Pick 6: Split pick on Mead vs. Mt. Spokane

All I can say is I’m in full fledge nosedive mode.

And it seems that KHQ/SWX sports director Sam Adams has decided to join me for the ride.

I suffered a third straight 3-3 week and Adams did it for a second consecutive week. Boy do we need to pull out of the .500 doldrums.

Got any advice?

We’re climbing back on the horse and giving it another try.

Except for the Gonzaga Prep-Ferris game, we didn’t share with each other which teams we were picking last week. We disagreed on four – and G-Prep showed it plans on defending its league championship. We both had Ferris winning in a close game. We got the close game part right.

Last Week: Adams 3-3 (11-7 overall), Lee 3-3 (9-9)

Gonzaga Prep vs. Shadle Park

(Friday, Joe Albi Stadium, 5 p.m.)

Lee: G-Prep 33-21. As much improved as the Highlanders’ defense is, it won’t be able to figure out who has the ball in the Bullpups’ deceptive offense.

Adams: G-Prep 38-28. Any other year this might be a letdown game for G-Prep. Not this year. The Highlanders will get their yards against the Bullpups, but the Bullpups will get more.

Timberlake at Sandpoint

(Friday, 7 p.m.)

Lee: Sandpoint 27-23. Sandpoint is improving and Timberlake has played a challenging schedule. The Bulldogs keep the momentum rolling.

Adams: Sandpoint 21-18. This was the Bulldogs’ only win last year, and it came on the road. Sandpoint will protect home field and make it two wins in a row for its first winning streak this decade.

Pullman at Cheney

(Friday, 7 p.m.)

Lee: Cheney 27-19. I picked against the Blackhawks at home last week and I’ve learned my lesson.

Adams: Cheney 33-28. The Blackhawks are in line for a 4-0 start, but they’ll get a good run for their money from the Greyhounds, who held off Moscow last week in a nail biter.

Freeman at Newport

(Friday, 7 p.m.)

Lee: Freeman 34-18. Have I told you lately that I’m a HUGE Scotties fan? Beam me up Freeman.

Adams: Freeman 35-7. You think I’m jumping off the Scottie bandwagon now? Great Scot, no way. Freeman rolls to its fourth straight win.

Lind-Ritzville/Sprague at Reardan

(Friday, 7 p.m.)

Lee: LRS 28-7. This should be the Broncos’ most difficult league game. The Indians are good, but not good enough to knock off the defending State 2B champs.

Adams: LRS 42-21. The Broncos’ biggest test in league comes Friday, and they will pass with flying colors. How do you defend a 6-foot-8 tight end (Ryan Whitmore)?

Mead vs. Mt. Spokane

(Friday, Albi, 7:30 p.m.)

Lee: Mt. Spokane 24-21. Call this my upset special. The Wildcats will serve up a healthy dose of Stiles and Hyatt.

Adams: Mead 28-24. It’s the Battle of the Bell and this one will be everything as advertised. Two 3-0 teams locking horns in a thriller. My heart tells me Mt. Spokane wins this game. My head tells me Mead.
