Game of the year next week 7pm Oct. 20th at Conquest Stadium. Eastlake vs Del Valle...Get your popcorn ready! It's going to be a barn burner!!
Eastlake in a high scoring affair someone’s defense will need to make a stop.
It's going to be a nail biter!! Really hope the Falcons can pull it off!
Both Coaching staffs are predictable, don't adjust and not very creative. I pick Eastlake due to having better Athletes in a close one.
Del Valle’s defense vs Eastlakes offense is going to be the difference maker in this game. If DV can shut down Jones and Eastlake like they did Hankins and Parkland then they’re good. Eastlakes defense is the weak link of the team. They’re allowing an average of 21 points a game while Montez and his offense are averaging 33 points a game. Both teams are going to put up points, ain’t no stopping that. It’s gonna come down to defense and I’m giving the edge to Del Valle’s stingy D who is allowing only 12 points per game(held Hankins to 40 yards in the first half and 1td for the game). My prediction Del Valle 42 Eastlake 21
Eastlake has a couple of tall stud wide receivers, it’s going to be an interesting match up with the Secondary of DV who had 3 int’s against the good receivering core of Parkland.
I watched both teams play Parkland and I believe Del Valle will win. Del Valle is better. Hankins got over 200 yards on both teams but Del Valle looks a bit stronger on defense. The Del Valle offense is the difference.
"Game of the Week"
Eastlake RB Jones left the last game due to injury and may miss this game against De Valle.
I have Del Valle in a close game.
Finally canutillo is out of the picture. It seems like they are always a thorn in 2-5A's Side. Eastlake will beat them but they never have beaten them. Del Valle already put them away. So good. Nothing against canutillo, but I'm glad they are done.
Is it Friday yet?!! Can’t wait for the “Game of the Week”...
My prediction for this game
Eastlake 35 Del Valle 24
If eastlake wins and canutillo wins till the season is over there might be a tie for district
Winner doesn’t take district it depends if dv beats them then they do but if eastlake wins and canutillo wins this next 3 games (Parkland, riverside, and Eastlake) there might be a tie for district
Contrary to what others have predicted, I predict this will be a low scoring game with both defenses stepping up.
My predicted final for this game
Eastlake 42 Del Valle 31
Del Valle by a touchdown or two.
DV's freshman and JV teams beat Eastlake. Varsity needs to finish the sweep.
I already saw this game. I traveled to the future. Del Valle won 35 - 7
13-7 Del Valle halftime
14-13 Eastlake 10 min left 4th
Del Valle with the Win!!
Final DV 25 Eastlake 21
Congrats to all 3 DV squads for sweeping the falcons!! Season is not over yet! Stay Focused!!
Garbage Defense for Eastlake at the end. They deserved to lose. You let DV score with seconds remaining twice. Once last year and again this year. Looking like Dallas giving Montez a drive at the end. Disappointment all around. This should've never happen. Defense Coordinator what where you calling at the end. Terrible, humbling lost by Eastlake.
Congratulations Del Valle!! Way to fight it out boys. Good luck the rest of the season
I wish Del Valle would have found a way to come back when they played Americas... Oh well, a victory in a crucial district game is better than a W to a non-district opponent.
This crow is delicious I was watching the game online and wow what a game congrats DV! I know we will have two great schools representing in the playoffs well.
Everyone is a critique and apparently you all have outstanding coaching skills!! These kids played and fought hard and for you to make the comment that they deserved to loss, just goes to show the type of person you are! I've read a few posts this morning regarding Eastlakes loss from DV fans that are disgraceful! I'm from the 79907 area and that's not who we are!
I disagree. This falcon loss was more on the offense than the defense. The defense gave the offense plenty of opportunities to win the game and they couldn't capitalize. The defense got a pick-6 for a 90 yard TD that put falcons up 21-13. Then the defense had another critical pick in the 4th qtr that our offense went 3 and out. You got to put up some points or at least keep the offensive possession more than a minute in a half.
The problem is the falcon offense has always been about big plays rather taking chunks at a time, which gets exposed when play solid defenses such as DV. Same thing happened with Chapin. And carries over to the playoffs, where defenses get better. In my opinion, falcons have the best two running backs in the district. Two tall receivers (#7 for the long ball and #19 who rarely gets targeted). #15, who is like a beasley who is definitely under utilized. Play selection needs improvement. Implementing other offensive options in addition to the fast paced spread would also help especially with those running backs. If they continue on same plan, they will be doomed again come playoffs.
I know there are still some games left to be played but DEL VALLE DISTRICT CHAMPS!!!!
Congratulations Del Valle
That game was a great HS game. Hats off to both teams. Much respect going around for each other from both groups. Hope both do well in play-offs.
