Barring a slew of upsets this week, Ernie Clark should be able to take a knee and wrap up the staff title during the 49th BDN Football Forecast.

Clark went 16-3 last week to extend his advantage over Larry Mahoney (14-5) from five to seven full games with only one weekend of action remaining. John Holyoke’s 16-3 kept him seven games behind.

The Houlton-Ellsworth/Sumner game from last week is set for 5 p.m. Saturday at Husson University in Bangor after being postponed by poor field conditions.

Guest Travis Gass of Bangor, the deputy Universal Desk editor at the BDN, had a solid 14-5 showing.

This week’s guest is Daniel Decker of Dover-Foxcroft.

Decker is studying secondary education at the University of Maine. He is a 2013 graduate of Foxcroft Academy, where he played golf and baseball.

Decker, who lives in Bangor, has served as Foxcroft’s football statistician for the last four seasons, supplying information via his iPad to the BDN and the Eastern Maine Sports Blog.
