Timeout - 20 vs Lenys Crew - 18

They struggled in the first week, got a forfeit in the second week and have been piling up the points the last two weeks. This is a tough, veteran team, that has its eyes on another championship. Lenys Crew on the other hand seems to be struggling to get players out each week, playing week 1 with only 7 players and again this week with only 7. But Lenys Crew knows how to battle and even playing shorthanded, they were able to keep the game close. Bryan Pomper connected with Drew Blackmon for a TD early and after Duane Cronin was able to come up with a pick-6 mid way through the game Lenys was within one score. Timeout held as long as they could but Bryan Pomper from L-C connected with Mat Davis for a TD to pull the score within 2. All L-C needed was a 2pt conversion to force OT. The conversion failed and Timeout was able to hang on for the W.
