LIONS BRING TOP OFFENSE INTO FINAL
Propelled in part by a dominating performance in a 182-76 win Preliminary Final win over the Lakeland Tigers, Kyle Roun and the Florida Lions enter this weekend’s Major League Footy Championship Final with the circuit’s top-scoring offense.
Tallying 694 points over the course of ten regular season games – plus, a lone playoff match – the Lions record-tying performance last Saturday night puts an exclamation point on a campaign-long narrative that saw the Leos battle their way up the ladder with a late-season surge.
Now, about to face off with the ladder-leading St. Petersburg Swans – also the competition’s leader on percentages – Florida will look to maximize the nuances of the friendly confines of the rectangular ground at Largo Sports Complex.
In two seasons as the home of the Major League Footy #footynightinflorida series of Saturday night games, the 120-yard, fast-track turf surface has proven to be a launch pad for scoring, as evidenced by the Lions’ four supergoals in a 106-point over Lakeland in the Preliminary.
While the Swans are likely to counter with capable scorers of their own, the Florida Lions might be emerging as the team of destiny on their run to the flag.
Time – and the scoreboard – will surely tell the tale.
