2013 ULN Staff Game Picks: Week 8

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 features Sky View @ Mountain Crest, Olympus @ Skyline girls in the Skyline football stadium, Alta @ Park City and Utah taking on BYU. Pierce Walker is still in the lead with a 21-8 record but Scott Robinson, coming off a 4-1 week is quickly gaining momentum at 20-9. Tim Haslam sits at 17-10.
Boys: Sky View @ Mountain Crest – Wednesday, 4/24
Pierce Walker: Sky View wins 12-8
I see Sky View continuing their success and winning this match-up. It should be a good battle.
Scott Robinson: Sky View wins 14-12
Sky View has played well so far but Mountain Crest has been impressive. I think home field advantage helps the Mustangs take home the W.
Tim Haslam: Sky View wins 15-8
The Bobcats will continue to roll in their quest for a D-II Championship, rolling over the defending Champs.
Girls: Olympus @ Skyline – Thursday, 4/25
Pierce Walker: Skyline wins 11-7
This should be a great gauge-game for playoffs as to where the North teams really stand. Great game predicted.
Scott Robinson: Skyline wins 12-10
Olympus has a strong team and are well coached, but Skyline has too much talent. I look for Skyline to come out on top in a close one.
Tim Haslam: Skyline wins 15-11
This will be one for the books. The teams are evenly matched but I see Skyline winning on their football field in front of the home fans in the stadium.
Boys: Alta @ Park City – Friday, 4/26
Pierce Walker: Alta wins 15-6
Alta needs to get back on tract and they know it. There should be no loose play by the Hawks and they should run over PC.
Scott Robinson: Alta wins 13-9
Alta and Park City have both played tough schedules. Both are battle tested but I think the Hawks show up ready to play and beat PC.
Tim Haslam: Park City wins 8-6
I see this one being very close in a great contest. I think the game will come down to the fourth quarter where Park City will get the edge and win. In reality, I need to make up points fast and I see this game as an opportunity to just that.
MCLA: Utah @ BYU – Saturday, 4/27
Pierce Walker: BYU wins 16-8
BYU should win this match-up easily. Unfortunately the Utes still need 2 more years to really grow into their new coaches.
Scott Robinson: BYU wins 15-10
Both these two teams played Westminster close. I think Utah has a strong team this year but I think BYU get the victory in this one.
Tim Haslam: BYU wins 14-7
The Cougars always play well against Utah and this year will be no different.
Let’s hear it fans. What are your predictions for the week?

  1. Can’t wait to watch Skyline girls take on Olympus in Skyline’s stadium! It will be an exciting game and the Skyline fans will be out in force.

  2. It’s going to be awesome to see lacrosse back in the stadium. It’s about time. Best of luck to the Skyline girls.
