Las Cruces High vs. Eldorado

Saturday's Class 5A high school football state campionship game between Las Cruces High and Eldorado is shaping up to be a very good game.

Both team have offenses that can do good things via the ground and through the air.

Both defenses also have the ability to come up with big plays as well.

Cruces High's duo of running back James Hall Jr. and quarterback Dante Caro will be the difference, however. These two are very explosive and if the Bulldawgs get the running game going, the passing gave could very well thrive.

Expect Eldorado to come out and play well early. If EHS can control the tempo of the game and make it more of a low-scoring game, it could be to their benefit.

My prediction is LCHS 31, Eldorado 17.
