Roger Brown's Grid Picks: The choices: Monadnock, Plymouth, Winnacunnet

New Hampshire Union Leader

November 16. 2017 8:30PM

Saturday, at UNH’s Wildcat Stadium

Division III: Campbell vs. Monadnock, 11 a.m.

It’ll come as a surprise if either offense has its way with the other team’s defense, so don’t expect a lot of points in this contest. With the offenses these teams run, barring overtime, this game shouldn’t take long to play. It could come down to a conversion following a touchdown. Pick: Monadnock, 8-6.

Division II: Bow vs. Plymouth, 2:30 p.m.

Bow will undoubtedly play better than it did during a 42-26 loss to Plymouth during the regular season, but will that improved performance be good enough? No team has even thrown a scare into the Bobcats. Pick: Plymouth, 28-14.

Division I: Pinkerton vs. Winnacunnet, 6 p.m.

These teams don’t have much familiarity with each other since they’ve met once since Pinkerton moved up to Division I in 1985. The Warriors haven’t seen a running game like the one the Astros will throw at them Saturday, but Pinkerton may not have faced a defense as good as Winnacunnet’s. Pick: Winnacunnet, 17-14.

Last week: 5-1; 2017 record: 219-37
