This week’s matchup:

Douglas at Galena, 7 p.m.

Throw the record up until now out the window. From hereon, they all count toward the playoffs. Douglas meets up with Galena in the Sierra League opener for both teams. Galena is spotless on the season at 5-0, while Douglas is 1-4.

Galena’s record is legitimate, but don’t read too much into the Tigers’ record. When you break it down, the Tigers are about five plays away from being 3-2 at this point, if not 4-1.
 
Douglas has played the toughest front-end schedule in the region and hasn’t been out-classed in any of the matchups. It’s been a series of miscues, broken plays and bad breaks that’s stumbled Douglas to this point. When they put it all together, this is going to be a pretty dangerous team.

What to look for:

Galena is as balanced an offense as you will see this year, with senior quarterback Brock Raggio, the region’s top passer (1,013 yards passing); senior running back Ben Barnard (1,009 rushing yards), the region’s top rusher; and senior wide receiver Chaz Clark (531 yards receiving), the region’s top receiver, leading the way.

“They are hard to prepare for because they are so balanced,” Douglas coach Ernie Monfiletto said. “They do a great job running the ball, and Raggio is a real quality quarterback.

Douglas counters with a physical and aggressive defense that recorded six sacks against Spanish Springs last week.

The Tigers’ Nick Abreu had a breakout game against Spanish Springs, rushing for 200-plus yards behind Douglas’ experienced offensive line. Douglas will be looking to open up its vertical passing game to help spread the Galena defense out.

“I know the kids have bought in to what we are trying to do,” Monfiletto said. “They’ve done a tremendous job defending people. The offense was more productive last week. We’re going to continue to work on being more balanced and obviously we need to score more points.”

Though the Douglas-Galena series extends back to 1995, tonight will only be the sixth time the Douglas varsity squad has ever played at Galena.

The last two trips have amounted to pretty exciting games with the Tigers coming back from way behind to win 24-16 in 2009 and the Grizzlies escaping with a 30-29 win in 2010.

“We’ve had some tough games there,” Monfiletto said. “They’ve been in our boat, either winless or with one or two wins. We’re hoping to reverse that a bit and surprise them.

“I have great respect for that coaching staff, very close ties with a lot of them. They’re a well-coached, talented team. We need to put a complete game together.”

What’s happening around the league this week:

Damonte Ranch at Carson, 7 p.m.; Douglas at Galena, 7 p.m.; Hug at Spanish Springs, 7 p.m.; McQueen at Reed, 7 p.m.; North Valleys at Reno, 7 p.m.

My picks (I never pick the Douglas game and I am 12-4 on the year):

Carson over Damonte Ranch, Hug over Spanish Springs (have to have one crazy pick, but Hug’s defensive line is for real.), Reed over McQueen, Reno over North Valleys.

What we learned in Week 5: McQueen posted somewhat of a surprise win over Reno and launched itself back into the regional title discussion. This week’s game against Reed will go a long way toward showing where exactly the Lancers stand. Reed clearly separated itself from the pack with what it managed to do against Carson. The matchups this week will provide a good look at what to expect down the stretch, particularly with Douglas-Galena, Damonte-Carson and McQueen-Reed.
