The playoffs are set!
With no surprise the New York claim the overall #1 seed to enjoy home field advantage as they will take on the Boston Cannons this Saturday at 6:30pm. Soon before then, the Ohio Machine, backed by their roaring crowd of loyal fans, will host the Rochester Rattlers at 4:00pm.
Coming into the 2015 season, the New York Lizards stacked up their roster with an All Star cast and many expressed doubt on how well they would all work together. With the regular season behind us, the Lizards finished with an impressive 10-4 record, 2 of the losses coming after locking up their #1 playoff seed, the doubters have been silenced. Their opponents, the Boston Cannons, started off their season shaky with three straight losses but have come back firing to claim their spot in the post season. It’s hard to forget though that 2 of those 3 early losses came at the hands of the Lizards to it is without a doubt the Cannons will bring everything they have to prove how far they have come as a team.
Granted the 2nd overall seed, the Ohio Machine ended the regular season 9-5 also started the season with a few losses but found their way in week 5 and have been rolling since. They will look to continue on that path when they take on the Rochester Rattlers who they split games with during the season. Both squads are loaded with offensive talent from the newcomer Jimmy Bitter for the Machine to the MVP hopeful Jordan Wolf for the Rattlers, this match up will be one you won’t want to miss.
