Spring 2017 Week 4UpdatedFriday June 30, 2017 byAdministrator ETFL.
GAME 1: HAMPTON REGAL vs. MOODY CONSTRUCTION
It was only a matter of time until one of these two teams started to click, and it was Hampton who rallied together from start to finish to put up their first win of the season! QB Ryan Stephens was in fine form, gaining confidence with his recieving core who helped him put up 20 points in the winning effort. Will Jeyaverran had his breakout perfomance with 12 points while Paul Leckey contributed defensively with 2 INT's. Moody came out strong on their opening drive but yet again failed to finish in the redzone. Sending different rushers in to corral Stephens was all Moody could do to try to slow Hampton down but the big man showed his quickness, dodging the rush and extending plays. Hampton imporves to 1-3 on the season and sets their sites on Transmission Depot for Week 5 in Ajax. [FINAL SCORE: HRM-20, MC-0]. GAME MVP - Will Jeyaverran.

GAME 2: DAWKSPORTS vs. BRENT'S PLUMBING
The second matchup of the day was one we were all looking forward to and did not dissappoint as the top two teams in the ETFL this season went wire-to-wire. Brent's Plumbing struck first on the score sheet with a touchdown to Miguel Morris and DawkSports responded in kind on their following march upfield. Things began to really heat up in the 2nd half with both teams scoring and trading the lead, and some solid chirping across the field. Leading by a touchdown, Brent's had the opportunity to seal the game in the opposing redzone with only 4 plays remaining, when Jason Carter (DawkSports) hustled out an INT return from his own 5 yard to tie the game. Josh.0 Devine kicked the XP which contributed the 1 point difference in this game in favor of DawkSports who won in dramatic fashion, setting up another epic matchup between these two teams come Spring 2017 Playoffs.

GAME 3: DIRECT ELEVATOR vs. TRANSMISSION DEPOT
The 12:00 matchup featured QB Stu McNeill (Direct) vs QB Andrew Heaney (Transmission) in a close game which could have went either way. Transmission led at halftime as they took advantage of some spotty special teams play by Direct. Aaron Racciopa was dynamic on his feet, using his speed to break the game open and nearly house an INT. Direct remained steady, however, and were able to create a few plays of their own thanks to Bohdan Gluch and Ben Masson each having excellent games with 24 points combined. Direct managed to take back the lead in the 4th quarter and were challenged to hold that lead right down to the last play when Bohdan would assert his defensive prowess, batting the last throw of the game in the endozone to win it for Direct. Direct will lock horns with DawkSports in next weeks 1:30 matchup. [FINAL SCORE: DE-32, TMD-28]. GAME MVP - Bohdan Gluch.

GAME 4: SCUGOG SPORTSWARE vs. TRANSMISSION DEPOT
On any other week this game might have been the best of the day as QB Mikey B (Scugog) squared off against QB Rob Pacas. Both QB's were sharp and efficient while they marched the field, each inspiring their players to step up and make plays. Matt Rafuse and Travis Thomas were a lethal combination for Pickering with 26 points between them, while Scugog put forth a solid team-wide effort to put up points and make defensive stops. Sticking with the theme for most of the day this game came right down the the final plays with Pickering trailing by1 point. With two plays remaining QB Rob Pacas got his team to within FG distance and then nailed the 25 yarder for the win. Scugog players watched the ball sail through the uprights in defeat knowing they were only one play away from victory in a game which could potentially have a significant impact on Playoff Standings. [FINAL SCORE: SGS-27, PM-29]. GAME MVP - Rob Pacas.
