Every Thursday, members of the SanFranPreps.com staff, as well as a couple other local media members, will make predictions on the weekend’s games featuring our local San Francisco teams. Please feel free to make your own picks in the comment section and discuss the week’s games.

More movement this week, as the top three of Dylan, Mitch and Bonta only got the St. Ignatius-Sacred Heart Cathedral game wrong and had 6-1 records last week.

In the last week of the regular season, we’ll see if there is any more late movement.

Balboa over Burton, Valley Christian over Sacred Heart Cathedral and Mitty over Riordan are the consensus picks this week.

    It’s sad that all of you picked Burton to lose to Balboa. This is especially since most of you picked it to be a blow out game. Do not sleep on the Pumas. They will shock you and, “upset” the bucs!

    I’m shocked none of you picked SHC to win…..you are all officially off the bandwagon..hahahaha

    No wonder Josh Levine had a 4-3 record last week. No disrespect to Marshall but i believe Mission is hungry in going undefeated and taking the Turkey Bowl this year. After a 50-38 win over Balboa, the Bears coaching staff will do something about that defense and show they are in it to win it.

  4. Observer says:

    Yeah, it is shocking no one picked SH. They’ve really proven they can win games in the WCAL.

  5. IC Stars says:

    Come on, Jeremy. Do you really think SI has half a chance against St. Francis? Irish will have a better chance at beating Valley Christian… (at least they won’t be intimidated as they were last week by the worst team in the league).

    • jbalan says:

      Gotta make up some ground and pick some upsets… That being said, I still think SI has a shot…

      Other than the Riordan game, St. Francis hasn’t scored more than 17 points in WCAL play…

    Dont look down on these pumas..they have potential and the talent. IF they lose and i mean IF, it would be a close score.

  7. someone says:

    balboa has had way bigger blowouts than 50-38. that score is nothing compared to ours. don’t get too happy bears.

  8. Manifest Destiny says:

    You guys were all pretty close with the SHC and SI scores this week. I was at the SI game and they did have a shot at it late into the fourth quarter. No passing game at all! I do not think Coach Navarro will last long at St. Francis.
    Everyone is on the Mission Bear train. I watched them against Fort Bragg at Kezar earlier this season. There was about ten people in attendance on the Mission side. Go Bears , there is a lot of great history in that program. I hope they win it all! By the way Fort Bragg is doing very well this season.
    Support AAA football or it might go away in the future! Go to a non play off or non turkey day game and you will see what I am talking about. Keep updated with the AAA. The budget is bad and football unfortunately is not high on the list.

  9. Joshua Levine says:

    In all fairness, I felt that Mission was going to pull some of their starters and that would give Marshall a chance. And it’s not like Mission blew them out… Marshall was in it.
