Riverview @ Jefferson

Riverview (2-1) is coming off of a 27-10 victory over Airport while Jefferson (0-3) fell at Milan by a score of 47-12. Jefferson won last season's game by a score of 51-41. The Bears have dominated this series over the last decade going 7-3 in that time span.

Riverview got back on the winning track last week and was powered by their running game which racked up nearly 400 yards on the ground. Defensively the Pirates were better and that trend should continue this week..

Jefferson is still trying to get their first win under new coach Bruce Pickens. The Bears have a  new diversified offense this season but it hasn't produced significant results yet. The defense continues to struggle and has given up 122 ponits in the first three games.

On paper this looks like Riverview in a runaway. I'm not so sure, Jefferson gives Riverview fits. This game will be closer than many expect. Pick: Riverview 35 Jefferson 21

If bosanac shows up for Jefferson, this game will be closer. Threat on Offense and Defense but hasnt figured it out yet. Lamb is undersize but pound for pound best athlete on the field each week. Riverview defense seems to be doing there job lately. Winner: Riverview but close

This game is usually pretty close. Jefferson has benefitted in more recent times. They are still getting it together, with the new coach, offense and defense. I think this will be very close. Not sure if Riverview passes much, if not, Jefferson will have a good chance for the upset. Pass defense is rough.

I think Riverview will handle Jefferson if they play any defense.
