Week 6 was an interesting one. Things are finally starting to feel like fall. The weather is getting crisper. The leaves are changing. Heck I even went to a pumpkin patch for the first time in like five years. Let’s get into this week’s picks!
Record this season: 59-20 overall, 9-5 in week 6
Rossford vs Fostoria - Man, the NBC is weird this year. Genoa’s down for the first time in a while. Eastwood remains at the top but both Rossford and Fostoria are the next two teams to look out for. This seems to be a pretty even matchup. I think we’ll see another close game that the Redmen find a way to win.
Riverdale vs Liberty-Benton - Riverdale has been fun in spots this season and they’re coming off a tough loss to Arcadia. That doesn’t mean this week will be better for them. Going with LB.
Cory-Rawson vs Crestline - It won’t be nearly as bad as it was last week against McComb, but I still have Cory-Rawson falling to Crestline.
Arlington vs Arcadia - Arlington. Big.
McComb vs North Baltimore - McComb keeps rolling.
Vanlue vs Pandora-Gilboa - Pandora-Gilboa. Massive.
Mohawk vs Bucyrus - I’m not sure what to make of this game. Neither team has been very impressive so far this season. I’ll take Bucyrus but I don’t feel great about it.
Carey vs Seneca East - Give me the Tigers rolling to 7-0.
Tiffin Calvert vs Danbury - Calvert. Huge.
Fremont St. Joe’s vs Hopewell-Loudon - A pair of 2-4 teams that have struggled so far this season. I’ll go with Hopewell-Loudon on a whim.
Clyde vs Tiffin Columbian - Both teams started the season 5-1. Clyde’s loss came to start the season while Columbian’s was this past week. Last year TC lost because of a late field goal. I think they remember that well and find a way to get the win.
Findlay vs Clay - Findlay is banged up, but so are a lot of teams at this point in the season. I think they get a better flow on offense and take down the Eagles.
Northwood vs Montpelier - One team hasn’t scored a point in their last two games. One team has scored at least 50 points each of the last four weeks. I will go with the team that has scored at least 50 for the last four weeks. (Yes, it’s Northwood. I just wanted to be somewhat creative)
Hardin Northern vs Lehman Catholic - Another seemingly close matchup for Hardin Northern. Considering Hardin Northern easily beat Riverside and Lehman Catholic needed OT to do so. I will go with the Polar Bears
Van Buren vs Leipsic - 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
