Wolfpack come up big in the second half.
In a battle for a spot in the final, both teams were looking to put everything on the field. The first half proved to be a tough one as the ball bounced back and forth as both teams struggled to move downfield.
Spitfire Captain/Coach Brendan McGurk managed to ignite the team with a miraculous 20 yard Pick 6, lighting a fire underneath the Wolfpack. However, unfortunately that seemed to be the first and last time the Spitfire would see the Endzone this season. A Quick TD from Tim Hall saw the game tied at 7-7 leading into the half.
After a few adjustments from both sides the second half was underway and could have gone to either side. However, plagued by a few misjudgements the Spitfire couldn't move the ball down field, leaving it in the hands of a hungry Wolfpack that took advantage of the situation. Connecting for a total of 4 TDs in the second half, the ‘Pack ran away with the game.
Rookie WR Norbert Muller and QB Josh Thompson connected for 3 TD’s and 100 Yards for the ‘Pack, along with Veteran LB Jamaine Limu-Franklin coasting on a 25 Yard Pick 6.
As the Spitfire regather and look forward towards next season and how they can adjust their game, the Wolfpack move onto their 4th AFC Championship game. A hard battle against the ‘Hawks next week will crown a champion for 2019 as the season winds down.
