BLYTHE - The Brawley Wildcats will make their every-other year visit to Blythe this evening to take on the Palo Verde Yellow Jackets.

The Wildcats will bring an impressive resume into the contest as they enter the fray with a 6-1 season record and are the only Imperial Valley League school to escape the first two weeks of league play unbeaten.

Most recently the "Cats" claimed their showdown with Imperial by a solid 35-21 count in Imperial.

Brawley's lone loss came at the hands of Division III Hoover while their wins came against Indio, Cibola, Gila Ridge, and a two touchdown triumph over Division I Chula Vista.

The Jackets, on the other hand, are winless in their two IVL contests and are coming off probably the most disappointing loss of the season against Southwest.

The fourth ranked Wildcats will give the Jackets all they want tonight, according to Jacket football coach George Dagnino.

The Wildcats feature their regular power running attack and do not throw often but with Joshua Godinez (17) as their quarterback, will throw when they need to. They passed only twice in the win over Imperial.

"They feature five quality running backs, all are tough and hard-nosed," said Dagnino. "They give the rock to all these guys and wear defenses down."

Backs to watch are Isaak Comparan (10) the Wildcats' leading rusher, Jared Mohammed (35), Bryce Alexander (27), Tanner Rollins (22), and Zachery Krigbaum (20).

"We need to not give up the big play and to keep them from controlling the clock," Dagnino said.

On defense the Wildcats will use the 5-2 base, cover three defense.

"They are very disciplined on defense and don't make many mistakes," said Dagnino. "They force many third and long situations as possible and will get you out of your game play."

Leading tacklers for the Wildcats are Donovin Buck (30) and Isaiah Quiroz (69).

Last week's other IVL contest saw Calexico return to the winners' circle with a 35-21 win over Central in El Centro. The win improved the Bulldogs to 6-1 overall and to 1-1 in league. Calexico will host Imperial tonight.

At Scott Stadium, the Wildcat and Jacket JVs will take the field at 4 p.m. in a preliminary contest while the kickoff for the varsity contest is set for 7 p.m.
