High school football predictions: How’d our guys do?

For the second week in a row, Mike Lefkow and I tied in our weekly prep football pick ‘em competition, with each of us going 7-2 for the weekend.

We both took Bellarmine in a close game. Mitty won in a rout.

I predicted the Palma-Salinas game would be tight, and it was, but chose the wrong winner.

Salinas won 38-35.

Lefkow thought Menlo-Atherton would get back on track and pull the upset at Folsom. It wasn’t even close. Folsom won 49-0.
