Summary:
The Thunderbirds will make this game close. Line play has been excellent in the first three games. Going against the Red Dragons line, which is their strength, particularly getting Jon Scroxyon back. If Simpson doesn't play, Germaine will need to carry the Red Dragons with his arms and legs. The Coaches know each other as Don Greco was the Red Dragons' Offensive Coach when Maple Grove won the State Titles and Sectional Championships. This game should be "Smash Mouth Football" at its best. The game could be a tossup. 
Prediction:
Maple Grove - 20, Chautauqua Lake - 13
The Red Dragons opponents this season are 2-7, while the Thunderbirds are 2-7.
