Game Preview: Carlsbad vs. Artesia

Carlsbad is coming off a huge win over Alamogordo last week. Can they pull off a second upset this week?

Artesia vs. Carlsbad

The Bulldogs are the class of the 4A division and they have a legit claim that they might be the top team overall.  Carlsbad has talent to compete with teams and they proved that last week in a big upset win.


Carlsbad has two great players in QB Nathan Clark and RB Caleb Bellah, both of these two young men can really play.  Last week they pulled off a huge upset beating 5A power Alamogordo who was undefeated and ranked in the top 10 in the 5A ranks.  That win has really given this Carlsbad team a ton of confidence. 


Artesia has been a machine all season.  They have had big wins and played well against tough competition in Rio Rancho and also Hobbs.  Tons of things have been said about Landry Jones but here's some love to the lineman for the Bulldogs.  Anyone who knows anything about football will tell you it all starts with the big boys up front.  Payton Kirkpatrick and company have been great all season.


That big win last week gave Carlsbad confidence that they can play with just about anyone.  Alamogordo was a very good team but this week they face a great team in Artesia.  Artesia 42 Carlsbad 20.
