Round 6 is in the ledger. Another two shutout’s in the seniors takes season 2014-15 to nine, one less than the entire 2012-13 season when there were ten. Round 7 means the season is 50% done. What’s going to happen in the back half?
The Wolverines juniors further cemented a position in the top 4 with a win over the Blitz, holding off a late surge to see them run out 8 point victors. Defense was on show in the Steelers v Vipers game with a single TD the whole game deciding the result. The last game had the Jets run out easy winners over the Broncos to finish the round.
Up in the senior division, the Blitz had an early start to the weekend with a 44 point win over the Wolverines. A lapse in concentration saw the Blitz concede a TD to the Wolverines, their first since Round 1 against the Jets.
The Steelers were handed a sizeable loss to the Vipers, their second on the bounce and taking the season results to 2-3. The Jets and Broncos finished out the round with a tighter battle, the Broncos taking all the points with a 20-0 win.

Friday starts off with the Steelers and Broncos in what should prove to be a defensive battle. Both teams will be looking to make a break into the top 4 by putting some distance between the other, both on 2-3. The junior Steelers will want to take their unbeaten run to 6 and continue to have a 4 point buffer between second place with a win. A win for the junior Saints will put them right back into the finals race in the first game on Saturday while the Vipers will be wanting a piece of second place if they can secure all the points. Up in the seniors, the two 5-0 teams go head-to-head with one of them surely coming out with a 5-1 record at the end of it. A draw won’t be enough to satisfy either of these offenses.
The final games for the round are the Jets and Blitz, seeing out the first half of the season.
