There’s just no room for error.
That led to the three of us finishing 12-2 on the week (we all missed on Grand Haven), and determining the winner with a tie-breaker.
I did not miss there.
Now the only question is if I close out the season like the Yankees’ Aroldis Chapman, or like the Cardinals’ Carlos Martinez (hint: one is very good, the other, not so much).
There are some important games on tap this week for teams hoping to keep playoff hopes alive, including Fruitport at Reeths-Puffer, Manistee at Muskegon Catholic and Caledonia at Grand Haven.
I like the Rockets to hold the Trojans off by a touchdown, and the Crusaders and the Bucs to slip by their opponents.
Oakridge travels to North Muskegon to play a strong Norse squad, with a showdown for the West Michigan Conference title looming against Ravenna next week.
Will the Eagles overlook the Norse? I don’t think so. Coach Cary Harger will have his team focused and will leave NM with a 14-point win. Ravenna will do its part, taking care of Hart to set up that showdown.
Meanwhile, Orchard View will remain undefeated with a win over Muskegon Heights, and Mona Shores and Muskegon both post victories before the collide next week in their annual showdown for the O-K Black title.
