Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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!!

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

Eastlake in a high scoring affair someone’s defense will need to make a stop.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

It's going to be a nail biter!! Really hope the Falcons can pull it off!

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

Both Coaching staffs are predictable, don't adjust and not very creative. I pick Eastlake due to having better Athletes in a close one.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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

Side note:
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.

EPTX Everybody is entitled to their own personal opinion,However it’s obvious to me that you haven’t been following Eastlake’s team!!!!!! Reality is Eastlake’s team strength is its defense this year… if you do a little digging you’ll find that this average that you point out about their defense is a reflection of the two’s being in the game in the 4th quarter.. But that’s neither here nor there!!!!!! This is going to be a defensive battle in my opinion … And the best offense that night will win ... historically Del Valle has not done well with Eastlake’s team speed in the past … Last year it was Eastlake weak defense that caused a loss against Del Valle and it also caused a lot of close games with the rest of the District but it is what it is !!!! I know Del Valle has a strong team this year , I’m not blinded to that fact ….. But I also know that Eastlake’s defense is what carries this year’s team… So will see how things play out next week!!!!! Looking forward to that game!!!!! And Good luck to both teams!!!

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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.

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.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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.

Canutillo is done like Del Valle and Eastlake will be done when they play the first out of town teams they play in the playoffs.

Of course he would say that but the way that right leg twisted didn't look good at all. He might be able to play but I guarantee he's not a 100%. I'm guessing a high ankle sprain or a sprained knee.

That's true either way Eastlake is not lacking in that department not only do they have Avina but they have Donacio who is doing well for a freshman.

I also read where his dad posted to EPG to be careful with their wording. Something to do with EPG using the word boy. It's amazing how some people are easily offended these days.

Ought to be a great game

Who wants to bet me that we won't be seeing any new EP Gridiron pictures or highlights of that Eastlake player or of the Eastlake team anywhere on EP Gridiron and their youtube, twitter or facebook pages from here on out???

No way am I taking that bet. I've been coming to this website and forum for years to know that EPG is not run and maintained by teenagers but by adults with Military, decorated Veterans, on staff who serves the ball right back at you in a positive way or negative way depending how you served it to them. Thanks but no thanks Eastsider for that will most likely happen.

FYI I saw 2 EP Gridiron guys at the Hanks and Eastlake game and I don't see a video in EP Gridirons youtube page on that game but I do see a Montwood and Franklin video which was the game played after that Hanks and Eastlake game at the sac. Just saying.

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

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

Contrary to what others have predicted, I predict this will be a low scoring game with both defenses stepping up.

Canutillo is done like Del Valle and Eastlake will be done when they play the first out of town teams they play in the playoffs.
and the 6a teams will be done by the first round just saying 6a because you are from the east

DV's freshman and JV teams beat Eastlake. Varsity needs to finish the sweep.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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.

Exactly!!! Eastlake coaches got out coached. They ran man coverage at the end and DV coaches took advantage and ran crossing routes to create traffic jams and it worked like a charm. Another thing was why bring in the tall #7 WR in at Cornerback and move him over to the side where DV loves to throw? His height would had helped.

Another thing, why does Eastlake like running end arounds, shuffle passes, jet sweeps so much. They could've just ran the ball up the middle and wore out DV. The QB for Eastlake is an athlete more than a QB. I think he would be a better receiver. He gets happy feet and tried to run without keeping his eyes down field.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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!

All their talent already graduated the only one left with talent on this years team is Avina.

Re: Eastlake vs Del Valle, Winner takes the District Championship....

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.
