ATLANTA, GA - The GDFL playoffs continued over the weekend with some intense action that left those that didn't win "going to shoot marbles".
All five games in the Xtreme conference were first round playoffs games and four of them were affected by Hurricane Irene last week and had to be pushed back while the South Georgia Seminoles and Georgia Jets had to replay their first round game after the events that occurred that prevented it from being finished.
That's where we'll start in Dawson, GA. The South Georgia Noles overcame a 13-point first half hole to defeat the Jets 40-20. The Jets jumped out early with Smiley Jones taking a screen pass 55 yards for a touchdown, Nick Miller catching a 17-yard touchdown pass and linebacker Bernard Davis returning a fumble 35 yards for a touchdown. The 40 points scored by the Noles were the most allowed by the Jets in a game all season, the Jets had only allowed 42 points all season entering the contest. The Noles opened the second half with a 6-play 61-yard drive capping it with an 11-yard touchdwon pass from Marcus Brooks to Rashard Hunt that tied the game at 20 and swung all the momentum in the Noles favor. From that point forward it was all South Georgia Noles as they added 20 points in the fourth quarter against a tired Jets team for the final margin in their 40-20 win. The Noles will now travel to the Henry County Horsemen for a second round showdown of undefeated teams.
The Fayetteville Horizon defeated the Carolina Bulldogs 31-5 in a Sunday Night playoff game. The Horizon will face the Asheville Grizzlies who defeated the Camp Lejune Bulldogs 30-0 to advance in the playoffs.
Finally in the Xtreme Conference the Chambersburg Cardinals dismissed the Virginia Cougars 48-20 to advance to the second round. The Cardinals led 27-0 at the half and at one point in the third quarter were up 40-7. Chambersburg will face the Hampton Road Hurricanes.
Hampton Roads defeated the South Jersey Lynx 10-0 to earn their spot in the second round.
