Picks Week 3
Week three is here and we are ready for some more great high school football. We have some good games this week including some fun rivalries.
Landrum at Polk County-Game of the Week-Presented by the City of Landrum
After taking a few years off from playing this game following a fight at a basketball game between the two schools a few years ago, this heated rivalry is back on.
Landrum is 1-1 on the season after last weeks disappointing loss to St. Joes. The Cardinals will have their handful tonight with Polk County’s really good running back Angus Weaver. He is a do it all type back and Polk will want to get the ball in his hands however possible. I think Landrum can find enough stops and offense to win this game.
Union at Broome-
The Yellow Jackets couldn’t find the defense last week against York giving up 70 points in the loss. Broome had a tough challenge facing a good Spartanburg team while missing their starting quarterback and running back last week. Both teams look to bounce back this week and get back to the winning side of things.
Both teams will look to establish a dominate running game in this contest and both have good running backs. The question for me is who will be able to dominate on the line of scrimmage. Broome definitely has some good size along the front but the Yellow Jackets do too. This could be a high scoring game and could come down to who has the ball last. Which defense can make more stops.
Gaffney vs Mallard Creek-
Gaffney finally got on the winning side of things last week vs Hammond. The game was a lot closer than most people thought it would be. Hammond has some good athletes especially on the defensive side of the ball. The Gaffney offense has had a hard time getting going these first few weeks.
Mallard Creek went toe to toe with South Pointe last week and came up short as the Stallions kicked a game winning field goal at the end of the game.
This could be a defensive battle. Can Gaffney fins enough offense this week to get a win?
Pick: Mallard Creek
Chapman at Laurens-
The Panthers are off to a surprising 0-3 start here in 2022 and it has been the offense that has really been unable to find their way so far. But the defense has been a bright spot. Laurens however, can’t fins much defense so far.
