Each week of the high school season we will pick the winners a handful of random games that week. You can join along as well by leaving a comment with your picks. This week we look at the Judge @ Lone Peak boys game, Riverton @ Jordan girls game, West @ Highland boys game, Copper Hills @ Jordan boys game and the Utah v. Utah State MCLA game. Pierce Walker is still in the lead with a 15-4 record while Scott Robinson and Tim Haslam are tied at 12-7.
Boys: Judge @ Lone Peak – Tuesday, 4/9
Pierce Walker: Judge wins 12-8
I see Judge handing Lone Peak their first lost of the season. I do think Lone Peak is a solid team but I think they’ve had a softer schedule than Judge who has benefited from the experience of playing Juan Diego.
Scott Robinson: Lone Peak wins 13-10
Lone Peak is having a solid year so far. They have a test this week against Judge but I believe they will pull this one out.
Tim Haslam: Lone Peak 8-7
I think the Judge defense will struggle against the potent Lone Peak attack and the Knights will come out on top.
Girls: Riverton @ Jordan – Tuesday 4/9
Pierce Walker: Riverton wins 12-11
This game is a huge matchup and will have drastic implications for playoffs. My heart is with Jordan but I think Riverton will sneak away with the W.
Scott Robinson: Riverton wins 10-8
I like this Riverton team. Having watched them play a talented Alta team fairly close, I look for the Silverwolves to beat Jordan.
Tim Haslam: Jordan wins 9-8
I think Jordan uses the home field advantage to come away with a key win.
Boys: West @ Highland – Wednesday, 4/10
Pierce Walker: West wins 8-4
I believe West will find the win in this one with their ability to score. Highland sure needs to fix their defensive struggles if they are going to pull this game off.
Scott Robinson: West wins 9-7
West is looking to stay alive in the playoff hunt and will get a key 9-7 victory over Highland.
Tim Haslam: Highland wins 6-4
I think the Rams will be able to beat West in a key D-II match-up.
Boys: Copper Hills @ Jordan – Thursday, 4/11
Pierce Walker: Jordan wins 9-5
Jordan will take this game with their solid defense. I have seen them play and can honestly say that Jordan is packing one of the Top 3 defenses in the state.
Scott Robinson: Jordan wins 14-9
Jordan has some talent on their team. Look for Jordan to come out swinging and take down Copper Hills.
Tim Haslam: Copper Hills wins 9-6
I think this is the break out game for the Grizzlies who have been struggling all season.
MCLA: Utah @ Utah State – Friday, 4/12
Pierce Walker: Utah wins 14-11
I like the Utes in this matchup. After coming off of an overtime victory I believe their momentum will carry them to another victory over the Aggies.
Scott Robinson: Utah wins 17-3
Utah travels to USU on Friday. Utah is the superior team and shows it in a commanding victory.
Tim Haslam: Utah wins 16-6
Utah, despite suffering several injuries, will be looking to prove they are the better team in this in-state rivalry game.
Let’s hear it fans. What are your predictions for the week?
