2013 ULN Staff Game Picks: Week 7

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 Park City @ Olympus, Pleasant Grove @ Timpanogos (girls), Judge @ Alta, Pleasant Grove @ Lone Peak and Logan @ Sky View. Pierce Walker is still in the lead with a 18-6 record followed by Scott Robinson (16-8) and Tim Haslam (15-7).
Boys: Park City @ Olympus – Tuesday, 4/16
Pierce Walker: Olympus wins 11-8
I like the Titans in this match up. I believe that Park City is struggling more offensively against tougher match-ups and will struggle in this one.
Scott Robinson: Olympus wins 13-10
I look for Olympus to come out on top in this interesting D-I match-up.
Tim Haslam: Olympus wins 12-8
Olympus has lost two straight, but this is the game they get their groove back. Park City hasn’t beat a team with a winning record and I don’t see that changing this week.
Girls: Pleasant Grove @ Timpanogos – Wednesday, 4/17
Pierce Walker: Pleasant Grove wins 10-8
Pleasant Grove is on a roll and will continue to dominate offensively.
Scott Robinson: Timpanogos wins 16-13
Timpanogos and Pleasant Grove have both struggled is year. PG is slipping further and further out of contention for a playoff birth. If Timpanogos looses this game, they won’t make the playoffs and I think they know that. I look for Timpanogos to come out and get a close win.
Tim Haslam: Pleasant Grove wins 8-5
The Vikings will overcome the Timberwolves in this key game in the South Conference.
Boys: Judge @ Alta – Wednesday, 4/17
Pierce Walker: Alta wins 13-9
Whereas I do think this will be a great game to watch I can’t find it in me to pick Judge over an Alta team that needs to start getting going before playoffs.
Scott Robinson: Alta wins 12-8
Alta lost a tough one to Brighton and are looking to rebound. Alta has firepower and I believe they will be firing on all cylinders come Wednesday.
Tim Haslam: Judge wins 10-5
Judge is hot coming off a great win over Olympus last week. Alta has lost 2 of their last 3 and squeaked past Bingham.
Boys: Pleasant Grove @ Lone Peak – Thursday, 4/18
Pierce Walker: Lone Peak wins 11-7
Pleasant Grove has great talent on offense but their defense is struggling. Expect Lone Peak to handle this PG squad.
Scott Robinson: Lone Peak wins 14-9
Lone Peak is still undefeated and I don’t think Pleasant Grove has the means to hand them their first loss.
Tim Haslam: Lone Peak wins 12-7
The Lone Peak offense is too potent to be tainted by the Viking defense. The Knights come away with the win in this key cross-conference match-up.
Boys: Logan @ Sky View – Friday, 4/19
Pierce Walker: Sky View wins 10-4
Skyview has far a better record and looks geared for playoffs. I expect this Sky View team to get the W and push hard these last few games.
Scott Robinson: Sky View wins 14-10
This should be an interesting Northern Utah match-up. Sky View is having a solid year and I look for the to come out on top.
Tim Haslam: Sky View wins 10-7
The Bobcat offense will ultimately be too tough for the Grizzlies to handle in this rivalry game.
Let’s hear it fans. What are your predictions for the week?
