More high school playoff football is on the way this weekend. As nice as it was for some of those teams that aren’t frequent playoff teams now we start to see who is legit.
Let’s get into this week’s games!
Last week I went 6-4. For the year I am 55-18.
Week Eight Games (second round of the postseason unless noted below):
McComb vs Spencerville - McComb is starting to come together at just the right time. I think they pull off the win on the road against Spencerville.
Antwerp vs Leipsic - Antwerp’s only win of the season was last week. I’ll take Leipsic in this one.
Mohawk vs Pandora-Gilboa - Man this should be a really good game. I’ll take PG but I don’t feel great about it.
Vanlue vs Fremont St. Joe’s (not a playoff game) - Vanlue will get their second big win of the season over a struggling Fremont St. Joe’s squad.
Ridgemont vs Cory-Rawson (not a playoff game) - Ridgemont is just 2-5 but with how thin Cory-Rawson is I gotta take the Golden Gophers in this contest.
Riverdale vs Lakota (not a playoff game) - Both teams had aspirations to do something in the postseason, and fell to Bluffton and Elmwood respectfully. I’ll take Lakota in a close one.
Arcadia vs Waynesfield-Goshen (not a playoff game) - Neither team looked great in the postseason. Arcadia played a better team though so I have Arcadia winning.
Patrick Henry vs Hopewell-Loudon - These two programs have some solid history of doing well in the postseason. Patrick Henry’s though is more recent making the state semi’s last year. Hopewell looks really good though so I think the Chieftains take this one.
Norton vs Columbian - Columbian rolls to start their postseason run.
Convoy Crestview vs Calvert - Crestview dominated North Baltimore last week, but I think Calvert makes the most of their bye week and takes down the Knights.
Elmwood vs Liberty-Benton - Elmwood would need to play their best game of the season to even have a shot. I don’t think they will. Gotta take the Eagles in this one.
Ashland Crestview vs Carey - Both teams are pretty good. Each has just one loss. Carey though has absolutely rolled at home and I don’t think that will change. I’ll take the Blue Devils.
Edon vs Arlington and Van Buren vs Northwood - I won’t pick these games since they will be the games I call this weekend. Listen to Matt Cotman and I live around 6:50 tonight for Edon vs Arlignton and on Saturday join Matt and I around 6:40 for Van Buren vs Northwood. Both games will be on Classic Hits 96-7!
Enjoy the second round of the playoffs everyone!
