WEEK 2 HS FOOTBALL: LOURDES AT PEARL RIVER PREVIEW AND PREDICTION

Warriors Hoping To Go 2-0 With A Milestone For Walsh

WHO: Lourdes (1-0) at Pearl River (0-1)

WHEN: Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

WHERE: Pearl River HS

WHAT TO WATCH ON LOURDES: The Warriors are coming off a 33-0 win over Nyack, and while Sean McDowell and his mates were able to run wild, it was the defense that was most impressive in Game 1. OLL always has a nose for the ball and that’s always going to be a difference-maker.

WHAT TO WATCH ON PEARL RIVER: The Pirates lost by 13 to Sleepy Hollow last week, although it was on the road and Pearl River played hard. The big question this week, though, is whether the Pirates can handle OLL up front and hold off its ground game, forcing the Warriors to pass.

THE SKINNY: Lourdes wants to get to 2-0 before the meat of its schedule comes up. Just as important, a victory will give coach Brian Walsh the 250th victory of his illustrious career. We think the Warriors have too much firepower.

HVSR PREDICTION: Lourdes 27, Pearl River 7
