Key Lobos: Jr. QB Brandon Tinoco (55 of 112 passing for 422 yards, two TDs, and seven INTs); So. RB/DB Brian Pacheco (58 carries for 294 yards and three TDs; 19 tackles and two INTs); So.

Breakdown: The Garden Grove League has belonged to its namesake for a long time. Garden Grove High (2-3, 1-0) carries a 28-game league winning streak into its meeting with the Lobos (1-5, 0-1). This is the Argonauts’ last hurrah in their current conference, as they will move to the Golden West League next year … Dominik Sanchez is the one to watch for Garden Grove. He averaged 9.7 yards per rush in the Argonauts’ first three games, and he ran for 240 yards against Garden Grove La Quinta last week … Conversely, the struggles continue for Los Amigos’ offense. The Lobos managed just six first downs and 91 yards of total offense in a 50-7 loss to Rancho Alamitos in their league opener.
