In a week where Salem did not play, Alabama lost and the New York Giants improved to 5-1 three losses on our football contest was good enough to win.
Salem’s Dickie Jennings was the only contestant to miss as few as three games so he’s our contest winner for the week. Dickie picked Alabama to beat Tennessee and he also had James Madison winning, as most contestants did the week after they earned a number 25 national ranking. His third loss was in picking the Dolphins to beat Minnesota, but he had all the high schools games right and hit on four of five tough pro games. So, Dickie gets the $50 gift certificate from Mac & Bob’s and the Blizzard from Dairy Queen in Salem.
For last week’s 19th hole I asked you to pick the score of the big game between the Bills and Chiefs. Buffalo prevailed by a score of 24-20 and the closest to that score was a dead even tie between Randal Sowers and TJ Beason Myers. Both picked the Bills to win 27-24 and that was the closest to the actual score as everyone else figured it would be a much higher scoring game, as did I. Or, they picked the Chiefs to win.
We’ll be generous this week and give a free day of golf , with pull cart, at the Salem Municipal Course on Academy Street to both Randal and TJ. It’s beautiful out there right now with the fall leaves turning colors.
For this week’s 19th hole question we’ll see if James Madison can bounce back. The Dukes are hosting Marshall and that should be a good one. Give me your prediction, winner and score, of that game and the closest to the actual score will get a free day of golf on the historic sand greens of Salem.
