5 things to look for on Friday night

Already it's Week 3 of the football season, which by Kosmo's ingenious math, that'll mean 1/3 of the season will already be over for many teams after this week. There's a lot to keep an eye out on, but here are five things in particular Kosmo is going to watch on Friday night. Can Rochester be that team in the OAA Red that finally breaks through against Clarkston or Lake Orion? — Many teams have tried to contend in the OAA Red over the years, but hardly any have been able to prove they're a championship team by winning at Clarkston or Lake Orion. Rochester, which is 2-0, is the latest to have that chance when it visits Clarkston on Friday. Is Stoney Creek for real? — The Cougars are 2-0 after impressive wins over Royal Oak and Pontiac, but again, it was Royal Oak and Pontiac. The competition will stiffen when Troy visits Cougarville. But if Stoney Creek rises up, it'll really get the attention of Kosmo. Will this be a nail in the coffin for Rochester Adams? - The Highlanders have made the state playoffs 15 years in a row, but are off to an 0-2 start and have to visit a surging Oak Park team. If the Knights win, Adams will have to win out just to see its streak continue, which would be unlikely. Who will win the battle of Birmingham? — Kosmo is really looking forward to a competitive game at Birmingham Seaholm when the 2-0 Maples, fresh off two shutouts, host neighbor Country Day. This has been a rivalry dominated by Country Day over the years, but this years game should be quite a battle. Will South Lyon continue its solid start and move to 3-0? - It could happen. The Lions have a tough game looming at Northville, but they are playing with a lot of confidence and a big road win could be a springboard to a KLAA Central title.
