J.H. Rose and D.H. Conley both saw their road games moved to Wednesday to prepare for the arrival of Tropical Storm Michael, which is expected to become a hurricane and affect the region later this week.

D.H. CONLEY (4-2, 2-0) AT NEW BERN (2-3, 1-0)

D.H. Conley once again walks into a game as the favorite.

The Vikings are beating opponents in all phases of play. The offense, led by 3-A/4-A Eastern Carolina Conference passing yards leader Nick Hamilton and receiving yards and touchdown leader CJ Johnson, has scored 40 or more points in each of their its four contests.

The defense also has been playing well, forcing interceptions in each of the past five games. The interceptions are forced by pressure from a talented and strong defensive line and linebackers group. Expect to once again see the Vikings taking advantage of mistakes made by the Bears.

Johnson has thrived as the punter, pinning returners deep in their half of the field on kicks and punts. The speed of the kickoff group has kept opponents from gaining any ground on special teams.

PREDICTION: DHC advances to 5-2, 3-0 as the Vikings continue to chase South Central for the top spot in the conference, looking to make up ground while the Falcons rest on a scheduled off week.

J.H. ROSE (4-2, 1-1) AT SOUTHERN WAYNE (1-5, 0-2)

Rose is the big favorite in this matchup of teams at opposite ends of the conference standings.

The size and speed of the Rampants’ offense will create ample scoring opportunities similar to those at the beginning of Rose’s season. Wide receivers Jake Henry Rogers and Ben Harris should be able to easily snag 50/50 balls away from Saints’ defenders thanks to the accuracy of the quarterback Grant Charles Jarman.

On defense, the Rampants once again have a clear advantage. Southern Wayne, which has only posted 20 or more points twice this season, will run into a brick wall when facing a tall and fast Rose defense.

PREDICTION: Rose easily walks away with a road win, getting above .500 in the conference with a big match-up with D.H. Conley looming Oct. 19.
