This is the game of the week in the Huron League. Grosse Ile (3-0) is coming off of a 42-7 home victory over Flat Rock. SMCC (3-0) won on the road at Huron 28-0. Grosse Ile won last season's game on the Island 21-15. SMCC has won eight of the last ten meetings.
The Red Devils go on the road for the first time this season as they travel to Navarre Field. The offense has been impressive this season averaging 35 ppg while the defense has given up only sixteen points all season. The offense has been-multi dimensional this year and seemingly gets all the accolades but the defense has been more impressive.
SMCC must find a way to get over the injury bug as two important defensive players (Antonelli and Courturier) are likely to miss Friday's game. The offense showed it was more than just a running team last week by airing it out a bit when needed.
This has all the makings of a great game as each team has high hopes of dethroning Milan this year for league supremacy. There is high rankings, star power, great coaches and a historic field all involved in the match up. Pretty tough to pick a winner here but I will give it a shot. Pick: SMCC 22 Grosse Ile 21
