This week’s matchup:

Douglas at Damonte Ranch, 7 p.m.

This one stung last year, with the Mustangs getting an extra down before time ran out to win it 47-46. NIAA officials later said Douglas should have won the game, but would not overturn the result.

The Damonte-Douglas football series is the lone series I’ve seen every game of, and here’s what it comes down to: Damonte is always, ALWAYS tough at home, and always tough on defense.

Douglas has a pretty feisty defense of its own. Something will have to give.

What to look for:

Douglas has taken a step forward every week and gave league-leading Galena a real run last week.

Tiger quarterback Wes Hundley completed 70 percent of his passes and began to stretch the field vertical for the first time this year. Receiver AJ Pfaffenberger made a couple big catches and Bailey Vidaurri and Nick Abreu have become true weapons in the Tiger offense.

“Wes made good decisions,” Douglas coach Ernie Monfiletto said. “We need to continue to do that to be effective.”

Damonte comes in after giving Carson a late run last week before falling.

“They’re an unpredictable team,” Monfiletto said. “Unpredictable and athletic. That’s a dangerous combination. For us, it’s going to be a matter of playing solid defense and staying in our running lanes. We can’t turn the ball over on offense and we just need a fundamentally sound game.”

My picks (I never pick the Douglas game and I am 14-6 on the year):

Reed over Hug, McQueen over North Valleys, Spanish Springs over Reno and Galena over Manogue.

What we learned in Week 5: OK, so I was wrong on Hug over Spanish Springs. I wasn’t wrong that there would be a crazy upset last Friday. North Valleys beat up on a physical Reno squad and I do not have an explanation for it. It was the Panthers’ first league win since Oct. of 2011. Reno is now 0-2 in High Desert League slate and sitting behind North Valleys after a solid non-conference season. Keep an eye on that with tough games against Reed and Spanish Springs remaining. Carson also posted its first league win since 2011, hanging on against Damonte Ranch.
