5-0 expected an unexpected

We're already over halfway through the prep football season, and there currently are five Oakland County teams that are still unbeaten on the season. Of course, two of those aren't a surprise, as Clarkston and Lake Orion are setting the pace in the OAA Red (what else is new?) and will likely decide the league title in Week 8. But the other three are a bit of a surprise to Kosmo. Kosmo thought Oak Park, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep and Auburn Hills Avondale could be be playoff teams at the beginning of the season. But he didn't think all would have a chance to officially clinch a playoff berth going into Week 6, but that's what each can do this week. Oak Park knocked off Farmington last week, following up an overtime win over Southfield the week before. The Knights are no doubt the frontrunner in the OAA White now even though it still has to play Harrison and Oxford. Notre Dame Prep continues to amaze, as not even an unbeaten Lahser squad could shut them down in a 35-14 Notre Dame Prep rout last week. The Fighting Irish have now won 18 straight regular season games. Meanwhile, Avondale was finally tested a bit last week, but managed to hold on for a close win over Berkley. Of all the unbeaten teams this week, Avondale will have the toughest test since it will have to travel to Birmingham Seaholm in a battle between two of the three unbeaten teams within OAA Blue play (Seaholm has one loss to Country Day, Lahser to Notre Dame Prep). We'll see which teams remain unbeaten after this week, but for right now, they definitely are the Fantastic Five.
