A Look Back at Week 3's Prep Football Predictions

FLOWERY BRANCH, GA -- Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Game of the Week was predicted to be a close one by Massey Matchups. Flowery Branch was supposed to get a 25-23 win over Apalachee.

Massey Matchups correctly predicted a Falcon win, but underestimated how many points would be scored in the game. The Flowery Branch-Apalachee game was an offensive battle that far exceeded the 48 predicted points of total offense. The final score for the Region 8-4A match-up was Flowery Branch 52, Apalachee 35.

Flowery Branch also won by a bigger margin than expected. Massey Matchups gave the Falcons a two-point edge. Flowery Branch actually won by 17.

Peachtree Ridge and Newnan were expected to play to an 18-18 tie, but the Lions proved that prediction wrong. Peachtree Ridge won their road game 27-17.

Massey Matchups was right about several games this week, but the computer was not even close on three games in particular.

Collins Hill was expected to beat M.L. King 41-0. Not only did M.L. King not get shutout, but they actually beat the Collins Hill Eagles by a score of 43-36.

North Hall was expected to play St. Pius close. Massey Matchups expected the two schools to play somewhere in the ballpark of a 24-24 tie. St. Pius actually won 49-8.

GAC only got a one-point edge over Holy Innocents' in the prediction. But GAC won by a much bigger margin than the 24-23 win they were expected to get. The Spartans won 49-10.

All in all, Massey Matchups went 13-7 in last week's predictions. Last week, its record was 9-7.
