Five For Friday
MERCED (1-1 CCC, 4-3) at PITMAN (1-1, 6-1): The Bears looking to bounce back from last week's 42-21 loss to Buhach Colony. This would be a big win for Merced's playoff push.
2. TURLOCK (1-1 CCC, 4-3) at ATWATER (1-1, 5-2): Atwater's best shot at a sixth win may be this week with Merced and Buhach Colony looming the final two weeks.
3. PATTERSON (2-1 WAC, 5-2) at PACHECO (3-1, 5-3): Tonight is basically a playoff game for the Panthers, who need that sixth win to get in the playoffs.
4. HILMAR (2-2 TVL, 6-2) at ESCALON (2-1, 5-2): A rematch of last year's Sac-Joaquin Section Division 4 championship game.
5. BUHACH COLONY (2-0 CCC, 5-2) at GOLDEN VALLEY (0-2, 3-4): Buhach Colony running back Stefon Gold has rushed for over 300 yards and seven touchdowns in the last two games.
