The Wolves flirted with trouble before putting Wynnewood away in the second half to open the season, then struggled offensively in last week's loss to Prague. It doesn't get any easier against the Chargers, as Petersen and Co. help Heritage Hall to a 3-0 start.
Bishop McGuinness at MillwoodPlot: The Irish entered the season with the state's longest winning streak in the 11-man ranks. Two weeks into the season, McGuinness is still searching for its first win. Millwood came into this year looking to bounce back from a disappointing 4-6 finish in 2007. The Falcons have done that so far, going 1-1 after a close loss to Douglass in last week's Soul Bowl. Starring: Millwood sophomore quarterback Kevonte Richardson has looked good so far this season, having improved after starting as a freshman last season. McGuinness tight end/defensive end Gabe Ikard is the leader on both sides of the ball and needs a big night against the Falcons. The pick: McGuinness 17, Millwood 14. The Falcons certainly will keep it closer than last year's 62-0 thrashing at the hands of the Irish. But it'll be the Irish picking up the win here. McGuinness needs this win more, trying to build some momentum.
Pick to clickBryce Moore, RB, Tuttle Faces: Hilldale at Tuttle So far: Moore has 422 yards and six touchdowns in the Tigers' first two games this season, including 248 and five last week in Tuttle's 49-7 blowout over Kingfisher. Tonight: Last year, Moore put up huge numbers in many games but sometimes struggled against the best the Tigers played. He busted out last week against a team the Tigers have struggled with. Hilldale is 0-2 and doesn't figure to fare better on the road against Moore and the Tigers.
