Football: A look ahead at the local football matchups for Week Six


Skyline (2-3) at Huron (0-5)

The Eagles found out last week that penalties and turnovers don’t equate to success when the Saline Hornets (4-1) are on the other side of the field. Skyline fell behind 17-0 at halftime on Friday and fell 31-6.

The loss was Skyline’s second straight after winning two in a row.

There were some positives for the Eagles, who outgained the Hornets 282-229 in total yards. Senior quarterback Davion Pipkins led the Eagles with 105 yards rushing and 117 yards passing. Senior WR Kenyatta Ewing had five catches for 74 yards.

The Eagles will have to win out to make the playoffs for the first time in school history. After Huron, Skyline plays Bedford, Pioneer and Pinckney.

The River Rats may be winless but it won’t be an easy game for Skyline. The River Rats, who have shown signs of putting it all together, fell last week to Monroe 37-6. The Trojans (4-1) built a 22-0 halftime lead and never looked back.

UP NEXT: Bedford at Skyline (Homecoming)

Saline (4-1) at Pioneer (3-2)

The Hornets improved to 4-1 last week with a win over Skyline while the Pioneers suffered a tough loss at Bedford.

The Pioneers’ three-game winning streak came to an end against the host Kicking Mules, who scored on their first five possessions. Bedford led 14-7 after one quarter and scored 15 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 29-7 lead into halftime.

Pioneer has not defeated Saline since 2012. The Hornets won last year 49-7.

A loss on Friday would leave Pioneer having to win the rest of its games to make the playoffs. The Pioneers play Monroe, Skyline and Ypsilanti to finish the season.

UP NEXT: Pioneer at Monroe

Detroit Universal Academy (0-2) at Father Gabriel Richard (0-5)

The Irish could win this game without even taking a snap. The visiting Eagles have had only two games scheduled this year and had to forfeit both of them.

FGR is coming off a 42-0 loss to a very good U-D Jesuit team last weekend.
