WHEN: Thursday, 10 a.m.

LOCATION: The Gilbert School, Winsted

RECORDS: Gilbert/NW 6-3; Housatonic/Wamogo 4-5

LAST WEEK: Stafford/East Windsor 22, Gilbert/NW 21

LAST SEASON: Gilbert/NW 37, Housatonic 18

TISCIA'S PICK: Gilbert/NW 20, Housatonic/Wamogo 16

The Yellowjackets are barely alive in the Class M playoff race after last week's heartbreaking loss at Stafford. They must win and will need help if they are to secure their second consecutive playoff berth. The Mountaineers, meanwhile, are reeling, losers of five in a row after starting the year 4-0. This series has a history of upsets and the unexpected, so expect a close one. I believe the Yellowjackets will pull it out, but it will be tough.
