Milan @ SMCC

SMCC (5-0) is coming off of a  28-7 win over Airport while Milan (2-3) fell to Grosse Ile 38-36. Milan won last seasons match up 21-14, but the Falcons have won three of the last five.

SMCC has been playing extremely well defensively all season. The Falcons are giving up a paltry 3.5 ppg in Huron League play. The offense has been tough to slow down with Justin Carrabino, John Lako and Mitchell Lamour all capable of scoring every time they touch the ball.

Milan's offense just isn't the same this season. Sophomore Trace Lindeman is as good as ever, but the passing game has been suspect. The defense has been good enough at times, but seemed to wear down last week due to lack of depth.

This looks like another gimmee for the Falcons, but each week their opponents have not gone away easily. This game will be no different. Milan will play well, but there is too much talent at SMCC. Prediction: SMCC 21 Milan 0

Airport @ Grosse Ile

Grosse Ile (3-2) is coming off of a 38-36 double overtime victory over Milan While Airport (3-2) was beaten by SMCC 28-7. Airport won last seasons game 27-7 and have won four of the last five games in the series.

Grosse Ile made a nice comeback against Milan last week. The offense was led by Andrew Mitroka who threw for 247 yards and ran for another 76. Sophomore DT Dominic Trombley played what may had been his best game of the season as he recorded 9 solo tackles.

Airport's offense continues to center around RB Dylan Meiring who had over 100 yards against SMCC. The defense was once again led by A.J. Gorteski and Eddie Smith

This is a great match up and is a game that could go either way. GI has struggled against good defenses, but with Mitroka throwing the ball well that could change things. Airport's one dimensional offense may struggle with the Red Devils active LB's. Tough call, but I have to make a pick. Prediction: Grosse Ile 21 Airport 19

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

SMCC wins by 3 TD's again.

Hats off to Huron's defensive coordinator,

Nice comeback by Grosse Ile

Congrats to Jefferson for getting their first win of the season.

Sometimes you need to throw the ball.

Riverview's Drew Kroll looked like Houdini at times in the 4th quarter Friday.

Ever here a coach say, play until the whistle blows?

I'm still hoping the Rams can get a win.

I know it is a long way off, but I hope SMCC gets a shot at Ithaca.

Is Huron actually in line to host a playoff game?

Grosse Ile still has a shot at the playoffs.

I can't believe how often Jefferson throws the ball.

Can Airport get Three more wins?

When you dress 45 players for a JV game, you should have a freshmen team.

Milan should be really good next season.

Riverview has the best student section that I have seen in a while.

Flat Rock @ Jefferson

Both teams are coming off of week four losses. Flat Rock (0-4) fell to Airport 56-21 while Jefferson (0-4) fell to Riverview 37-6.  The Bears won last season 48-13 while the Rams won the two meetings prior to that.

Flat Rock was able to put up some points last week against Airport and should most likely continue that trend this week. The defense has been porous all season, but may fair a little better against the Bears who throw the ball a little more than most.

Jefferson has struggled to score this season and has been shut out twice already. The defense has been better than last year, but has still struggled against quality opponents.

This game couldn't have come at a better time for either team. This should be a good game and some points will most likely be scored. The Rams have lost 13 games in a row and a win would help a team that is still mourning the death of their defensive coordinator Will Mulvaney. Prediction: Flat Rock 28 Jefferson 27
