Airport @ Grosse Ile

Grosse Ile (3-2) is coming off of a 38-36 double overtime victory over Milan While Airport (3-2) was beaten by SMCC 28-7. Airport won last seasons game 27-7 and have won four of the last five games in the series.

Grosse Ile made a nice comeback against Milan last week. The offense was led by Andrew Mitroka who threw for 247 yards and ran for another 76. Sophomore DT Dominic Trombley played what may had been his best game of the season as he recorded 9 solo tackles.

Airport's offense continues to center around RB Dylan Meiring who had over 100 yards against SMCC. The defense was once again led by A.J. Gorteski and Eddie Smith

This is a great match up and is a game that could go either way. GI has struggled against good defenses, but with Mitroka throwing the ball well that could change things. Airport's one dimensional offense may struggle with the Red Devils active LB's. Tough call, but I have to make a pick. Prediction: Grosse Ile 21 Airport 19

If you think Mitroka threw the ball well last game than you must not have seen the game. In the first half he was awful. Better in the second half, but overall he needs to play better and make better decisions.

Well I think Adrain runs the spread better then GI and airport came away with a win vs Adrain. I say airport gets the win.

Bitter Milan parent, Mitroka had a good game. Give him that.

If Mitroka has a big night GI wins, if he is somewhat held in check Airport wins. Airport 28 GI 20. EM

Huge game with a lot of play off pull for both team. If GI goes to the air this week I see a victory in the near future for the islanders. 28-21

This will be the closest game, but there are only 11 comments. My friends at Airport pull off the win.

Even though both schools have marching bands bigger than their football teams, it's Airport all the way.

Nothing like a good marching band. Those kids work hard.

Airport wins this one by 14 the weather will be the main factor. Rain and wind equals a infective passing game. Good weather GI wins, Airports secondary is questionable at best.

Then GI should build a dome.
