SMCC (4-0) is coming off of a 28-0 victory over Grosse Ile while Airport (3-1) beat Flat Rock 56-21. The Falcons won last seasons game 27-7 and have won eight of the last ten games in the series. In fact, SMCC has won forty-one of the fiftey-one games play between these two teams since 1954.
Airport put up a lot of points against Flat Rock last week and most came on the ground. Dylan Meiring and Bryce Cole continue to provide the offensive output for the Jets. Defensively, Airport has the task of slowing down the Falcons high powered offense.
SMCC keeps showing league opponents week in and week out that they appear to be the class of the league. They lead the league in both points scored and points against. They also have the best coach in the Huron League.
Airport has stepped up this season and surprised many a little bit, but things get tougher from here on out for the Jets. Airport will have to find a way to force some Falcon turnovers and find a way to get into the endzone at least three times. I just don't see that happening. Prediction: SMCC 35 Airport 7
