Warner wins 9th BDN Forecast title

BDN staff reports

There were some ups and downs along the way during the 45th Bangor Daily News Football Forecast, but 10 weeks was long enough to determine a champion this time around.

We hope you enjoyed testing your knowledge of Maine and New England high school and college football along with us.

Assistant sports editor Pete Warner made a late-season surge en route to winning his ninth BDN staff title in 2010. Warner went into the final week with a three-game lead over sports editor Joe McLaughlin and picked up one more game after a 16-4 effort.

Warner, whose other titles came in 1984, ’89, ’91, ’94, ’97, ’98, 2007, and ’08, ended the campaign with a 161-39 record (.805). McLaughlin was the runner-up, four games back at 157-43 (.785), while Ryan McLaughlin surged past two co-workers to take third at 155-45 (.775).

Four-time staff champ Ernie Clark, who also won a guest title in 2000, took fourth at 154-46 (.770), followed by John Holyoke (153-47, .765), Andrew Neff (152-48, .760), Dave Barber (150-50, .750), Jim Goodness (143-57, .715) and Larry Mahoney (142-58, .710).

Week 10 guest Prescott Rossi held his own with a 13-7 record.

Dave Utterback of Bangor captured the guest championship. He did so by compiling a 17-3 during the first week of the season back in November.

The rest of the guest roster included: Stu Marckoon of Lamoine (16-4), Mike Portwine of Millinocket, Jack Eisentrager of Hermon, Scott Gordon of Old Town and Bill Kane of Bradford at 15-5, Tiger Stewart of Lake Mary, Fla., and Derek Veilleux of Scarborough (14-6) and Bob Adams of Brewer (11-9).
