Week 3 Finals
Wow - what a finish to Week 3! 2 teams that were getting crushed in the first half, turned up the heat in the 4th quarter...
- Portugal entered the 4th quarter trailing by 26 points - a deficit they nearly overcame with a remarkable 24 point binge. Had they won their special teams triples match, Portugal would have made a stunning comeback to remain undefeated 3-0, but Ireland squeezed in a field goal to hold on 44-39.
- Last update, I noted that England needed "a miracle" to pull out their first win over Great Lakes. They came very close with 110 yards and 2 TDs, while holding Great Lakes scoreless in the 4th, but it wasn't enough as Great Lakes held on 50-41 to snag their first victory of the season.
- The Netherlands scored and then locked it down on defense, edging out a close 28-24 win over Puget Sound. This was neck-and-neck the entire game - a great matchup!
- Elsewhere New York City and Germany shut down their respective opponents (San Francisco, Charleston) in the 4th - both teams are now 2-1 on the season.
Week 3 was full of both stunning individual performances and solid team efforts, but these players stood out:
Three teams entered Week 3 undefeated - all left with losses, creating a wide open race in the standings - 7 teams stand at 2-1 entering Week 4.
Week 4, Quarter 1 games headed your way soon!
