Week 3 was a wash in more ways than one with the weather across the area on Friday night. I’m sure the weather affected all or almost all of the games, but you know what they say. Both teams had to deal with the elements. Now let’s get into the picks for week 4.
Record this season: 10-4 in week 3, 31-9 overall
Fostoria vs Eastwood - Fostoria might keep it close for a quarter or so, but Eastwood is just too talented. Give me the Eagles.
Vanlue vs Arcadia - I have Vanlue getting to 3-1 on the season. How about that?!
Liberty-Benton vs Cory-Rawson - Liberty-Benton grinded out a win last week against Arlington. They won’t need to do that this week. I’m going with LB.
Riverdale vs Van Buren - Van Buren rebounds after a tough loss to Pandora-Gilboa.
North Baltimore vs Crestline - Crestline is playing a whole bunch of BVC teams, and they’re going to lose to a whole bunch of BVC teams. Going with the Tigers.
Leipsic vs Pandora-Gilboa - Easily the best game in the area. Especially considering these two didn’t get to play last year because of how the schedule worked out. Gonna go with Leipsic though in this one.
Mohawk vs Carey - I really didn’t think Carey was going to start the season 0-3. Yet here they are about to be 0-4. Gotta take Mohawk coming off their first regular season loss since 2017.
Findlay vs Whitmer - Riley Keller is gonna have himself a game. Going with the Panthers.
Tiffin Calvert vs Gibsonburg - Calvert is 1-2 but those losses came to Wynford and Norwalk St. Paul. Two teams that will make the playoffs. But Gibsonburg is 3-0 coming off a good win against Mohawk. Steve Reser lost to his former team last season, and I don’t think he will lose to them two seasons in a row. Going with the Senecas.
Tiffin Columbian vs Start - Columbian is 3-0. Start is 0-3. Give me Columbian.
Edon vs Northwood - As per tradition the Rangers will open up TAAC play against the Bombers. Edon is on the right track on building their program up, but Northwood’s program has been rolling basically as long as I’ve been alive. Give me my Rangers.
Hardin Northern vs Upper Scioto Valley - I think it’ll be a tight one. Both teams come in at 2-1. I’ll take the Polar Bears. (How about that Potter?!) (How about that Colin?!)
Arlington vs McComb - Won’t pick this one since it’ll be the game I’m calling tonight. You can join Matt Cotman and I for that tonight on Mix 96.7 WBVI
