Four more weeks left to go in the regular season. Here’s a quick look at our area picks:
WFHS at Little Elm – I can see a lot of point scored in this game by both teams. But I think Little Elm (who ran the ball for 440 yards against Rider) will have more success on the ground than WFHS will have through the air. Lobos are the pick.
Hirschi at Burkburnett – District 6-3A’s best offense by far against the worst defense. Can’t see the Huskies keeping this one close.
Iowa Park at Graham – I expect the Steers to get back on track this week. Although I expected them to do the same thing last week. IP will turn this into a ground-it-out affair and has a solid defense, so a few Graham mistakes could cost them. Still, I like the Steers in a lowe-scoring game.
Vernon at Bowie – Kind of like the 6-3A game above. I like the Jackrabbits, but I think it can be low-scoring and that Vernon will have a chance, especially if the Lions can limit mistakes. Bowie by 7.
Henrietta at Holliday – I’ll be out at this one, and I’d like to see a close game. It’s always fun if it’s close. But I think the Eagles have too many weapons and I can see at least a two-touchdown win.
Jacksboro at City View – Mustangs just have too many weapons and will have to turn it over a bunch to give Jacksboro a chance.
Alvord at Nocona – Call me crazy, but I’m still high on Nocona. They need their QB Hayden Hill to play (he did not against Holliday last week), but this is a winnable game for them. It’s huge too because both teams are 0-1.
Olney at Albany – Lions in a blowout. However many they want.
Stamford at Seymour – I can’t see the Panthers winning this one after a loss to Electra and a near-loss to Haskell. Stamford wins in a game that should feature a lot of points.
Petrolia at Valley View – I like the Eagles in this one, although a Petrolia victory would give them a solid chance to make the playoffs.
Windthorst at Archer City – Trojans should have no problems in this one. At least four TDs should seperate the two.
Perrin-Whitt at Electra – Tigers in a blowout.
