California Week Five Predictions

The Swami had a banner week in week four, only missing six games. However, this is the time of year when things start getting tough because so many comparable programs go head to head. Lets take a look at week five in California.

California Week Five Predictions


October 5 (Friday)

NorCal Football Association

DeAnza 27   Marin 20

Two struggling teams with a combined record of 0-8.  Someone has to win. 

San Mateo 31  Laney 28

Two teams having their best seasons in a while.  I like CSM's offense to take it.

October 6 (Saturday)

NorCal Football Association

Redwoods 34  Siskiyous 20

Redwoods is a balanced team.  Siskiyous is struggling.

Fresno 41  Butte  14

There couldn't be a worse game for Chris Bruhn to have to sit out, but that is what he must to agianst one of the state's best teams.

Yuba 30   Delta  24

John West will lead the 49ers offense against a Delta defense that has struggled.

CCSF  52  Sacramento 27

Sac City's defense has been porous this season.  That's not good against one of the top offense's in the state.

Foothill  34  Mendocino 21

Foothill must rebound from a tough loss to Fresno.  I think they'll get it together and show why they beat Sac City.  Waye Terry can hurt you.

Reedley 38  Los Medanos 18

This is a rebuilding year for Los Medanos.  Reedley is a good team...Lots of talent.

Diablo Valley 31   Sequoias  20

DVC has a nice little offense.  I think the defense can hold off Sequoias enough to win.

Sierra 37    Monterey Pen. 31

Two good offenses.  Could go either way.  I like Sierra to pull it out by one touchdown.

Santa Rosa 41  Chabot 20

Santa Rosa has a great squad. They should be okay against a Chabot team that has some talent, but isn't quite over the hump.

West Valley 34   San Jose 31

Great game, but I think WVC is on a roll after their tough start.  Could go either way.

Modesto 38  American River 17

Modesto is a fine team.  Lots of talent on both sides of the ball.  Expect the Pirates to be a top team in NorCal all season.

Merced 27  Cabrillo  14 

Merced should beat a struggling Cabrillo team. 

Contra Costa 35   Gavilan  20

Contra Costa looks for 5-0.  Gavilan hasn't done much this season, so the Comets should get their wish.

West Hills 34  Hartnell  24

West Hills is better than their record shows.  Expect them to beat a Hartnell team that is a little down this year.

Western St. / Mtn. Division

Citrus 20  Santa Barbara 14

Could go either way, but SBCC's offense has struggled too much for me to think that they will score enough to win.

Bakersfield 42   E. Los Angeles 17

Its been a rough year for the Huskies.  Expect BC to get things going, unlike a week ago.

Moorpark 27  Ventura 20

Toss up in Ventura County.  I like Moorpark to continue the momentum they started last week.  But Ventura could easlily take it.

LA Valley 24   Glendale 21

Also a toss up.  I like LA Valley to pull it off, thanks to some great talent at the receiver positions.

Western St. / Pacific Division

Compton 45   LA Southwest 20

Compton is a great team. Don't be fooled by their record.  LA Southwest was exploited by Canyons last week, a passing team like Compton.

LA Harbor 27  W. Los Angeles 17

Harbor has a lot of talent.  Should be able to get past WLAC.

Allan Hancock 54  LA Pierce 6

Um...This one speaks for itself.

Canyons 52  Santa Monica 14

Like above....COC should be able to move the ball on SMC with ease.

Foothill Conference

San Bernardino Valley 28  Victor Valley  27

Great game.  I like the athletes at SBVC to pull it off.

Grossmont 38  Mt. San Jacinto  24 

Two good teams.  I think Grossmont's offense makes the difference.

Southwestern 20  Antelope Valley 17

Another close one.  Watch for SWC to show why they are a good team year in and year out.

SD Mesa 29  Desert 20

Two up and coming programs.  Watch for Mesa to win, but not by much.  Could go either way.

Mission Conference

Fullerton 31    Long Beach  21

I like Long Beach, but their pass defense concerns me.  Fullerton is one of the best kept secrets in SoCal.

El Camino 34  Saddleback 24

El Co may have gotten over the hump with the win over Palomar.  Watch them roll from here.

Riverside 27   Golden West 13

RCC is a good team.  Should be able to get past an improving GWC team.

Cerritos 24     Santa Ana  20

Great game.  I think Cerritos just has a little more depth.  Lots of talent on the field for this one.

Palomar 30     Mt. San Antonio  28

Can the Comets rebound from their loss to El Co?  I think so.

Pasadena 38   Orange Coast  20

Pasadena has been rolling. Should continue, but OCC has surprised more than one team in recent times.
