Week 6 Results:
SONICS 31 OT
Last weeks games were a mixed bag with many blowouts and some rough weather. This week the action heads to Mitchell field with some fun matchups on the slate.
8:30 Field 1 – Replacements vs Niners:
This is the game of the week! What a juicy matchup between two powerhouses. The Replacements this season have ran through every opponent with ease. Suhail has looked super comfortable and seems to be getting better each week. Can Ali dominate again like he did last season versus the niners in the finals when he won Finals MVP? The Niner’s have taken care of business minus one game against the Browns. Let’s not forget that the Niners still remember last year’s finals loss. Captain Moody has something up his sleeve and we expect this team to be ready to ball. They have shown vast improvement as the season has progressed. Will that be enough to end the Replacements run? Our experts believe that with the weather forecasts showing heavy winds, the Replacements gain a slight advantage. Replacements win in a tight battle.
8:30: Field 2 – Imaan vs Browns:
Imaan returns to action this week against the red-hot Browns. Imaan needs to keep the tempo slow, or the Browns will put them to bed early. They have shown the capability to compete, but have struggled to put it all together. Our experts believe that the Browns will win big.
9:45 Field 1 – All Day vs Replacements:
All Day is coming off a split of their double header last week. They punished TNW, but came down to earth with a beat down via the Niners. The Replacements will be playing a back to back after a very tough first matchup. The boys on All Day must use that to their advantage. Ultimately it won’t matter. Replacements win big.
9:45 Field 2 – Sonic vs Niners:
The Sonic’s are coming off a close win vs the young Falcons. While the Niners will be playing a tough back to back affair. Our experts suspect that the Sonic’s will play the Niners tight, but ultimately, they will come up short.
11:00 Field 1 – TNW vs Sonics:
TNW is coming off a tough weekend of games. They were swept in two tough matchups this past Saturday. One thing to note is these guys bring a great attitude regardless of the result. We really enjoy seeing these brothers in the CFL. Ultimately the Sonics will be too much to handle for the rookies.
11:00 Field 2 -Imaan vs Falcons:
This is a double header for Imaan. While the young Falcons come into this matchup fresh. The Falcons have played very well this year. They have played in some very tight contests, but that hasn’t resulted in wins. Our experts believe they will get a big win this Saturday.

Week 4 Results:
Week 3 Scores:
Game 1: All Day 21 Imaan 0
All Day’s defense put a clamp on Imaan’s young QB. On offense Mango led them to victory with timely passing while rolling out of the pocket.
Game 2: Browns 35 Sonics 33
In the Game Of The Week, the Browns hung on for a narrow 2pt victory versus the in-house fighting Sonics. Earlier on it was all Browns as they picked off Sonics QBs twice which allowed them to have a big lead early. The Sonics regrouped and made a great game of it late in second half, but the missed extra point conversions proved to be costly. As Browns ran out the clock w. 40 seconds left and escaped with a 2pt win.
Game 3: All Day 28. Ballers 26
It was Mango once again leading the charge for AD and helping them secure the second win in one day. The Ballers showed some signs on defense but could not capitalize when It was needed.
Game 4: Browns 41 Niners 25
To a surprise to many, the Browns soundly defeated the high powered Niners by over 2 TDs. Ken, Nafi and company made plays early and often to set the tone early.
Game 5: Replacements 33 Falcons 7
Suhail seems to get comfortable as QB while the defense continues to shine for the champs. Macsood had a great all-around game making plays on both sides of the ball. He continued his streak of 15 straight games with a TD and he also added 2 interceptions. Ali has been also playing tremendously well. He is also making plays on both side of the field. Him and Suhail seem to have a connection. For the Champs to repeat they need to have a well balance effort on both side of the ball. This week it was the young Falcons who fell victim to the well-balanced Replacements.
The first two weeks of CFL were played at Alley Pond Park, which turned out to be a blessing, as we had a good turnout with high energy. The young season has shown a lot of comradery and sportsmanship between the players, coaches, and referees. Coach Tom of the Browns stands out with his continuous admiration and support for the CFL brothers. A shout out to the Hanif bros for looking good each week.
Enough of the sappy talk, this is FOOTBALL!
This week the action returns to the adopted home of the CFL, Eisenhower Park. We will see five games this week. Here are the previews!
Browns vs Sonics (8:30 AM) (Field 1): This is a juicy matchup, which features the dangerous Browns playing the first game of a double dip. The Browns have outclassed All Day and pummeled the young Falcons in their first two matchups. The Sonics easily defeated the Ballers and lost to the defending champions, the Replacements in their first two games. We think this game will feature a lot of emotion from both sides as Pops will be fired up for the Browns, and Waqas will be fueled by a tough loss in the previous week. Remember it is Waqas versus the Browns. That rivalry will never die out. Ultimately, if both teams show up at full strength we see the Browns upending the Sonics.
All Day vs. Imaan (8:30 AM) (Field 2): Aqib has done a good job so far as the Commish of CFL. Now he needs to do a good job with his team. We may be kidding, but All Day has a tough task, as they will be playing the first of a back-to-back double header. They will be facing an inspired and improved Imaan team. Faizan, the young QB #7 of Imaan has shown measurable improvement year over year, and the unit defensively has looked strong. For All Day it seemed that they were missing some important players in week 1. The key for All Day to victory will be if Mango can create enough offense for this group. They will also need to put pressure on the young Faizan. We see this coming down to the final possession. Imaan wins a squeaker!
Niners vs. Browns (9:45 AM) (Field 1): This is the game of the week! Meet offense vs offense. Both teams love throwing the ball deep and putting up serious points on the board. The Browns set a CFL record with 70 points last week, while the Niners were not too shabby with 50+ points of their own. It is ironic in a game fueled by offense; we think the difference maker will be the defense. The Niners historically have created many turnovers led by Estaban (also QB). The Browns too were relentless defensively last week. Our experts think the team that creates more plays on defense will ultimately emerge victorious. The edge goes to the Niners, as they will be playing a very young QB who may be overwhelmed by the Niners athleticism. Do not be surprised for Shu to make an entry.
All Day vs. Ballers (9:45 AM) (Field 2): The Ballers led by Usman and his two brothers are looking for their first win of the season in week 3. They played well last week on offense by creating some very creative trick plays. Offensively they have the skill set to be a very challenging team. Where they lack is on the defensive side of the ball. They must take advantage of the fact that All Day is playing the second leg of a back-to-back. Ultimately, the experts envision the Ballers will continue their search for their first W for at least another week.
Replacements vs. Falcons (11 AM) (Field 1): This is David vs. Goliath. Youth vs experience. Champions vs. rookies. The young Falcons will look to bounce back from their week two loss to the Browns, but the challenge will only get harder. The defending champions are still finding their stride with Suhail leading the offense. The team even had Jeff throwing the ball around as QB out of necessity last week. Either way the young Falcons will struggle against the proven champions. Replacements win in blowout fashion.
A lot of excitement has surrounded CFL as many new brothers have joined. Many of the existing brothers have returned, and the feeling of autumn has never been better. The Crescent Football season has started with very few surprises. The teams expected to win have not only won, but also mostly dominated the action. As far as the league goes, we have seen a very top-heavy outlook thus far. Will that change in the coming weeks? Let us dive into week two’s power rankings!
