Here is Tony's preview of the Chargers and Timberwolves.
Northwood (4-5, 5-5) at Hillsdale (6-3, 6-4)
The two private schools in the North Division will conclude the slate
with 2012 installment of the "Pat Riepma Bowl". Riepma was a standout
player at Hillsdale, and in his early coaching career was an assistant
at his alma mater. He then went on to build Northwood into a perennial
GLIAC power and playoff contender. Riepma is still at Northwood as the
AD, and there may not be a finer GLIAC Man out there. We'd love to know
if he really is OK with whomever wins this one, although we'd hardly
fault him either way!
In any case, this year's versions of the Timberwolves and Chargers saw
promising results escape them over the past month. The Woodies finally
halted their five-game losing skid last week after opening 4-0.
Hillsdale, on the other hand, had control of their own destiny in the
North and possibly in the playoff race...but two straight losses have
dashed those hopes. Now, it's about pride for both of these clubs...the
Woodies can get to the good side of .500, and the Chargers don't want
to see one of their all-time greats go out on a three-game skid.
So who gets it done? Well, we have to say we were perplexed at how
ineffective Hillsdale was offensively last week. It's been a long time
since we've seen such a poor output, and it's hard for us to see that
being repeated again...especially back within the confines of Muddy
Waters. While Mark Morris has made large leaps forward in play at QB
for Northwood, we're still not sure if NU can play the kind of game that
has troubled HC's defense of late, and that's power. This should be an
entertaining affair, but it's just so hard for us to see Hillsdale
dropping three straight. Hillsdale 27, Northwood 22.
