"davey fitz" slips up and gets hunted down!   18/10/2012

The 2012 facetheball Galway Hurling Prediction Competition took an interesting twist last week with leader davey fitz finding the going tough as he only correctly predicted one of the winners from last weekends 5 matches.

That only gave him a week point total of 23 points, which means his opponents had opportunity to make up ground and try reel him in. This brings to mind an event like the Tour de France where one rider has broken away on the half-way mark but the pelleton are slowly reeling him in. But will the finish line appear in time for davey fitz or will the chasing pack catch him???

All other competitors in the top 20 all scored higher than davey fitz, with fabX1 getting 102, clawless scoring 106, while LionelMessy had a great 108 including the draw between Mullagh and Loughrea.  These 3 are a little bit back but in serious striking distance are innocentboy (59 points behind daveyfitz), Helebear22 (60 points behind) and sp0rtrus (67 points behind).

This week sees two matches to predict, with the replay between Mullagh and Loughrea, plus the relegation tie between Clarinbridge and Ardrahan.
Would another draw between Mullagh and Loughrea be out of the question?
Will Ardrahan strike against their neighbours and send them into a perilous relegation position?
Its getting harder to predict, but what do you expect. This is championship knockout and this is also relegation dogfight. This is war!!!

Remember, not only do you have to predict the winning side, but also must try predict as close as possible to the winning margin.
