After some technical difficulties, we are able to post on our website once again! Last night was a dominant performance by Guilford to push my record to 10-3 and still undefeated in basketball. Unfortunately, tonight is a hockey game, and I am an atrocious 1-4 in the games on the ice. That needs to change pronto.
Tonight's battle is a matchup between two hungry teams, the Grizzlies and the Spartans. In all of my time, I don't know if I've ever seen a 1-6 Spartans team. The man they call Scooter is a tremendous coach for Amity and, as a result, the Spartans have been a solid squad for a while now. This year is different. Something is missing from this Amity team. They are not just losing games; they are getting dominated on the ice being outscored 32-10 by their opponents.
Guilford on the other hand has really struggled since their 2-0 start to the season. They have only mustarded up 1 win in their last 6 games. Despite the struggles, they have kept the games close with 3 of their 5 losses being a one-goal game. Guilford schedule has been fairly tough and doesn't get any easier, so this is an important get-right game for the Grizzlies as they have a number of difficult opponents coming up on the schedule.
Ok, pick time. In a good matchup, I like the team that stays in the game to be able to claw for a win. (Claw... hint hint). That's right, give me the Grizzlies in a road win over Amity at the Bennett. What can I say.... back-to-back Guilford feels right to me.
