With the Season on the line, a gritty battle from beginning to end had spectators overwhelmed with excitement as Burger Shack takes on Pd’s. It was a tough first half as both teams stopped at nothing to try and put points on the board. Great coverage can be seen from Cueme Parker of PDs on defense and some solid rush from the Burger Shack squad added some serious pressure to PD’s game; however, neither team would allow the other to make it to the endzone. Second half found both teams still battling hard for points with wonders as to which team would score first. Fabio gall would be the game changer as he manages to conduct an excellent run play which had Burger Shack desperately trying to stop his momentum. Gall with his swift feet evade tackles from Burger shacks defense as he zips and zags his way straight into the endzone for the touchdown. A big play in the air had Burger Shack’s veteran player Perry Levy gunning for a touchdown, but he was stopped just short of the endzone. In the end PDs would secure their spot at the next round of the semi-finals to face the mighty Popeyes in hopes to earn a spot in the finals. Final score PD’s (14) Burger Shack (6).
