2017 Tidewater Predictions Battle
Coach Ed Young
Thursday's PD Matchup (9/14/17):
Matthew Hatfield, VirginiaPreps.com
Gloucester (0-3) at Kecoughtan (2-1) . . . Conventional wisdom says Kecoughtan will take this game. After all, they’ve won two of the three games they’ve played so far, matching their victory total from all of 2016. But it’s also hard to forget the 49-0 drubbing Gloucester gave the Warriors a year ago, ending a nine-game losing streak in the head-to-head series. The passing element could be critical in this one as Gloucester’s Isaiah Spencer, who holds a handful of FBS and FCS offers, threw for over 200 yards on Woodside in the opener. Just last week against the Wolverines, Kecoughtan had just three completions for 36 yards.
Matt Says: Gloucester 23-17
VHSL-Reference.com Says: Kecoughtan 21-20
Coach Young Says: Kecoughtan 21-18
