La Mirada (Suburban #1) at Arcadia (Pacific #2)
Game Time: 7pm
Where: Arcadia High School
When La Mirada has the ball: Super Freshman Kevin Dillman leads a young Matadores team into hostile territory. Dillman does have a good receiver in Dallis Shipp who he can throw to. Andy Gramajo has had a phenomenal year at running back as well.
When Arcadia has the ball: Pick your poison on how you want to be beat. The Apaches have weapons all over the field. Just ask Bonita who had a good game plan and still were on its heels for most of the game. Myles Carr has his choice of receivers in Taylor Legace, Alex McElwee, and Robby Haines. The running back spot has three dangerous runners that rivals West Covina in Jake Medel, Sheldon McKinley and Rodney Arnett.
Player to Watch: Jake Medel (Arcadia RB) – He glides and when seemingly a hole is gone, Medel still finds a way to get through it.
Matchup to Watch: Arcadia OL/DL vs La Mirada OL/DL – The “Bubbas” for each team look different. Although both boost a 300-pounder, the Apaches are a bit lower in weight than the traditionally robust Matadores.
