Here are six games that I would love to see. Unfortunately, I can only pick one- if you attend one of the others, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Victory Christian vs Chilton Christian
7:00 PM Friday Nov, 2 at Clay County Christian
We expect Victory Christian to win by 45 or more- for good reason. Not only are they are undefeated, they haven’t allowed a single point all season. Yes, you read that right. Victory has lived up to their name. Their closest game was a 46-0 win. They defeated Chilton Christian 55-0 early in the season.
With that said, you’re probably wondering why I’ve included this one. I have three words to explain it- State Championship Game.
If you can’t attend, you can listen to Shad’s live broadcast at http://mixlr.com/sixmania1
C.J. Kline will be doing interviews and video clips while Bookworm Photography (Rena Parks) will complete our coverage.
Pawnee Heights at Weskan
3:00 PM Friday Nov, 2
This is a semifinal game with a 10 point spread. Weskan is favored to win, and they have home field advantage- but the last time they faced Pawnee Heights, they lost. It was a close game, 39-37, and I expect this one to be similar. I’m going against the spreads on this one and picking Pawnee Heights.
Milford at Coolidge
7:30 PM Friday Nov, 2
This a huge game. Both are top 10 teams in Division I, and this game will determine first and second place in district. Milford is a 23 point favorite, but don’t let that turn you away from this game. Coolidge has the ability to keep it closer than that- and possibly win if they can capitalize on any Milford mistakes.
I think Milford wins it, but it should be a fun game.
Jenson Gainer will be broadcasting this one on http://mixlr.com/sixmania2
I will be doing video clips, and BrandiLoo will provide us with great photos.
Harvard at Cody-Kilgore
2:00 PM Friday Nov, 2
Cody-Kilgore kept their Hope’s alive with an upset victory last week. Unfortunately for them, they will face Nebraska’s #2 team this week. Harvard has been in the top five most of the season, and I don’t see them losing this week. Cody-Kilgore is a 23 point dog, but I think they’ll put up a tough fight and may keep it closer than that.
5. New Mexico
Carrizozo at Elida
1:00 PM Saturday Nov, 3
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a semifinal game with a four point spread- until now. Carrizozo is the favorite, but I don’t believe that can pull it off. I expect Elida to use the home-town support as motivation to win.
Rodney Ayers will be at this one taking photos for us.
May at Gorman
7:30 PM Friday Nov, 2
This one should determine first and second places in Division 1 District 14. May was doing well earlier in the season, but it looks like they peaked too soon. Gorman has been a solid upper mid-level team all year. Our spreads have Gorman by 1, but I think they get a much more decisive victory.
