seriously,
my picks have been so bad lately; whatever i say
GO OPPOSITE !!!! LOL LOL

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

MW was able to contain Fields enough last season to get a close win. But that was last season. This season MW has struggled with teams with good s good running game. Coronado ran the ball well against them in the first half of the game.

If they are unable to contain Fields, Americas will win.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

This match up favors Americas on both sides of the ball

Montwood won't be able to stop the running game

Americas defense is probably the best in 1 6A

Trailblazers will control the clock and get enough stops to keep Rams in check

Do not see how Montwood can pull this one off

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Abracadabra!!!

Montwood beats Americas in OVERTIME again just as last year.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Americas has more to worry about then MW does. Eastwood had them in panic mode until Americas defense bailed them out. Eastwood literally gave the game away due to turnovers. Which means MW needs to play a turnover free game.

Yes but consider Eastwood went in there averaging almost 40 a game. They were held down to half that. It doesn't matter at what point it happened, it happened! This was their lowest scoring game

MW can't win this one and if they do it'll be a helluv of an upset.

But that's ok.....Rams in a good spot. After this game worry about closing out the season with Eastwood. That game will be very competitive and could go either way.

Congratulations on a good season so far. Finish strong!

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Defense will win this one and Americas got the best defense in the District....

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Keys to Victory:


Montwood:

- Control the clock
- Limit turnovers
- Take advantage of miss-matches in the secondary
- Hit Americas with a balanced Run/Pass attack
- Run a 5-3 defense
- watch out for miss-directions and trick plays.

Players to Watch: Andrew Fernandez, Evan De Anda, Tyreese Andrus, Tury Cepeda, Brandon Casas, Phillip Frutig, and Aaron Apodaca


Americas:

- Control the clock
- Establish the running game early
- Exploit MWs secondary
- Exploit MWs offensive line
- Run a 4-3 defense with 2 CBs, 2 Safeties and 3 LBs. If all else fails blitz, blitz, and more blitz.

Players to Watch: Josh Fields, Jacob Monarez, Kolton Linderman and Tremaine Henderson.

And the T-Birds gave the game away to MW.
MW QB and his 2 receivers are playing street ball and it worked.

What is with you people about Coronado giving the game away! Americas was in he same predicament and people said that Americas finally woke up to win he game, but Coronado gave he game to MW! Street ball or not MW outplayed you the 2nd half, so stop with the moral victory already yo lost!

Americas vs. Montwood is gonna be a very good and important game for both teams. Do I believe MW can win? Of course I do! People say that there is no way MW can beat Americas, which they said the same thing about El Dorado and Franklin and MW won. These boys are scrapers that hate to lose and find ways to win the game, even with questionable play calling at times. Montwood always seems to play at the level of competition that they're up against. Americas is a very good and dangerous team, so mental errors and turnovers will be the deciding factor in this game. We have to try and stay perfect with a well balanced run and pass game plan. Best of luck to both teams Friday night. Go Rams!!!

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Montwood will win this game in close one

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Game of the Week:


If MW plays a mistake free game and is able to execute their offense while at the same time contain Fields, it will be an easy win for them. If not, we will see the opposite take place, with America's defense and Fields having a big night. That's pretty much the gist of it. However, MW has shown the ability to come from behind and win games this season. But it's not the ideal position that teams want to be in, especially when the other team has a RB like Josh Fields that can pound the football all night long, while taking a lot of time off the clock along the way.

Bottom Line: The team that wants this game the most will win!

You are doing a disservice saying that Coronado gave the game away. They played their butts off and in any game there is a winner and a loser but in games such as this one both teams played their hearts out and gave it 100% To say they gave it away you are saying that somehow Coronado eased up somewhere or intentionally let Montwood win the game. Give both teams credit for doing what they did. Coronado was up and tried to win the game. Montwood was down and also tried to win the game. Stop saying they gave the game away and just give credit to both teams for giving their all on the field.

MONTWOOD

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

The numbers don't lie:

Americas -- PPG 33 -- P Allowed PG 18

Montwood -- PPG 36 -- P Allowed PG 33

By the numbers, the Blazer's have a 2 TD advantage; if Americas takes care of the ball, no reason they shouldn't walk away with a win. 38 Seniors on the team with lots of big game experience.

Americas may also have a slight advantage in their preparation for this game. The Blazer's played Del Valle in their 1st game of the season; same school head coach of MW came from. They run similar, if not identical, offenses; different athletes same schemes.

Looking forward to a great game, lots of great athletes on both teams.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

The numbers don't lie:

Americas -- PPG 33 -- P Allowed PG 18

Montwood -- PPG 36 -- P Allowed PG 33


Numbers do lie.

You can't go by numbers like that especially in high school football.

Montwood clearly had a tougher non district schedule than Americas plus Montwood has already played and also even beaten El Dorado and Franklin when Americas has not played El Dorado and Franklin. Americas non district schedule was ehhh so so and they haven't even played El Dorado and Franklin.

