      The Huddle's picks of the week

      CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- This week John Nugent and Phil Bowman make their picks for the week in high school football. Last week, both sports experts went a perfect 6-0 in their picks. This week features a matchup of football giants, Goose Creek and Summerville.Cane Bay at Berkeley:"I like Cane Bay. Both teams have struggled, but I think Cane Bay has more weapons," Bowman said. Nugent says Berkeley has the edge this week, despite early struggles.Goose Creek at Summerville: Bowman says this game will have more fireworks than the Fourth of July. But both men agree that Goose Creek comes out on top once they shore up the special teams game. Stratford at Fort Dorchester:Look for Stratford's Jacob Park to lead the Knights to a victory in this one, even though they struggled last week. Both Nugent and Bowman pick the Knights to win. West Ashley at Ashley Ridge: "The Wildcats are playing defense this year, I'm going with West Ashley," said Bowman. Nugent, however, says he saw some good things out of Ashley Ridge in their loss last week and picks them to take down West Ashley. Bishop England at Porter-Gaud: Bowman says records don't matter in this matchup because Bishop England is the best 0-2 team in the state. He picks them over PG. Nugent says Porter-Gaud has some big playmakers to put points on the board, but a strong defensive showing will put them on top when the clock runs out.
