BIG COUNTRY PREPS GAME OF THE WEEK: Hawley tangles with upstart Dragons (w/ Evan Ren’s Big Country picks)

LAST WEEK: 36-12, .750
SEASON TOTAL: 152-47, .763

I have not been to Bangs for a Game of the Week since 2013 — the last time the Dragons posted more than six wins in a season and the last winning record they had prior to last year’s 6-5 mark.

That drought ends tomorrow, when I travel to BHS for an interesting showdown between the Dragons (3-0) and Class 2A Division I power Hawley (3-1).

Bangs has the better overall numbers, but Hawley has faced a slightly tougher overall schedule, making this pick a perplexing one.

GAME STORY: Top-ranked Brock holds off Iowa Park for thrilling 42-35 victory

IOWA PARK — After outscoring its first two opponents by a combined score of 121-14, the top-ranked Brock football team faced its first test of the season Friday at Iowa Park’s Hawk Stadium.

And though a late fumble in the red zone made things a little tenser than coach Chad Worrell would have probably preferred, the Eagles did what they needed to come away with a 42-35 victory over previously unbeaten IPHS.

Brock never trailed in the game, which saw five touchdowns scored in an 11-play span at one point in the first quarter. But the Eagles were tied on two occasions in the first half and had to make a late stop up by a single score to secure the hard-fought win.

SEASON TOTAL: 116-35, .740

Nonetheless, we’re hitting the road once again this Friday, with the Big Country Preps Game of the Week landing at Chesley Field in Cisco, where the Loboes (2-1) will play host to a Jim Ned club that is two divisions larger than they are.

BCP GAME OF THE WEEK: Pipers return to Hawley in rematch of classic (w/ Evan Ren’s Big Country picks)

LAST WEEK: 34-15, .694
SEASON TOTAL: 34-15, .694

If this were a horse race, Gramps Ren just stumbled out of the gate.

A .694 pick percentage is one of the worst weeks I’ve had in recent memory — brought on by a disastrous 15-9 tally (.625) in the six-man ranks.

That stinks.

Alas, we have yet to reach the first turn, so it’s way early. If I’m not hitting over .800 down the backstretch, I may resort to consulting with a palm reader.

Here’s a look at this week’s Big Country football games.

I’ll see you on the road.
