Bishop McGuinness vs. Bishop Kelley Capsule...
By Robert Przybylo
Bishop Kelley (0-1) at Bishop McGuinness (1-0)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Pribil Stadium (I’ll be there)
Why the Comets can win: Because they’re looking to bounce back from a disappointing outing against Enid. And what’s the best way to do that? You can throw everything out when it comes to rivals getting together, and this is an underrated battle.
McGuinness (W – Douglass 9-7)
Why the Irish can win: Because this team showed how mentally tough it was last week. After losing QB Quinn Shanbour a day before the Douglass game, expected some confusion and miscues. Camden Tharp did his job and Brandon Nguyen became a player that I will definitely pay attention to.
Key matchup: Irish running game vs. Kelley front seven. McGuinness was able to win that battle against Douglass despite Tharp and LaRone Richardson really not producing any big numbers. This is a great tandem of runners so look for that to improve Friday.
The pick: Irish 16, Comets 9. If McGuinness can contain its emotion against its rival, then this might be a little worse than that. Expecting Tharp to have a much better game now that there is no quarterback competition. And this should be a good night for Richardson.
