Friday Night Live: Week 4 Staff Predictions

ThisWeek Sports Staff
ThisWeek group

Almost everything fell into place for Scott Hennen in Week 3, as he led the ThisWeekSPORTS.com Predictions Panel with a 14-1 run and won his Lone Wolf pick, being the only panelist to have Hilliard Bradley beating Hilliard Davidson.

Hennen has made Lone Wolf picks each week and now is 1-2, as the staff is 1-3 overall. Hennen’s only loss of the week was taking Hartley to beat DeSales. Hennen also jumped from 12th in the standings to a tie for third.

Also posting double-digits wins were Frank DiRenna (12-3), Jarrod Ulrey (12-3), Steve Blackledge (11-4), Andy Resnik (11-4) and Ryan Baker (10-5).

Also of note, newcomer Stephen Borgna went 9-8 to earn his first winning week. He must be feeling good about that because he has two of the staff’s three Lone Wolf picks, being the only one to take Centennial to beat Walnut Ridge and Northland to beat Eastmoor Academy. Ulrey also made a Lone Wolf pick, taking Watterson to beat DeSales.

There was only one unanimous pick, and that is our Game of the Week, with the staff taking Pickerington Central to beat Groveport Madison.

Games splitting the staff were Upper Arlington at Olentangy Orange, Heath at Johnstown-Monroe and Whitehall at Buckeye Valley.

Enjoy Week 4!
