CFL is back for it’s 7th installment! Many of the legacy franchises return with some fresh faces across the board. Will There be an All Day repeat? The brotherhood continue On Saturday September 10th at Eisenhower Park.
Imaan vs Underdogs (9 AM) – Imaan has been a legacy franchise since day 1 of CFL. The Underdogs make their return for their sophomore season. Imaan has evolved over the years, but has been fairly inconsistent with attendance and performance. The Underdogs showed some good signs last year, but a mix of too much youth and big game experience seemed to be lacking. We expect this game to be close early with both teams finding their footing before the ‘dogs pull away.
Underdogs 20 – Imaan 14
Niners vs. Ballers (10:15 AM) – The Niners have been a legacy franchise since day 1 of CFL. The Ballers have been with the league for a few years. The Niners have been the best CFL team yet to win a title (will this be their year). Historically the Niners have stumbled out of the gate before finding their groove a few weeks in. The Ballers have added some key players to bolster their roster. We expect the Niners to take control early, but the Ballers to fight back and make this a very interesting game. Niners win in the end.
Niners 34– Ballers 20
All Day vs. Halal Bros (11:30 AM) – This is the game of the week! All Day returns to push for a repeat. While Pops brings back a similar team by a new name (Halal Bros). We expect this to be two of the best teams in the league and an early season battle will show some signs on where things stand. One thing is certain we expect this to be a high scoring game with a battle to the end. Ultimately Halal Bros will pull of a big win to start the season.
Halal Bros 34– All Day 28
AK47 vs. Caliphs (12:45 PM) – AK47 return for their sophomore season in the CFL. A mix of injuries and key errors had this team eliminated early in the playoffs last season. They will be motivated to make a deep run this season. The Caliphs return for season number 3 with a rejuvenated nucleus and a team ready to make a big leap forward. We expect this game to be the lowest scoring contest of the afternoon with both teams battling to make key plays. Ultimately the star power of AK will be too much for the Caliphs.
AK 20– Caliphs 13
