King City-Greenfield football

Friday's game
King City (1-2) at Greenfield (1-2), 7:30 p.m.
 Could Greenfield go with its road whites Friday and force the Mustangs to wear their blue jerseys, a uniform in which they have lost five straight games?
 Highly unlikely since three of the Bruins last four wins have come at home. Superstitions aside, King City has won its last five games against their neighbors to the north.
 Hector Ramirez has been a game breaker for Greenfield with four of his touchdowns being 60 yards or longer, including an 82 yard touchdown run last week.
 Yet, the longest run from scrimmage this year came from Rodrigo Frias, whose 93 yard touchdown run was the second longest run in school history, behind Daniel Breaux's 99 yard touchdown run.
 Greenfield had a 17-14 third quarter lead in its season opening loss, and was up 21-19 in the fourth last week before falling by four to Pajaro Valley.
 The Mustangs produced 42 points in their one win -- seven points in two losses. The offense gave up as many points as the defense did two weeks ago in a loss to Seaside.
 Defensively, King City's unit, anchored by Abel Nava and Devante Anderson, have yet to allow a point in the first quarter, having given up one touchdown in the last eight quarters.
 A concern has to be the Bruins speed. Because if Ramirez or Frias both get in the open field, King City could be chasing shadows all night.
