Carmel-Soledad football

 Six days and counting.
 The most explosive offense in the Mission Trail Athletic League will meet up against arguably the best defense.
 Soledad and Carmel will get reacquainted on Friday in what some might consider a mutual site as the game was moved to Monterey Peninsula College while renovations continue at Carmel.
 "I'd rather play on Friday night than Saturday afternoon,'' Soledad coach Frankie Berlanga said.
 One opposing coach told me Soledad's front seven is the best he's ever seen in his coaching tenure.
  It would be hard to argue with those feelings, based on last year's battle, in which Soledad held Carmel without a touchdown in a 9-3 win.
 That game helped propel the Aztecs to a share of the programs first title. The core of that defense is back, and it will be tested against an offense that's scoring at will.
 Carmel has produced 40 or more points in five of its six wins, outscoring opponents 160-35 in the first half.
 Soledad, meanwhile, hasn't allowed a point in the third quarter this season. Owners of four straight wins, its defense produced two touchdowns last week.
