Sorry about missing last week, but without further ado, here are my Super Six Pack Picks for this Friday night.
Green County at Lone Oak
Green County is a ranked team in Class 2A. That's nice. I don't think it will be nice enough to upset the Flash. Lone Oak got a scare from Graves County last Friday, but survived a 17-7 battle. I think Lone Oak's offense gets back on track Friday and wins big. Lone Oak 45, Green County 21
Massac County at Benton
Massac County is looking more and more impressive as the weeks go forward. Jarelle Johnson has really improved as a quarterback and is one of the best weapons in the area. Benton looked impressive running up a big 40-14 win over West Frankfort last weekend, so the Rangers should give the Pats a game. I don't think they'll be able to pull the upset. Massac continues to be in the drivers' seat in the SIRR Ohio Division. Massac County 34, Benton 20
Belleville Althoff at Marion
Marion has just one loss on the year; at unbeaten Cahokia. Belleville Althoff is ranked #10 at 4-1 in Class 4A. They will provide a big challenge for the 'Cats. But I like Marion at home. Marion 29, Althoff 28
Reidland at Murray
Murray has showed some chinks in the armor the last few weeks. Their defense was diced up by Ballard and Fulton County in a pair of wins. They got things back on track with a 17-0 win over Trigg last Friday, but Trigg offense has been struggling all year. Reidland came back to earth with a 34-7 loss at Heath. I think the 'Hounds are in for another tough night with a trip to Murray. The Tigers continue their run at a 10-0 regular season. Murray 38, Reidland 6
Calloway County at Fulton County
At first glance, this should appear to be a blowout. Not so fast. Calloway has struggled mightily recently and the Pilots, with their new-found rushing attack, have given some opponents fits (just not Mayfield where they lost 51-0 last week.) I think the Pilots play the Lakers tough, but too much Tyrell in the end. Calloway wins in a close one. Calloway County 28, Fulton County 19
Graves County at Marshall County
I have to say. Lance Gregory and his coaching job might be one of the most impressive things I've noticed this year. Graves County, during pre-season, didn't look like a team that would win many games much less be very competitive. Then we hit the regular season and the Eagles have proved to be more than competitive, they've proven they could be a factor the 6A first district race. They should move to 2-0 in the district and all but lock up a playoff spot with a win over a struggling Marshals team. Jake Clapp is one of the more dynamic quarterbacks and the Eagles rushing attack is impressive to say the least. And I dare you to find me a team that plays harder on defense. I like the Eagles big on Friday. Graves County 31, Marshall County 0
