This Friday our BIC Sports Game of the Week features a pair of 6-1 teams fighting for their lives to keep Section 1 championship hopes alive. Muhlenberg (3-1, 6-1) travels to Robesonia to battle Conrad Weiser (3-1, 6-1). The Muhls are fresh off a 20-0 win over Exeter, who handed the Scouts their only loss this season. The Scouts are coming off of a 48-7 win over Twin Valley.
The Muhls come into Robesonia boasting Berks County’s top defense. They have allowed just 67 points through 7 games and are allowing only 180 yards per game to opposing offenses. However, Conrad Weiser features the top offense in Section 1 averaging 366 yards and over 36 points per game.
Muhlenberg will look to stick to the script on offense. The Muhls have the top-rated passer Berks County in Antonieo Dominguez, as well as Section 1 receiving leader Elias Quinter and top rusher Ben Ortiz. The balance on offense will pose a threat to a relatively strong Conrad Weiser defense.
Muhlenberg’s defense will face the daunting task of trying to contain RB Alex Guilbe and QB Aidan Brosious. Guilbe, a junior, has rushed for 885 yards and 8 touchdowns this season, while senior Brosious has rushed for 594 and 11 touchdowns. Brosious has also completed 24 of 41 pass attempts for 460 yards and 3 touchdowns, while throwing 4 interceptions.
Ultimately, this game will come down to whichever defense proves tougher. Expect a low scoring affair.
Prediction: Muhlenberg 17, Conrad Weiser 14
