Please check out the podcast: Huron @ SMCC
The Chiefs (2-1) are coming off of a 39-24 home loss to Grosse Ile while SMCC (2-1) picked up a 44-15 victory over Flat Rock at Navarre Field. The Falcons defeated the Chiefs last season 27-7 and lead the all-time series 46-1. Huron's only victory against the Falcons came 30 years ago when the Chiefs won 42-6.
Huron struggled to run the ball against GI last week. Junior QB Brett McKay was able to throw for 267 yards and 3 TD's in the loss. The Chief's senior LB Nik Becker continued his strong senior season as he recorded 10 tackles.
The Falcons continue to rely on senior RB Kevin LaPrad and junior RB Collin Woolford. The running game continues to get better each week as the Catholics new offensive line gains valuable experience. SMCC's defense has only given up 21 points in league play after surrendering 30 in the season opener.
On paper this looks like a close game that could go either way. In the preseason I would have picked Huron in this match up, but the Falcons are playing much better than anticipated and they have reeled off 29 straight victories in the series. Prediction: SMCC 30 Huron 21
