FOOTBALL: RSN Top 10 – Week #4

It’s the Top 10 for Week #4, but we’re changing things up – this week has a theme. Click the play button on the video to the right and enjoy the tunes while you read

#1

LAPORTE SLICERS
3-0

Last Week: #1

The Slicers survive, proving there is no curse of the #1. Of course, that’s a week by week proposition and with an angry Trojan squad that just got licked by Michigan City coming to Kiwanis Field, the RSN #1 will be tested again. Gotta love the Duneland.

#2

MICHIGAN CIY WOLVES
3-0

Last Week: #6

Here comes City. The expectations were for improvement, but this much this fast is more than anyone could have imagined. The D-A-C is dog-eat-dog, so if the Wolves want to keep howling, they’ll need to bring it each week. This Friday Valpo comes to Ames Field so forget about last week, it’s this week that matters. Like we said, dog-eat-dog.

#3

WHITING OILERS
3-0

Last Week: #4

The Oilers keep chuggin’ on down the tracks after a Saturday night prime time win over GSSC rival Boone Grove. Speaking of rivalries, Wheeler comes to the Oil City for a Week #4 matchup. The Bearcats were the only team to defeat Whiting in the regular season last year, so revenge has to be on the mind of Gang Green.

#4

CHESTERTON TROJANS
(2-1)

Last Week: #2

The Trojans got tested on Friday night. It was a test they failed. Now they go from hosting Michigan City to playing in the Maple City, as #1 LaPorte awaits. Nobody wants to start conference play 0-2, so expect Mark Peterson’s team to be ready.

#5

VALPARAISO VIKINGS
(1-2)

Last Week: #5

Oh so close. If this were only horseshoes or hand grenades, but it’s not, it’s football, where close doesn’t cut it. Up next is a trip to Ames Field. Last week it was #1 LaPorte. This week it’s #2 Michigan City. Did we mention the Duneland was dog-eat-dog?

#6 

logo-Merrillville-Pirates
MERRILLVILLE PIRATES
(2-1)

Last Week: #7

The jury is still out on the Pirate team. With their come-from-behind win on Friday, they’re now 2-1 on the young season. We can’t put our finger on it, but something just doesn’t seem to be clicking with Merrillville. Next on the schedule for Brad Seiss and his plundering Pirates are the Portage Indians. Like the song says – dog, dog, dog-eat-dog.

#7 

logo-Portage-Indians
PORTAGE INDIANS
(2-1)

Last Week: #8

The Indians’ new leader is Darren Rodriguez and his impact is being felt already. It ain’t easy climbing the Duneland ladder though, as you need to bring your best every week. This Friday the red Indians host the purple Pirates, in what should be a good one at the Warpath.

#8 

logo-Lake-Central-Indians
LAKE CENTRAL INDIANS
(1-2)

Last Week: #3

The Indians didn’t expect to be sitting at 1-2 three games in, but after dropping two close ones in a row, here they are. To get back to .500 they’ll need to win at Crown Point this Friday, no easy task against an improved Bulldog bunch. The Duneland – nuff said.

#9  

logo-Lowell-Red-Devils
LOWELL RED DEVILS
(1-2)

Last Week: #10

The Devils got a much needed W on Friday night. Now they get Griffith for the last time – maybe ever. Those are hard words to write, but Griffith has made it clear the Devils need to find a new week four opponent next season. Let’s hope both teams give us a game to remember; one last knockdown, drag out, smash mouth, in-your-face instant Region football classic – like so many before.

#10  

logo-Crown-Point-Bulldogs
CROWN POINT BULLDOGS
(1-2)

Last Week: #10

The Dogs have dropped two straight after opening with a big win over Lowell. But they’ve been close in both losses – real close, so they stay in for now. This week they’ll host Lake Central, who’s also dropped two in a row. Win and stay in, but lose and they’ll likely go bye-bye. That’s life in the Duneland. Dog-eat-dog.
