Blizzard defeats Violence 59-54 in Fantasy Bowl XX; Boston leads in Points Race

For the second consecutive week, the Syracuse Blizzard pulled off a Monday night, come-from-behind victory. Roddy White’s 8-point effort capped this week’s comeback as  Syracuse captured the franchise’s 3rd Fantasy Bowl championship with a 59-54 win over the Happy Valley Violence. The quarterbacks lead the scoring for both teams: SYR’s Aaron Rodgers had the high score with 25 points, while HVV’s Matthew Stafford notched a team-high 23 points for Happy Valley.

The consolation game was also a tight contest with a come-from-behind victory. The Dallas Armadillos rallied behind 4 players in the Monday night game to beat the Boston Wildcats 76-73 and capture the 3rd-place game. The quarterbacks also lead the scoring for both teams in this game, with DAL’s Matt Ryan notching a 15-point effort while BOS’s Cam Newton scored a team-high 20 points.

With one week to go for the league points championship, three teams have a legitimate shot at the trophy. Boston leads in overall points with 993. Syracuse is 31 points back at 962 and Dallas is 39 points back with 954. Philadelphia (77 pts. back) and Happy Valley (82 pts. back) dropped further off the pace this week and would need some big surprises to finish in the money for the total points race.
