This is a very close matchup between two evenly matched teams. Both Kingdom Prep Academy and Azle Christian have strong offenses and they are both capable of putting up points in a hurry.
The key to the game for the Warriors will be to control the clock and keep the Fighting Crusaders’ offense off the field. If they can do that, they will have a good chance of winning.
The Fighting Crusaders, on the other hand, will need to make big plays on special teams and force the Warriors into turnovers.
This is a very close matchup, but I am going to give the edge to the Kingdom Prep Academy Warriors. I think their slightly better defense will be the difference in the game.
Final Prediction: Kingdom Prep Academy Warriors 35, Azle Christian Fighting Crusaders 28
