Columbus 36 v Western 21 FINAL

Recommended Posts

Western has been thrashing their opponents with solid play on both sides of the ball. Offense is lighting it up with six running clocks and outscoring opponents 476-64. A few trash teams but impressive win against Palmetto and a 5-pt loss against a solid University School common opponent which clocked Columbus this year 35-0. Their defense has been lights out except for the STA game, recording 6 shutouts.

My Explorers on the other hand have had a solid season but performed well-below the initial hype in August. New coach, some lack of true leadership on the field, rare kicking woes (against Dillard in particular LOL!) and way too many penalties for an Explorer team. Starting QB hasn't progressed much if at all this year, new sophomore QB getting lots of reps because of it. Losses against BTW and U School are forgivable, but the blow outs in those games weren't.  Defense just quit. They've got the tools offensively, but D is really suspect this year.

I see an exciting, high scoring game, and I'm not counting my Explorers out. That said, I think if Western gets out early, it could get ugly. I seen us fold once that happened twice this season The defense better get ready to play 4 quarters.

Prediction: 41-30, bad guys.

I thought u guys would be the team to beat this year.  That title game last year could have gone either way.

Graduated a lot of pounds on our O-Line last year. Kids played their heart out for Merritt's last season and for a junior who passed away over the summer. They were on a mission. This year, new coach, shaky special teams, and no fire in the belly. Hope to see that this Thursday or the state run is gonna end in Westchester.

Graduation hit Columbus HARD and that's the problem with them. I want the Explorers to win I truly do but Columbus is going home Thursday night.

Western's defense actually played great versus STA. Only gave up 17 points I believe, and that was playing beside an offense that turned the ball over 7 times. 

I don't see anybody scoring 30 points on their defense. This will be a much lower scoring game than 41-30 in my opinion.

Dang.  I know the feeling.  We lost 18 senior starters.  Looked completely inexperienced at times.  We left Receivers wide open etc. It was ridiculous.

Like I said Columbus peaking at right time.  This might get ugly. 

They are dominating this game. They got to the 1 yard line and fumbled on 4th and goal, it could easily be 14-0 right now.
