Be Sure to check out the podcast: Flat Rock @ Airport
Flat Rock (1-3) suffered their third straight defeat in their 49-20 loss against Grosse Ile while Airport (1-3) suffered it's 3rd straight loss after an opening week win over Dundee as the Jets fell 30-14 to Riverview. Flat Rock won last season's matchup in OT as the Rams won 34-28, but Airport leads the all-time series 30-27.
Flat Rock once again played well in the first half against a quality opponent as the Rams finished their 3 week run against three of the better teams in the league. The offense has been balanced between the run and pass and relies on QB Jacob Dotson, RB Cameron Stitt and WR Anthony Higginbotham. The defense still gives up too many points, but is consistently better than last season.
Airport's woes continued last week against Riverview and the Jets must find a way to right the ship. The offense still revolves around junior RB Michael Foor while junior Tanner Jeska continues to show he is a capable QB. The defense continues to be led by senior LB's Justin Goretski and Brent Mossburg.
This is a must win game for both teams. Flat Rock could find themselves in a positive position with the toughest part of their schedule behind them if they could get the win. Airport has the teeth of their schedule in weeks 6-8 and a win would give them some much needed confidence. Prediction: Airport 28 Flat Rock 26
