Carthage is a prohibitive favorite in this one. After all, among the teams the Leopards lost to this year were Henderson, which proceeded to lose their next 8 games, and Spring Hill (sorry, PantherNation2015).

However, L-E apparently was plagued by injuries most of the season. And they seem to have played their best football of the season in their past 3 games - 2 wins and a loss to undefeated Pleasant Grove in which they were driving for a tying touchdown with only 5 minutes left in the game.

L-E always seems to have some good athletes. I’m sure that is true again this year, even though they have apparently lost some who transferred to Pleasant Grove. 

CHS needs to play at a high level. It’s now single elimination and turnovers and penalties must be minimized in order to prevent an unwanted result.

As I’m confident Coach Surratt and staff will have the Bulldogs ready to play, I pick them to advance with a 35-point win this Thursday.
