Semi-Final Playoff Results: In Between 36 / Wang Chung’s 19; Bacchus 52 / Hula’s 12
Another hot and humid Saturday greeted the players and fans of the HIGFFL. First up, the In Between Dolls and Balls met up with Wang Chung's Happy Endings. Just last week, Wang Chung's shocked the red army with a resounding victory to claim their second happy ending of the season. Would they be the sleeper team that surged in the playoffs and shot to the top of the championship podium? Right off the bat, it was apparent that some key absences were hard felt - the regimented Balls and Dolls edged to an early lead and never looked back. The game was hard fought and competitive and, until the last five minutes, the happy ending was not securely in the Balls and Dolls hands 36-19.
In the second game, our Honey Badgers welcomed back some players that were missing last week. A quarterback swap surprised the Fifty Shades of Gay and, unlike last week's 3 picks in the first 3 plays, Bacchus was on the board within the first minute. By halftime, we were up 22-12. Hula's wouldn't score again. Aaron excelled at quarterback with 5 touchdown throws and Grant, Brandon, Andrew all had interceptions that were converted to touchdowns. Some key scrappy play by Elliott and some first down runs by Jim helped the Honey Badgers dominate the game.
We are going to the Championship Game to face the In Between Balls and Dolls next Saturday, July 25th at 12:30pm.
