For not having seen a lot of 8-man this year, my first-round picks weren’t horrible (27-5). Here’s hoping I do better today:
Creighton over Neligh-Oakdale: The Warriors pulled off a nice first-round upset in beating EPPJ. That’s not happening today.
BDS over Bloomfield: Bloomfield has a nice team, but a tough draw in Bruning-Davenport-Shickley. I think the Bees will put up a fight, but I don’t think they pull off the upset.
Other Games: Burwell over Elm Creek; Hemingford over Blue Hill; Fullerton over Amherst; Friend over Diller-Odell; GACC over Howells-Dodge; Heartland over Clarkson-Leigh
Randolph over Kenesaw: Kenesaw has put up a ton of points, but really hasn’t played an overly strong schedule. The Cardinals have a good shot at pulling off the win on the road.
Other Games: Exeter-Milligan over CWC; Humphrey St. Francis over Giltner; Stuart over Falls City Sacred Heart; Anselmo-Merna over Paxton; Sandhills-Thedford over Elwood; Maxwell over Bertrand; Garden County over Brady
