Litchfield County Staff Football Picks For Week 6
Rain has played havoc with the schedule this week and it spilled over to our picks coming out later than usual.
Torrington has a big game and despite being under .500 (2-3) it can get right back in the NVL Copper Division mix with a win over Woodland on Saturday night.
Wolcott Tech, Lewis Mills and Housatonic-Wamogo are all going for their first wins of the season.
Pat Tiscia is on fire with his picks if late, going 10-0 over the last two weeks. That doesn't bode well for the locals as Pat is riding with the opponents again this week.
Here are the picks and good luck to everyone as football hits the second half of the season.
Pat Tiscia (19-6, 4-1 Lock of the Week)
Woodland (3-1) at Torrington (2-3): Woodland 33, Torrington 22 - Lock of the Week
Nonnewaug (1-4) at Haddam-Killingworth (2-3): HK 44, Nonnewaug 0
Whitney Tech (0-5) at Wolcott Tech (0-5): Whitney Tech 18, Wolcott Tech 16
Hyde Leadership (5-0) at Lewis Mills (0-4): Hyde 55, Lewis Mills 6
Enfield (3-2) at Housatonic/Wamogo (0-4): Enfield 29, Housatonic 15
John Nestor (16-9, 5-0)
Woodland (3-1) at Torrington (2-3)
Which Torrington team will show up, The one that gutted out a win over Holy Cross and then ran roughshod over St. Paul or the bunch that blew a 20-point lead at Wolcott and was a turnover machine in last week's loss to Naugatuck? Torrington can beat anyone on its schedule not named Ansonia, problem is this up-and-down bunch looks like it could lose to just about anyone as well. Woodland 40, Torrington 27
Nonnewaug (1-4) at Haddam-Killingworth (2-3)
HK drubbed Lewis Mills last week and gets a crack at another fledgling program this week in Nonnewaug. The Chiefs will have a hard time on the road in this one. HK 35, Nonnewaug 6
Whitney Tech (0-5) at Wolcott Tech (0-5)
Two teams desperate for a win. Wolcott Tech showed some signs of life last week in a tough game with unbeaten Platt Tech and I'm pulling for a breakthrough for the Wildcats this week. Wolcott Tech 22, Whitney Tech 18.
Hyde Leadership (5-0) at Lewis Mills (0-4)
Hyde is one of the top teams in Class S and will move to 6-0. Hyde 49, Lewis Mills 6 (Lock of the Week)
Enfield (3-2) at Housatonic/Wamogo (0-4)
Enfield keeps Housy winless. Enfield 34, Housatonic 16
