2014 ULN Staff Picks: Week 4

Although many teams don’t have games this week, there are a few gems. We’ve broken down some of the best match-ups this week. We predict the scores for the Herriman @ Davis (boys), Park City @ Juan Diego (boys), Riverton @ Alta (girls) and Jordan @ Park City (girls) games. A little bit of something for everyone. Bradford Davis retains the lead at 11-2. Paul Walker is in second place at 10-3 and Tim Haslam comes in at 9-4. Friend of the site, Jeff Brzoska, who has been playing along via the comments, stands at 11-2 as well. Don’t forget to leave your predictions in the comments below.

Boys: Herriman @ Davis (4/3)
Bradford Davis – Herriman wins 9-6
Both of these teams are great. Be sure to watch for Davis attackman Kyle Gee against Herriman defender Nicholas Williams. On the flip side, watch Davis’ Parker Hardy defend Herrimans’ Chantz Roberts. Should be great match-ups. I think the returning class for Herriman will be too much for Davis.
Paul Walker – Herriman wins 12-9
Davis has only two losses in the season and out of those losses has only lost by a point each game, including one in overtime. Herriman has the same 4-2 record as Davis. Davis Does not allow their points many points, while Herriman is a high-scoring team. It will be close throughout, but Herriman will take the win in the end.
Tim Haslam – Davis wins 10-9
The Darts will finally find themselves on the opposite end of a close game and come away with a win.
Boys: Park City @ Juan Diego (4/3)
Bradford Davis – Park City wins 12-11
Look for a fun game to watch where possession and ground balls will prove the winner. I think having Jackson Burton on the faceoff x for Park City will play a big factor in this game.
Paul Walker – Juan Diego wins 9-7
Both teams are playing well right now. Both have two losses and Juan Diego is ranked #1 and Park City ranked #2 in the latest coaches poll. It will be a close game as well. With Juan Diego’s experience they will take the lead.
Tim Haslam – Juan Diego wins 12-6
The Soaring Eagle will come out from a double overtime loss to Waterford with vengeance and roll the Miners.
Girls: Riverton @ Alta (4/4)
Bradford Davis – Riverton wins 9-5
Riverton is packing heat this year, especially with their defense. Alta will have a tough time scoring, which will prove the deciding point. I think that old adage “The best offense is a good defense” will work well for Riverton.
Paul Walker – Riverton wins 9-5
Riverton is still undefeated. The key to their streak is defense. They have held their opponent to an average of just 3 points. Alta is also playing well, and they are good at scoring a lot of points. But, they will be held to their lowest scoring game.
Tim Haslam – Riverton wins 9-5
I think it’s clear that this game will go in favor of the Silverwolves. So what if we all picked the same score!
Girls: Jordan @ Park City (4/4)
Bradford Davis – Park City wins 8-7
I am excited for this game. Both teams are bringing it this year. With Sasha McKee between the pipes for the Beetdiggers, Park City will have a frustrating time scoring. But with the firepower PC is bringing, I think I’ve got to give them the edge.
Paul Walker – Park City wins 11-7
Park City is the top team in the state right now. They are undefeated and know how to get the ball into the back of the net. Jordan is also playing well this year, but will still come up short against Park City.
Tim Haslam – Park City wins 14-8
Like I said in the ULN Show, I don’t think any will knock off Park City this season.
