This may be the most evenly matched NCS game in DI. Against common opponents, both teams lost to Amador and Beat Dougherty Valley this season. In their one meeting earlier this season, Las Lamos won by 2 in a relatively high scoring game. Clayton Valley has a better overall record, but (at least to my eye), Las Lomas has played a tougher schedule. Laxpower has them statistically even on power ratings.

I predict Las Lomas by 2. I think playing the tougher schedule this year will have them more prepared for this game, even though they will be playing at Clayton Valley.
What if the hokey-pokey IS what its all about?

In the early game this year LL came out clearly disorganized offensively and defensively. Before they could settle down, CV had run up a 5 or 6 goal lead. I think it was 7- 1 early inthe 2nd qtr. LL then started playing with much more composure and slowly reeled CV back in and eventually took over. For most of the game, however, LL was clearly out playing CV and the only question was whether there was going to be enough time to catch CV. If CV doesn't score early and often, LL will win by 4 - 5.

This was a much better game than the final score indicates, as the half time score was 5-4 in favor of Las Lomas. Clayton Valley is developing a terrific program, but the Eagles aren't terribly deep, and in the second half the Knights turned it up and pulled away. Las Lomas goes on to take on De La Salle's Spartans, next Saturday.
