Seven Lakes Man Wins Weekly Football Contest
Not a lot of people had faith in San Francisco last week.
Well, there were two contestants that did and were rewarded with 15-1 records. Then there were two more contestants that didn’t think the 49ers would win, but ended up with 15-1 records since that was the only game they missed.
David Hale of Seven Lakes and Tony Paz of Pinehurst thought that Detroit would win. The Lions didn’t, but it didn’t really matter much to Hale and Paz as that was the only game they missed on the way to their 15-1 marks. Now, Tom Rock of Southern Pines and Bill Norris of Aberdeen picked San Francisco to win, but got tripped up by taking Illinois over Ohio State on their way to going 15-1 for the week.
Yep, that means the tiebreaker once again was used to decide the three-top finishers this week. The tiebreaker game was Chicago versus Minnesota. Da Bears won going away, posting a 39-10 win over the Vikes, resulting in a total of 49 points.
The winner is Hale, who had 48 points for his tiebreaker number, so he gets the $50 first-place check. Grabbing the second-place money ($30) was Norris, who had 46 as his tiebreaker number. And the third-place check for $20 went to Paz, who had 53 points.
Just missing out was Rock, who had 44 for his tiebreaker number.
As for me, I stayed right there in the middling zone, going 12-4 last week, putting me at 64-32 for the season. Last week’s overall leader among the contestants remained the same, with Seth Morris of Aberdeen going 13-3 for the week on the way to a 72-24 overall mark. For a list of people doing better than me, see below.
