2016 Pickem Challenge - Week 2
Pickem Recap - Week 2
Speer still in the lead!
Spring has sprung and the upsets have begun! Week 2 of the Indy GAA Pub League was even harder to predict than the opening matches last week with only an average of 2.95/6 correct picks from the entries received. Unfortunately, no one was able to correctly pick all six matches, but Hugh Kelly, Adam Speer, and Paul Earwood were all able to get 5 out of 6. Adam Speer remains two clear of Jason Mulvey and Hugh Kelly, and three ahead of the Swami. With that, let’s take a look at the matches from this week…

At 10am, Smoking Iron hoped to maintain their Week 1 momentum over a Bent Rail squad hungry for their first win. Despite receiving 71% of the picks, Smoking Iron only led by a single point at halftime, but they finished strong to win 5-14 to 3-17 over Bent Rail. In the other morning match, 9 Irish Brothers faced a determined Daredevil team who entered with a staggering 92% of the picks. With a flurry of late goals, 9 Irish upset the Devils to win 7-10 to 7-8.

At 11am, Connor’s Pub looked to continue their Pub League win streak over a tenacious Hotel Tango/Wilks & Wilson crew. Entering with 79% of the picks, Connor’s Pub cruised to a late victory 4-19 to 2-13. In the second 11am match, the highly favored Langton’s Irish Pub, faced off with a Renner-Nixon team eyeing a second straight upset. After an intense second half comeback, Renner’s narrowly outlasted Langton’s 4-12 to 4-11 to stay unbeaten in 2016.

 At noon, HealthSolutions of Carmel played against Triton Brewing Co., each trying to rebound from tough Week 1 losses. With 67% of the picks, HealthSolutions swam around the Mermen, winning 2-19 to 2-11. And in our Sunday Doubleheader, Smoking Iron and 9 Irish Brothers both entered the match hoping to win their second of the day. It was a true toss-up as both teams received 50% of the picks, but Smoking Iron was able to prevail after a late goal, winning 2-11 to 1-11.

Can Smoking Iron maintain their run of form? How long will the Connor’s win streak go? Can Renner’s stay unbeaten? Can Leicester City win the title?? All this and more this Sunday at Eugene Burns! With 48 points still available this year, it’s still anyone’s game!

Here is the schedule for next week’s matches, make sure to get your picks into indygaapickem@hotmail.com by 9am on Sunday. Good luck!
