Huron @ Riverview

Both teams limp into this game with 1-2 records. Huron lost last week to Milan 35-8 while Riverview lost to Jefferson 51-41. Riverview won last season's matchup 20-14.

Huron has been able to run the ball this season but have struggled when throwing the ball. Defensively Huron has given up a lot of yardage on the ground.

Offensively Riverview has a ton of speed and should put up some points. Defensively the Pirates have struggled all season trying to stop teams from running between the tackles.

Another intriguing matchup this week. The winner keeps their playoff hopes alive while the loser would most likely be on the outside looking in. Pick: Riverview 23 Huron 21

Riverview has too much speed for Huron!

They do have some speed. So does Huron though.

Not Markus Samuels/Josh Smith Speed!

Notice I said Riverview speed first.

Huron has some kids that can run. Obviously I know that because I coach the track team. Williams and Robinson are both very fast especially out of the gate.

Riverview won't win any games without changing up the defense! Coaches need to leave the stubbornness out and win some football games!

View is better team than last week. Good win for Jeff, but they'll come back to earth with FR this week.

NBH unfortunetly will get an angry group of Pirates this week...they have cannons, Natives have arrows.

Could be another shoot-out, so if you like TD's and don't care about D....get a ticket and enjoy the ride.

If your a true Football fan, save your money and Tums for another time.

Has Kalbfleisch changed the offense yet?

If Riverview gave up 51 to Jefferson, I think Huron will win the game.

Can't argue with the logic of giving up 51 to Jeff to conclude they'll lose to Huron. They've gotta be able to stop somebody. IF they can get 50% stops on their opponents possessions they should win most games. That's a BIG IF! The offense will keep them in games but with that D Huron will not have to throw.

Agree this is a must win for both teams. Niether of them will go through the rest of the season undefeated. So losing this game may have boys starting to tune out and looking ahead to basketball, wrestling, swimming or even possible training for crew.

Huron has to still face Airport and GI. I don't see them making it past either.

Riverview still has to go through GI and SMCC as well as Consortium. I had them losing 3 this year but not 2 at this early stage.

Good Luck to all the boys!

Riverview is going to beat the feathers off of Huron!! It's going to be a blow out, with the ground wet and the ball muddy the deffence of the pirates will destroy the chiefs. 42-14
