Week Three is here and it's a hot Friday, the 13th. 

And coincidentally, a slew of Central Valley teams are here on the Coast. It will cool down quite a bit by kickoff, so maybe the hot weather won't play much of a factor but if it does the out-of-area teams will have an advantage. 

There are some interesting games to pick.

St. Joseph hosts Bakersfield Christian in the game I'm most excited for. There are three Bakersfield schools in town tonight.

Righetti hosts Bakersfield Centennial and Santa Maria hosts Golden Valley. I guess I'm a homer but I'm going with Santa Maria schools in all three. 

The big Central Coast showdown is Lompoc and Arroyo Grande. That one will also be in Santa Maria tonight as it's being played at PVHS due to construction at AG's home field. 

I'm going with the Braves in that one but it's a toss up. 

In maybe a surprising one, I'm picking Cabrillo to beat Pioneer Valley. It would be a shocker, but the Conqs are surely due and this may be their best shot at a win all season.
