Football: A look ahead at the football matchups for Week Five


 Here is a look ahead at Week Five for the local high school football teams. All games are at 7 p.m. unless noted.

 Pioneer at Bedford, Friday

The Pioneers look to keep rolling after an impressive win last week over crosstown rival Huron. Sophomore QB Conor Easthope threw five TDs as the Pioneers have found their groove on offense. The defense also has been rock steady so far this season.

Pioneer scored a 48-6 win over the River Rats to improve to 3-1 on the season. Some tough games are coming up for the Pioneers, including next week against Saline and Monroe the following week before a city-rivalry matchup with Skyline.

The Kicking Mules are coming off a 31-26 loss to Saline. Bedford dropped its first two games of the season before knocking off Pinckney 40-20 in week three.

UP NEXT: Pioneer vs. Saline
Skyline at Saline, Friday

The Eagles bounced back from a season-opening loss at The Big House with two solid victories to improve to 2-1 on the season. But Skyline couldn’t slow down Monroe last week in a 39-7 loss to the Trojans.

The Eagles will have to play better on defense against the mighty Hornets to have a shot at the win column. Saline has won three straight after dropping the opener 31-26 to Mount Clemens Chippewa Valley. Saline has scored 86 points in its last three games.

UP NEXT: Vs. Skyline at Huron

Huron at Monroe, Friday

The River Rats continue to search for their first win of the season. Huron has plenty of talent on both sides of the ball but just can’t seem to put a complete game together. They could easily have a couple games in the win column had they made one or two more plays.

Despite the 48-6 loss last week at Pioneer, the River Rats played a much better second half. They need to figure out how to put two halves together.

Monroe improved to 3-1 after an impressive 39-7 at Skyline.

UP NEXT: Skyline at Huron

Father Gabriel Richard at University of Detroit Jesuit, Friday

The Irish hit the road looking for their first win after a few close calls, including last week’s 14-7 loss at Clio. It’s back to the Catholic AA schedule for FGR.

The Cubs (2-2) are coming off a 42-7 non-league loss to Catholic Central.

UP NEXT: The Irish return home next week to face Detroit Universal Academy
