Predictions: Easy as 2 …. Class 3A girls

NCS Class 3A girls championship

At Santa Rosa High

5 p.m., Saturday

COMMENT: Rematch? Well, pretty much only in the name of the participating schools. These are two very different teams than we saw a year ago. There is no Alyssa on one side of the pitch and no Gretel on the other. The ego has disappeared on one side of the field and the motivation has somewhat lapsed on the other. Vinnie is an incredible tactician and he’ll make a huge difference. But that quest of a “first” title can never be duplicated, in any sport. If, and this is a big if, Selam can go at 95 percent, Vikings win easily; if not, they just win.

PREDICTION: Montgomery 2, Casa Grande 1
