When/where: 7 p.m. Friday at Garden Grove High

Key Lobos: Jr. QB/LB Justin Boyer (52 tackles, one forced fumble); Jr. WR/DB Adolfo Chavez (27 catches for 398 yards and seven TDs; 30 tackles, two INTs, one fumble recovery); Jr. RB/LB Joseph Garcia (62 carries for 382 yards and two TDs; 41 tackles, seven sacks, three forced fumbles)

Key Matadors: Jr. WR Alfredo Espinoza (16 catches for 360 yards and five TDs); Sr. WR/SS Jaylen Todd (52 catches for 776 yards and seven TDs; nine carries for 33 yards and one TD); Jr. QB/FS George Hernandez (71 of 130 passing for 883 yards, eight TDs and eight INTs; four rushing TDs)

Breakdown: The Lobos will host the Matadors in a Garden Grove League game at Garden Grove High on Friday … Los Amigos (3-5, 0-3 in league) needs to win out to keep its slim CIF Southern Section Division 13 playoff hopes alive. Wins over Bolsa Grande (1-7, 0-3) and Santiago (5-3, 2-1) would give the Lobos a .500 record, albeit to become an at-large candidate in a crowded Division 13 field … The injury bug has not been kind to the Lobos. After running back Brian Pacheco suffered an ACL tear against Garden Grove in Week 5, Lobos coach Carl Agnew said that quarterback Brandon Tinoco fractured his throwing hand during a practice last week … Junior Juan Contreras will start at quarterback against the Matadors. In replacement of Pacheco, Garcia has produced two 100-yard rushing performances in three games as the Lobos’ featured running back.
