Blue Springs South at Lee’s Summit North (Friday Night Lights Tour Stop)
LS North is on a roll and looks to enter the post season still on a roll with a home win over the Jaguars. The Broncos, winners of 3 straight, will enjoy senior night with a win over a resilient Jaguars team.
Lee’s Summit at Truman (Friday Night Lights Tour Stop #2)
This is Truman’s Homecoming game which has everyone excited but the Patriots are winless at 0-8. The Tigers are looking to close the regular season strong as they come in off from a come from behind win at Liberty North. Expect a dominating win on this night for the visiting Tigers.
Lee’s Summit West at Ray Pec (Pub Pick of the week)
The Titans are playing for the #1 seed in the upcoming district playoffs. Ray Pec is currently #8 so there could be a rematch next week at the same venue. The Titans have too many offensive weapons for the visiting Panthers so the Titans get their wish for another win.
St. Michael at Clinton
St. Michael has had a couple of tough losses the past two weeks to pretty tough teams. The road trip for the Guardians this week will not be as tough as they tangle with the Cardinals. By the end of this one St. Michael will have returned to the victory column.
Summit Christian at Lincoln College Prep
Both teams have suffered defeats to Pembroke Hill, for SCA this just happened last week. Both teams enter with 6-2 records. The Eagles offense has been better this year and it will prove to be the difference on this Friday night.
Raytown South at Grain Valley (Wild Card game of the week)
Raytown South will want to follow their rival Raytown Blue Jays with a win over Grain Valley. However the Eagles are at home and playing for a winning record on the season. The Cardinals will fall to the Eagles in this one.
Northeastern State at Missouri Southern (MIAA TV Game of the week)
Two programs having a troubled season meet in this TV showcase on Saturday. Both teams have struggled in conference play so far with 0-7 records. The Lions have changed coaches in mid-season. Thanks to a better offense and being at home the Lions will secure their first win of the season.
Cincinnati Bengals at KC Chiefs (Celebrity Forecaster, Jason Lamb, Fox-4 TV)
In a game between two first-place teams both coming off last minute losses, I like the Chiefs to bounce back under the bright lights at Arrowhead Stadium. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes should be more comfortable playing in the spotlight now. The Chiefs defense will do just enough to preserve a 34-27 Chiefs victory on Sunday night.
