AAA’s Final Four

In its’ 25th year, the New England Football League’s post-season is well underway. The Colonial Conference has boiled down to their top 4 programs. “This group has been playing at a high level all season” said a League Representative Bernie Armstrong, “it makes sense that they are the last ones standing”.

GAME 1: Southern Maine Raging Bulls (7-3) @ Rhode Island Wardogs (8-2)

During their week three matchup, the Wardogs used their vaunted passing attack to defeat the Raging Bulls 32-13. Jeff Costa’s 270 yards passing were too much for Southern Maine to handle.
An MVP probable, Costa threw for an unmatched 39 touchdown passes this season and looks to add to it against the Bulls secondary. “He’s been dominating the last few season; this year however he’s been even better”. Costa spreads the ball around however, nobody has been able to slow down the Wardogs receiving duo of Marqueem Monroe (13 touchdown receptions) and Damon Belin (10 touchdown receptions).

Expect to see adjustment made by Coach Ronnie Bates against Rhode Island this weekend however. Most notable using defender Anthony Hicks and Elijah McNaughton to match up against their passing attack. Bates will also play a little keep away as he will most likely give running back Tevon Colon his fair share of carries. Colon led the league with 14 scoring runs.

Game 2: Middleboro (MA) Cobras (7-3) @ Boston Bandits (8-2)

Two of the oldest minor league programs in the country match up for what should be an amazing battle. During the regular season, a Boston field goal was the only score in their 3-0 victory in week 9.

Boston’s Giovanni Sanders has had a career season collecting 11 passing touchdowns to go along with 7 scores on the ground. “Sanders can hurt you in so many ways; you have to contain him if you want to slow Boston down”.
The Cobras had a fast start to the season outscoring their first 3 opponents 76-21 which included two shutouts. Injuries and inconstant play did trip up Middleboro the latter part of the year. “We have to get back to Middleboro football; we live for this time of the season”.

Four top teams, two great games, one goal. Should be a great weekend.
