 at Lancaster High at 6 p.m. Both are 4-1-1 in conference.

``It's going to be a dogfight,'' Lancaster coach John Cox said. ``This game will determine the league championship, because the winner will be in sole possession of first place and gets to control their own destiny.''

Highland beat Lancaster 2-0 in their last meeting, but Lancaster was without key defender Nathan Martinez, a starting sweeper. Martinez's absence had a domino See Lotus Notes.  effect, according Cox, whose team will different look for Wednesday.

``Last time I changed up the whole lineup A criminal investigation technique in which the police arrange a number of individuals in a row before a witness to a crime and ask the witness to identify which, if any, of the individuals committed the crime. ,'' Cox said. ``That was not a good idea.''

Cox also said playing at Lancaster should give his team the advantage.

Highland features high-scoring Rafael Garcia Rafael Garcia may refer to:
  • Rafael García, a Mexican professional wrestler better known as Super Calo.
  • Rafael García Torres, a Mexican footballer.
, while Lancaster counters with Billy Wright and Eric Sundberg. Wright missed the first six games but has 14 goals and two assists for the 12-3-3 Eagles. Sundberg has 18 goals, three in league play. Garcia scored two goals in 4-0 victory over Quartz Hill last week, giving him 20.

Cox is less focused on Highland than he is about his own team.

``The problem last time is we were overly concerned about what Highland had,'' Cox said. ``We tended to focus on Highland's talent. We just have to out there and play the way we always play and not change anything.''

Lancaster, coming off a 3-0 win over Palmdale, is counting on its defense to hold down Garcia and Co. The Eagles have yielded four goals in league.

A grip on the Golden League: Highland hosts Palmdale in the biggest wrestling wrestling, sport in which two unarmed opponents grapple with one another. The object is to secure a fall, i.e., cause the opponent to lose balance and fall to the floor, and ultimately to pin the supine opponent's shoulders to the floor, through the use of body  match of the season on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Golden League championship is on the line, as both are 4-0.

 for its seventh straight league title. Palmdale has come in second the last two years.

The premier matchup pits Highland's John Garfinkel (42-1) against Mike Clark, the league's other premier 160-pounder. Garfinkel is coming off Saturday's 14-9 loss to state champion Ryan Kane of Temecula at the Canyon Springs tournament in Murrietta. Garfinkel, the Daily News No. 1 wrestler (all weight classes), was sick with the flu.

``Wednesday's match will determine the league championship,'' Highland coach Mike Young said.

Highland beat Palmdale 46-24 at the Rebel Classic at Quartz Hill High in December.
