Riverside King at Corona Centennial – It appears as though four schools are putting themselves into position for only two spots for the state championship this year. Centennial (3-0) is certainly one of the four. However, some feel should Westlake and the winner of the PAC-5 go undefeated; they would be the two teams playing in the state championship. If the Huskies continue playing the way they played against Chaparral – I see no way they can be left out. The Huskies crushed Chaparral on the Pumas’ home field last week 45-12, avenging last year’s CIF semifinal loss. The Huskies continue their revenge trail and are hungry for another blowout victory in their first Big VIII league contest of the season. Michael Eubank, the dual-threat QB, leads the Huskies passing for 166 yards a game and rushing for 98 yards a game, not to mention finding the endzone eight times so far. RB Barrinton Collins is also a forced to be reckoned with rushing for 9.4 yards a carry and seven touchdowns. Riverside King (2-1) has a little bit of momentum coming into this game after posting a huge fourth quarter come-from-behind victory against La Sierra. Star RB Todd Handley was held in check on the ground, but found other ways to get involved to help his team to victory. The running back, who is averaging 115 yards a game on the ground, was limited to 57, but he completed a huge touchdown pass to Alex Bruno on a fourth and 15 to lead the comeback, and then scored the game winner on a 50-yard touchdown reception. Unfortunately for the Wolves, they will take on too strong of a Centennial team.
