Week 9 Games
Our final week of the regular season has arrived ... only two more games stand between your team and the playoffs! Click the image below to view the bracket for next weekend. Every team will play at least two games. Those making it to the final game will play three or four to get there. Please note the game times next weekend are slightly different. Also, we have the BBQ food truck coming back, they'll be at the fields around 11:00 am.
The early games tomorrow are going to be a bit colder than last week. Remember to wear layers, no pockets, and hoods must be tucked into your jersey. The forecast is calling for sunny and 26 degrees to start off our morning. It'll warm up to 35 degrees by the last games of the day.

The full schedule, game scores, and team standings are posted to our website.

See you at Grid Iron after the games! Our final match-ups for the regular season are ...
