The playoffs are here! Playoffs? Yes, Jim, playoffs.
Let’s get into this week’s games!
Last week I went 12-1. For the year I am 49-14.
Week Seven Games (first round of the postseason unless noted below):
Upper Scioto Valley vs McComb - McComb is clearly not the McComb most people are used to. They figured some good things out last week against Leipsic in the second half. I’ll go with the Panthers.
North Baltimore vs Crestview - Crestview isn’t the Crestview of old either. I still see them finding a way against North Baltimore.
Vanlue vs Patrick Henry - As much as I would love Vanlue to pull off the upset I just don’t see it happening. Sadly taking the Patriots.
Spencerville vs Leipsic - Leipsic looked pretty good for most of last week’s game against McComb. Spencerville though is a pretty good team. I’ll go with the Bearcats in this one. (not a playoff game)
Minster vs Pandora-Gilboa - After an automatic advance over Cory-Rawson due to injury and depth concerns the Rockets were able to snatch up a game against an always tough Minster squad. This year though Minster is not an amazing team as we’ve seen pretty recently from state title wins and appearances. I’ll take the Rockets. (not a playoff game)
Ridgedale vs Mohawk - Mohawk rolls to open up the postseason.
Findlay vs Springboro - Findlay was able to pick up where they left off last week, and I have them doing the same tonight. Gotta take the Trojans.
Hardin Northern vs Delphos St. John’s - Neither team has looked all that great this season. I’ll take the Polar Bears though.
Bluffton vs Riverdale - Riverdale has had some really good moments this season. I think they have some on Saturday as well with a win over Bluffton.
Montpellier vs Carey - Carey should have little trouble winning this one.
Fostoria vs North Union - Things don’t get any easier for Fostoria. I think they lose big.
Edon vs Arcadia and Paulding vs Van Buren - I won’t pick these games since they will be the games I call this weekend. Listen to Tom Grine and I live around 6:50 tonight for Edon vs Arcadia and Saturday join Chase Bachman and I around 6:40. Both games will be on Classic Hits 96-7!
Enjoy the first round of the playoffs everyone!
