Comments:  | Leave A Comment

The day has come. Each team has competed for 10 weeks and the final attempts for playoffs spots came to a close as we know who will now participate in the post-season. In the ACMFL, the top six teams in each of the age/weight categories make the playoffs.

“This is the most successful year that we have had thus far as a league,” said ACMFL President Jose Regus. “We are excited about the (onset) of this year’s (post-season) as we are expecting to see some huge matchups.”

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE—The undefeated Wilkinsburg Twerps with coaches Omar Doss, Jeffrey Jones, Cliff McCaulley, Milo Gaskin and Tom Harris.

To confirm that notion, this year’s playoffs will feature some of the league’s heavy-hitters. According to league standings, there will not be very many surprise matchups. One should expect that these games will bring re-enforcement to some upsets that occurred earlier in the season. As a result, it will naturally give those teams that were upset the opportunity to get their ultimate revenge on the way to a league championship in just a few short weeks.

STRONG “D”—The Wilkinsburg Baby Twerp defense kept Clairton in check with 15 sacks and 25 tackles. Eddie Hyatt (33) got the game ball for getting 10 sacks and 15 tackles with help from teammates Kwame Wilson, Aaron Ovaltin, Monta Presley, Walter Baker, Trevon Finley, Kyree Mitchell, Amer Allen, Keith Thompson and Darnell Anderson; with defensive coach J.R. Nicholas.

In the final week of the season, there were two sweeps. Lincoln took four games away from Braddock. Congratulations to the Falcons as they’ve had a good year. Best wishes to them in the future.
