The Medina Bees come into Friday projected to finish the season 6-4 at 9th in Region 1. They host the Brunswick Blue Devils, who are currently expected to make the playoffs at 7th in Region 1. Brunswick have the edge on paper, entering the game as a 2-point favorite. However, the battle for a postseason bid can only be decided on the field. A major challenge on the schedule for both teams, this looks to be one of the more competitive games of the week. One of the more familiar matchups of week 10, both teams know what to expect. Brunswick will hope to continue the recent trend, in which they've won 3 of the last 5 matchups. In 2018's matchup, the Bees came away with a 20-7 victory.

Brunswick is 6-3 after their 38-13 win against the Elyria Pioneers last week. This week, they look to build on that victory on the way to what they hope will be a strong finish to the season. The Blue Devils have struggled on offense, scoring only 19.67 points per game over their last 3 games. On the year, they rank 27th in Division 1, scoring an average of 27.9 points per game over the course of the season. Defensively, giving up 19.1 points per game, they rank 27th in the division.

After a 28-25 win against the Shaker Heights Raiders brought their record to 6-3, Medina will be looking to carry that momentum over and earn another victory. In recent weeks, the Bees haven't been quite as explosive on offense but they remain the 25th-ranked offense in Division 1, scoring an average of 29 points per game. On defense, they rank 45th in their division, giving up an average of 24.4 points per game.

Prediction: Brunswick to win (91.07% chance of victory)
