 Series History
First Meeting: 2008 - LCC 21, MH 14
All-Time Series tied 2-2

The Avocado League will most likely be decided this week when its two remaining unbeaten teams face off for their fifth all-time meeting.

Powered by an explosive passing attack that features quarterback Jack Tuttle and deep-threat receiver Chris Olave, top-ranked Mission Hills has looked unstoppable this season, running through its opponents by an average score of 42-6.

La Costa Canyon will be tasked with putting up points against a tough Grizzlies defense that hasn't given up more than 14 this season. The Mavericks boast a strong ground attack anchored by Karson Lippert, who exploded for over 300 yards and three scores in a 36-21 win over Carlsbad.

During last week's win over El Camino, quarterback Jake Neufeld showed off his duel-threat ability by rushing for three touchdowns.
