PERK'S PICKS FOR WEEK 5

PERK’S PICKS FOR WEEK 5 OF THE 2017 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE

 

This year we’re focusing on the Southern Piedmont 1A, South Fork 2A, Southwestern 2A and Big South 3A Conferences.  Last week I predicted 16 out of 19 winners for a 84% average. Through the first two weeks I’ve picked 43 out of 55 winners for a 78% average.  My maximum point differential is 40 points even if I think a team will win by more than 40 (my ‘mercy rule’).

 

2017 SOUTHERN PIEDMONT 1A

The majority of the Southern Piedmont has this week off before entering conference play next week. The Bessemer City Yellow Jacket defense has only allowed one TD this year and they go up against a revived and high scoring North Lincoln team this week.  After their ‘bye week’ Mountain Island Charter will be looking to improve to 3-1 against Commonwealth at home as will Union Academy at they take to the road to face Northside Christian.

2017 SOUTHFORK 2A

Bandys has only one loss against FT Foard and they should be contested this week when they travel to Hickory to take on the Red Tornados.  East Lincoln will host an East Gaston team that is rebuilding and Lincolnton will travel to North Gaston on Thursday night for a contest that was originally scheduled on September 1 but was rescheduled to this week after storms halted the game two weeks ago.  Newton-Conover will travel to Lenoir to face a Hibriten team that has looked formidable so far this year. West Lincoln will be looking to get back into the win column this week at East Burke after a two point loss to Foard last week.

2017 SOUTHWESTERN 2A

An angry East Rutherford team will host Patton this week after Burns handed them their first loss last week and the Hilltoppers of RS Central will be looking to get above .500 while hosting South Caldwell.  Shelby, who had a close call against county rival Crest last week, will face another Cleveland County rival as they travel to Kings Mountain.  South Point will look to continue their winning ways at home against the up and coming Stuart Cramer Storm.
