Week 1 Predictions

Grosse Ile/Detroit Western: This is a battle between two teams that currently have 20 game winless streaks. GI looks like they might be a better team this year. Western will continue to struggle in the PSL. The streak is over.......Uh Uh oh Grosse Ile wins! 34-14.

Flat Rock/Ida: Its nice to see these two teams playing again. They have taken a hiatus for 3 years. The Rams think they have a pretty good team. Ida returns 15 seniors. Look for some home cooking in Monroe County. Ida wins 26-19.

Riverview/Crestwood: The Pirate faithful have been waiting for this moment a long time. Jeff Stergalas is finally home and Crestwood will be his teams first victim. Riverview wins 28-13.

Milan/Ypsilanti: Milan has a lot of question marks entering the season. They will find out a lot about themselves against the Braves on Friday night. Ypsi wins 26-21.

Huron/Erie Mason: The Chiefs dropped the JV team it has played the last two years in the opener. It won't matter, Huron scores early and often against the Eagles Huron in a rout 42-13.

Jefferson/Tecumseh: This is a tough opener for the Bears. If they can pull off a win it could set the tone for the season. Unfortunately so could a loss. Tecumseh wins 20-14.

Airport/Bedford: Bedford is still smarting from last years 3 touchdown loss. This should be a great game and could go either way. Airport wins a thriller 35-34.

SMCC/Crockett: This looks like a tough matchup for the Falcons. A loss won't hurt them and a win could really give them confidence. This game will prepare them for a long playoff run. Crockett wins 18-14.

Good predictions but I differ on a few. I can't see Airport giving up 34 but as you say this is a toss up but lower scoring. Milan beats Ypsi. Smcc over Crockett. Jeferson's speed will be helped by the new turf at Tecumseh switch the scores Jefferson 20 Tecumseh 14

I agree with all the Wins and Losses but Huron will not win by that much... they will win but not by that... and Airport will not be a thriller in my opinion they return great speed

How does a preconference win in game one prepare a team for a long playoff run. This makes absolutely no sense.

Bedford football program is not even close to the level of Airports... and this is not a down year at all for Airport... will not be a thriller...Flat Rock may be able to beat the Blue Streaks with a strong running back... and yes Grosse Ile will finally win a game but not by 20

Your Right, GI will not win by 20....30 is a much more accurate number.

I wouldn't be jumping the gun on a 34-14 win for GI. If they win it will be close. Defense wins games and both teams have given up a ton of points in the past. The team that can squeak out a better defensive show will win the best of the bottom wich could be the only win for the year for either team.

Need to check you on the Ida / Flat Rock game. Ida does not return 25 seniors. They returns 15, 4 of which were starters last year. Oh, by the way, Flat Rock returns 17 seniors. OOPs!

Bedford/Airport Thriller??? hmmm i dont think so. Airport wins by 3 TDs like last year.

Airport should have a pretty good team, but there is an awful lot of confidence that the Jets will win decisively.

Remember that Bedford has a school of 700-800 more students. They got much better throughout last season and now have a full year under their belt with head coach Jeff Wood. The Mules will also have the best player on the field in Mason Cole (C/DE).

Airport might win the game, but lets not get ahead of ourselves and assume that it will be an easy task.

I agree with Jumping the gun on GI...except the other way. They will post a goose egg...just like the JV did.
