With the halfway mark of the season quickly approaching, this appears to be a pivotal week that boasts some key matchups.
SSG v. WCK
In this matchup we have 2 teams that have struggled mightily to this point of the season. Noteworthy is the fact that slightly over a week before this matchup these 2 teams swapped players in a controversial move that many managers viewed as one sided. Will the players traded play a key role in the outcome of this matchup? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
DDH v. TYS
Division 1 leader DDH takes on a division rival that has promised to be the team to beat within the Division and throughout the league. So far though, the Yardies have appeared to be all bark and no bite while Darkhorse has managed to post a very respectable 3-1 record through it's first 4 games of the season. This game would be otherwise unimportant except for the facts that its an inter-division match that can have playoff implications later on the season.
BKF v. BBS
In another inter-division matchup, division 4 rivals BKF and BBS square off for the first time this season. These 2 teams appear to headed in different directions, but that could all change if BKF can get healthy enough to compete and win this matchup. If BBS manages to hold of BKF then the Bears would have put some necessary distance between them which may go a long way towards a playoff spot.
WBD v. NYH
This matchup could turn out to exactly what the Dr. ordered for the winner. The Hitmen are looking to put together a win streak and start a run that could culminate in a playoff birth and possibly a division title. The Bulldogs need to avoid a 2 game loosing streak which could spell disaster in a division that features two 3-1 teams including last years runner up as well as 1 of only 2 unbeaten teams remaining in the league.
QLS v. FNL
As 1 on only 2 winless teams in the league, the Limers are still in search of that elusive first win of the season. It will not be a small feat as the Limers will have to defeat one of the scariest offensive teams in the league this year in Fourth N long to reach that modest milestone. Fourth-N-Long meanwhile can ill-afford another loss this week in a division that may go down to the wire.
ILO v. ELC
The second winless team in the league I-Long this week faces one of the top teams in the league in Eek Le Chat. ELC seeks to keep pace with both the Punishers and Syndromes and cannot afford to miss a beat in such a hotly contested division. With more than half the season left it isn't make or break but every win counts so look for ELC to come out firing in this matchup
PPS v. DRS
In a rematch of last years finals we have the 3-1 Punishers up against last year's champ D Revllers. A win here for Punishers would bring some measure of redemption as well as keep them in the running for the top spot in their division and the league. D Revllers in the meantime is anxious to prove that last years championship run was no fluke. Look for this highly anticipated matchup to go down to the wire.
Game of the Week
4DS v. DBF
As the only 2 unbeaten teams left in the league face off against each other this week we can guarantee that 1 will go home 4-1. In a matchup of this years titans and a possible playoff preview, the Syndromes will look to prove that last years dismal showing was not indicative of a trend. With a very balanced attack 4DS has the confidence that it can defeat any team in the league. DBF as always is a perennial championship contender and will be seeking to prove that this is his year. Who will emerge victorious from this matchup remains to be seen.
