Grant is arguably the last team that could keep Arleta from claiming the 2014 East Valley League title outright.

The Mustangs (6-1, 3-0) are unbeaten in league play, and will be heavy favorites against Chavez and North Hollywood in their final two games. Should Grant (5-3, 3-1) pull off a victory, they will be favorites to beat Poly in their regular season finale. If the results are as expected, both teams would finish tied in league at 5-1, but Grant would be considered the top league team because of the tiebreaker of head-to-head competition.

A win against Arleta, a Division I team, would certainly boost Grant’s hopes of getting a home game in the first round of the Division II playoffs. A loss would devastate Arleta’s hopes of a decent seeding in the Division I playoffs, even if the Mustangs and Lancers wound up co-league champs.

The kickoff is 7 p.m. at Grant High.
