Be sure to check out the podcast: SMCC @ Airport
SMCC (2-3) is coming off of a 28-0 loss to Grosse Ile while Airport (1-4) lost to Flat Rock 22-3. SMCC won last years contest by a score of 49-7 and lead the all-time series 43-10.
The Falcons were shut out last week and turned the ball over 3 times against Grosse Ile. SMCC will continue to run their straight T formation with three backs and the QB getting chances to run the ball. The defense which has played well enough all season is led by Justin LaPlante and Wyatt O'Brien.
Airport has struggled to score as of late and are averaging less than 10 ppg in Huron League play. Junior RB Michael Foor continues to get a bulk of the carries for the Jets. The defense has been roughed up lately and still has the bulk of their schedule coming up.
Both teams are in need of a win. The Falcons are the defending league champs, but has lost two in a row. Airport had high hopes entering the season with a host of starters returning on both sides of the ball, but are staring directly at another possible 1-8 season.
