SUPER 16 – The Los Angeles Super Chargers advance to 6-3-0 after defeating BIGDOGINTEX 194-172 in the Super 16 Game of the Week. AF Registered Coach Scarlett The Red‘s Chargers are now up by two games in the West Division thanks to the Firebirds‘ late MNF come from behind 158-151 victory over 1 Eye Til I Die. Los Angeles and Oakland will face off in Week 10 in a match that’s practically a must-win for 1 Eye if they’re going to catch the Chargers – a loss would mean they have no more margin of error and could only take the division with a tied record and point advantage. BowMen is 2 games back from LA as well, and in the midst of a 3 game slide after falling to the Who Dats 179-241.
With the victory over BowMen, the 7-2-0 Who Dats, take 8th place on the all-time single game record list and are the league’s new #1 overall franchise. BIGDOG’s loss gives the Who Dats a 2 game cushion over them, and the teams will meet in Week 10 for an all-important show-down. Though the Who Dats cannot clinch the Division with a win, a loss by BIGDOGINTEX means, that like 1 Eye in the West, the best they can do would be to tie records and hope for a points advantage. Meanwhile, Tweety Birds of Prey have now won their second straight game, overtaking Houston for 3rd and may have conquered the schedule monster. They remain the highest scoring team in the league, but at 3-6-0 it may be too late to mount a comeback. It would need to start in Week 10 vs 3-6 Houston, where the loser will be mathematically out of the playoff race.
