    Dear ‘R’ Mr. White Hat – Head Referee – on behalf of the fans of the upcoming game between Skyview and Union. I would like for you to remember a couple things before you take the field.

    This game will decide the GSHL Championship. To fully understand what that means I would like for you to keep in the back of your mind that the boys on both sides of the ball have worked incredibly hard for this night. Maybe they imagined this particular night in March, or May when they couldn’t do one more rep on the bench & then gutted an extra one out – because they know the guy on the other side of the line is working just as hard.

    Or, maybe they did an extra sprint, or attended a 7:am speed & agility training over the summer when they really just wanted to stay in bed.

    This night will be about THEM – not YOU!

    I’m not saying swallow your whistle, make the correct call. But please keep in mind that YOU – Mr. Referee – head Honcho – are in charge of YOUR crew. Their actions reflect directly back on YOU..

    So, Please – we’re all BEGGING you – let your last words to your crew before you take the field be – ‘Guys, let’s not blow THIS one’

    Now, go out there and don’t suck!

    I don’t think it will be a blowout. I think Skyview has the offensive firepower to score 42, but I don’t think the defense will hold Union that low. If Skyview plays a first half like they did against CR, they may be in trouble. However, consider the fact that Skyview only had 4 drives in the first half if I’m correct. 2 fumbles, 1 being inside the 10 yard line, and 2 punts ended those 4 drives. Kieran had a couple overthrown targets that could have been big gains. If Skyview wins the turnover battle, I think this is a guaranteed win. Last year, Union turned the ball over a couple of times in the first quarter when Skyview jumped out to a 17-0 lead. I know there was the pick-6 by the defensive end, and I think there was a special teams turnover that gave Skyview the ball inside the 30 which turned into a field goal. Minus those turnovers, Union outplayed Skyview most of the game. This year Skyview is the better team on paper, but they just can’t make the mental mistakes or turn the ball over.

    No matter what, I’m still super excited for this game. It’s going to be a packed house. This game may not start until 8:15-8:20 range. The clash of the winless is the first half of the doubleheader. Hudson’s bay has scored a grand total of 30 points this season through 8 games. This game should be pretty close. One of these new coaches will get their first win.

    The scouts have concluded that the final score will be 38-27 Skyview. Now the score would of been closer, but the idea that Skyviews band is allowed to take the whole 15 minutes to perform a “Rag time jazz number” along with the extra 3-5 minutes it takes to set up/clean up allows Kizer more time to adjust to Unions plan. Not to mention Skyview is adamant that no drink other than water is allowed on the field, so it is not stained, prevents Union from drinkin red Powerade, their special drink for big games. Now certain uncertainity comes from who the officiating crew will be. Word had been they made all the officials meet and the 5 fastest to pull out the flag and throw it with as little explanation as possible where chosen. One would hope the total penalty count would be under 8, but we all know they will be bigger than the game itself.

    I think union rolls out to a bad start because they have not played a great game all year but it is still a close game because i think the d of the titans will shut down parker henry and if you shut him down you win the game

  7. ChrisH on October 25th, 2011 11:23 am

    Parker is not going to get “shut down”, I doubt he’ll go for 200 yards, but I do think he’ll get 100+. and remember McDonagh has accumulated a decent amount of rushing yards for a QB. Skyview has too many skilled receivers for Union to put too much emphasis on Henry. 1 on 1, nobody on Union’s defense can tackle Henry at the point of contact. He’s just going to keep fighting for 3 or 4 extra yards on every play. I think the final score will be in the range of 38-21. It will be a close game until the 4th quarter when Skyview will add a couple more scores to pull away.

  8. GSHLleatherhead on October 25th, 2011 2:13 pm

    Just A Fan Matt…….by your post I am assuming that you haven’t seen Skyview play this year??? Parker has been gashing defenses because 1) he’s a beast, and 2) other teams are afraid to load the box and let Kieran throw all over em to Henderson, Russell, Miles, Morrison……. (eg. River often had seven guys playing pass coverage) 3) the no huddle lets Skyview take advantage of the other teams defensive set and personnell. If Union decides they are going to commit 7 or even 8 guys to the run Skyview will put up 50 on em in a hurry. Watching tape the Union DB’s are clearly not the strong point of that defense so let the Titans go man to man on the Skyview receivers and the Rock will shred em!!

  9. Storm from EWU on October 25th, 2011 7:52 pm

    Clearly skyview is not unstoppable. I see a repeat of last year, the team that makes mistakes or stalls early will be trying to claw back all night. And 4th q stamina is a big factor.

  10. A guy from Washington on October 25th, 2011 8:52 pm

    Remember this is just an opinion, but I believe that Skyview thinks it will be a shootout. But Union’s defense is going to put up a few good stops stall the Skyview team out and frustrate them, thus causing turnovers, and turnovers and who capitalizes on those turnovers will decide the score.

  11. GrazingHippo on October 25th, 2011 9:37 pm

    Alright, i change my mind. 42 21 skyview

  12. Just A Fan on October 26th, 2011 9:58 am

    Parker Henry had no more then 50 yards last year though and i think if union can get to Kieran early and just hit him and rattle him he will have a hard time throwing. The Union Defensive Backs are very solid with Tanner Nelson and Gabe Rego Back there. If they are not the strong point of the Union D then who is?

  13. Storm from EWU on October 26th, 2011 11:00 am

    Union will def slow Parker more than others have, but I expect he will put up much more than 50 this year. Keep in mind he avg 6ypc last season and is at 10.8ypc this year. It might be tough to rattle kieran, he is even bigger than Parker and hits as hard. I would think that a great effort by the union linebackers and corners might be more critical, try to negate the large gains that skyview gets off the screen and flare passes and force it into a one sided attack on the ground.

  14. GSHLleatherhead on October 26th, 2011 10:16 pm

    Parker is without question Bigger, Stronger, Faster than he was last year. and the 50 yd game last year had a lot to do with Browning and Boatwright–2 studs-now gone!! Oh, and Skyview still WON! Lookin at tape the DB’s for Union may well be good athletes just don’t see enough to say they can stop Skyview’s receivers. They have given up a fair amount of yards without facing any top notch quarterbacks.(Bothell is now starting a freshman QB.) But they will see one Friday. BTW, how many of Unions LB’s and DB’s outweigh Kieran??? Answer ZERO— or for that matter come within 20 lbs of him???? Unlikely they are going to get to him and rattle him. Parker goes for 150 + and Skyview wins as long as the defense comes to play!
