The Poopster had an OK start to the picking season, though he couldn't quite pull the trigger on one PAC-10 team (Boyertown) team and got a couple of other road squads wrong (Spring-Ford, Pottstown). Here's his take on the Week 2 area action:


Southern Philadelphia (0-1) at Spring-Ford (0-1)
Spring-Ford coach Chad Brubaker was likely as angry after the Rams were down 28 points right out of the chute in last week's 37-21 loss at Whitehall as the Poopster gets when his owner feeds the outside cats first. He says S-F will right the ship tonight. ... Spring-Ford 38-18.


Daniel Boone (0-1) at Owen J. Roberts (0-1)
The Blazers and Wildcats hunger for a win like the Poopster hungers for a can of Fancy Feast. Boone has lost four straight; OJR has dropped seven in a row ... Owen J. Roberts 23-14.

Hatboro-Horsham (1-0) at Pottstown (0-1)
The Hatters equaled last year's victory total in last week's 21-14 win over Norristown. The Poopster expects some offensive fireworks in this one, and is going to give the nod to Gary Wise, Dayon Mohler and the Trojans to give first-year coach Don Grinstead his first win ... Pottstown 35-28.

Methacton (0-1) at Perkiomen Valley (1-0)
Even the Poopster was impressed with the Vikings' Week 1 effort in all three phases of the game as they hammered P-W 33-0. He thinks the Warriors will be up against it in the Battle for the Battle Ax ... Perkiomen Valley 35-13.

Perkiomen School (0-0) at Carson Long (0-1)
Carson Long has lost 45 straight games dating back to 2008 and the Poopster doesn't see the streak ending against coach Tom Calvario's squad, led by QB turned RB Isaiah Smith ... Perkiomen School 41-7.

Phoenixville (0-1) at Exeter (1-0)
Tough one for the Poopster, especially after the way the Phantoms handled the Eagles 28-20 last year. He senses a tight one either way ... Exeter 17-16.

Upper Perkiomen (0-1) at Boyertown (1-0)
The Poopster has a feeling the Bears will be a handful in the PAC-10 if they can shore up their defense a bit. The offense put up 46 points last week, and he envisions more of the same ... Boyertown 42-6.


Pottsgrove (1-0) at Pope John Paul II (0-1)
The Falcons gave up a TD to Souderton on the opening kickoff last week, then answered with 41 straight points. The Poopster is expecting some ground-and-pound against the Golden Panthers, who showed better balance in their opener ... Pottsgrove 40-14.

Last week's record: 8-3 (73 percent).
Season record: 8-3 (73 percent).
