(Lincoln Heights)—[High School Game of the Week #8 Preview]: This week will mark the second consecutive “Live Stream” appearance of the undefeated Lincoln Tigers (6-0)/Overall, and (1-0) as they play host to the Eagle Rock Eagles (3-3)/Overall, and (1-0) in Northern League match-ups. The game will be available for viewing on the NFHSNetwork.Com or its Affiliate, East L.A. Sports Scene Productions. The undefeated Tigers, fresh from last week’s thrilling “come-from-behind,” one point win over Torres, get set to ratchet up their game even higher as the Division I, Eagle Rock Eagles, arrive on Friday, 10/11. Kick-off is slated for 7 pm. The Eagles come into this encounter with a “Blow-out” win over Marshall last week, (49-7).
In an interview this week with Head Coach, Gabriel Cotero, when asked about this game, he replied “Eagle Rock is a very good and athletic team. We respect their QB, their outstanding running backs, and receivers. Coach Moran always prepares his teams to play all-out. However, we’re looking to beat them with a great week of practice, and of course, we must play well and avoid turning over the ball at critical times in the game. Our biggest hope is that we give our student-body, fans, and alumni, a very close game.”
Of Significance…Although both of these teams are members of the Northern League, due to the L.A. City Section’s Divisioning process, there are teams that represent all three Section Divisions in the same league. Last week, the Tigers defeated Torres, a Division II school in the same conference. This practice has been in existence for some time, and we urge the Section to re-visit this, if they haven’t already. With the number of L.A. City Section “Blow-out” games increasing at a very rapid rate, we highlight one of the possible reasons that we have readily observed in our coverage of the sport—the exponential differences (age, size, weight) and the size of the team’s roster. Since the issue was reported on in the L.A. Times by Eric Sondheimer last week, we will keep a strict eye on the future of the Divisioning Process. Whatever the outcome of this game, rest assured that both teams will advance into the L.A. City Section’s playoffs beginning on November 8th. After all, this is what good competition does when those Friday Night Lights are turned on and the school teams get ready to do battle on the grid-iron here in the City of the Angels.
