The Indians have momentum on their side after a down-to-the-wire win over Golden Valley last week, while the Centurions had some energy diminished after a loss to Canyon.

Saugus (4-5, 2-2 in Foothill League) brings with it a strong defensive line that has been giving Foothill League offenses problems throughout the season. Giving quarterback JT Shrout the time he needs to make plays will be key for Hart (6-3, 3-1).

In his last outing, Shrout completed 13 of 30 passes for 305 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

Defensively, linebacker Julian Salazar is coming off a 13-tackle performance, while Trevor Laibl notched 12 tackles last time out.

The Cents will be relying on their ground game, which is spearheaded by Quinn Sheaffer. The senior is likely to reach the 1,000 milestone tonight, as he currently has 940 rushing yards.
