Jefferson @ Riverview

Riverview (3-0) beat Airport last week 34-19 while Jefferson (0-3) lost to Milan 34-0. The Pirates won last years game 50-12, but the Bears have won six of the last ten.

Riverview seems to be hitting their stride offensively. They can score through the air or on the ground. The defense continues to be the strength of this team and will need to play well against the pass happy Bears.

Jefferson has been able to move the ball through the air this season, but lack of a running game and turnovers have hurt them. While the defense hasn't been a bright spot, they are much improved over a year ago.

Riverview seems poised to make a run at the league title. The natives down near the lake are a little restless with the new Jefferson regime. I know it is hard, but you have to give the new guys some time to turn things around. They are doing a lot of things right down there, the wins will come eventually. Prediction: Riverview 34 Jefferson 14

Flat Rock @ Airport

Both teams are coming off of losses in week 3. Flat Rock (0-3) fell to Grosse Ile 42-7 while Airport (2-1) was dealt their first loss of the season by Riverview, 34-19. Airport won last seasons game 49-7 and have won 12 in a row in the series.

Flat Rock started out well last week on offense, but turnovers hurt them in the first half. The defense hasn't really been able to stop anyone in the league. It doesn't get any easier as Airport will run the ball all night.

Airport's Robbie McGrath had a really nice game last week. Look for three backs to carry the ball a lot this week. The defense was shredded a bit last week by Riverview, but should rebound against the Rams.

I just don't see this being much of a game although this is a good rivalry. Flat Rock seems to be improved this season, but you haven't been able to tell the last two weeks. Airport needs another win in hopes of getting to six and qualifying for the playoffs. Prediction: Airport 42 Flat Rock 6

Milan @ Huron

Milan (2-1) is coming off of a 34-0 win over Jefferson while Huron (2-1) lost at SMCC 40-7. Milan won last season's contest 20-7 and have won 13 0f 14 since reentering the league back in 2000.

The Milan offense has sputtered a bit with turnovers and penalities, but sophomore RB Trace Lindeman continues to put up solid numbers on the ground. The defense pitched a shut out last week , but will have to be better when they travel to New Boston.

Huron was in the game against SMCC for nearly the entire first half before the wheels fell off last week. The lone bright spot offensively for the Chiefs was junior RB Jacob Fryer. Defensively, Huron will need to force Milan out of their comfort zone and to turn the ball over.

This should be a good game that could go either way. A win for either team gives each a legitimate shot at the playoffs. A loss for either may keep them out. Prediction: Huron 21 Milan 20
