My Final Thoughts:

The Mountain View Vikings will try to run this ball and control the clock.  They would have the advantage over many other teams with their big O-Line, however Covina's Line will neutralize the line play.  So Covina's returning experience of playmakers should put Covina in a good position in this game.  Covina has the ability to run the ball and control the clock themselves.
