Well I did say what I was going to do coming into week 5. I got better with the picks. In fact, since I only predict the Hardin Northern score weekly for a couple people out there that went there. In my personal record book I had a perfect week 5. Regardless, let’s get into week 6.
Record this season: 50-15 overall, 12-1 in week 5
Fostoria vs Elmwood - Two teams that have struggled a lot over the last handful of seasons. Elmwood started strong at 2-0 before losing to Northwood, Genoa and Rossford. The loss to Rossford is the most questionable of the three. I’ll take the Redmen.
Arcadia vs Riverdale - Riverdale has looked really good the last couple of weeks and I don’t think that changes this week. Going with the Falcons.
Vanlue vs Arlington - Arlington. Huge.
Cory-Rawson vs McComb - McComb. Huge.
Van Buren vs North Baltimore - Van Buren has dealt with a bunch of injuries and because of that they’ve had a bit of a losing skid. I think North Baltimore will be able to score a little bit, but I think Van Buren wins this one.
Leipsic vs Crestline - Leipsic. By a lot.
Carey vs Upper Sandusky - Two teams that have struggled this year. Big rivalry matchup. I’m taking the Rams in this one.
Mohawk vs Colonel Crawford - Cleary not the Mohawk team from a season ago. Going with the Eagles.
St. Francis vs Findlay - Closer than it looks on paper, but Findlay is banged up and playing with their back up QB. I'll take the Knights.
Tiffin Columbian vs Sandusky - Has to be the best game in the area tonight. I will give the slight edge to Columbian. I have a feeling we might see this matchup in November as well.
Tiffin Calvert vs Margaretta - Calvert isn’t the same team they were in 2018, but I think they find a way to beat Margaretta.
Pymatuning Valley vs Hopewell-Loudon - Hopewell-Loudon was lucky to get this game after Sandusky St. Mary had to drop to playing 8 man football this season. It will be a much needed victory for the Chieftains.
Hilltop vs Northwood - It sure looks like the Rangers are going to go 10-0 once again.
Hardin Northern vs Riverside - Close matchup in this one. I’ll give a slight edge to Hardin Northern in this game.
Liberty-Benton vs Pandora-Gilboa - I won’t pick this game since it’s the game I’m calling. Join Matt Cotman and I live on Mix 96.7 WBVI and online here
