AAA Game of the Week Preview: Nor'Easter at Colonials

Lowell Nor'Easter (2-2) @ Metro West Colonial (1-3)

 

Week Five

Nor'Easter

Colonial

Players To Watch

Chris Degree   leads the division in receiving touchdowns and is the big play guy Lowell needs this week.

Quarterback Nick Ferrera's ability to make key throws and big plays in the fourth quarter could lead the Colonials to a huge home victory.

Game Keys

The Nor'Easter  will look to establish their running game and look to connect with Degree downfield for large gains.

The Colonials aggressive defensive line will look to control Lowell's running game and keep constant pressure on quarterback Clarzell Pearl.

The Skinny

Both teams realize that a win this weekend could assist them with making a push into the playoffs this year.  

A preseason loss to the Militia and the week one defeat to the Sabers gave some the idea that Lowell was in a stage of rebuilding. Winning their last two games has shown the league that the Nor'Easter is a dangerous team heading into midseason.

 

The Colonials record (1-3) is a result of inconsistent offense and a tough early schedule. Their 18-14 loss to then undefeated Boston shows the clear potential this team has. A win this weekend could set the team in the direction it needs.

 

Expect a defensive battle between two teams with the playoffs clear in their sight. The fourth quarter may be when this game will clearly be decided.
