The Great Midwest Football Conference kicked off their season and we’re officially up and running. Everything went smoothly in week one and it appears to be a success for the league. Here’s a recap of everything that happened.
Flint Fury knock off Great Lakes Bruins 8-6
Flint Fury was the only team in the Southern Division to win their opener. They just barely held off the Great Lakes Bruins in a 8-6 victory. Terence Cureton led the way for the Fury with 4 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 interception. That’s the type of performance needed to get the upper hand in a defensive battle.
Tri-County Crusaders pitch a shutout in 14-0 win over Detroit Red Doggs
The Tri-County Crusaders have the #1 ranked defense in the league after one week. And we all know the old saying “defense wins championships.” If this trend continues the Crusaders are in great shape. The Detroit Red Doggs couldn’t get anything going against them.
Albion Warriors start off on right foot by beating the Battle Creek Assassins 14-6
If we’re going off market size. The Battle Creek Assassins should have an advantage over the Albion Warriors. But the Warriors showed that they’re a well ran organization. Their tight knit approach helped them get the best of Battle Creek 14-6. This is a good indication from the Warriors. Clearly they’re a team that can’t be overlooked in the GMFC.
Northern Michigan Wolves were better than the Petoskey Panthers in 38-20 shootout
The Northern Michigan Wolves had an explosion of offense in their 38-20 victory over the Petoskey Panthers. This is currently the highest scoring group in the GMFC. Most of the other teams have a long ways to go on the offensive side of the ball. Could the Wolves ability to put points on the board be what separates them from the pack?
