Here are my terrible Grid Picks for Week 4!
Chewelah 14, Freeman 13
Oh you think I’m going to hop off the Chewelah bandwagon now? What do I look like? An Oregon Ducks fan? Anyways, as you can tell from Grid Picks the Cougars are the decided underdog in the matchup. Freeman is a perennial power, they’re undefeated, they destroyed Medical Lake last week 51-0. The Scotties basically left Medical Lake looking like this…
But you also have to consider that Chewelah’s defense has been quite good these past three weeks. The Cougars have only allowed two touchdowns in three games. I don’t care who you’re playing, that’s pretty darn good. Chewelah gets penetration behind the line. They swarm tackle. Newport is a pretty darn good football team and they still had trouble with the Cougar defense. This all considering that Chewelah doesn’t have a whole lot of kids to choose from and nobody is particularly big on the defense. So I’ll give them the puncher’s chance against Freeman.
Newport 21, Medical Lake 7
You see the photo above? Yes Medical Lake is coming off a whooping. Newport has some guys that can run in a hurry. That Newport QB Pancho is pretty darn good. I’d say you have to give Newport the edge over the lower half of the NEA League and Medical Lake is definitely in that lower half.
Deer Park 34, Lakeside 22
Which Deer Park team will show up this week? The one that got pummeled by St. Maries or the one that destroyed Colville. Deer Park’s Tyson Lim ran 31 times for 441 yards and three touchdowns in the Stags’ 42-16 victory over Colville last Friday. Lim also scored three touchdowns. I did some searching to find out just who this Tyson Lim was and here’s a photo…
Yep, Lakeside is screwed.
Colville 45, Riverside 7
Colville will be looking for revenge after their loss to Deer Park. And Riverside will be fumbling. You can add in the rest…
Wellpinit 21, Inchelium 14
This game – being played today – is probably going to be the most entertaining of the week. This teams are familiar with each other. It’s 8-man football so expect roughly 800 yards of combined offense. Wellpinit is trying to stay undefeated and I know Inchelium would love to spoil their season. Both teams have elusive runners and aren’t afraid to pass the ball. What do you get? Some crazy football. Buckle up.
Hunters 65, St. John 34
Hunters scored 86 points last week. You’ll have to excuse me as I pick the team that scored as many points as an NBA team while playing football. The Lions have a pretty solid combination of balanced running game and hard-hitting defense.
Reardan 20, Springdale 19
This actually is anybody’s football game. After watching the student section of Springdale at monday’s volleyball match against Chewelah – the Chargers have no shortage of high-energy guys. Meanwhile I’ve driven through Reardan and I’m unsure if anybody lives there.
San. Fran 2, Seattle 0
Let me spell it out. Seattle needs to fix its offensive problems in a hurry. They were held to a field goal against the LOS ANGELES RAMS – which is a team that will probably win five games this year. If Russell Wilson is the elite quarterback that everyone talks about, then he needs to score more than a field goal in a game. Also this should be a fun Twitter game when every Seahawks fan freaks out as Kaepernick kneels, then immediately forgets about it when Richard Sherman smartly protests in a postgame press conference.
EWU 44, Northern Arizona 43
Eastern Washington will be playing in a dome. That offense doesn’t need any help by being in a dome. Northern Arizona’s defense will be a sacrificial lamb in this game.
UW 25, Arizona 10
Hey look the Huskies are playing a Div. I football team this week!
