Ann Arbor High School football predictions for Week 6

ANN ARBOR – Games are getting bigger and bigger for high school soccer teams in the Ann Arbor area, and Week 6 is no different.

MLive sports reporter Greg Wickliffe has made his pick which teams in the region he believes will win on Friday and move closer to the playoff spots.

Last week, Wickliffe correctly selected the winner in eight out of nine games and this year successfully predicted 34 of 44 games. Check out his week 6 predictions below.

FRIDAY, OCT. 1

Salines Gavin Mesman (5) and CJ Carr (13) cheer on the sidelines during Saline’s game against Hudsonville at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor on Friday, August 27, 2021.Jacob Hamilton | The Ann Arbor News

Ann Arbor Pioneer (0-5) at Saline (5-0)

Saline shouldn’t have a problem getting past the Pioneers who have had a losing streak of 12 games from 2019. The Hornets have too many guns, and Pioneer just doesn’t have the playmakers to stay in this one.

Forecast: Saline 56, Pioneer 6

Dexter at Ypsilanti Lincoln High School Football

Ann Arbor Skyline (1-4) at Ypsilanti Lincoln (1-4)

Lincoln’s record can be misleading as it has faced the toughest schedule yet against Saline, Temperance Bedford, Dexter and Monroe.

The Railsplitters are better than their record suggests, and that should be reflected in Friday’s matchup against Skyline.

Forecast: Lincoln 32, Skyline 20

Chelsea vs. Adrian High School Football

Chelsea’s game against Adrian at Chelsea High School on Friday, September 24, 2021

Chelsea (5-0) at Ypsilanti (0-5)

Ypsilanti are well on their way to dropping the most points in program history this season and playing number 1 in Division 4 won’t help. The Bulldogs are one of the most complete teams in the state, regardless of division, and should be rolling to a 6-0 start.

Prediction: Chelsea 49, Ypsilanti 6

Dexter at Ypsilanti Lincoln High School Football

Dexter’s Nate Baughman, 6, rings the gong after receiving an interception during Ypsilanti Lincoln’s game against Dexter at Lincoln High School on Friday, September 17, 2021.Jacob Hamilton | The Ann Arbor News

Dexter (4-1) at Ann Arbor Huron (4-1)

By far the biggest game of the week, it should be a Doozy. It’s hard to predict as both roster have tons of talented athletes and two of the best offensives in the state. A slight edge can be given to Dexter due to his ability to limit errors as Huron has struggled in that area at times this season. Regardless of the outcome, however, this should be a game to remember.

Prediction: Dexter 35, Huron 34

Milan vs St. Mary Catholic High School Football

Milan coaches congratulate their players on the field during a soccer game at Milan High School in Milan on Friday September 17, 2021.Alyte Katilius | MLive.com

Milan (4-1) at Riverview (5-0)

This is another must-have game from the Ann Arbor area. Riverview have been the best team in the Huron League for the last two seasons, but Milan have a chance to return to the top of the league with a road win.

Riverview haven’t allowed more than nine points in their last four games and together with the home game this will be a tough hill for the Big Reds.

Forecast: Riverview 20, Milan 16

Whitmore Lake vs. Father Gabriel Richard football match

Whitmore Lake (4-1) on Sterling Heights Parkway Christian (1-4)

The Trojans are on a mission to have one of their best seasons ever and their running game will be too much for Parkway Christian to quit on Friday.

Forecast: Whitmore Lake 28, Parkway Christian 14

Whitmore Lake vs. Father Gabriel Richard football match

Wyoming Kelloggsville (1-4) at Ann Arbor’s father Gabriel Richard (2-3)

The FGR turned their season around with consecutive wins after a tough 3-0 start into the season. Look for the Fighting Irish to keep that momentum going against Kelloggsville at home.

Forecast: FGR 21, Kelloggsville 14
