EAFL ROUND 5 - EVENT PAGE
Frank Bocek Park - Baltimore, MD
11am EDT - Men's: #15 Baltimore Dockers v #13 Philadelphia Hawks
Noon EDT - Men's: #15 Baltimore Dockers v DC Eagles
1pm EDT - Men's: DC Eagles v #13 Philadelphia Hawks
2pm EDT - Women's: Baltimore/DC Eagles v Philadelphia Lady Hawks
The EAFL Men's premiership is safely ensconced in New York, but there is plenty at stake at the Train Yard in terms of Nationals seedings prospects. Baltimore (9-2) has shown no sign of their long season as they gear up for a run in D3. They welcome in their rivals from both sides of I-95; the DC Eagles (4-8) and Philly Hawks (3-5) are both coming off of losses in their last outings.
The women's match features a talented Lady Hawks outfit tangle with a combined Baltimore and DC side that was well represented at last weekend's Freedom Camp in Wisconsin.
PEACH STATE SHOWDOWN #3 - EVENT PAGE
Ridge Ferry Park - Rome, GA
2pm EDT - Rome Redbacks v Atlanta Kookaburras
Having won the first two games of the four-match series between the two sides, the Kookas (5-3) can lock up the season set up in Rome against the Redbacks (0-2), who are still improving in quality and quantity.
SoCAL CUP ROUND 2 - EVENT PAGE
Dusty Rhodes Park - San Diego, CA
10am PDT - #9 San Diego Lions v #10 Orange County Giants
11am PDT - #10 Orange County Giants v #5 Los Angeles Dragons
Noon PDT - #9 San Diego Lions v #5 Los Angeles Dragons
The sandwich leg of the SoCal Cup sees the homestanding Lions (9-2) trying to lock up at least a share of the SoCal Cup title with another sweep of LA (3-5) and Orange County (6-5). The Dragons swept both the Giants and Sacramento back on August 10th and are coming off a loss in Denver last week.
GOLDEN GATE V SACRAMENTO
Ygnacio Valley Park - CONCORD, CA
Men's - #2 Golden Gate Roos v Sacramento Suns
Women's -- GGAFL Grand Final
With their metro GGAFL season done and dusted, the Roos (4-0) can concentrate on running out the season and preparing for a go at the National Championship. Sacramento (1-8) will have their hands full, but they will want to put a dent into their NorCal derby rivals.