So your points per game are skewed because of the competition they have faced up to this point.

Montwood is already battle tested and ready for any team.

I'm not saying I'm rooting for Montwood. I don't have a dog in this football fight I'm just pointing out a fact and that fact is that numbers indeed do lie.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Montwood verus Americas is the GAME OF THE YEAR!!!!

I will be at this one for sure.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

It doesn't matter who wins this game cuz El Do's taking the District title once again this year. 😂

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Elvis ur an idiot you need montwood to lose because of your loss to them. Also dont sleep on coronado they played the best 2 teams in the district tuff and they have their backs against the wall.

I'm with Guru! Great breakdown! And I will take Montwood!. Americas is one dimensional, Coronado exposed that. Americas will fall just like America in this next election
Lol just playing

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

I have a feeling that Americas will do the unexpected and open up their bag of tricks against MW tomorrow night.

So your saying they haven't shown their whole offense??? They lost to Rio Rancho on purpose then? Come on man!!!

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Americas one dimensional? Did you folks not see the Eastwood game? If not for way too many dropped passes the QB throws for many more yards. I do not have a dog in this fight and I am really going to be "Switzerland" and remain neutral. Americas is not one dimensional and MW needs to establish a good running attack to keep their defense off of the field.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

No...what I mean is they will try to re-invent themselves on offense. It's no secret that Josh Fields is the heart and soul of their offense. But how they use him maybe slightly different from what we have seen throughout the season. Anytime Fields is in the game...whether it's on special teams or with the offense he is a threat. But I'm primarily talking about trick plays. So my advice to MW is to be prepared for anything and don't sleep on Jacob Monarez and Tremaine Henderson.

Elvis ur an idiot you need montwood to lose because of your loss to them. Also dont sleep on coronado they played the best 2 teams in the district tuff and they have their backs against the wall.



Uhh no. El Do doesn't "need" anything from anyone. Both Ameicas and Mw are 4-0. El Do is 4-1. So one of them (meaning mw or americas) has to loose today. Meaning one of them will become 4-1. Then El Do has Americas next week. Meaning El Do Will play the 5-0 winning team and knock americas off if El Do gets the win for first place obviously. Or a 4-1 losing Americas team and then it'll be a 3 way tie for 1st place. But there's still one district game for all three of those teams. Easiest one is i think El Do's opponent Pebble hills. Mw still has to play Eastwood and Americas still has franklin i thi1sw

So lets just see what happens. El Do will take care of what needs to be done regardless of the situation. ;)

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Still has Franklin i think*

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Another scenario could be mw winning the americas game and improving to 5-0 district. And if El Do knocks off Americas next week. Will be tied for first. But then again, there's still one district game for all three of those teams. Easiest one is i think El Do's opponent Pebble hills. Mw still has to play Eastwood and Americas still has franklin i think. So lets just see what happens. ;)

Montwood feeds of this!! No one had them contending for DC and Montwood so far has proven them wrong and when they WIN today, they'll have Pebble Hills beating Montwood next week too!! But non of that matters, what matters is how many more W's you got than the other guys! Game Day boys! Good luck to both teams!! Go Rams!!!

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Last week the Times had Eastwood beating Americas, no respect for the Blazers. The more I read the post on this site the more I realize you all haven't watched these teams play or don't do your research. Tonight's game will be well played by both teams, special teams and turnovers may decide it. Americas D will show up, MW offense will score some points, 1st one to 28 points will win the game, you heard it here 1st. MW has to jump out to an early lead or they will have a hard time winning the game. Americas D has shut out teams in the 2nd half....including Rio Rancho, the best team in NM, and Eastwood.

Winning team will score in high 20's low 30's and losing team will be in mid 20's. Again, I'm sure 1st one to 28 wins the game. DEFENSE WILL WIN IT!!!

There is no need to do research. All I have to do is go against El Paso times picks.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Halftime Score:

Americas 17
Montwood 14

1st Half Observations:

1. Defense wins games and right now the MW defense is having a hard time stopping Josh Fields.

2. MW #7 is finally getting exposed as a weak safety.

3. MWs offense had a slow start but they managed to put 14 points on the board in the first half.

4. Americas so far have been successful with a balanced attack on offense running and passing the football.

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Turnovers killing MW. Americas up 31-21

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Way to go Blazers nothing sweeter than seeing Sad Green faces

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

MW has struggled with stopping the run all season and tonight was no different.

Americas on the other hand played solid defense especially when it counted the most.

MW had several opportunities to take control of the game but with each drive came a turnover.

It was a big night for Josh Fields.

Congrats to the Trailblazers!

Re: Game 8: Montwood Vs. Americas

Congratulations Blazers on the W. Americas was clearly the better team tonight. Montwood got OUT COACHED!! It was a great game and Montwood had several missed opportunities. One thing that I can't understand is what the heck were the coaches thinking? I mean they ran the ball 6 or 8 times the whole night. The run game was literally non existent tonight, it was all pass and the pass was off too!! Run the freaking ball!!
