A perfect six for six last week on picks but missed the point spread really bad on the SP/Shelby game. For what it’s worth, here’s my take on week four.
TC Roberson at ASHBROOK
Ashbrook got into the win column for the first time this year on their visit to Asheville last week. This week they will play host to another school from the Asheville area, the TC Roberson Rams. The Green Wave prevails again for their second win. Ashbrook by 10.
EAST GASTON at Lincolnton
The Wolves are struggling this year and the Warriors will have a legitimate shot at posting a win for the next two weeks and gain some much needed momentum before entering conference play. East Gaston takes advantage of home field and wins a close one. EG by 1.
East Lincoln at FORESTVIEW
The Jaguars are a scoring machine but they will probably face their toughest competition thus far in the East Lincoln Mustangs. From a fans viewpoint this could be the most interesting game for Big South fans this Friday. The Mustangs are performing well as the defending 2A state champs and they can score points with the best of them. Forestview and East Lincoln both look to be contenders for their conference crown and this game will be a good indicator of just where both teams are at this stage. I’ll give the edge to the home team Jags. Forestview by 10.
Rocky River at HUNTER HUSS
Hunter Huss easily notched their first win of the season last week against Bessemer City with Moore back in the mix. They will have to step it up even more if they are to get a win this week against the Ravens from Mint Hill. R. River by 10.
LAKE NORMAN CHARTER at Highland Tech
The Knights will be back coming to Gaston County this week for a test against the Highland Tech Rams. Last week they got their offense in gear and hung 51 points on Pine Lake Prep to stay undefeated. They should have similar results against similar competition this Friday. LNC by 28.
NORTH GASTON at Cherryville
The Wildcats have indeed found a way to turn last years close losses into wins. Confidence should be running high in Dallas and they should have no trouble in keeping their record unblemished this week against the Ironmen before entering conference play after an open date next week. NG by 14.
Q Foundation at SOUTH POINT
The Red Raiders will be at this week to face the Fighting Falcons of the Q Foundation for the first meeting ever between these two teams. After a close game with Shelby last week I look for the Red Raiders to have this game under wraps by the end of the first half. South Point by 35.
