Mike Says: Kennedale has won 2 of the last 3 in this series and has played a pretty tough schedule so far. The problem is that Alvarado is better than anyone they have faced so far. The Indians RB Wayne Onderdonck has already ran for 1,058 yards and scored 11 TDs. (he had 364 vs. Waco Robinson and 281 vs. Bridgeport). Their defense has only given up 60 points this year. They are led by LB Alex Gentry (60 tackles, 2 sacks), LB Marcus Villarreal (51 tackles), DL Kenny Adams (33 tackles, 3 sacks) and DB Tyler Bates (19 tackles, 4 INTs). The INDIANS win 28-17!!!

Chris Says: The difference maker in this matchup is defense.  Both teams are putting up great numbers on offense (Kennedale 198 - Alvarado 172) but Kennedale has given up twice as many as Alvarado on defense.  The Alvarado defense should slow down that high powered Wildcat offense, yet still be able to put up some good points themselves.  Alvarado INDIANS take this one 31-14!!!
