Last week: 7-3
Carmel over Carroll – Greyhounds take away Tranquill brothers - to a degree - and the Chargers won't be electric.
North Side over Snider – History has to be altered at some point and Panthers' reign ceases Friday.
Bishop Dwenger over East Noble – Catholic team playing on a bishop-blessed field? Way too much for Knights to overcome.
New Haven over Norwell – Bulldogs won't be upset again, even by the scalding-hot Knights.
Concordia Lutheran over Bishop Luers – Cadet offense, scratch that, defense proves dominant.
Bremen over Woodlan – Balanced Lion offense proves better than one-dimensional Warriors.
South Adams over Southwood – Tougher league has prepared Starfires for this upset.

Last week: 6-4
Carmel over Carroll - Chargers put up a better fight than many expect.
Snider over North Side - Everything points to a Redskins victory here, but The Pig just isn't buying it ... yet.
Bishop Dwenger over East Noble - East Noble on the turf at Saint Francis? Good. But the Saints are no slouch either, and are peaking.
New Haven over Norwell - Magical second-half run for the Knights ends.
Concordia Lutheran over Bishop Luers - Knights have looked better last two weeks, but Cadets have looked impressive for months.
Woodlan over Bremen - Jaylin Bennett makes the Warriors go, but more weapons than many think at coach Sherwood Haydock's disposal.
Southwood over South Adams - Can the Starfires score enough to contend with Southwood? The Pig says no.

Carmel over Carroll – I'm one of the few who think Carroll will make this a game.

Bishop Dwenger over East Noble – EN's losses bother me more than Dwenger's.
New Haven over Norwell – This one will come down to big plays. Hogue and Vasquez make big plays look easy.
Concordia Lutheran over Bishop Luers – Morrison to Minich becoming a lethal combination.
Bremen over Woodlan – Bennett has impressed, but so did Bremen last week against Busco.
Southwood over South Adams – Starfires pulled one out last week, but doing it again may be tough task.
