Quarterback Chance Nolan will need to hook up with WR Cameron Whatley and running back Demarco Prewitt and get the Wildcats back on track.

The Golden Bears are 3-0 and one of the most improved football programs in the Southwestern league with the arrival of Coach Rick Mey last year. Temecula Valley has a new attitude and crushed Hemet 38-0 last Friday night.

Elsinore home against Summit

Elsinore is led by quarterback Marc Castro and running back Anthony Reyes who has gained more yardage in the air and on the ground than any other Tiger. Elsinore’s defense will have to toughen up this weekend as Summit can score a lot, and quickly.

The Sky Hawks are 3-0 and coming off a overwhelming 42-7 victory over Alta Loma. Summit’s powerful offense is averaging 43 points a game.

 Heritage at Etiwanda

The Patriot defense seems to get tougher every game and Heritage is looking for their first shutout.

After losing their first two games, the Eagles rebounded and defeated Riverside Poly and then sneaked past Oak Hills 31-30 last week.
