OAFL Round 10 & 11 Wraps
The OAFL season is fast coming to end -- regular season anyway. We are on the down hill slide with three matches remaining. The top three spots look sewn up by the Roos, Gargoyles and Hawks. Spots four to six are still yet to be solidified and most likely won't be finalized right up until the final round.
So here's a wrap of the past two rounds:
Etobicoke Roos defeated High Park Demons by 64pts. League pundits say the Dees have lost a couple of elite mids which has hampered their run at a top three spot. The Roos keep rolling on with another notch on the belt. The Hamilton Wildcats dished out one the biggest beltings of the century with a 139-pt win against the hapless Eagles. In one of the upsets of this round, the Toronto Dingos (who had won one game from the last six outings) came from three goals down in the final quarter to pip Guelph by 10 pts in Guelph. The Central Blues delivered an ego blow to the Hawks and produced an upset of their own winning by the barest of margins -- 1pt. And the Toronto Rebels had an easy road trip to Ottawa and came home with a 98-pt win.
In a clash that could possibly determine who plays finals, the Toronto Dingos thumped the Central Blues in the wet by 40pts. The Dingos kept the Blues scoreless in the second half. The Hamilton Wildcats served up another belting -- this time against third-placed Hawks by 61pts. The Hawks have lost their past two games; Wildcats are flying. The Eagles were no match for the Rebels, with the Rebs winning by a comfortable 44-pt margin. High Park beat the visting Ottawa Swans by 65pts over the weekend. A much needed win for the Demons; gallant effort by the Swanies. Match of the round that pitted first versus second on the ladder proved to be a cracker. The Roos and Guelph played out the first draw this season -- Roos 3.10(28) - Guelph 4.4 (28). Is this this first draw ever for the OAFL?
