Each week I will be driving into the competition’s matchups and keep you updated with how things are looking week to week. Before the upcoming game week, there will be a rundown of all the matchups in the league and any shenanigans that may have gone down between the two teams midweek.
Week 2 – The Captains
As I did last week, I kick things off with the captains of each team and who they play. Team 5 Yard Rush led by example by getting the win in week one. A win is something that the FTLS boys will be hoping for in week 2 after a poor show last time around.
For Team USA –
‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys) will be searching for their first win with a matchup against Europe’s ‘AVFCJPS (James). AVFCJPS took a late hit in their matchup last week and will be wanting to amend things straight away in week 2. These teams need to be careful as one will walk into next week 0-2 down.
For Team Europe –
‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) go against The US team of ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff). Geoff squeezed out a win in week one and took down the SFB9 king. Still, on a high after that, he now will look to take down the Europe captains. With both teams winning in week 1, they now look to stay undefeated.
Week 2 – Team Member Matchups
Team USA’s ‘Mr America’ (Ktompkinsii – Kevin) pulled a big upset week one to get the win. This week he takes on ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall). Freddie took down the US Captain and will now look to do the same with Mr America. Both teams will want to keep that winning run going.
It was a tough week 1 for these next two teams. ‘We Selected Scut Farkus’ (Shacknado – Brian) took a loss from the Europe captains. Whilst Team Europe’s ‘JoshPattenden7’ (Josh) took a beating from the highest-scoring team of week 1. Neither team will want to be going into next week with an 0-2 record.
Team Europe’s ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL) got off to the best start with a win. He now faces the highest-scoring team from week 1, facing Team USA’s ‘Mericaaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA). Both teams looking strong for the winning streak to continue.
USA’s ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob) will have to dust themselves down as they now face SFB9 winner ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow). Both teams took the L week 1 so will want to bounce back straight away so they don’t start the competition 0-2.
After week 1 the scores are Europe 3 – USA 3. With some interesting matchups this week, who will pull away?
Bring on week 2.
