Week three is coming up, and it seems to come even quicker following a holiday weekend.
We’re starting to know which teams are good and which teams aren’t so good. Nonetheless let’s get started with a new week of picks. No time for fluff.
Last week I went 8-5. For the year I am 19-6.
Pandora-Gilboa vs Leipsic - After what I saw from Leipsic last week; I have to take the Rockets over the Vikings.
McComb vs Arlington - Both teams have looked really good to start the season. Plus they’re both 2-0. Arlington jumped ahead last season before McComb came back to win. I may come to regret it, but I’m taking Arlington over McComb this week. I still see a really close game.
Riverdale vs North Baltimore - Both teams have first year head coaches. Both teams are 1-1. I think there will be a lot of offense in this one. I’ll take the Falcons over the Tigers.
Arcadia vs Vanlue - Well someone has to win this one, right? Both teams come in at 0-2. Arcadia has put up more of a fight in their games so I’ll go with Arcadia tonight.
Findlay vs St. John’s - Don’t let St. John’s coming in at 1-1 fool you. They lost a shootout with Central Catholic last week. We’ll know if the Trojans are for real after this week, but I just don’t see them scoring enough points to beat St. John’s. Give me the Titans.
Columbian vs Clyde - Big SBC match up in this one. Columbian is 2-0 as are the defending state champs. Columbian won this game in a shootout last year. I just have a feeling Clyde wins this one.
Calvert vs Gibsonburg - Calvert is rolling to start the year. Gibsonburg doesn’t look to be the same team as last season since a lot of those guys graduated. Give me the Senecas.
Hopewell-Loudon vs Margaretta - Hopewell-Loudon finally got on the field on Monday, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. I’ll take the Chieftains over the Polar Bears.
Mohawk vs Seneca East - A game that has been a very important game of the last few seasons. Seneca East hasn’t had any trouble in their first two games. While Mohawk shutout Upper Sandusky in week one, but fell to Carey last week. I have a feeling though the Warriors win this one.
Bucyrus vs Carey - Carey is 1-1 with a good win over Mohawk last weekend. Bucyrus has scored 7 points in two weeks. I’ll go with the Blue Devils.
Northwood vs Montpelier - Northwood is 2-0, and Montpelier is 0-1 after not being able to start their season against Hopewell-Loudon. They also lost to Cardinal Stritch. Give me the Rangers. Big.
Hardin Northern vs Ridgemont - Taking Hardin Northern on a whim. Neither team looks very stout this season.
Van Buren vs Cory-Rawson - I won’t pick this one since it’s the game I will be calling. Listen to Matt Cotman and I live around 6:50 tonight on Classic Hits 96-7!
Enjoy week three everyone!
