The midway point of the football league season will pit three local teams against their toughest league rivals.

Playing in West High’s 2013 homecoming game at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, The Wolf Pack will face defending Tri-City Athletic League champion St. Mary’s at Steve Lopez Stadium.

The Wolf Pack (1-6, 0-2 TCAL) is coming off of a 55-3 loss to Tokay High of Lodi.

Leading the Wolf Pack offense are junior quarterback Kyle Hunt and senior running back John Choi. Senior Kepa Saaga and junior Chance Wilson also lead West’s running attack.

Full statistics for the West team were not available.

St. Mary’s (5-2, 2-0 TCAL) has lost only to De La Salle of Concord, the defending California Interscholastic Federation Open Division champion, and Del Oro of Loomis, a 2012 Sac-Joaquin Section semifinalist.

The Rams average nearly 400 yards of offense per-game, with 195 yards passing and 202 yards rushing.

Tracy travels to Lincoln

Tracy High’s Bulldogs head to Stockton on Friday to face defending San Joaquin Athletic Association champion at 7:15 p.m. at Lincoln High.

Lincoln is 2-5 this year, but all of the Trojans’ pre-league opponents got at least as far as quarterfinals in the 2012 playoffs, and two league wins for the Trojans include a 59-12 win over Chavez last week.

A win for Tracy (6-1, 2-0 SJAA), coming off a 42-6 win over Lodi, would be a big step toward the Bulldogs’ first league title since 2009.

Playing at home this week, Kimball High (3-4, 2-2 Valley Oak League) faces defending VOL and SJS Division III champion Oakdale (4-3, 3-1 VOL) in Don Nicholson Stadium at 7:15 p.m. Friday.

Millennium hosts Elliot Christian

Also at home, Millennium (4-3, 1-1 Central California Athletic Alliance) will host Elliot Christian (2-5, 0-2 CCAA) of Lodi at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at Kimball High.
