Wildcats claw past Longfellows 71-40 for Fantasy Bowl XIX Title

The Boston Wildcats road strong performances from QB Tom Brady (12), RB Matt Forte (16), WR Greg Jennings (11) and K Sebastian Janikowski (19) to knock off the top-seeded Keystone Longfellows 71-40 for a win in Fantasy Bowl XIX. Keystone was paced by QB Michael Vick (14) and WR Miles Austin (13). RB Shonn Greene (8) was the only other player to score more than 2 points for the Longfellows.

The 2010 Fantasy Bowl win is the third championship for the Wildcats, who also won titles in 2008 and 1997. The Wildcats have appeared in 4 other Fantasy Bowls, losing in 1994, 1999, 2000, and 2001. The 2001 loss was to Keystone 91-78, and is Keystone’s only previous Fantasy Bowl appearance.

Despite the Fantasy Bowl loss, Keystone held on to win the Overall Points Trophy, edging out Boston 974-967 for the points trophy. The other two playoff teams finished 3rd and 4th in the point race: Happy Valley (948) and Philadelphia (933).

Dallas (925) and Oregon (920) finished 1st and 2nd in high points for non-playoff teams.
