Atascadero looks to stop Paso Robles claiming PAC 5 title

Posted: Updated:

KSBY's final Friday Night Highlights Game of the Week features a North County showdown between Atascadero and Paso Robles.

The Bearcats (4-4, 3-0 PAC 5) enter week 10 undefeated in league play, while Arroyo Grande (6-3, 2-1 PAC 5) sits in second and Atascadero (3-6, 1-2 PAC 5) in fourth.

This will be Atascadero's opportunity to not only try to stop Paso Robles from taking the PAC 5 league title outright but to put on a good show in a classic rivalry match. 

"You know these kids on either side have known each other forever," said Vic Cooper, Atascadero head coach. "Ther are kids playing for Paso who grew up here and played in Atascadero, and there are kids who grew up in Paso that are here. They know each other very well. It's a very friendly rivalry, and then come Friday night for two and half hours, they bang heads pretty good. For these guys, yeah, this Paso game is everything. We try to underscore it and underplay it the rest of the year, but every single one of them is looking forward to this game."
