Well week 2 might not have been my best, but in week 3 we know a lot more than we did before. Conference play is starting for some leagues. And boy (or girl) do we have some fun games this weekend!
Record this season: 9-4 in week 2, 21-5 overall
Fostoria vs Hopewell-Loudon - Such a big game tonight between neighboring schools that have never met on the football field. Fostoria struggled against Oak Harbor and got back on track with a win over Scott. While Hopewell-Loudon struggled against Van Buren and was more competitive in their loss to Mohawk. I think Hopewell will look much better than they did week one, but I have Fostoria finding a way to get the win in Bascom tonight. You can listen to that game tonight on WFOB.
Cory-Rawson vs North Baltimore - North Baltimore will have the two best athletes on the field a good amount of times this season. They narrowly lost to Cory-Rawson a season ago. I have North Baltimore getting the win.
McComb vs Riverdale - McComb. Huge.
Crestline vs Arcadia - Crestline has won a game this season. Arcadia has not. Because of this I will go with Crestline.
Leipsic vs Vanlue - It’s awesome for Vanlue to start 2-0 for the first time in about a decade. They are going to feel a little less than awesome after tonight. Leipsic by a lot.
Van Buren vs Pandora-Gilboa - A very interesting matchup. Both teams are in a good spot to be contenders in the BVC this season. I think it will be close, but I’m gonna go with Van Buren tonight by single digits.
Mohawk vs Gibsonburg - Both teams made the postseason last season. Both teams come in 2-0. But Gibsonburg didn’t beat Woodmore by a whole lot. Because of that I will go with Mohawk.
Crestview vs Carey - I don’t see Carey starting 0-3. Give me the Blue Devils.
Norwalk St. Paul vs Calvert - Big playoff implications tonight. Last season Calvert gave St. Paul their only regular season loss. The win helped give Calvert a home playoff game in a stacked Division VII Region 26 last year. While St. Paul had to face a very good Edgerton squad. Calvert’s 1-1 record is somewhat deceiving because they played a Wynford team that will make the playoffs. St. Paul hasn’t played amazing teams to start the year, but they haven’t allowed any points yet. Calvert will score but they won’t win. Give me the Fliers.
Columbian vs Ashland - Columbian is 2-0 while Ashland is 0-2. I’ll take the tornadoes.
Northwood vs Elmwood - A surprisingly fun matchup with both teams being 2-0. Elmwood has beaten North Baltimore and Lakota. Northwood has beaten Woodmore and Lake. I will of course go with my Rangers, but I think it’ll be a fairly close game.
Woodmore vs Lakota - Lakota should take care of business against Woodmore, and I believe they will.
Findlay vs Marysville - Findlay is 0-2 and Marysville is 2-0, but Marysville is a good matchup for Findlay. Findlay’s defense is better equipped to stop the Marysville running attack. Give me the Trojans tonight.
Hardin Northern vs Danbury - Danbury lost to Vanlue so I have a hunch that means they won’t win many games this season. I’ll take the Polar Bears.
Arlington vs Liberty-Benton - Won’t pick this one since it will be the game I’m calling. Join Matt Cotman and I live on Mix 96.7 WBVI
