Be sure to check out the podcast. Milan @ Jefferson
Milan (3-0) is coming off of a 38-22 victory over Riverview while Jefferson (1-2) defeated Airport 20-7. Milan defeated Jefferson 50-15 last season and leads the all-time series 13-8-1.
Milan fell behind early last week against Riverview, but stormed back with a late 2nd quarter TD and an early 3rd quarter kick return for a TD. Trace Lindeman continues his brilliant four year career on both offense and defense while junior DT/OT Michael Furtney is becoming a future DI lineman.
Jefferson had played two very good teams in Grosse Ile and Ida and it showed when they played Airport last week. The Bears were able to force 6 miscues by the Jets and were able to put up enough points to get the win.
This doesn't look like a very good match up for the Bears. The Big Reds simply spread the field and exploit your weaknesses. Jefferson will need to force a few turnovers and maintain ball possession if they are going to have a shot at the upset. Prediction: Milan 34 Jefferson 19
