- 41st City Showdown
Who: Tokay Tigers (4-0) vs. Lodi Flames (0-3)
When: Today, 7:15 p.m.
Where: Grape Bowl
Players to watch: Though both teams like to establish their ground game, tonight may come down to a battle of two junior quarterbacks in David Simon and Kelse DePauli-Wiltse. Simon has accounted for every Flames score this year, throwing for five touchdowns and running for another. DePauli-Wiltse has tossed eight touchdown strikes in 2012. Who can manage his team to a mistake-free game?

Last fall, the Lodi Flames varsity football team endured three defeats before finally picking up win No. 1. That taste of victory? Oh, so relieving.
"You get the first win," Flames quarterback David Simon said, "and it's like, 'Okay, now it's working.' You know you can do it."
