ST. PETE’S JONES GANG PREPS FOR FINALS SHOOTOUT
The St. Petersburg Swans (9-1) will be looking to make it hard for the upstart Florida Lions (6-5) to keep up with the Joneses, when the sides meet this Saturday in the Major League Footy 2018-19 Championship Final.
Ball up at Largo Sports Complex in Largo, Florida is 7 PM EDT
With like-named, if unrelated, on-field leaders in American footy veteran Dustin Jones and Sydney native Clint Jones leading the way, St. Petersburg hopes to put an exclamation point on what’s been a successful winter campaign.
The Lions – fresh off a resounding 182-76 thrashing of the # 2 seed Lakeland Tigers in the April 13th Preliminary Final – stand as the Red and White’s last obstacle in a winter season in which the flag has been an expectation for the league-leading Swans.
Florida enters the contest with the highest-scoring offense in the circuit, while St. Pete leads all comers in wins, points and percentages.
As attention turns to an exciting summer MLF Florida Derby as the Swans gear up for their annual summer-long season of matches with cross-state brethren the Miami Saints, the Bloods’ ‘Jones Gang’ first seeks an affirmation in claiming the MLF winter flag.
