Friday Night Live: Staff Predictions

Editor's note: Amanda-Clearcreek at Hamilton Township has been removed from the Week 5 predictions. The game was canceled.

In Week 4, the top seven in the overall standings for the ThisWeekSPORTS.com Predictions Panel were the only ones to reach double figures in victories. The bottom six didn’t reach that threshold.

Scott Hennen and Andy Resnik both went 11-4 to lead the panel. Frank DiRenna maintained the overall lead at 47-15, three games ahead of Steve Blackledge. 

As for our Lone Wolf picks, Jarrod Ulrey correctly picked Watterson to beat DeSales in his first solo pick of the season. Stephen Borgna went 0-2, and the staff is a combined 2-5 in these picks. This week, John Hulkenberg went out on the proverbial limb twice, being the only one to pick Central Crossing to beat Reynoldsburg and Thomas Worthington to top Hilliard Darby.

Enjoy Week 5!
