AUDL Playoffs: Division Finals

This weekend three of the four division finals will be decided.   The West Division was decided last weekend when the Seattle Cascades made the trip to California and swept Los Angeles (31-23) and regular season champion San Francisco (23-17) to advance to the final four in two weeks.

In the East Division, the DC Breeze took advantage of crucial mistakes by the New York Empire in the second quarter to break out of a 6-6 tie to go on a 4-0 run.  The Breeze held off the Empire the rest of the game for a 24-20 victory.  The Breeze now advance to this weekend’s division final against the Toronto Rush.

In the Midwest Division, the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds opened with a 2-0 lead against the Minnesota Wind Chill and withstood a late charge in the final minutes for a 20-18 win.   The Thunderbirds will play at Madison this weekend against the undefeated Radicals (14-0).

In the South Division, the Atlanta Hustle and Raleigh Flyers were forced to postpone their game until Sunday due to storms in North Carolina on Saturday.  After trailing by three in the first quarter, the Flyers built a two-score lead early in the fourth but with a 21-19 lead, the Flyers made several critical errors to allow the Hustle to go on a 6-2 run at the end of the game to upset the defending South Division champions 25-23.    The Hustle will now travel to Dallas to play the Roughnecks.

I love to get paid for writing but I continue to write anyway. It is something I feel driven to do. I may not always get the grammar correct but I hope I can entertain whoever reads it.
