FOOTBALL: The Poopster's Week 8 picks

The Poopster is hoping to surge down the stretch.
It's Week 8 of the Mercury-area football season, and like a lot of squads, the Poopster is hoping to finish with a flourish. Here's his take on the weekend action:

Friday's games
Boyertown (4-2, 4-3) at Perkiomen Valley (6-0, 6-1)
While the Bears enter on a solid three-game win streak, the Poopster isn't about to go against Seth Jonassen, Liam Grande and the Vikings. ... Perkiomen Valley 35-19.

Methacton (4-2, 4-3) at Owen J. Roberts (1-4, 1-6)
The Poopster envisions a lot of big plays from Dontae Thomas, Louis Cotteta and the Warriors against the injury-plagued Wildcats. ... Methacton 43-14.

Pottsgrove (5-1, 5-2) at Phoenixville (1-5, 1-6)
Though the Phantoms gamely hung tough in an OT loss to Boyertown last week, the Poopster finds it hard to believe they can do the same against Mike Fowler, Torin Verdone and the Falcons. ... Pottsgrove 48-13.

Daniel Boone (2-2, 4-3) at Pottsville (0-4, 0-7)
The Blazers haven't been quite up to snuff in their battles against the elite Berks League Section 1, but the Poopster doesn't see Jonathan Charles, A.J. Spagnoletti and Co. having any such issues with the struggling Crimson Tide. ... Daniel Boone 42-12.

Saturday's games
Upper Perkiomen (2-4, 2-5) at Pottstown (1-4, 2-5)
In a battle of teams the Poopster has struggled to figure out, he's going to give a slight nod the defense of Brandon Tinson, Jimmi Zazzi and the Trojans against Mike Felix and the improving Tribe. ... Pottstown 19-13.

Pope John Paul II (1-5, 1-6) at Spring-Ford (4-2, 4-3)
The Poopster senses a rather one-sided affair in the battle of Rofo, with Brandon Leacraft, Brandon Barone and the Rams simply having too much ammunition for the Golden Panthers. ... Spring-Ford 56-7.

Hun School (1-0, 3-1) at Hill School (0-1, 0-4)
Virginia-bound Raiders running back Chris Sharp presents a formidable challenge for Bryce Allen, Tom Sivick and the Rams in what the Poopster believes will be another high-scoring affair. ... Hun School 42-27.

Last week's record: 6-2 (75.0 percent)
Overall record: 41-16 (71.9 percent)
