Battle Ground Football League Week 4

Fort Wayne Wolverines look to make it 2 in a row.

Brien Mitchum-Press Box Report

Week 4 of the BGFL. The Fort Wayne Wolverines who upset the defending BGFL champs the Michiana Thunderhawk’s in week three 6-0 look to do the same to the winless Joliet Bucs, but it would not be easy traveling the three-hour drive to Joliet just outside Chicago.

Once again, the Wolverine D would show up stopping the Buc offense for the whole game, and the Wolverines as a team would put up 20 points and that would be more than enough to secure a victory. The Wolverines who improve to 3-1 in the BGFL north hold first place, while some teams have yet to play the same amount of games. They return home to Haven Hurst Park this weekend to play host to the Lake County warriors (2-1) and have forced 102 points to Fort Wayne’s 64 points but the Wolverine’s stingy defense has allowed 22 points in 4 games.

If the Wolverines can pull off a victory against Lake County, they can get a step closer to winning their division and securing a playoff spot and a high seed and hopefully home field advantage.

Elsewhere in the BGFL

Allen Co Lions 2 Lake County 36-Allen Co continues the struggle of scoring as they have lost 3 out of four games and the road for them will not get any easier and the chances of them making the playoffs are getting slimmer each week.

Indiana Cutters vs Indy Tornadoes- Tornadoes looked good the first two weeks of the season since have dropped to 2-2, along with the Cutters who improve to 2-2 and are in situation to be tied for the 2nd place in the south with 1 game each remaining we shall see what team will pull out the win to gain on the other.

Michiana Thunderhawk’s vs Stateline Seminoles-In what was the weekly crossover game the Thunderhawk’s were looking to rebound from the upset the previous week to the Fort Wayne Wolverines they take on Stateline Seminoles (1-3) the Thunderhawk’s would come out on top in another close game to improve to 2-2 in the north.
