Douglas Tigers @ Damonte Ranch Mustangs

Douglas comes in undefeated, 3-0, and are one of the better storylines of the young season here in Northern Nevada. Damonte made too many mistakes in the loss to Truckee, and this game is a chance for both teams to take a step in the right direction. Douglas has confidence, they are averaging 29 points per game while allowing 3. Damonte will score more than 3 points, but can they score enough to outlast Douglas? Damonte wins a close one at home

Michael Reeves Prediction: Douglas 42-28

J. Ray Dockter's Prediction: Douglas 28-21

Brady Raggio's Prediction: Damonte Ranch

Lynn Ault's Prediction: 31-28 Damonte Ranch

Wooster Colts @ Spanish Springs Cougars

Spanish Springs comes in needing a win badly, sitting at 0-3 they host Wooster and will get that win

Michael Reeves Prediction: 35-14 Spanish Springs

J. Ray Dockter's Prediction: 48-24 Spanish Springs

Brady Raggio's Prediction: Spanish Springs

Lynn Ault's Prediction: 45-7 Spanish Springs

Truckee Wolverines @ Spring Creek Spartans

Truckee comes in with momentum, after knocking off Damonte

Ranch last week. Spring Creek has yet to score this season, having been outscored 55-0. Truckee boasts an impressive array of offensive weapons, the last two times these teams have met, Truckee has averaged 40 points per contest.

Michael Reeves Prediction: Truckee 45-7

J. Ray Dockter's Prediction: Truckee 31-21

Brady Raggio's Prediction: Truckee

Lynn Ault's Prediction: Truckee 42-7

HUG Hawks @ Reed Raiders

This is an old rivalry with two schools that share a zoning line and are only a few

minutes apart on McCarran if you hit the lights right (which no one does). Hug comes in 1-2 with a win over Sparks and losses to Damonte and Lowry. Reed is 2-1, with wins over Faith Lutheran and Churchill County, their loss was at Del Oro, ranked number 47 in California. The win over Faith Lutheran was impressive, Reed is a threat to win the North this season

Michael Reeves Prediction: 49-7 Reed

J. Ray Dockter's Prediction: 51-10 Reed

Brady Raggio's Prediction: Reed

Lynn Ault's Prediction: 54-13 Reed

Galena Grizzlies @ Bishop Manogue Miners

Galena is much improved and will seek to prove they can play with anyone this week as they make the short trip to Bishop Manogue’s south Reno campus. Manogue comes in 0-2 after a difficult non-conference schedule. Galena is 1-2 with losses to Churchill County

and Yuba City (CA); they defeated Spring Creek to open the season. Last year, Manogue opened the season 0-2, then went on to win the North. Manogue schedules difficult early games to identify areas that need improvement before they hit league play, and it has worked well for them. This first game against a Northern Nevada opponent will get Manogue in the win column, Manogue should establish control of this one early

Michael Reeves Prediction: 56-7 Bishop Manogue

J. Ray Dockter's Prediction: 42-10 Bishop Manogue

Brady Raggio's Prediction: Bishop Manogue

Lynn Ault's Prediction: 56-14 Bishop Manogue
