Another big weekend for high school football teams




Palo Alto (2-0) at San Benito (2-1), 7:30 p.m. San Benito is averaging 34 points a game and allowing 13.6 while Paly is scoring at 20.5 and giving up 8.0 per game. Vikings' QB Christoph Bono is averaging 152.5 passing yards per game and junior RB Dre Hill is averaging 87 yards rushing. Paly needs another big defensive effort, along with enough offensive spark, to defeat the Haybalers.

Hillsdale (3-0) at Gunn (1-1), 7:30 p.m. The Knights come in averaging 35.3 points a game while allowing just 5.3 points per outing. Gunn needs to get its offense untracked in order to have a chance. The teams had a common opponent in Yerba Buena, which lost to Hillsdale (41-0) and Gunn(39-0).

Pinewood (1-0) at Clovis Christian (0-3), 7 p.m. The Panthers managed 16 points in their opener last week, but will probably need more to remain unbeaten.


Sacred Heart Prep (3-0) at Scotts Valley (0-3), 2 p.m. The Gators are averaging 43 points a game while allowing 18. Colin Terndrup leads an explosive backfield with 136.3 rushing yards per game. Scotts Valley gave up 236 yards to Stanford recruit Amir Carlisle of King's Academy last weekend.

St. Elizabeth (0-2) vs. Menlo (2-1) at Woodside High, 7 p.m. With senior QB Robert Wickers averaging 265.5 passing yards per game, the Knights continue to be explosive. Menlo is averaging 30.6 points a game, but that could go up because St. Elizabeth (Oakland) is allowing 46.5 points a game.
