(4-4) O-G at Wapak (7-1)
(8-0) St. Marys at Defiance (4-4)
(6-2) Van Wert at Celina (4-4)
(0-8) Bath at Shawnee (3-5)
(2-6) Elida at Kenton (4-4)

Last week everyone almost had the same picks but there was one upset. Almost no change in the standings as Maltese was the only perfect, drawing a game closer to Stallionaires, with one 3-2 record being the only other person that didn't get 4 out of 5. Two weeks left as the top 4 stays ahead of the big pack. This week's picks might be easier, though...
The consensus went 4-1 with 2 unanimous picks:
Wapak over Defiance 13-0 (win)
Van Wert over Bath 13-0 (win)
Shawnee over Elida 12-1 (win)
St. Marys over Celina 12-1 (win)
Kenton over O-G 11-2 (loss)

Standings:

1.

35-10 Stallionaires


2.

34-11 Maltese Falcon

32-13 hortdog

(4-4) O-G at Wapak (7-1) Titans getting better, but Redskins win this to set up next week's titanic matchup with St. Marys.

(8-0) St. Marys at Defiance (4-4) Roughriders still clicking on all cylinders.

(6-2) Van Wert at Celina (4-4) Cougars quietly having the season that I thought they would have and close to securing a playoff spot.

(0-8) Bath at Shawnee (3-5) Indians starting to believe in Coach Cooper and continue to improve.

(2-6) Elida at Kenton (4-4) Wildcats win a close one at home.

Wapak- Redskins are probably about a 2 TD favorite in this, hope I am wrong and they are caught looking ahead to St. Marys
St. Marys- Next week is for the WBL
Van Wert- Cougars are clicking and seem to be improving every week
Shawnee
Kenton- could be close for awhile, but the bulldogs looked to have packed it in

Wapakoneta over Ottawa-Glandorf - The Titans are no match for the Redskins, who do their part to set up next week's clash with St. Marys...

St. Marys over Defiance - The Roughriders stay unbeaten...

Celina over Van Wert - The Bulldogs upset the Cougars and throw a wrench into Van Wert's playoff hopes...

Shawnee over Bath - Yeah, Bath isn't very good so...

Kenton over Elida - I think the Wildcats are the better team, but who knows which Kenton team will show up...

Playoff outlook:
Region 10:
Defiance (4-4, 10th) Because of a weak region, if Defiance could pull off one upset it could be in but...yeah right.

Region 12:
Wapak (7-1, 2nd) could be in even if it loses both and finishes 7-3. I'm guessing it will host a game with just one win in the final two weeks.
Celina (4-4, 14th) 3 straight losses (to combined records of 19-5) and 2 straight shutouts have the Bulldogs a long shot even with 2 more wins.

Region 14:
St. Marys (8-0, 1st) has clinched a playoff spot and will finish either 1st or 2nd.
Van Wert (6-2, 4th) is getting big help from Bryan, and 2 favored wins over 4-4 teams will probably have the Cougars hosting a playoff game. Probably still in with one loss.
Kenton (4-4, 7th) is still in the playoffs despite losing 3 of the last 4, all in blowout fashion. Kenton should win its final 2 against the worst 2 WBL teams, but will it be enough to sneak in the playoffs? Probably need some help because of several teams hovering around that cut line.

Region 16:
O-G (4-4, 11th) is back from the dead after two wins over .500 teams, but will need a big upset over Wapak and a win over 2-6 Elida to finish somewhere in the bottom 4 of the playoffs.

Wapak over O-G - some may disagree but I felt Wapak was a quiet 1-loss team until the last 2 or 3 weeks. Looking strong.
St. Marys over Defiance - Riders looking to just avoid injuries for next week.
Van Wert over Celina - could be the most competitive game of the week, if not Wapak/O-G.
Shawnee over Bath - First win streak of the year for Shawnee as it looks to upset Celina next week for a .500 record.
Kenton over Elida - the Kenton enigma has gotten bigger, but Elida's defense might be the worst or second worst in the league.

1) Wapak---I'm afraid my "reverse psychology" isn't going to work this week from the looks of it objectively
2) St Marys---Blue dogs would be back in playoff mode, though if they pulled off this huge upset
3) Celina-- Speaking of upsets, here's my "upset special" for this week
4) Shawnee-- Coop, Caprella & Co get it done
5) Kenton--Not raining as hard this week, so Cats pass offense resurrects itself w/better weather
