DECIDER: SATURDAY’S MATCH WILL DETERMINE FINALISTS
After eight rounds of winter-season play, the St. Petersburg Swans will battle the Florida Redbacks – with everything on the line for St. Pete.
Following a humbling loss to the Pasco BlackDog last weekend, the Swans (1-1) are at a crossroads.
Win, and they will advance to the February 25 Championship Final vs. the Suncoast Suns, the winter table’s minor premiers at 3-0.
Lose, and it’ll likely be the 2-1 StarfishFC squad battling the Suns next Saturday. The Redbacks can advance to the final, despite the Suns’ unblemished mark – but would need to win by at least 84 points and surpass Suncoast on percentages. That scenario seems unlikely.
In a match that figures to be hard-fought, Florida doesn’t have their sights set on the future – but will bring a veteran side that fully dominated the Swans 91-58 in their only match-up in 2016.
Saturday’s final match of the 2016-’17 Major League Footy Florida Winter League’s regular season rounds will follow the combined club’s weekly footy training at Crescent Lake in St. Petersburg. Training begins at 10 AM.
All trainings, practices and competitions are always free, and are open to co-ed players of all ages and skill level.
The Winter Championship will be played at Crescent Lake at 11 AM, February 25.
