|The Poopster is looking forward to the Week 3 Mercury-area football action.|
Though the Poopster showed an improved effort in going 5-2 last week, the orange guy still has a lot of work to do, much like several area football squads. Here's his take on Week 3 of the Mercury-area football action:
Spring-Ford (1-0, 1-1) at Perkiomen Valley (1-0, 1-1)
This battle of neighboring rivals features two of the most creative offensive minds in the PAC-10 in Rams head coach Chad Brubaker and his Vikings counterpart Scott Reed. The Poopster feels the boys from Rofo have a few too many weapons for PV. ... Spring-Ford 33-21.
Methacton (0-1, 0-2) at Boyertown (1-0, 1-1)
The Poopster envisions a grind-it-out affair with the Conner Derrickson, Louis Cotteta and the Warriors springing a few big plays against the bigger Bears. .... Methacton 23-14.
Upper Perkiomen (0-1, 0-2) at Pottsgrove (1-0, 1-1)
The Falcons righted the ship in a big way in last week's league-opening 54-0 rout of Pope John Paul II, and the Poopster sees a similar score in store in this one. ... Pottsgrove 56-6.
Owen J. Roberts (0-0, 0-2) at Phoenixville (0-1, 0-2)
Somebody is going to get into the win column at the end of this one, and the Poopster has a feeling it will be the Wildcats behind their power running game. ... Owen J. Roberts 21-13.
Perkiomen School (1-0) at Tower Hill (Del.) Academy (1-0)
The Panthers didn't even get in a quarter and a half of work in their season-opening 28-0 win over Carson Long last week, something the Poopster senses could hurt them. ... Tower Hill 28-18.
Daniel Boone (1-1) at Twin Valley (0-2)
It's a sad state of affairs at the Poopster's owner's alma mater, with the Raiders having lost 23 straight. The Poopster is pretty confident that streak won't end tonight against the Blazers, who looked solid on both sides of the ball in last week's 32-3 win over Owen J. Roberts. ... Daniel Boone 43-13.
Pottstown (0-0, 1-1) at Pope John Paul II (0-1, 0-2)
In a matchup that has the Poopster downright befuddled, he's going to flip the coin and predict the Golden Panthers will snap a nine-game losing streak dating back to last year. ... Pope John Paul II 21-20.
Germantown Academy (0-1-1) at Hill School (0-0)
The Poopster is eager to see how the Rams take to new coach Dave Rackovan's no-huddle attack, but is still going to give a slight edge to the Patriots, who are game-tested. ... Germantown Academy 32-26.
Last week's record: 5-2 (71.4 percent)
Overall record: 11-7 (61.1 percent)
