Cowboy’s Sixshooter Texas Week 5

It doesn’t look like this will be a good week for competitive games, but I found a few that should be good for fans that don’t care for mercy rule games.  If you haven’t decided where to go this week, consider one of these.

 

1. Blanket at Gordon
7:30 PM Friday Sept 28

Blanket is having a good season so far. The Tigers are 4-0 coming into this one, and their running back has been a big part of that.
Expectations for Gordon were low this year, but Coach Reed seems to be quickly turning things around.  The Longhorns are 2-2, but their losses were to Iredell and Aquilla.  Gordon is an eight point underdog, but I think playing on their own field will be enough to get the win.

 

2. Morgan at Bluff Dale
7:30 PM Friday Sept 28

Bluff Dale is undefeated, and I don’t see that ending this week.  They have been playing reasonably well and have the potential to improve.
Morgan comes in at 2-2, but both losses were nail-biters.  The Eagles will enter this game as five point underdogs, and I believe that will be pretty close.

 

3. Milford at Strawn
7:30 PM Friday Sept 28

The next step in Strawn’s unbelievable schedule, and a rematch of last season’s Division II East semifinal game.  The spreads have Strawn by 39, but I expect it to be closer than that.  Both teams have high-caliber players and top-notch coaches.  If both teams have all starters healthy, it could be a battle instead of a blowout- but expect Strawn to come out on top either way.

 

4. Claude at Crowell
7:30 PM Friday Sept 28

Crowell is hard for me to predict this year because in their first three games they seem to have played just well enough to get the win.  The loss to Motley County last week may have made them realize that they have to go all-out from start to finish.
The Claude Mustangs are newcomers to six-man, but they’re doing pretty well.  Their only loss of the season came at the hands of Paducah.
The spread on this one is zero, but I think Crowell’s experience will make a 20 point difference.

 

5. Robert Lee at Highland
7:30 PM Friday Sept 28

This isn’t a high profile game, but it should be drawing more attention.  Both teams are consistently above average, and Robert Lee is only a one point favorite.  Normally I would give the advantage to Highland since they play at home, but not this time.

 

6. Bryson at Knox City
7:30 PM Friday Sept 28

Both of these teams started the season strong but neither has done well in the last couple of weeks.  This should be a fun game to watch because both will be looking to break a losing streak.
Knox City is an 11 point favorite at home. Bryson will put up a fight, but I don’t think they will be able to get a win.
