored 2 TDs.
The Panthers lost to Santa Maria 15-9.
The Greyhounds are looking at division 3 and should be anywhere from 8-11 seed. The Panthers are looking at 6-8 seed in division 5.

CABRILLO CONQUISTADORES (2-7) (0-5) at MORRO BAY PIRATES (3-6) (2-3)
PAGMETER LINE PIRATES -21
THE PAG FACTOR: The Conquistadores have lost 7 straight games and must win or the season ends. The Pirates are the defending division 6 champions and will be in division 5 this year and a home playoff game.

FINAL PIRATES 58 CONQUISTADORES 12
TEMPLETON EAGLES (6-3) (3-2) at SAN LUIS OBISPO TIGERS (7-2) (4-1)
PAGMETER LINE TIGERS -17
THE PAG FACTOR; Can the Eagles offense step up on the road? The Eagles are a borderline division 4-division 5 team so the Eagles don’t need to be excited about beating SLO but unfortunately that’s the silly playoff format we are given. The Eagles will be tough to beat if they get into division 5. The Tigers are hoping for a home playoff game in division 3.

FINAL TIGERS 35 EAGLES 28
CHAVEZ TITANS (6-4) (3-2) at KENNEDY THUNDERBIRDS (7-2) (5-0)
THE BACKYARD BOWL
PAGMETER LINE TITANS -2
THE PAG FACTOR: It will be the outstanding Birds defense vs the outstanding Titans offense. Can the Birds offense score enough with some long drives? If Kennedy’s D can stifle the Chavez O then we got a ball game. The Birds offense isn’t as dangerous as it has been in recent years, but the D is lights out especially the way they confuse the offensive line with different looks and will bring plenty of pressure. The Titans offense can score on any play.
If the Thunderbirds win they are the SSL Champions. If the Titans win, it should be a 3 way tie with Taft. Chavez forfeited a game to Taft and didn’t even try to play it and it’s not fair to Taft because it was so late in the week for Taft to reschedule a game.
This will be a battle! Which defense will step up.

HIGHWAY 43 TAKEDOWN
Since 1933, Shafter, 46 wins, Wasco 44 wins and 5 ties. Now that’s a rivalry!
PAGMETER LINE GENERALS -3
THE PAG FACTOR: This is one of the best rivalries in the Country and only 8 miles away. Both teams have played up and down for most of the year. What’s crazy is whoever loses will definitely be a division 4 team in the playoffs.

TAFT WILDCATS (8-2) (4-1) at DELANO TIGERS (4-5) (1-4)
PAGMETER LINE WILDCATS -14
THE PAG FACTOR: With Delano School district being such a mess, it might be time for Taft to think about getting out of the South Sequoia league. Taft should get a forfeit win over Chavez because Chavez canceled so late in the week. That’s a no no and not fair to Taft. It’s a shame because Chavez, Kennedy and Delano are great football programs but have to play in a weak school district.

SOUTHWEST YOSEMITE – RIVER
STOCKDALE MUSTANGS (2-8) (0-4) at GARCES RAMS (4-6) (2-2)
PAGMETER LINE RAMS -28
THE PAG FACTOR; The Rams are playing their best football at the right time after playing a killer schedule. It would be nice if the Rams were playing in division 2 but because of the tough schedule, the Rams will get penalized and play in division 1.
The Rams come in beating Centennial 24-14. The Rams were down 7-0 at the half and Coach Golla gave one of his great pep talks because the Rams got after it out scoring the G Hawks 24-7 in the 2nd half. Rams junior QB Jordan Gallegoz playing against his old team rushed for 119 yards, scored a TD and Logan Slaton scored 2 TDs.
Mustangs played their best game of the year beating Independence 20-14.

THE PAG FACTOR-Meet the most up & down streakest teams in the Central Section. Just when you think both teams have turned the corner they both hit a wall.
The Scots lost to BCHS 48-21 and the Wolf Pack beat Bakersfield 46-43.
Which team will finish the regular season at 5-5 & 2-2 in league? This has the makings to be a very good game.

TRI-COUNTY – KINGS CANYON
SELMA BEARS (1-9) (0-4) at KINGSBURG VIKINGS (9-1) (3-1)
90TH FIRE HYDRANT GAME
PAGMETER LINE VIKINGS -35
THE PAG FACTOR: If only somebody could have persuaded the Selma administration that the plandemic was a wank/corrupt and If Selma could have been like Kingsburg, this game would be a battle. But instead the Bears are starting over and the Vikings are a powerhouse.
The Vikings beat Reedley 34-0. The Vikings defense is so good. Trace Jackson rushed for 178 yards and scored 2 TDs. Conner McFall and Wyatt Boyd each caught TD passes from Ethan Winslow.
The Vikings will be the No 2 seed in the division 2 playoffs and will probably shut it down early to get ready for next week.

PAGMETER LINE GRIZZLIES -5
THE PAG FACTOR: The Broncos with a big win over Buchanan 28-21. The Broncos are kicking some ass on both sides of the ball right now and a completely different team from week 1. It starts with the offensive line and it is working. Andrew Chavez rushed for 111 yards and scored a TD.

Can the Broncos kick ass again and against the red hot Grizzlies? The Broncos defense needs to put pressure on the Grizzlies passing attack to win. The Grizzlies are a streaky team and will score quickly and the Broncos can’t afford turnovers.

CLOVIS COUGARS (4-6) (1-4) vs CLOVIS WEST GOLDEN EAGLES (9-1) (4-1)
RANGER RIDER GAME (CW leads the series 27-22 since 1980)
PAGMETER LINE GOLDEN EAGLES -20
THE PAG FACTOR: The Golden Eagles come in with plenty of questions after getting staughter to Central 45-0. Were the Golden Exposed or was it a fluke?
The Cougars beat Clovis East 56-34. Freshman QB Deagan Rose threw for 318 and 4 TD passes. It’s week 11 and Rose is not a freshman any longer because he’s playing like a veteran. This kid is something! Jaden Carrillo caught 2 TD passes, Jacob Saldate, and Brenden Nauheimer each caught TDs.
The Golden Eagles are heavy favorites but after the bloodbath at Central, the Cougars will battle the mentally wounded Golden Eagles. The offense struggled so can the Cougars match up with the Golden Eagles offense? The young Cougars are playing tremendously on offense.
It’s going to be very interesting to watch the rest of the way so the big question for the Golden Eagles, was the thrashing a fluke or a wake up call. Stay tuned
