Outlook: If McClintock wants to equal last year’s feat of getting to the second round of the playoffs, the Chargers are going to have to accept being road underdogs.
The Chargers have skidded a bit, losing their last two games, but they have played top competition, and with Mack Martin (1,700 yards, 16 touchdowns) in the backfield, McClintock needs to keep the score close to utilize its best weapon. The Chargers are 6-1 when they score at least 24 points.
Sabino’s only loss was a 9-7 defeat in the middle of the season to Tucson Canyon del Oro. The Sabercats haven’t allowed more than one touchdown in any game this season, but haven’t played that difficult a schedule. They boast a 1,200-yard rusher in Chris Lundgren and a 1,400-yard passer in Justin Randall.
