The Huddle's Picks of the Week

      By Phil Bowman

      CHARLESTON, S.C. -- No, it's not tennis. But ABC News 4's Dean Stephens' scores the past two weeks are 6-0, 6-0.

      The former sports anchor turned lead man at the station has honed his prognosticating skills to perfection, outdueling and out-predicting The Post and Courier's Phil Bowman.

      Bowman wasn't too far off in the Pick Six Contest last week, going 5-1. His only mistake was picking Bishop England to lose to Woodland.

      Here are this week's picks:

      Stratford at South Florence

      Bowman: Stratford faces difficult road game, but should be a happy ride home. Stratford, 21-17

      Stephens: The Knights are just as tough on the road as they are at home. Stratford, 28-21.

      Fort Dorchester at Beaufort

      Bowman: Fort Dorchester is playing quality football. Patriots, 28-10

      Stephens: Steve LaPrad has the Patriots dialed in. Fort Dorchester, 24-7.

      Bishop England at Ridgeland-Hardeeville

      Bowman: This won't be easy for Bishops. Bishop England, 17-13.

      Stephens: BE took care of business last week, will do the same this week. Bishop England, 31-17.

      Stall at Hanahan

      Bowman: This one will be easy. Hanahan, 35-7.

      Stephens: Hanahan continues to roll. Hawks, 41-10.

      Berkeley at Hilton Head

      Bowman: Stags finish regular season on good note. Berkeley, 21-12.

      Stephens: This one will be close. Berkeley, 21-20.

      Ashley Ridge at Summerville

      Bowman: Summerville closing in on Region 8-AAAA title. Green Wave, 27-14

      Stephens: Coach McKissick just keeps on winning. Summerville, 31-21.
