Week 14 Recap: Spinners Overcome Alleycats, Revolution

More than a day total spent on a bus, numerous games of Mafia, and two victories against the top two teams in the Western Conference.

It was quite the weekend for the Philadelphia Spinners, who took down the Indianapolis Alleycats, 19-16 on Saturday night before hopping right back onto the bus, travelling down to Kentucky, where they defeated the Revolution, 27-17.

The Alleycats gave the Spinners a close match, keeping the game within three points for the entire 48 minutes. Dave Baer, an o-line starter for the Spinners, tweeted that his team had “some hiccups (possibly due to 12 hour bus ride,” but in the end, Philadelphia was victorious.

Captain Trey Katzenbach congratulated his d-line on Twitter for carrying the team over the course of the game.

On Sunday, after a close three quarters before a crowd of just 129 fans, the Spinners broke away early in the fourth against the Revolution, taking 13 of the last 18 points scored in the contest.

The Alleycats also played back-to-back games, taking on the Columbus Cranes on Sunday following their loss to the Spinners.

The game was close throughout, staying within three points until late in the fourth. Columbus took the first point of the match, and held on for the full 48 minutes, winning 25-20 over Indy.

The Alleycats hope to get Brodie Smith back for the playoffs, as they limp into the Western Conference Finals, with their only win in the last five games coming by way of a forfeit on part of the Connecticut Constitution.

Rounding out the weekend in the AUDL, the Rampage defeated the Buffalo Hunters, 26-21, taking the season series 3-1.

Rhode Island led by just two early in the second quarter, but by halftime their lead had swelled to 14-8.

That six point lead would remain for the rest of the contest, as the Rampage defeated the Hunters, 27-21.
