Keeping afloat with a 13-2 week
You would think that finishing with a 13-2 in last week's Grid Picks,I'd be happy.
Well, I am sort of. When three of the guys ahead of you also have 13-2 weeks, it doesn't give you a chance to move up the ladder. That's exactly what happened.
The only two games I missed on was the Lehighton at Allen game, where I picked the Indians, and the Emmaus at Liberty contest, where we all were wrong picking Liberty.
This week, I had to bang this column out a little early. While you're reading this, I'll be out in South Bend, Indiana getting ready to watch the undefeated Fighting Irish host BYU on Saturday afternoon.
Hopefully, I'll have the Luck of the Irish shining on me when I come back next week:
JIM THORPE AT SCHUYLKILL HAVEN - The Hurricanes have turned things around a bit and despite coming off a loss at Tamaqua, didn't look bad. The Olympians are coming off their first win of the season...Schuylkill Haven, 28-21.
EAST STROUDSBURG SOUTH AT LEHIGHTON - Took the Indians last week thinking they had a shot to win it. This week, the Cavaliers are in town...Lehighton 28-7.
SHENANDOAH VALLEY AT MARIAN - Colts defense will have to stop the good passing game of the Blue Devils. I think they will ...Marian, 21-14.
BANGOR AT NORTHERN LEHIGH - The Slaters have lost just one game this season. The Bulldogs played their best game of the season last week. It's crunch time for Joe Tout's boys and we have a hunch that the winner will be...Northern Lehigh, 20-19.
CATASAUQUA AT PALMERTON - The Bombers have just three games left to try and get a "W", but the turnover bug keeps biting them and the Roughies are without a doubt the best team in the League...Catasauqua, 35-14.
PANTHER VALLEY AT TAMAQUA - Panthers have had some injuries and Blue Raiders are churning now like a fine tuned train...Tamaqua, 28-14.
ALLEN AT PLEASANT VALLEY - Canaries got their lone MVC win last week. This week, the Bears keep everything in perspective before taking on ES North and Stroudsburg in the final two weeks...Pleasant Valley, 35-7.
NORTHWESTERN AT PEN ARGYL - Green Knights love those home Saturday afternoon games in the Slate Belt...Pen Argyl, 28-12.
NOTRE DAME AT PALISADES - The Pirates haven't treated teams too well when they entertain them on their home turf this year...Palisades, 14-13.
WHITEHALL AT EMMAUS - Zephyrs get the Green Hornets who are still feeling the sting of last week's loss to Liberty...Whitehall, 21-14.
STROUDSBURG AT EAST STROUDSBURG NORTH - This one will be a close one with the winner setting their sights on Pleasant Valley in the next two weeks...Stroudsburg, 28-13.
SOUTHERN LEHIGH AT SAUCON VALLEY - Spartans have been on a run since that horrible 0-3 start...Southern Lehigh, 14-7.
POCONO MOUNTAIN EAST AT WILKES-BARRE COUGHLIN - Flipping the coin here, since both teams are pretty even...Coughlin, 14-13.
NORTH SCHUYLKILL AT MAHANOY AREA - Spartans have to pick up some wins to make the post-season playoffs...North Schuylkill, 42-6.
NORTHAMPTON AT FREEDOM - The Patriots seem to have just a little edge on the Konkrete Kids at this time of year...Freedom, 28-14.
