Mike Says: The key to the game will be the Jaguars high flying offense vs. the Warriors defense. The Flower Mound pass/catch combo of QB Marshall Williams and WR Chas Taylor has been tough on defensive coordinators. Williams is now 54 of 97 for 921 yards and 8 TDs. His favorite target Taylor has 16 receptions for 434 yards and 6 TDs. The tough Arlington Martin defense is led by LB Jordan Avery who has 31 tackles during their 2 games. Defense wins out. The WARRIORS win 35-31!!!

Chris Says: At the end of the day, the big difference in these two teams is clearly the defense.  Arlington Martin has one - Flower Mound doesn't.  Arlington Martin wins this one 48-20!!
