Rocky Mountain Roundup 2016/17 - Week 8

Colorado Blizzard Clinch Nationals, Freedom FC Poised for Wild Card Bid

 

3/3/17 – Week 8 was a must win for the Bighorns and Freedom if they were to have a chance on getting a wild card bid into the PASL National Championships.

No surprise Golden gave the Edwards a run for their money; but they still could not get over that hump and fall 8-7 to Freedom FC.  Similarly, the Bighorns, started out with heavy punishment to the Blizzard with an early 2-0 lead in the first, but a 4-0 run in the second for the Blizzard proved to be the difference as the Colorado Blizzard take it to the house 7-5.

With the win over the Rocky Mountain Bighorns (5-3), the Colorado Blizzard (7-0) have secured a spot in the PASL National Championships. There will be no games this weekend with Arena FC (2-6) forfeiting to Freedom FC (5-2); who are still in the hunt for a wild card spot.  They host the Colorado Blizzard next Saturday at the WECMRD Fieldhouse in Edwards, CO at 1:00PM.
