As this will be the last game for Coach Aris Kyriakides, I think the Cajuns will win one for their coach and take home the trophy. NLC will be a force to come with all of their underclassmen and will be the odds on favorite to win in the next two years. Their underclassmen have excellent foot skills but were pushed around by St. Martin's squad.

You can kind of understand the frustration of the STA fans because they were 30 seconds away from going to the finals only to have a PK called and then end up losing in PKs but still no excuse for poor sportsmanship by the STA fans. This should be a fantastic game. Two teams that play two different styles of football. CD loves to be physical and are very good at set peices. Their backline is one of the best in the state led by Teddy Benjamin. They can posses the ball pretty well and love to feed the ball #14 Gary Lawrence who is a superb athlete. Northlake on the other hand is a small but crafty team. They're going to have to match the physicallity of CD if they want to win this one. They have plenty of players with lots of skill and can move and posses the ball well. I should be attending this one and will be a great game, I'm going NLC 2-1
I have personally played both teams this year. Country Day will keep pounding away for their goals. NLC is great at dribbling through traffic. I don't think that NLC back 4 will be able to run with the CD attackers. They are much better physically. I only see NLC scoring off a pk or a set piece. Country Day will dominate the possession battle and pull out a win 2-0.

Saturday afternoon's game is being predicted by the 21 pick 'em "experts" to be won by Northlake by a score (average) of 2-1.
They expect the half-time score to be 1-0 in favor of Northlake. They expect to see 4 cards issued during the game. They anticipate the game-winning goal to be scored in the 47th minute (although it's as early as 13th minute and as late as the 108th).
