MPC-Merced football

Saturday's game
MPC (4-0) at Merced (2-2), 1 p.m.
 A home friendly first half has enabled the Lobos to get off to their best start in eight seasons -- when they went 10-0 in 2008.
 MPC has outscored its opponents at home by an average of 19 points a game. Of course, it also has a 10-point road win, which is where four of its final six will take place.

 Merced has struggled to take care of the ball with 12 turnovers. Andrew Trahan has thrown for 585 yards and eight touchdowns, while W.R. Sanders has rushed for three touchdowns.
 Anthony McKay continues to be a beast in the trenches for MPC with a conference leading six sacks in just three games, while Andrew Jakubowsky leads the team in tackles.
 Quarterback Kody Steele showed no signs of rust after missing two games with an injury last week, throwing for 398 yards and five touchdowns for the Lobos in a win over Gavilan.
 MPC quarterbacks have 12 touchdown passes in their last three games, with just two picks in over 100 attempts.
 While Deryan Sanders leads the team in receptions with 21, Michael Williams leads the conference in receiving yards with 387 and touchdowns with five for MPC.
 In addition, Monterey alum Michael Armstead has 15 catches, three for touchdowns while King City product Jarod Davis has caught 13 passes in his last two games.
