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

Key Lobos: Jr. LB Justin Boyer (54 tackles, one forced fumble); Jr. WR/DB Adolfo Chavez (33 catches for 494 yards and seven TDs; 31 tackles, two INTs, one fumble recovery); Jr. RB/LB Joseph Garcia (62 carries for 382 yards and two TDs; 41 tackles, seven sacks, four tackles for loss, three forced fumbles)

Key Cavaliers: Sr. WR/FS Ulises Mendez; Jr. QB Bernardo Monroy; Sr. RB/SS David Ramirez; So. RB/MLB Derrick Martin

Breakdown: Los Amigos takes on host Santiago in a Garden Grove League game … Los Amigos (3-6, 0-4 in league) has lost five in a row, a streak that goes back to when the Lobos lost junior running back Brian Pacheco (torn ACL) for the season, and is in last place in the league. Lobos coach Carl Agnew also has no plans to play first-string quarterback Brandon Tinoco (fractured right hand). He gave Tinoco a chance to play during the Lobos’ senior night game last week … Agnew added that junior Juan Contreras and Boyer are engaged in a battle to be the team’s starting quarterback in the season finale. The competition will not be completed until pregame warmups, as Lobos quarterbacks coach Maopu Tuato wants to see which player looks more comfortable throwing the ball on game day. The Lobos figure that they will have to throw the ball to defeat third-place Santiago (5-4, 2-2), which features a run-dominant offense.
