Gridiron's Picks

Friday, 14 October

Langly @ Salmon Arm: Two teams desperately looking for a divisional win square off on Friday. This is very evenly matched and will go down to the wire.  Look for the visitors to be the dominant team via the air and this will be the difference. GI's Pick: Langley by 7

Clarence Fulton @ Vernon: This game will be Vernon's biggest divisional test.  Fulton has some momentum on its side, but does not win the match-ups on the perimeter and up front. GI's Pick: Panthers by 17

Argyle @ Robert Bateman: Bateman runs the ball very well while Argyle conversely, throws it around as good as anyone.  The weather is supposed to be epic in terms of wind and rain.  The edge in these conditions goes to the Timberwolves.  GI's Pick: Bateman by 8

Valleyview @ Westsyde: Westsyde, though losing a recent spate of games, has been playing pretty good ball and they ought to build off of it nicely when they host Valleyview.  GI's Pick: Westsyde by 11

Nechako Valley @ College Heights:  Nechako Valley has been nothing short of a juggernaught offensively this season, posting big numbers each time they take the field.  College Heights is playing stingy ball defensively, but this week's opponent will be overwhelming. GI's Pick: Vikings by 18

D.P. Todd @ Duchess Park: The Trojans are going through their first season in years with the growth curve that accompanies such an endeavor.  Duchess has more depth and football IQ at this point.  GI's Pick: Duchess Park by 20

Holy Cross @ G.W. Graham:  This game could very well determine who is going to be first place in the East.  G.W. Graham is getting healthy and that means a real tough game for the Crusaders.  The projected weather for the game means throwing the ball could be difficult at best.  The depth on the roster goes to HC in this one. GI's Pick:  Holy Cross by 7

Saturday, 15 October

Nanaimo @ Frank Hurt: This will be a muddy, run heavy game in throwback field conditions.  The Islanders are built better offensively for the run than are their hosts.  GI's Pick: Islanders by 17

John Barsby @ Seaquam:  The trenches are going to be living up to their name if the weather forcast rings true.  Seaquam wins the team speed match-up and is undefeated headed in to this big divisional game and thus far, have seemed to have figured out the recipe for great second halves week in and week out. GI's Pick: Seaquam by 21

Windsor @ Ballenas:  This game will be a windy, muddy slopfest characterized by some big runs and lots of turnovers in the Whaler mud.  Both teams run down hill very well and have big play athletes. GI's Pick:  Windsor by 6

South Kamloops @ W.L. Seaton:  The Titans are on a bit of a roll right now.  They will find more momentum coming out of this one. GI's Pick: South Kamloops by 11
