Heritage plays a 7 p.m. game at Rancho Verde, last year's CIF-SS Central Division champion, in Moreno Valley. The Patriots won their season opener last week, 32-6 at San Jacinto, while Rancho Verde was upset at home by Elsinore, 46-42.
Paloma Valley hits the road for a 7 p.m. game at Sultana High School of Hesperia. The Wildcats will try to build on the momentum of their 54-6 victory over San Bernardino last week. Sultana will be playing its first game of the season.
Heritage will rely on a high-powered offense led by its new starting quarterback, Mat Bradshaw, who threw for a touchdown in the season opener and directed a running attack led by Jamal Morrow (11 carries, 150 yards, 1 TD). Another key player tonight will be Darius Allensworth, who caught a touchdown pass and returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown last week.
