FOOTBALL: The Poopster's Week 6 picks

The Poopster is starting to hear it from the critics after two straight 5-3 weeks.
After two straight 5-3 weeks, the Poopster is beginning to feel the heat from critics and fans alike. Rumors are flying around that if the orange guy doesn't turn it around soon, his owner is considering handing over the prognostication duties to Spotty the stray cat. Here's his take on Week 6 of the Mercury-area action:

Thursday's games

Perkiomen Valley (4-0, 4-1) at Phoenixville (1-3, 1-4)
The Poopster is a big fan of the Vikings' Orange Crush defense, and believes David Williams, Taiyir Wilson and Co. will be too much to handle on both sides of the ball for the Phantoms, who snapped an eight-game losing streak by downing Pope John Paul II 24-6 last week. ... Perkiomen Valley 49-13.

Pennington School (2-2) at Perkiomen School (3-1)
In a matchup of two teams heading in opposite directions that feature vastly different offensive styles, the Poopster is going to go with the ground-based Panthers (who have won two straight) against the pass-happy Red Raiders (who have lost two in a row). ... Perkiomen School 26-19.

Friday's games

Pottsgrove (3-1, 3-2) at Owen J. Roberts (1-2, 1-4)
Whatever ailed the Falcons two weeks again in their loss to Methacton appears to have been rectified as quickly as the Poopster gobbles up a can of Fancy Feast, which is bad news for the Wildcats. ... Pottsgrove 55-15.

Upper Perkiomen (1-3, 1-4) at Spring-Ford (2-2, 2-3)
The Poopster feels that the Rams will be in ill humor after their second league loss in three weeks, and the hobbled Indians will wind up paying the price. ... Spring-Ford 49-6.

Reading (2-1, 3-2) at Daniel Boone (2-1, 3-2)
It's Homecoming at Brazinsky Stadium, where the Poopster's owner will likely be palling around with old Birdsboro Legion teammates like p.a. announcer Todd Peterson. In what should be a tight, tense battle between two programs eager for a breakout win, the orange guy is going to give the nod to the Blazers, possibly on a late Drew Kresge field goal. ... Daniel Boone 23-20.

Saturday's games

Boyertown (2-2, 2-3) at Pottstown (1-2, 2-3)
The Poopster knows that strange things happen in Saturday games, and isn't ruling out a Trojans victory. But when push comes to shove, he likes Hunter Vogels, Mike Murphy and the Bears to gain the upper hand. ... Boyertown 20-19.

Pope John Paul II (1-3, 1-4) at Methacton (3-1, 3-2)
This is another matchup of squads headed in opposite directions, and the Poopster doesn't see how the Golden Panthers can slow down Conner Derrickson, Dontae Thomas and the Warriors. ... Methacton 50-14.

Last week's record: 5-3 (62.5 percent)
Overall record: 28-14 (66.7 percent)
