Grosse Ile opened the season with a 42-21 victory at Onsted last week while Flat Rock opened the Tom Oestrike era with a 12-7 loss to Ida. Grosse Ile won last season's match up on the Island 51-12.
Grosse Ile dominated an inexperienced Wildcat team last week by running for over 300 yards. The Red Devils were pretty one dimensional, as they only threw the ball four times at Onsted. That may have been by design as Onsted only returned five defensive starters from last years 3-6 squad.
Flat Rock is coming off of a disappointing loss to Ida. The Rams dominated the line of scrimmage against a team that qualified for the playoffs last season. Flat Rock must find a way to improve in the red zone as they converted only one of five trips in scoring territory.
This could be an interesting match up. The Red Devils certainly have had more success recently but Flat Rock has twenty-two seniors on the roster. Grosse Ile will most likely have to throw the ball a bit more this week if they want to move the ball. Pick: Grosse Ile 27 Flat Rock 21
