After two weeks of struggling, the ThisWeekSPORTS.com Predictions Panel came back with the first week in which everyone posted double-digit victories. Dave Purpura led the staff with a 14-1 mark with Frank DiRenna and Patrick Dolan each going 13-2. Seven panelists went 12-3, including Eric Frantz and Neil Thompson, who both were coming off back-to-back sub-.500 weeks. Jeff Stevenson went 11-4 but his lead was trimmed to three games. In fact, the top five are separated by four games.

Scott Hennen posted the staff’s second win on a Lone Wolf pick, in which one staffer goes against the other 14. Hennen was the only one to correctly pick Olentangy Berlin to beat Hilliard Darby. Ryan Baker and John Hulkenberg lost Lone Wolf picks to bring the staff record in such games to 2-11. This week there is one Lone Wolf pick as Stevenson is taking Upper Arlington to knock off Hilliard Davidson.

Enjoy Week 7!
