Kaz’s Fearless Forecast
Games This Week
WEST ORANGE-STARK over JASPER—The Mustangs have had a tough time over the years beating the Bulldogs at home, but they are in a desperate situation—being winless on the 15th of September. The ‘Dogs are coming off a big 61-12 win over Houston Worthing and figure the ‘Stangs are ripe for the picking.
BRIDGE CITY over KIRBYVILLE—The Wildcats have yet to hit the win column in three tries and will pull out all the stops to get that first win of the season. The Cards just need to continue playing sound football to make sure the upset doesn’t happen.
COLDSPRING over ORANGEFIELD—The Bobcats will be visiting the No. 1-rated Class 3A team in the Houston area and one of the better 3A teams in the State of Texas. It certainly would be a feather in their caps if they can pull off this upset.
DEWEYVILLE over BURKEVILLE—The Pirates are on a roll with three impressive victories in their first three games and they should still be undefeated after this road game Friday night.
ORANGE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN over BRENHAM CHRISTIAN—The Lions have been crossing the enemy’s goal line with great consistency and should continue their winning ways with this kind of an offense.
LAMAR over INCARNATE WORD—The Cards should get back to their winning ways after running into a tough South Alabama team Saturday.
MCNEESE STATE over SIOUX FALLS—The Cowboys ran into a buzz-saw two weeks ago at Kansas and still made a fairly good showing against a major university. The Pokes have had a couple of weeks to heal from their “sacrificial lamb” game where they traded a good payday for a loss. McNeese is the only Southland conference team without a victory this season.
