Both teams are coming off of losses. SMCC (3-2) lost at home to Milan 35-22 while Riverview (2-3) fell at Flat Rock 38-3. The Pirates won last season's game 31-29.
SMCC keeps getting better and most likely lost to a better team in Milan last week. The Falcon ground game should give the porous Pirate run defense problems this week.
Up until last week Riverview proved they could score points using their speed. The defense was shredded by Flat Rock last week and much of the season.
Riverview's Jeff Stergalas is a coach who can usually match wits with veteran SMCC coach Jack Giarmo. This game could be a runaway but I see it as being a close game. Pick: SMCC 30 Riverview 21
