King City-Pacific Grove football

Friday's game
King City (3-3) at Pacific Grove (3-3), 7:30 p.m.
 This should have a playoff type atmosphere feel as both teams have just one loss in the Mission Trail Athletic League.
 These teams played arguably the best game of the decade in 2013 when a two-point conversation late in the game gave Pacific Grove a 42-41 win.
 The defending two-time Mission Trail Athletic League champion Breakers have won their last four meetings against King City.
 The Mustangs are going to have to do a better job against the pass after giving up five touchdown passes in a 35-32 win last week over Stevenson.
 Noah Cryns is more than just a running quarterback for Pacific Grove, having thrown for nearly 800 yards and eight touchdowns -- all eight to either Kane Miller or Nick Coppla.
 Of course, the Mustangs have to respect Cryns' ability to run. A 1,000 yard rusher last season as a tailback, Cryns has nearly 500 yards and seven rushing touchdowns behind center.
 Last year Cryns ruined King City's bid for a postseason spot when he rushed for 248 yards and four touchdowns, tossed a touchdown pass and had two interceptions.
 Christian Olmos is making the most of an opportunity to play, having rushed for a touchdown and run back a kickoff for six last week.
 Clay Barbree has become an imposing target as a tight end, and returned an interception for a pick six last week that ultimately was the difference in the game.
