Game Night: Championship Edition

Paraclete (12-1) at Monrovia (11-2)

The Spirits have won 12 in a row, the Wildcats have won nine straight. These are two excellent football teams. Paraclete prepared for this game by matching up against Dorsey in non-league play. M-Town played Ayala, St. Francis, South Hills in its own schedule upgrade. Monrovia can put together four good quarters of football, something they don’t very often, then they win. Clete has shown it can take a punch, punch back, and not back down to anyone.

Prediction: Paraclete 24 Monrovia 23

Mission Prep (11-1) at Rio Hondo Prep (11-1)

The Royals only loss of the season was to Bishop Diego, which just went down in the Northwest semifinals last weekend against North Torrance. The Kares are playing in their 21st title game, they’ve won 13. Mission Prep, out of San Luis Obispo, is playing for the first championship in the school’s 50 year history. RHP is very good…Mission looks great this second time around.

The Royals beat the Kares 47-14 on August 31st. That gap will close, but the victor should still be the same.

Prediction: Mission Prep 28 Rio Hondo Prep 17
