Can’t watch NFL RedZone, as youngest boy isn’t allowing me to watch as he’s not getting any homework done. So we’ll check our picks and see how we did (21-5 going into Friday):
PROVIDENCE 62, Arlington County Day 26. I’m actually surprised ACD put up three-plus scores in this one. 22-5.
FIRST COAST 54, Atlantic Coast 17. Not surprised at how far FC is ahead of most local teams. 23-5.
MANDARIN 42, Baldwin 0. Big homecoming win for the Mustangs to improve to 4-1. 24-5.
Hilliard 35, BISHOP SNYDER 0. Ouch. That one hurts. I hadn’t seen much from Hilliard before this one. 24-6.
BOLLES 35, Vanguard 6. Bulldogs make statement win on the road that they’re not done yet. 25-6.
PALATKA 56, Bradford 13. Tornadoes can begin to think about wrestling now. 26-6.
WEST NASSAU 28, Chiefland 22. Warriors on the move back to 3-2 now. 27-6.
Oakleaf 35, CLAY 21. Knights rule Clay County and now, perhaps, I’m off the bandwagon, but it was a 7A team the Blue Devils faced. 27-7.
FLETCHER 56, Creekside 14. I saw this one coming. 28-7.
COLUMBIA 24, Englewood 0. Seems like the Tigers have taken their feet off the gas early each of the past two weeks. 29-7.
Menendez 42, FERNANDINA BEACH 7. St Johns seems to be ahead of Nassau, all things considered. Didn’t call that one right. 29-8.
ED WHITE 40, Orange Park 7. Raiders can start thinking about wrestling a bit more, too. 30-8.
LEE 43, Terry Parker 7. Who had Lee in the 5-0 pool? I know I didn’t. 31-8.
BISHOP KENNY 34, Paxon 12. We should have gone to this game Friday night. Perhaps the next Crusader home game. 32-8.
Cocoa 37, RAINES 28. Vikings didn’t let down, Cocoa was just better. 32-9.
RIBAULT 62, Stanton 0. Ouch. Even when you see it coming….ouch. 33-9.
Fleming Island 25, RIDGEVIEW 21. Guess the Golden Eagles are in the “can’t figure ’em out” group this year. 33-10.
ST. AUGUSTINE 35, Ponte Vedra 14. Jackets are not in the “can’t figure ’em out” group. They’re only going to get better. 34-10.
EPISCOPAL 7, Trinity Prep 0. Tougher game than I expected, but Eagles stay unbeaten. 35-10.
YULEE 56, Wolfson 6. This is the Yulee I expected to see for most of the season. 36-10.
GAME OF THE WEEK: Westside 21, Baker County 13. Forest Whitaker, alas, could not join CeCe Jefferson on the D-line for Baker. 37-10.
So an 18-5 week after a 19-5 week. Not too bad.
