Creekview vs Rome: Grizzlies get their shot to test the Wolves

Scouting the Grizzlies

The Creekview Grizzlies clinched a playoff berth last week and can clinch a share of the region title with a win this week at home. The Grizzlies shook off a slow start last week and scored 28 second half points as they got past Woodstock. For the Grizzlies, it was their best defensive performance of the year, holding their opponent to just a field goal. Creekview’s defense is now allowing 18.1 points per game. Trey Thomas, Kevin Meade, and Griffin Jane all recorded sacks in the victory for Creekview. Quarterback Austin Guest has now thrown for over 1,200 yards and 15-TDs.

Scouting the Wolves

The Rome Wolves come to Canton this week looking to clinch their third consecutive region title. The Wolves recorded their third shutout of the season last week. We mentioned it before and we will say it again, Rome has dominated region opposition over the last two season, allowing a total of 39 points in 10 games. On the season, Rome is allowing just 7.2 points per game. Their offense has been just as impressive, averaging 47.8 points per game on the year. In their four region games, Rome has yet to be held to less than 55 points. Last week, senior signal caller Reece Fountain broke the school record for career passing yards and career TDs, while receiver D.K. Daniel broke the school record for receiving TDs.

Pundit's Pick

Rome has been playing at a high level and looks like they are peaking at the right time. They’ll need to slow down the Grizzlies ground game and force some turnovers. Meanwhile, Creekview will need to match Rome’s physicality and take care of the football. Creekview’s defense might be the best Rome has faced since Carrollton, but we believe Rome still has too much offensive firepower. Wolves by 27.
