A little cold and a lot of wind didn't stop the 2014 Fall playoff tournament from taking place as planed this Sunday, and as always it proved to be a day full of excitement. During the early set of games the AL's Red Mills upset the two-seed Carlem Clippers by a score of 15 to 10 before seeing their championship hopes slashed at the hands of Healy's during a 27-3 route later in the morning. On the other side of the park the Knights improbably knocked off the 12 and 2 Burke Heat during the 10:15 game before also seeing their playoff dreams come to an end after a loss to the championship bound Hangover. At 8 and 7 during the regular season, the NL's Hangover was the David to the near undefeated Healy's Goliath, and proved to be no match for the AL's top team, losing the final game of the season by a score of 35 to 7. Both teams kept spirits high throughout though and brought an awesome season to a close in perfect fashion.
A big thank you to all of the players, capitans and sponsors who helped make this season a good one. Special thanks to Rob Webb who came through in the clutch a number of times to help us get these fields ready in time for games the next day. And of course a huge thank you to Rick Wetzel who has run this league year after year and given us something truly wonderful to look forward to every Sunday morning throughout the falls. It's been a real pleasure, Rick, and we hope you've gotten as much enjoyment out of running this league as we all have having been apart of it.
Thanks again and enjoy the off season everyone!!
