FNL MATCHUP PREVIEW
Friday Night Lights Weekly Matchup Preview is brought to you by: Back In The Game Therapy, P.C. "Because it takes more than will to conquer the games of life."
8:00 PM Field 1 - #3 Blue Ballers (3-3) - #6 Beeznutz (3-3)
Scouting Report: A classic matchup of strength on strength, as the Blue Ballers’ #5 ranked offense will see if they can crack Beeznutz’ stout #4 ranked defense. These teams also feature similar styles, with aggressive, turnover-forcing defenses and offenses that rely on the long ball to really get going. The last matchup between these teams was a blowout in favor the the Ballers, so they definitely have the advantage going into this one. Beeznutz’ offense has been a liability at times this season -- they’ll need to avoid costly turnovers to upset the #3 seeded Ballers.
Players to Watch: BB - QB #16 Ace “Rocket” Ismail, WR #24 Sydney “Savage” Harris; BNZ- QB #12 Andy Park, WR #14 Belinda “Fairy Godmother” Hester
8:00 PM Field 1 - #4 Playmakers (3-3) - #5 Marvelous After Dark (3-3)
Scouting Report: The Playmakers already have an impressive achievement under their belt, making the playoffs in their first BMFL season. They haven’t earned anything yet though, as they’ll face off against a veteran squad that has been in more BMFL playoff brackets than they can count in round 1. The Playmakers sport the league’s #3 offense and got the better of this matchup just a couple of weeks ago, shutting down Marvelous’ talented offense en route to a huge victory. Did Marvelous underestimate a new squad last time out? If they did, they certainly won’t make that mistake twice. Expect a barn burner in this one, folks.
Players to Watch: PM - QB #5 Patrick Jaraique, WR #4 Celine Damore; MARV- WR #1 Will “Joystick” Cuellar, PR #8 Adriana “Doctor I” Demartino
9:00 PM Field 1 - #1 Panthers vs Lowest remaining seed
9:00 PM Field 2 - #2 Speed Demons vs Highest remaining seed
