Mike Says: Mart almost pulled it off last week vs. Rogers in one of LSG's games of the week. Goldthwaite's loss also came in one of our games of the week vs. San Saba. Goldthwaite will once again rely on a strong running game. Through 4 games they have 1237 rushing yards and only 224 passing yards. They averaged 335 rushing yards in their 3 wins and only 232 vs. San Saba in their loss. RB Gary Head (434 rushing yards), QB Tyler Horton (337 rushing yards 8 TDs), OL Colton Mitchell and OL Sergio Vasquez head up that offense. On defense, LB Mitchell (41 tackles), Head (20 tackles 2 sacks) and Horton (13 tackles 2 INTs) shut opponents down. This may not be the last meeting between these two this year. Goldthwaite gets some revenge after falling to Mart in the state championship game last year buts its not the same. The EAGLES win 28-20!!!

Chris Says: Mart came so close last week that I don't even really consider it a loss.  Okay, I am sure the boys from Rogers disagree there, but I gotta be me - right?  Goldthwaite's loss to San Saba was one of those games where the fans convinced me that San Saba could pull off the victory - it worked out for me that time.  It very well could be a sign of the apocalypse - Goldthwaite losing two Games of the Week in one season...  but I have to go with my gut and my gut tells me a) the apocalypse will NOT happen this weekend.... BUT Goldthwaite WILL lose.  MART wins 28-21!!!
