The predictions I've seen say Servite by 14. Cal Preps has it 26-7 at a neutral site. Edison is the home team so that makes it maybe 26-10?
I think it will be closer. Servite 27 Edison 19.
This defense hasn't stopped. I actually give them credit for slowing down Gorman in the second half of that game, but since then they gave up huge chunks of yards to Poly and La Mirada.
Edison bye could weigh heavily in this one.
Not sure how healthy Servite is, they've obviously played 3 physical games against 3 good football teams which can find a team a little beat up.
Regardless, it will come down to what all good HS FB games come down to, good tackling, special teams and turn-overs.
If Edison is at full strength on OL look for big night on the ground for Gane and Swanigan.
Edison 28-21 in Overtime. Should be a great game.
I would make Edison a small favorite although they haven't played anyone so far. I am happy to see the Friars high on all these polls right now but I will stand by my statement that they are overrated based almost solely on the Poly win. Poly played horrible that night and the Friars played inspired. La Mirada is no good so that win doesn't mean much either. If the Friars easily handle Edison this week, then maybe I will start to believe they are worthy some decent rankings.
I see it like you do, except for the one thing that bothers me here. Maybe the reason that last year's game was so close, was that Servite had two weeks to get ready for Edison. This year, Edison has had two weeks to prepare for Servite.
Is St. Brown going to playing?
A win for Edison elevates them in terms of prestige, they are all ready a big fish in a small pond and this game does not change that and they will most likely beat La Habra in a close one in the divisonal play offs. Is there any other team that will compete with Edison and La Habra in the Southwest Division? HB, FV really?
Servite by two TD's that is my call and I am sticking with it. No change. What will the MD / Edison score be?
I know that is next week ok, I guess we will depend on Santa Monica feeder fish for the Big Fish MD, MD swimming with the little fish this pre season, I would too with Trinity looming. SM and Servite will be tested, MD get's there first tussle with Edison next weak... MD's opponents a combined 1-7 to date. They are good though and that really may work out great as less injury prone schedule.
Going toe to toe with a TD for TD per qtr performance with Compton Centennial and then just a TD in the first Qtr and then in the 3rd for a 14 -0 win over Garfield is not what the Edison faithful were hoping to see so far in their team.
Based on those two Edison performances, and how good Servite has looked in their two performances against Poly and LM the last two weeks, how would anyone pick Servite to be the underdog!?! We are not talking about last year or over the summer or what happen in 200X, but based on THIS season so far.
Edison will have to make a significant improvement in their offense to win this one.
I don't miss him, just his comments. Wanted to get that straightened out first.
