Below is a blurb and a link to my article covering the Maniacs 53-27 victory on Saturday night.
The team has won eight in a row and is in sole possession of first place in the United Conference. Their final regular season home game is on June 13th. Most likely there will be one post-season home game, if not more to attend.
So come on out and see the winningest team in the area!
Maniacs Win Eighth Straight, Capture Playoff Berth
By Jake Russell
The Maryland Maniacs rolled to their eighth consecutive victory. Following their 53-27 victory against the now 1-10 Muskegon Thunder and River City’s loss, the Maniacs now have sole possession of first place in the United Conference.
The victory gives the Maniacs an automatic playoff birth in their inaugural season but it didn’t come easy. The team came out flat in the first half, putting up their second lowest performance of the season (17 points) against the Thunder. Coach Steeple must have lit a fire in the locker room because the Maniacs got on the offensive, putting up 36 more in the second half.
The offense was led by specialist Darryl Overton, Jr., (team-high 110 all purpose yards and three touchdowns), quarterback Bryson Spinner, (24 rushing yards, two touchdowns, and tossed three more) and wide receiver Terry Moss (48 rec. yards and two touchdowns).
