We are in August (well…not right now but the next games are) which means it’s the beginning of the home stretch. This is a great time for a team to get hot, and don’t look now, but a former champion is heating up. Sky Fighters vs. Anklebiters is your GOTW.
Rich: I don’t often predict OT games…I’m not afraid to say when a team is gonna get blown out. But if attendance is equal, I’m going with Sky Fighters 3-2 in OT.
Derek: Biters take it 3-2.
Eli: Are you insinuating that every game that does not go to overtime is a blowout, Richie? If so, then the Anklebiters blow out the Sky Fighters, 2-1.
WTP at Demons
I just have a weird feeling about this game. I’m going with WTP 3-2 over the Demons. Somewhere, Larry, Gina, Romeo and #YesMichelle are shedding a tear over their victory. OK…Michelle is probably crying that she’s retired and still being mentioned but whatever.
Derek: If Michelle’s retired, where has she been going every Sunday? Demons take it.
Eli: The Demons have been dominant this summer, and I see no reason that stops this week.
Filthy at Mega
Derek: Don’t look now, but Filthy’s James Pereira leads the league in goals. He builds on this lead on Sunday, but still finds time to solve Hilbert’s sixteenth problem, survive all 21 days on Naked and Afraid, and bake 400 brownies for the P.S. 54 bake sale. Filthy will also win.
Eli: Filthy wins, 4-1, but everyone is saddened as Schuie’s goal-streak ends at one game.
Fresh Kills at Lbs.
This game should get more love, but I want to watch the Mets game. I’m going with FK 3-1 here. The Lbs. will wait til October to turn it on.
Derek: Fresh Kills with a solid 4-1 victory.
Eli: It’s okay, Richie. These teams play each other again next week. Fresh Kills triumphs over a depleted LBS, Inc. squad, 5-2.
Butchers at Math:
Derek: I won’t be there on Sunday, so Math has no chance anyway. 5-0 Butchers.
