Perfect weeks elevate Marini, Davis

Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 2:23 am

TOM DAVIS, News-Sentinel sports editor

Last week: 10-0

Overall: 42-18

Adams Central over Southern Wells – Flying Jets aren't great, but Raiders are worse.

Heritage over Bluffton – Patriots have only lost to great teams this year, and Tigers aren't that.

South Adams over Garrett – I just don't trust the Railroaders at all this season.

Leo over Woodlan – Lions roll over every team in the ACAC and Warriors will be no different.

Homestead over Carroll – In a close game, I'm going with the home team.

East Noble over Columbia City – Knights have only failed to show up 1 1/2 times this year. They'll find a way in this one.

Norwell over DeKalb – As last week demonstrated, you can only hope to contain the Knights, not shut them down.

Churubusco over Culver Academy – I don't feel real confident in making this pick.

Cathedral over Bishop Dwenger – A week ago, I would've probably picked differently. Certainly not now.

Snider over Elkhart Central – The Panthers deliver fifth straight L to Blue Blazers.

THE PIG, News-Sentinel football expert

Last week: 8-2

Overall: 40-20

Adams Central over Southern Wells - Flying Jets go on the road and get a victory.

Heritage over Bluffton - Patriots were latest Leo victim; they will rebound.

Garrett over South Adams - Can the Railroaders rebound from the pounding at Woodlan? The Pig thinks so.

Leo over Woodlan - Lions big, but Warriors learn a lot in preparation for 2A playoffs.

Carroll over Homestead - Chargers' offense should score enough to win.

Columbia City over East Noble - The Pig has a feeling about the Eagles.

Norwell over DeKalb - Knights make it two straight.

Culver Academy over Churubusco - Win or lose, great way for 'Busco to see where it is.

Cathedral over Bishop Dwenger - Can the Saints keep it close?

Elkhart Central over Snider - The last month the Panthers have been treading water.

GLENN MARINI, WANE-TV sports director

Last week: 10-0

Overall: 44-16

Adams Central over Southern Wells – Jets hitting their stride after beating rival Starfires.

Heritage over Bluffton – Pats' passing attack will help tame the Tigers.

Garrett over South Adams – Railroaders have been consistently inconsistent, though.

Woodlan at Leo – I'm taking the upset. Then again, I've been wrong before.

Carroll over Homestead – It comes down to stopping the Tranquills. I take the Tranquills.

East Noble over Columbia City – Less confident in this pick after EN's loss at Norwell.

Norwell over DeKalb – Knights have more talent and depth. Sorry, Barons.

Churubusco over Culver Academy – Interested to see how Busco reacts in a close game.

Cathedral over Bishop Dwenger – Speaking of inconsistent…

Snider over Elkhart Central – Trip doesn't help, but game is certainly winnable.

JOE WHELAN, WANE-TV weekend sports anchor

Last week: 9-1

Overall: 40-20

Adams Central over Southern Wells – A win over the Starfires was a turnaround for Jets.

Heritage over Bluffton – Patriots turn things around after a tough loss to Leo.

Garrett over South Adams – The Railroaders are in dire need of a win – they get it Friday.

Leo over Woodlan – The Warriors will be a tough out, but the Lions are rolling to another ACAC crown

Carroll over Homestead – The Spartans are tough and feisty, but the Chargers found their explosiveness again last week

East Noble over Columbia City – Too much firepower for the Eagles to slow down.

Norwell over DeKalb – Was the win over East Noble a fluke? Maybe, but it motivates Norwell to another W this week.

Churubusco over Culver Academy – The Eagles at home are a tough out for anybody, Culver will learn that on Friday.

Bishop Dwenger over Cathedral – The Saints will be fired up after their first loss of the season.

Snider over Elkhart Central – The Panthers shouldn't have trouble pushing the Blue Blazers around.
