Last minute football semifinal predictions

Just two more weeks of football left. Less than that actually. But there are still five county teams alive and playing for a spot in next weekend's finals. The cream really has risen to the top. We'll see just who finds a way to play for a championship at Ford Field.
Scott Burnstein and Keith Dunlap made their predictions on our MIPrepZone Football Picks Show earlier this week. Kosmo made his choices earlier today. And now it's my turn. Last week, I was 6-2, and am 29-6 for the playoffs.
Here are my picks for this week's five Oakland County games:

Division 1
Rockford (10-2) vs. Detroit Catholic Central (8-4) - CATHOLIC CENTRAL 24, ROCKFORD 14 (Preview)
Detroit Cass Tech (10-2) vs. Lake Orion (11-1) - CASS TECH 20, LAKE ORION 14 (Preview)

Division 2 
Birmingham Brother Rice (10-2) vs. Wyandotte-Roosevelt (11-1) - BROTHER RICE 41, ROOSEVELT 10 (Preview)

Division 3
Orchard Lake St. Mary's (10-2) vs. Battle Creek Harper Creek (10-2) - ST. MARY'S 31, HARPER CREEK 13 (Preview)

Division 4 
Detroit Country Day (10-2) vs. Saginaw Swan Valley (10-2) - COUNTRY DAY 30, SWAN VALLEY 23 (Preview)
