Perfection is starting to become a theme for me in my weekly prep pigskin picks.

For the the second straight week, and the third time this season, I went undefeated in prognosticating high school football games.

I believe this is the first time in my brief history of picking games that I have achieved greatness in three weeks.

I should stop now.

Last week’s 7-0 record moves my season total to 45-10, which puts me just a hair above my season goal of an .800 winning percentage.

With one week left in the regular season, the pressure is on to stay above .800.

Barrow (4-2) at Nikiski (5-2) — Barrow was shut out last week, while Nikiski posted a shutout. Both teams will post the same results this week ... BULLDOGS 48, WHALERS 0.

Eielson (7-0) at Lathrop (2-5) — Eielson will become the first team from the small-school classification to beat a team from the large-school classification this season ... RAVENS 35, MALEMUTES 14.

Monroe (4-2) at Seward (1-5) — With Seward’s flooding problems, I’m not sure where this game will be played. Wherever the game is played, the outcome will be the same ... RAMS 42, SEAHAWKS 12.

Ketchikan (0-6) at Sitka (1-4) — Sitka’s postseason hopes were dashed by Thunder Mountain last week. The Wolves’ consolation prize is a season-ending victory ... WOLVES 21, KINGS 14.

Thunder Mountain (5-2) at Argonaut, Calif. — Thunder Mountain’s reward for clinching the Southeast Conference title is a trip to California. I don’t know anything about Argonaut, but I’m going with the boys from the Golden State ... ARGONAUT 52, FALCONS 28.

Houston (2-4) at Homer (4-2) — Remember when Houston was the No. 2 ranked team in the medium-small schools poll? I do. The Hawks started strong, but they will end with a fizzle ... MARINERS 35, HAWKS 14.

Kenai (2-5) at Soldotna (7-1) — Kenai’s two-game winning streak has put the Kardinals back in the playoff picture. Soldotna will end Kenai’s thoughts of a repeat state title and end the Kardinals’ season ... STARS 56, KARDINALS 21.

Kodiak (3-4) at Skyview (1-6) — With a playoff spot on the line, Kodiak will overcome adversity and punch its ticket to the playoffs for the first time since 2009 ... BEARS 21, PANTHERS 20.
