Casa Grande picked to beat Santa Rosa

iner (3-2) at Analy (4-1)

Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

Last week: Piner defeated Petaluma, 26-17. Analy beat Sonoma Valley, 44-14

Notable: The winner of this SCL marquee matchup will likely win the conference title … "I expect it will be a four-quarter battle," Tigers coach Dan Bourdon said. "In Noel Hernandez, they have one of the top two quarterbacks in the league." … The Prospectors prefer to throw the ball and that was Miramonte's game plan when the Matadors beat Analy on Sept. 13 … "This will be a good test," Bourdon said. "The key for us is to have an effective pass rush." … Piner coach John Antonio knows his team faces a tough task. "Analy's the best team we play this year, no doubt," he said. "They'll create some problems for us, especially on defense. We'll have to work our butts off." … Antonio said his team matches up well and they are healthy and ready … This is Analy's homecoming.

The pick: Analy
