Watsonville-North County football

Saturday's game
Watsonville (1-3) vs. North County (0-4) at Alvarez, 2 p.m.
 It's a similar scenario for the Condors, who were winless in non-league play last year, before rattling off four straight wins to open Pacific Division play.
 In another words, league play is a new lease on life for North County, who is playing 10 road games this fall while its field is being renovated.
 There are similarities beyond the won-loss record. Last season North County was outscored 138-20 in its first four games. This year it has been outscored 103-37.
 Watsonville's record is somewhat misleading. It has suffered losses by one and four points. It could easily be 3-1 after last week's 49-7 win over Soquel.
 There's no mystery to what the Wildcatz do. They are going to hand the ball to the likes of Matthew Barceló and Daniel Olivarez and grind on the ground.
 Prior to the Soquel game, Watsonville had just six yards through he air. It has also scored 40 or more points twice this year. The Condors haven't scored 40 points all season.
 Joseph Barrios has been a bright spot on the offense for North County with nearly 400 receiving and rushing yards, having scored three touchdowns. He also has two picks on defense.
