Be sure to check out the podcast. SMCC @ Grosse Ile
SMCC (2-2) is coming off of a 7-6 home loss to Huron while Grosse Ile (4-0) continued their undefeated season with a 49-20 victory over Flat Rock. The Falcons won the game last year in Monroe by a score of 35-7 and lead the all-time series 40-14-2.
SMCC will look to rebound this week by using their punishing ground game against perhaps the best rushing defense in the league. Junior Collin Woolford and senior Kevin LaPrad are a threat to go the distance every time they touch the ball. Defensively, the Falcons have been solid most weeks and will match up with a very capable Red Devil ground game.
Grosse Ile continues their improbable march to an undefeated season. The Red Devils rushed for over 400 yards against Flat Rock last week and rely on the power running of seniors Andrew Vollmerhausen and Josh Moskall. The defense has been stout against the run all season as senior Dominic Trembly anchors a very good Red Devil defensive line.
This ought to be a great match up between two teams who like to run the ball. The game could be decided through the air as senior WR Justin Moores against the Falcon secondary is a key match up to watch. A win here for the Islanders could set up an undefeated showdown against Milan next week, but don't count out the defending league champs just yet. Check out the podcast for my prediction: Click here
