And just like that, just four weeks remain in the regular season.
We have been blessed with great weather on Friday nights so far this year, with Week 6 shaping up to be another dry one around the area.
Blitz is a bear that tolerates all seasons, but there is nothing worse than wet fur.
Let’s hope it stays dry on Fridays til late November.
Onto the winners of Week 6.
Last week: 16-4 (.800)
Overall: 95-21 (.818)
BISHOP DWENGER AT NORTHROP. The Bruins have not allowed less than 37 points in a game so far this season. While the Saints’ offense isn’t necessarily dynamic, it has more than enough firepower to win this one. BLITZ SAYS BISHOP DWENGER BY 18.
BISHOP LUERS AT NORTH SIDE. With a 3-0 record in the SAC, many don’t realize that Luers controls its destiny in the league and does not play Snider or Carroll. That makes this one a big one for the Knights. North Side has seemingly found its way the last few weeks with Brauntae Johnson as QB1, but the opposition hasn’t necessarily been top tier. Which team makes less mistakes? BLITZ SAYS NORTH SIDE BY 3.
SNIDER AT HOMESTEAD. Typically, this matchup is one we circle every season. But after Homestead’s loss to Bishop Dwenger in which it blew a 14-point lead, there are questions on if this one is close. Are the Spartans equipped to slow down the Snider rushing attack? BLITZ SAYS SNIDER BY 14.
SOUTH SIDE AT CONCORDIA LUTHERAN. Can either team stop the other’s offense? Neither team has been able to slow down the opposition much, a combined 475 points allowed through five weeks. First to 50? BLITZ SAYS CONCORDIA LUTHERAN BY 7.
WAYNE AT CARROLL. How does Carroll respond after last week’s loss to Snider? Wayne can fling it all over the field, but the defense has yet to face a team as explosive as the Chargers. That’s bad news. BLITZ SAYS CARROLL BY 28.
BELLMONT AT LEO. Hey, the Braves scored last week! Baby steps. BLITZ SAYS LEO BY 41.
COLUMBIA CITY AT NEW HAVEN. The Eagles proved they were legit last year in a 42-point thrashing of the ‘dogs. We have the same questions about CC this season. But New Haven is a much better squad than 2022. What gives in a battle of undefeateds? BLITZ SAYS NEW HAVEN BY 5.
DEKALB AT HUNTINGTON NORTH. After starting the season off with a very difficult schedule, the Vikings were able to get into the win column last week. Can HN slow down junior RB Caiden Hinkle? BLITZ SAYS HUNTINGTON NORTH BY 2.
EAST NOBLE AT NORWELL. A good bounce-back opportunity for East Noble, particularly after a 45-0 loss to Norwell last season. BLITZ SAYS EAST NOBLE BY 22.
JAY COUNTY AT WOODLAN. The Patriots have struggled to score points the last few weeks. That will be an issue again on Friday in Woodburn. BLITZ SAYS WOODLAN BY 20.
LAPEL AT HERITAGE. After last week’s disappointing performance, Heritage will get right on its home field. BLITZ SAYS HERITAGE BY 18.
SOUTH ADAMS AT ADAMS CENTRAL. First time in awhile this game doesn’t have huge ACAC title implications. Starfires will bring their best, but it’s just no match for this year’s Flying Jets. BLITZ SAYS ADAMS CENTRAL BY 23.
SOUTHERN WELLS AT BLUFFTON. Final tune up for the Tigers before they finish the season with Heritage, Adams Central and Lakeland. BLITZ SAYS BLUFFTON BY 41.
ANGOLA AT FAIRFIELD. The Hornets may very well be the best 0-5 team in the state. That said, beating Fairfield is a tough task. BLITZ SAYS FAIRFIELD BY 8.
CENTRAL NOBLE AT LAKELAND. Led by an ultra-talented sophomore class, the Lakers may be the most improved team in the area from 2022. Just too much offensive talent for the Cougars to contain. BLITZ SAYS LAKELAND BY 21.
EASTSIDE AT PRAIRIE HEIGHTS. The Panthers have lost 14 straight games to Eastside dating back to 2010. BLITZ SAYS EASTSIDE BY 24.
FREMONT AT CHURUBUSCO. This feels like a game that’s going to be decided on whether or not Fremont can stop the run. BLITZ SAYS CHURUBUSCO BY 7.
WEST NOBLE AT GARRETT. Two weeks ago, the Railroaders shocked many by slowing down the Lakeland offensive attack. Might they be able to do the same against the vaunted Chargers? A tougher challenge. BLITZ SAYS WEST NOBLE BY 15.
WARSAW AT MISHAWAKA. Another tough game for Warsaw. It has passed every test so far, so why doubt the undefeated Tigers at this point? BLITZ SAYS WARSAW BY 2.
PARK TUDOR AT BLACKHAWK CHRISTIAN. The season of learning continues for the Braves a ranked and undefeated 1A team. BLITZ SAYS PARK TUDOR BY 49.
