Revisiting Week Five's HS Football Predictions
News

Fayetteville, GA -- Massey Matchups correctly picked the winner of 15 out of 17 games in Week Four. Did the computer predictor tool have similar results in Week Five?

In the Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Game of the Week, Starr's Mill was expected to tie Whitewater 20-20. The computer regarded Starr's Mill as the better team, but gave Whitewater the benefit of home field advantage. Starr's Mill actually won the game 21-14.

Buford was supposed to make up for their 2009 loss to Lovett with a 26-19 win this year. The Wolves got their revenge, but the computer underestimated Buford. Coach Jess Simpson's team beat Lovett 37-14.

Massey Matchups also predicted Kell to beat Hiram in a battle of undefeated Region 5-4A North teams. But instead of beating Hiram 23-14 like the computer predicted, the Longhorns beat Hiram 30-7. That win gives Kell five straight wins over teams that would otherwise be undefeated.

South Gwinnett has regularly scored over 40 points this season and they almost got to that mark again versus Parkview. Massey Matchups thought South Gwinnett would top the Panthers 30-23, but the Comets actually beat Parkview 37-16.

South Gwinnett moves to 4-1 while the Panthers drop to 1-3 for the first time since 1998.

After Week Four's games, Massey Matchups was 28-9. After this past week, the computer predictor tool's overall record stands at 47-12 after a 19-3 week.
