There is a big battle of 3-0 powers at Whitmer Memorial Stadium in Toledo tomorrow night. The Whitmer Panthers host the Rams of Toledo Rogers. Whitmer is currently the #2 team in R2 while Rogers is the number one team in R6. The winner of this one will pile up a lot of harbins. I look for a disciplined Whitmer team to win this one.

A big battle of 3-0 teams looms tomorrow night at Buckenmeyer Stadium in Napoleon. The Wildcats host the surprising Golden Bears of Bryan. Napoleon was a 35-0 winner over Bowling Green last week while Bryan rolled to 3-0 with a 43-14 win over Delta. This one could be a great game and I would not be suprised to see Bryan pull off a bit of a shocker.
The Edison Chargers are currently ranked fourth in R14. They can pile up some playoff points with a win over the Huron Tigers tomorrow night. Edison is hosting the 2-1 Tigers and is coming off a 44-6 win over Wellington. Huron is coming in after being shellacked 42-3 by Norwalk St. Paul. I look for Huron to win.

Lakota is currently in third place in R18 while the Streaks are ranked fourth in R22. Lakota was a 38-28 winner over Margaretta last week while the Crimson Streaks beat Gibsonburg 21-6.
