Griffins edge Big Bang 70-68 in Fantasy Bowl XV

The Philadelphia Griffins, who lost the 2003 Fantasy Bowl to Oregon by 2 points, turned the tables this year and won Fantasy Bowl XV and the league championship with a 70-68 win over the Big Oregon Bang. The story for the Griffins was RB Ron Dayne, who posted a career game and 26 points. The story for the Big Bang was missed opportunities — Mark Clayton (11 points), Philip Rivers (8) and Laurence Maroney (6) all were on the bench, and any single one of them in the starting lineup would have given Oregon the slight edge.

The Dallas Armadillos easily defeated Keystone 90-52 to capture third place. Dallas’ 90 points was the high score of the week, and vaults the Armadillos into second place overall in points going into the final weekend.

The Happy Valley Violence beat MassIll 56-18 to win the consolation bracket. And in the Cellar Dweller finals, Richburgh defeated Orange County 53-47, leaving the Beach Dudes as the 2006 Ultimate Cellar Dweller.
