Last week: 5-5. This week's picks:
Friday, 7 p.m.
Woodbury (1-0) at No. 10 West Deptford (1-0). This is a battle of neighbors and likely contenders in South Jersey Group 1 and South Jersey Group 2, respectively. The Eagles' ground game, led by FB Gerald Towns-Owens and RB Josh Cornelius, is tough to stop. Pick: West Deptford, 20-13.
No. 7 Shawnee (1-0) at No. 4 Williamstown (1-0). There will be lots of power points on the line and lots of Top 10 implications in this clash of recent rivals. Williamstown junior Marques Little is a threat as a runner and receiver. Pick: Williamstown, 27-20.
Cherokee (1-0) at No. 8 Triton (1-0). This should be a heavy-hitting clash as both teams played outstanding defense in their openers. Triton senior RB Josh Woods likely will be the top big-play threat on the field. Pick: Triton, 13-10.
Paul VI (1-0) at Clearview (1-0). Paul VI senior Zach Grant, a Temple recruit, can score as a runner, receiver, and returner. Pick: Paul VI, 27-13.
Millville (1-0) at Mainland (1-0). One of these Cape American rivals will emerge from this game as a serious division and playoff contender. Millville sophomore Rob Ennis already is drawing comparisons to graduated star Alquann Jones. Pick: Millville, 22-20.
Gloucester (1-0) at Schalick (1-0). The Lions are dark-horse South Jersey Group 1 contenders with a top one-two punch at running back in junior Ben Boyer and senior Larry Spann. Pick: Gloucester, 27-21.
Cinnaminson (1-0) at Northern Burlington (0-1). These teams played a 56-55 game last season. This one will match Cinnaminson's ground game led by running back Tom Donnelly against NBC's passing attack led by quarterback Colin Fitzpatrick and wide receiver Andrew Cargill, who had 243 receiving yards in a loss to Princeton. Pick: Cinnaminson, 28-27.
Paulsboro (1-0) at Sterling (1-0). A week after beating Haddonfield, the Red Raiders take on another solid Colonial Liberty team. Pick: Paulsboro, 17-8.
No. 9 Holy Spirit (0-1) at No. 1 St. Joseph (1-0). This is a Cape American clash of fierce Non-Public rivals. St. Joseph's run defense will be challenged by Holy Spirit's triple option offense featuring junior running back Talib Gerald. Pick: St. Joseph, 21-14.
Saturday, 1 p.m.
Audubon (1-0) at Haddon Heights (1-0). The Green Wave's hopes for an upset could ride on junior running back Kahlail Chisolm. Pick: Haddon Heights, 18-13.
