Airport (1-2) is coming off of a 27-10 loss to Riverview while Flat Rock (0-3) lost to Grosse Ile 42-7. Airport won last season's game 14-7. Airport has won eleven straight in the rivalry that has been played every year since 1959. The Jets currently hold a 28-26 advantage in the series since then.
Flat Rock has had back to back weeks against two of the favorites in the Huron League. The Rams most likely can't stop anyone but may be able to score some points through the air this week.
Airport has been competitive. The defense seems to be improving while the offense is getting better as well. The Jets need a running back to step up and lead the team.
This was once a great rivalry but Airport's dominance of late has taken away some of the luster. The Rams could use a win in the series but that will be a tall order. Pick: Airport 35 Flat Rock 13
