Remaining second in the MEC Central Division with a record of 5-4-0, The Crows get a chance at redemption against the Divison leading Manchester Titans.
Week 4 – Divisional Games
Saturday 24th June
The penultimate gameday 4 sees The Crows travel to Wigan – the land of the pies, for a weekend of high stakes. A 3-0 record at the end of the day would put pressure on the current MEC Central leaders, and pretty much guarantee a 2017 playoff appearance.
MANCHESTER TITANS 7-2-0
(2016 record: 9-7-0)
First up on Gameday 4 are Manchester Titans to whom The Crows lost 45-40 in an incredibly tight game on the first gameday of 2017, back in April.
The Crows will be looking to get back to winning ways against their cross city rivals this time round having identified The Titans main threats and put plans in place to deal with them. The Crows will be further boosted by a number of returning personnel on both sides of the ball.
QB, Talha Javed will be looking to improve on his previous stats versus The Titans where he threw to an impressive 5 different receivers! This combined with an improved defence should see The Crows regain their crown of Manchester’s Premier Flag Football Team.
CHESHIRE CAVALIERS 3-6-0
(2016 record: 4-12-0)
Next up on gameday 4 are the Cheshire Cavaliers. The Crows played the Cavaliers in the very first game of the 2017 season, coming away with a 34-18 win against what was evidently an improved Cavs team.
The Crows never really got going in that game, and so will look to produce a more convincing victory, having now settled into the rhythm of the season. The Crows defence will also be looking to increase their contribution to the points tally after defensive scores from Nigel Li and Zalan Toth last time round.
Keep the Cavaliers danger men quiet and The Crows should see this one through comfortably.
WIGAN WARHAWKS 2-7-0
(2016 record: 7-9-0)
The final game of the day comes against the hosts, Wigan Warhawks. Back in Week 1 The Crows overcame a stubborn Wigan defence in the first half of that game to produce a 63-27 win, throwing 6 second half TDs.
Various mid season personnel changes could see the Warhawks field a very different lineup, but The Crows will be confident in seeking a repeat of the Week 1 result.
The Crows will be hyped up for this high pressure gameday knowing 3 wins will be the only acceptable outcome as the push for playoff football continues.
Every snap matters now.
