ST. PETE CLINCHES TOP OF WINTER TABLE
By virtue of a three-goal win Saturday at sun-soaked Crescent Lake Common, the St. Petersburg Swans have clinched as 2017-’18 Major League Footy Winter Minor Premiers, running out 66-48 winners over Pittsburgh.
After a slow start saw the sides struggle to convert opportunities, the offenses came alive in the second frame, despite the hot conditions.
The result eliminates the Orlando Kangas from contention to overtake to the top of the ladder.
Now at the top of the table with a 4-1 record and a 139.6 percentage, St. Petersburg will finish the 2017-18 Major League Footy winter campaign with next Saturday’s match, looking to repeat with a Premiership flag after last season’s 3-1 mark and subsequent victory over the Suncoast Suns in the Winter Championship.
The St. Petersburg Swans host the Orlando Kangas, Saturday, March 24 at Crescent Lake Common in St. Petersburg. Ball up is 11 AM.
