I predict that the Londonderry Lancers will win this game, 35-28.
The Londonderry Lancers are the better team overall. They have the better offense, the better quarterback, and the better running game. However, the Exeter Blue Hawks are a dangerous opponent with a good defense. If the Blue Hawks can force the Lancers into turnovers and slow down their running game, they have a chance to win this game.
The key to the game will be the Lancers’ ability to slow down the Blue Hawks’ running game. The Blue Hawks have a strong running game that is averaging over 200 yards per game. The Lancers will need to get their linebackers and defensive linemen involved in order to stop the Blue Hawks’ running game.
The Lancers also need to avoid costly turnovers. The Blue Hawks have forced 20 turnovers this season. If the Lancers can avoid turnovers, they will have a good chance to win this game.
The Lancers are the favorites to win this game, but the Blue Hawks are a dangerous opponent. If the Blue Hawks can slow down the Lancers’ running game and force them into turnovers, they have a chance to win this game.
