Peter Prognosticator's Pigskin
A 14-2 record in the
fourth week moves the season mark to 52-9,
which is an 85.2 percentage. Wins by the
North Carolina Tar Heels and Syracuse
Orangemen cost Peter a perfect week. Here's
the picks for week five.
CLINTON at WEST
BLADEN -- The Knights' strong play
continued a week ago at Pender even after
learning they had been declared ineligible
for the state playoffs. It was good to see.
But the toughest part of West Bladen's
season comes at the end, and it starts
against the once-beaten Dark Horses, who've
allowed only 75 points in seven games.
Should be a tough, hard-nosed high school
football game. Clinton 27, West Bladen 21.
EAST BLADEN at WALLACE-ROSE HILL -- One
of the top Class 2-A teams in the state
visits the top-ranked Class 1-A team in the
state with sole possession of first place in
the conference on the line. Doesn't get much
better than that. You know a turnover is
likely to decide this game. East Bladen 21,
Wallace-Rose Hill 20.
