Week 8 leaves teams scrambling for position in hopes of making it into the Top 32 and playoffs.

Dreamstime

With only three weeks left, teams are scrambling for position in hopes of making it into the Top 32 and the league playoffs. The only winless team in the league, Bais, got a pick-six from Nesanel Schwartz and eight sacks from their defensive line to defeat Mash-ters. Bais is only two points from a playoff spot, and has a real chance to move into the Top 32, with winnable games against GWC and Chisis coming up.

Other teams who solidified their playoff resumes this week included the Leviathans, Team Yachad, Afek Oilers, The God Squad, CCJ, Abbey Locksmiths, GWC, DEC, Imrei, Mishaan Levits Plumbing, the Frisch Cougars, and Shimon Swizzies, who defeated Friday rival Oscawana Lake to move into first place overall.

In other results, Launch 3 and MMJ split a pair of games, as did the X-team and OJ Football. Several teams took home three points with a win and a tie this week, including Chabad, Big Blue, and Joey’s Boys.

With this week being Hannuka, the league has a reduced schedule, with no games being played on Friday. But the Briut Modiin Thundermuffins are in action on Saturday night, against the Frisch Cougars at 10:00pm. Other games include Jerry’s Kids vs. Tzionim, Joe’s Eagles vs. Pizzeria Efrat, Mash-ters vs. The Startup Center, MMJ vs. GWC, and Freezee vs. Nicodrops Vapor.
