Week five has arrived!
We have updated regions. Soon enough we’ll have playoff games; it’s starting to feel real!
No need for much of a preamble this time. Let’s get into the picks!
Last week I went 8-4. For the year I am 27-10.
Week Five Games:
Cory-Rawson vs Vanlue - Someone has to win this game between two 0-4 teams. I’ll take Cory-Rawson in this one.
McComb vs Pandora-Gilboa - Both teams have struggled a bit more than you’d expect. Both teams have lost their last two games. Because McComb is really banged up I will take Pandora-Gilboa.
Riverdale vs Arcadia - Came down to the wire last season. I don’t expect that part to be different. I do though see Riverdale coming out on top this time around.
North Baltimore vs Van Buren - Despite Van Buren not playing all that well last week I think they figure things out tonight. I’ll go with the Black Knights.
Leipsic vs Lima Central Catholic - Leipsic surprised me with how they were able to beat Pandora-Gilboa in week three. I don’t see them surprising me with a win over LCC though.
Fostoria vs Genoa - Fostoria’s most likely win of the season passed them when they lost to Woodmore last week. I just don’t see a winnable game for them at this point in the season.
Columbian vs Perkins - Perkins is a program rebuilding under a new head coach in Jalen Santoro. Columbian rolls in this one.
Calvert vs Margaretta - Margaretta is 0-4 and that won’t change this week. Give me the Senecas.
Hopewell-Loudon vs Lakota - Both teams have looked really good this season. Hopewell-Loudon is undefeated and Lakota is 3-1 with a three point loss to Calvert. I’ll take Hopewell-Loudon in a close one.
Bucyrus vs Mohawk - Bucyrus has scored 16 points all season and recently opted out of the playoffs. Mohawk will dominate.
Seneca East vs Carey - Seneca East hasn’t been the same team this season. I’ll go with the Blue Devils in this one.
Hardin Northern vs Perry - Hardin Northern is on a roll after losing to open the season. Perry though is 4-0. My instinct tells me to go with Perry, but I’ll reverse-jinx it and take Hardin Northern.
Northwood vs Edon - Not much of a challenge in the TAAC this season. The Rangers will roll in this one, but it’ll be their toughest league game of the season. Edon’s one loss is to a pretty good Lakota squad.
Liberty-Benton vs Arlington - 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 five everyone!
