Football Picks Contest - Playoffs Week 2

Last week we had just four people enter our MIPrepZone Football Picks contest. Part of that was that I did not announce it until Friday morning.
So this week I'm spreading the word on Thursday. There are nine Oakland County games being played on Friday and Saturday. It's simple, just pick the winner of each of the games below. The two people with the best record will win a MIPrepZone t-shirt. Because there are just nine games, we'll need a tiebreaker. The tiebreaker for the contest will be the total points scored in the Avondale-St. Mary's game. A second tiebreaker will be the total points scored in the Oxford-Brother Rice game.
So please email the winners of all nine games to, and be sure to include the total points scored next to your winner of the Avondale-St. Mary's and Oxford-Brother Rice games. Please put FOOTBALL PICKS CONTEST in the subject line. All entries are due by 6 p.m. Friday (no exceptions). Any incomplete entries may be disqualified. Please include a contact phone number in case you win.
