Even though we only had three games to pick last week, we’re still pretty pleased with perfection.
Yes, a perfect 3-0 week, which puts us at 47-11 for the season.
We really want to get to that coveted 50-correct picks plateau for the season … maybe it will happen this week.
Mechanicsburg (11-0) vs. Delphos Jefferson (10-1) at Sidney – As we expected, the Indians had little trouble demolishing Williamsburg in the first round of the playoffs last week.
It might get a bit tougher this week against Jefferson, although we wouldn’t be surprised if there was a running clock again at some point in the second half.
We’re picking Mechanicsburg to win.
WL-S (9-2) vs. Marion Local (10-1) at Wapakoneta – WL-S had a comfortable win at over-rated Cincinnati Country Day last week, but high-flying Marion Local is no Country Day.
A Mechanicsburg-Marion Local regional final seems like it’s destined to happen next week, so that means we’re going with Marion Local to prevail over WL-S in this one.
Urbana U. (2-8) at Shepherd (9-0) – Do we really need to make a pick on this one?
OK, we’ll take a freebie.
We’re picking fifth-ranked Shepherd to win.
