Football: Week 9 capsules

1:00 AM, Oct. 19, 2012 EDT



Reed at Reno

When: 7:30 p.m. today

Records: Reed (5-3, 3-0); Reno (6-2, 4-0)

Key stat: The Huskies' seniors are 0-3 against Reed in their careers, including the defeat last season.

The intrigue: The High Desert League title is on the line for the Huskies, and they no doubt remember the 42-7 loss the Raiders handed them at home last season. Reed's league-title chances also are in play.

Galena at Damonte Ranch

When: 7:30 p.m. today

Records: Galena (6-2, 3-0); Damonte (4-3, 2-1)

Key stat: The Grizzlies average 259 rushing yards per game; the Mustangs allow 118 yards on the ground per game. Something has to give.

The intrigue: It's very simple for the Grizzlies: Win and they're the Sierra League champs and a No. 1 seed in the Division I North Regional. But the Mustangs still have a shot at the No. 1 seed, as well. Oh, and this is a rivalry game.

Spanish Springs at North Valleys

When: 7:30 p.m. today

Records: Spanish Springs (6-2, 2-1); North Valleys (1-6, 0-3)

Key stat: The Cougars are 5-2 against the Panthers since 2004 and won the past four meetings.

The intrigue: Spanish Springs is playoff bound with a win. North Valleys must win to keep alive its razor-thin postseason hopes. Desperation could rear its head here.

Truckee at Fallon

When: 7 p.m. today

Records: Truckee (6-1, 6-1); Fallon (7-0, 7-0)

Key stat: The Wolverines won both meetings last season by a combined 10 points.

The intrigue: That Truckee isn't also undefeated with its record win streak intact would lessen a win only slightly for Fallon. But it's still going to take a Herculean effort to hand the Wolverines a second loss and move to the doorstep of a league championship.

Fernley at Lowry

When: 7 p.m. today

Records: Fernley (6-2, 6-1); Lowry (7-1, 6-1)

Key stat: The Buckaroos' six-game win streak is second in Div. I-A North, behind only Fallon's seven straight wins.

The intrigue: It's all about playoff seeding at this point. Fernley is in but wants to solidify its standing. With two games left, Lowry could finish anywhere from first to fifth in Div. I-A North.
