Mike Says: This is the game we predicted in the pre-season. The key to this game will be the Tatum offense (33 points per game) vs. the Hempstead defense (7 points per game). I picked Tatum to win this game in the pre-season but Hempstead has proven that they should be here. The EAGLES win 28-27!!!

Chris Says: Okay, Mike has already referenced our preseason pick that saw these two matching up, so all that is left to do is pick the darn winner.  Sure, Hempstead has been rolling through the playoffs with much more ease that Tatum, but they also had a much easier lineup of opponents.  Tatum is right where they expected to be at this point in the season and will continue.  The EAGLES win 21-17!!!
