LIONS ROAR INTO MLF; DIM SUNS

JUNE 16 - FLORIDA v SUNCOAST

Austen Kugler (#9) battles Ben McIntosh for the tap as Jeff Grubb (#7) and Jordan Calero (#37) prepare to pounce in the Lions Saturday double-header sweep of the Suns.

Queensland gun Ben McIntosh helped fuel the Florida Lions to a double-header sweep of the Suncoast Suns in Saturday’s Week Ten Major League Footy action in St. Petersburg.

With supergoals in each of the two ‘AFLX clock’ matches, McIntosh powered the Lions on both ends of the twin-bill, as the Lions pulled away in the first game, on their way to running out 1.7.3.55 – 2.1.13 winners.

Both sides spent the first half of match one looking for an advantage, as Florida edged to a one goal lead at the break.

The second half was all Lions, as McIntosh and Jordan Calero took over the second frame and steamrolled to a 42-point win, earned by shutting out Suncoast in the stanza.

That narrative continued in Game 2, with the Lions racing out to a 31-point advantage before the Suns stormed back in the second half on the legs of Austen Kugler and Robbie Scallaro.

JUNE 16 - JORDAN CALERO

Jordan Calero helped the Lions dominate the first half of Game Two in Florida’s double-header sweep of the Suncoast Suns.

The Suncoast rally fell just short, however, as time ran out for a Lions 1.5.5.45 – 6.3.39 win.

The result moves Florida (2-0) all the way to third on the Major League Footy 2018 Premiership Season ladder. Suncoast falls to 1-2, dropping to eighth on the ladder.

Major League Footy Eastern Conference play moves to South Florida on Saturday, June 23, as the league-leading St. Petersburg Swans (5-1) travel to face #2 Miami Saints (2-1). The tangle figures to be a belter in a 2 pm ball-up at Croissant Park in Ft. Lauderdale.
