Are you a Capers fan, because three upsets seems like wishful thinking?

I will say that MDI has to clean up the amount of penalties they have taken the past two weeks. Their O-line is good enough they don't need to be getting flagged for so many holding penalties. Those will cost them dearly against a teams as good as Oceanside, MCI or Winslow.

The goal of winning North Class C and finishing what they started last season won't be a reality unless they re-focus. MDI's amazing coaching staff will re-focus them. Take that to the bank!!!

No, not a CE Fan but I do like their style of play and think they win the Gold.....

GTown's offense seems to be coming around and they play very good D, not sure where Leavitt is at with their injured players.

MCI seems to be playing well at the right time. Winslow is a good team and extremely tough at home.

Why not OS? Play error free ball and keep moving the chains.....The score board should get a workout in this one!


Should be four excellent games this weekend.....

Gardiner and Leavitt matchup a blast from the past
Tigers, Hornets had strong rivalry going as PTC's best from 2005-12

...“Those games with Leavitt, they were always the hardest-hitting games,” said Oak Hill athletic director Jim Palmer, who coached the Tigers from 2008-10, going 0-5. “You could tell in the stands how much hitting was going on, and you could tell by our guys the day after, when you go through your workouts, how sore they were.”

Now, with both teams in the same class for the first time since 2012, the rivalry is back on.

“It’s good that we’re facing each other again, and in the playoffs,” current Gardiner coach Joe White said. “It’s the perfect atmosphere.”

“It just seemed like every game we played with them, it always seemed to come down to some sort of big play in the fourth quarter,” said Mike Hathaway, who has coached Leavitt since 2002 and is 8-2 against the Tigers. “There were a lot of good players on both teams throughout that time.”

Offensive line key to Winslow football’s success
Veteran group is full of playoff experience, confidence.

...“We’ve been strong up front. Our running game’s been strong,” Winslow head coach Mike Siviski said.

Winslow’s offensive line is comprised of center Andrew Bolduc, guards Chris Jacques and Andrew Beckwith, tackles Cam Winslow and Keenan Janeski, and tight end Hunter Campbell. With the exception of Winslow, a junior, all are seniors. There’s a familiarity at play, and it shows.

“We’ve all played with each other since we were little,” Jacques said. “It happened pretty quick with us.”

Added Beckwith: “We have to have good comm

MCI backfield duo looks to lead Huskies to upset

...Which is something the Huskies aren’t used to as the defending Class D champs made the move up to Class C this season.

"Yea it's humbling and it's definitely different because we’ve never really had to be in someone’s home for playoffs we’ve always had our own atmosphere you know what I mean our own home crowd," Bertrand said.

Bertrand, the 'earth' and 'fire' of the Huskies run game has bulldozed his way to another tremendous season, but it has been the addition of the final element that has culminated in a dominant backfield.

"Yea no Pedro’s a great athlete and he just learned football three years ago," head coach Tom Bertrand said.

"He adds an element of speed that you know I don’t have," Adam Bertrand said.

I know I shouldn't be shocked, but this MDI team keeps surprising me. I thought last night's game would be more competitive and it cettainly was early when Oceanside led 14-8 after the first period. But it was all MDI after that. Scoring 43 unanswered points. MDI just kept hitting Oceanside in the mouth, pounding the rock down their throats. MDI's rushing attack is quite simply the best in Class C, North or South. They can grind it out chewing away the clock, or they can hit the home run ball too.

I think I also learned last night, that if Colby Lee had been in games later during the season, he might have been the leading rusher in North Class C. He had 225 yards rushing last night compared to 65 for Mike Norton Jr. Norton is a fantastic and explosive back, but MDI's defense basically eliminated him as a threat from the 2nd quarter on.
