Both teams are coming off of wins in week one. Riverview (1-0) shrugged of a slow 1st half and defeated Garden City 41-15 while Milan (1-0) came from behind to defeat Marshall 26-21. Milan won year's early season match up 41-28 and have won six out of the last ten games in this league rivalry.
Milan felt the effects of two Ypsi Lincoln transfers last week as junior QB E.J. Medvecz led the Big Reds in rushing while junior LB Cortez Gray led the defense with 10 tackles. The Big Reds are more than just those players and seem to be picking up where they left off the Huron League season last year.
Riverview took a half before they really got going in week 1. Senior QB Drew Krull will once again lead the offense as the Pirates have mutliple offensive threats. Defensively, Tyler Chase and company will have to find a way to slow down Medvecz and Big Red sophomore RB Trace Lindeman.
This could be a very good game. Riverview coach Derek McLaughlin is a seasoned veteran and has seen offenses like Milan's in the Downriver League. With that said, I will not pick against the Big Reds. Prediction: Milan 21 Riverview 14
