KYLE WENGEL, Ripon: The Indians' senior QB fired four TD passes to lead The Bee's No. 3-ranked small school to a 52-0 rout of Modesto Christian, only a week after MC beat defending section champ Hilmar. Wengel's throwing for 150 yards a game in Ripon's run-first offense, but he's tossed 13 TDs and threw for 234 yards in a Week 4 victory over TVL kingpin Escalon. With Wengel taking the snaps, the Indians are 6-0 and averaging 46 points a game.
TANNER KRIEG Summerville: When the Bears made their last splash in the MLL, it was behind their potent QB. This year it's Krieg and a ground attack that has allowed Summerville to dictate the tempo during its 5-0 start. He ran for career-high 204 yards and four TDs last week, lifting his totals to 684 yards and 10 TDs. He has 22 tackles, as well as an 80-yard kickoff return for a TD.
