Back we are for week two! I had a nearly perfect week to start the season going 12-1. My one miss was Vanlue, and they got their first win in 19 games. I’m feeling confident this week. Will that matter? Who knows. Let’s get into the picks for this week.
Record this season: 12-1
Fostoria vs Scott - Fostoria struggled last week against Oak Harbor. Scott isn’t as good as Oak Harbor but I still have them beating the Redmen tonight.
Hopewell-Loudon vs Mohawk - Hopewell-Loudon struggled against a Van Buren team that might make some noise in the BVC this season. Mohawk lost a ton from their 2018 team. I have the Warriors over the Chieftains.
Arlington vs Ada - Arlington will go into the Liberty-Benton game next week 2-0 and looking for their first win over the Eagles in quite some time.
Carey vs Gallion - Carey is going against a bigger school that defeated them a season ago. I’ll take Gallion tonight.
Elmwood vs Lakota - Elmwood started the season strong with a big win over North Baltimore. I think they ride that momentum and start 2-0.
Findlay vs Perrysburg - I just have a feeling the Trojans find a way in this one. Their offense won’t be as bad as it was last week.
Hardin Northern vs Riverdale - I have Hardin Northern starting 2-0. How about that?!
Lake vs Northwood - The score surprised me a bit against Woodmore. I thought it would be a lot more lopsided than it was. Nonetheless Northwood has struggled to start the season multiple times over the last decade plus. The 2008 team just collectively shook their heads. That being said I’m taking my Rangers in the Battle of Lemoyne Road.
Leipsic vs Columbus Grove - Another PCL battle this week for Columbus Grove. This is probably one of the best games of the week. I’ll go with Leipsic but this game feels like it will be super close.
Liberty-Benton vs Archbold - Watching Liberty-Benton last week I can safely say they are a much better team than last season. They struggled a bit in the second half, but were able to get the win over Wynford. Archbold though dominated Hicksville. I’ll say LB finds a way on the road to get the win.
Pandora-Gilboa vs Bluffton - Not gonna overthink this one and just follow my instincts. Give me PG.
Tiffin Columbian vs Waite - Columbian had a good win last week against Fremont Ross. I think they continue that trend with a win over Waite.
Tiffin Calvert vs Wynford - Huge game. Calvert had a good win over Monroeville. Wynford had a tough loss to Liberty-Benton. Wynford is a really tough team that will compete for the NTAC Title this season. I’ve got the Royals getting back to .500.
McComb vs Troy Christain - McComb. Huge.
Van Buren vs Otsego - Both teams replace big parts of their teams from 2018. Give me the Black Knights over the Knights.
Ayersville vs North Baltimore - Won’t pick this one since it will be the game I’m calling Friday night. You can listen live on Mix 96.7 WBVI starting at 6:50 on Friday!
