Bob Ryan Blog – CLASS 6 DISTRICT 1


There will be two very interesting first round games in this district (which is basically the Suburban West Conference). Of course, #4 Lindbergh vs #5 Parkway South is a game that each team brings in identical records of 4-5. Lindbergh smothered the Patriots in week 1 of the season 32-7. The Pats have been trounced in each of the last 2 weeks by the District Leaders (Eureka & Lafayette). However, playing high level competition often raises the level of a team’s performance. Meanwhile, Lindbergh, who  was also whipped by the District Leaders brings in a 2-game winning streak. The other game to keep your eyes on is at Oakville. The Oakville(6-3)-Mehlville(3-6) game should be a dandy. Oakville was actually trailing the Panthers mid-way in the 4th quarter of their 1st encounter before pulling away for a 35-23. Oakville is coming off of a big win at SLUH where the Tigers shut out the Jr Bills in the 2nd half. Meanwhile Mehlville has dropped 3 straight tight games but has risen the level of its offense during that time. Clearly it appears that this District Championship will be a repeat of a week 1 contest between two Rockwood schools- Lafayette & Eureka.
