Early Round Headlines
Cleff Outlasts Moe in OT – One of the most exciting battles in the opening round, this back-and-forth battle between Cleff (Bucs) and Serious Moe (Saints) was something to behold. Moe rallied to tie the game in regulation and even take a three point lead, but Cleff tied things up as regulation time expired and scored on the opening drive of overtime to win, 28-22.
Joke Gets Revenge, Floods Deliverance – The most anticipated first round matchup was a rematch of last year’s Club Championship. This game wasn’t close, however, as Joke (Browns) rattled off 24 unanswered points after Deliverance (Steelers) scored on the opening possession. Joke followed up his 24-7 win with a 27-20 triumph over Crush (Bengals).
Kiv Bounced in Second Round – Kiv looked unstoppable in his first round game against Suspect (49ers), winning 33-8. TDavis (Cardinals) came prepared in Round 2, though, stifling Kiv’s offense throughout the game. TDavis advanced, 16-14.
Alan Falls in First Round – Turbo Jeff (Broncos) used an offensive assault, featuring several aggressive catches in clutch situations to push past Alan (Chargers), 31-27. Alan defeated Problem in the Chargers Club, and was a sleeper pick among many in this tournament.
Drini, Gos Set for Second Round Duel – Gos (Redskins) looks to continue his undefeated streak in the Club Championship. Last year’s belt winner will have to defeat Drini (Cowboys), a dominant player who has a belt of his own.
