Tri-Valley Week 5 Preview

It looks like we will have some fall football weather finally . Time to get the long sleeve shirt or the hoodie out. There are two really interesting games and two I think will be pretty predictable . But you never know what can happen and that’s why they play the game.

Erie 0-4 travels to  Caney Valley 3-1 all (2-0 Tvl)

This game should be over before halftime.  Caney has to much talent and size for a team Erie’s caliber this season .  Erie is probably hoping to have enough healthy players to finish the contest .  For Caney it will be a good game to work on some things and get the younger Bullpups some playing time .

My prediction is 60-0 win for the Bullpups

3-1 Humboldt  goes on the road to Eureka( 0-2 Tvl) 2-2 all

Both of these squads are coming off tough losses .  The Cubs were defeated for the first time this season.  Eureka has lost two straight league contest after starting the season 2-0. Humboldt’s team defense should be able to handle Cash Parmes and the rest of the Tornado offense .  The Cubs need to start finishing drives and cut down turnovers to get their offense back rolling . I think this is the perfect week for that to happen .  I am not sure if quarterback Hesston Murrow will be back this week or not .

My prediction is Humboldt gets back on track with a 38-7 win .

Game of the week for the Tri-Valley league is Cherryvale 3-1 at Neodesha 2-2 (1-1 Tvl)

I have always seen this as the best rivalry in the league .  These teams play similar styles of football with speed and misdirection on offense and play makers on defense.  Cherryvale has won two in a row against league teams after losing at Humboldt . The Blue Streaks handled Erie last week to get back in the win column.  Both of these teams have good defense and good running backs . I think the difference is the quarterback play leans towards the Cherryvale with Cade Addis behind center.  He is one of the best players I have seen in the league this season. If Neodesha can get the Chargers to turn the ball over like they have this year they might pull the upset .

My prediction is Cherryvale 27 Neodesha 14

Fredonia (1-1 Tvl, 2-2 all) at Leon Bluestem (2-2)

Leon Bluestem comes off a solid week 4 victory over Eureka and hopes to continue with another home victory this week .  Fredonia was over matched against the Chargers last week 48-13.  This should be a close Tri-Valley league game .  The Yellow Jackets can score with the passing game lead by quarterback Delvin Hendrix and wide out Joe Reyes.  Bluestem will try to to keep Fredonia off balance with a mix of passing and rushing . Moran the quarterback for the Lions has 598 passing yards this season to go along with 6 touchdowns and 235 rushing yards.

I am predicting an upset with Bluestem winning a high scoring game 44-30.

Get to a Tri-Valley league game this week folks . There is some good football being played!!!
