Another week of playoff football! No time to waste so let’s get into the games!
Last week I went 7-4. For the year I am 62-22.
Week Nine Games:
Friday Playoff Game’s
Mohawk vs Lima Central Catholic - Mohawk is peaking at the correct time. Meanwhile LCC hasn’t played in forever. At least not since their win over Arlington on 10/2. I might not be picking this one with my head, but I have Mohawk finding a way to win this one.
Hopewell-Loudon vs Lima Perry - Both teams are undefeated and haven’t struggled a whole lot. Hopewell definitely impressed me in those wins over Calvert and Patrick Henry. I have the Chieftains getting it done tonight.
Revere vs Columbian - Columbian will be challenged a little bit for the first time this postseason, but I have them prevailing vs Revere.
Friday Non-Playoff Game’s
North Baltimore vs Fremont St. Joe’s - I think this should be a very close game between two teams that have struggled this season. I’ll go with the Tigers over the Crimson Streaks.
Cory-Rawson vs Hardin Northern - I have the Polar Bears rolling over the Hornets in this one.
McComb vs Lakota - Lakota rolled last week against Riverdale while McComb narrowly lost last week to Spencerville to end their postseason. I think McComb gets it done.
Pandora-Gilboa vs Delphos St. John’s - I was a little surprised Mohawk was able to handle PG the way they did. I think the Rockets will roll in this contest.
Van Buren vs Patrick Henry - Patrick Henry is clearly not the team of old from last season. Both teams want to run the crap out of the ball. I don’t like doing this, but I’m going to take Patrick Henry in this game.
Vanlue vs Springfield Central Catholic - Both teams are 1-7 and have had some rough stretches. I know they burned me last week, but I think Vanlue finds a way to pull this game out.
Fostoria vs Rossford - The time off won’t help Fostoria at all. I think Rossford blows them out.
Carey vs Archbold - Carey is looking to replicate last season’s postseason run by looking to take down the top seed in their region. Archbold though historically hasn’t struggled in the postseason. As much as it pains me to say I think the road ends for the Blue Devils on Saturday night.
Northwood vs Fairview - Two high powered offenses with the defences to back them up. I don’t like picking against Northwood, but this Fairview team is really good and honestly might be my pick to win the whole region. Sadly taking the Apaches.
Leipsic vs Arlington and North Union vs Liberty-Benon - 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 Leipsic vs Arlington and Saturday join Shayne Nissen and I around 6:50 for LB hosting North Union. Both games will be on Classic Hits 96-7!
Enjoy the third round of the playoffs everyone!
