KAZ’S FEARLESS FORECAST
Games This Week
WEST ORANGE-STARK over SILSBEE—The Tigers should give the Mustangs their most difficult challenge of the young 2017 season. The huge offensive statistics that the ‘Stangs rolled up in the first two games should be a bit harder to attain against this good Silsbee team. WO-S also wants to protect its 29-game winning streak.
CROSBY over LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE—The Bears had a great performance Friday night against the Orangefield Bobcats, but this bunch from Crosby comes in with some jaw-dropping statistics. The Battlin’ Bears need to pick up where they left off last week if they expect to pull off the upset in front of this Homecoming crowd.
JASPER over BRIDGE CITY—The Cardinals’ trip up to the Piney Woods could very well result in a third straight frustrating setback. Hopefully the Redbirds will improve enough to give the hosting Bulldogs a run for their money.
ORANGEFIELD over BEAUMONT KELLY—Neither team has shown much signs of life so far this season, but the Bobcats should be able to even their record to 1-1 when the final gun sounds Friday night in Beaumont.
HULL-DAISETTA over DEWEYVILLE—The hosting Bobcats have had two weeks to prepare for the Pirates and that should be a difference-maker in this contest.
BRYAN ALLEN ACADEMY over ORANGE COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN—The Lions are still looking for that first victory of the season and could very well still be looking after this game.
LAMAR over NICHOLLS STATE—The Big Red ran into a buzz-saw at Hammond Saturday night, as Southeastern Louisiana chalked up their first win of the season, 49-21 at Lamar’s expense. But the Colonels are raging mad after being crushed by defending Southland Conference champion Sam Houston State 66-17 Saturday night and will come to Beaumont Saturday night with a huge chip on their shoulders.
MCNEESE STATE over STEPHEN F. AUSTIN—The Cowboys are riding a nifty 3-1 record and will travel to meet the Lumberjacks full of vim and vigor after knocking off Houston Baptist 27-12 Saturday night in SLC action.
