Presidents Trophy – Playoff Semi Final preview
Playoff football comes thick and fast and straight into the semi finals we go. 4 teams, 2 matchups and 1 goal – The Presidents Trophy.
Semi Final Matchups
This tournament is all about the battle between two podcasts and Semi Final 1 sees both podcasts battle it out for a place in the final. ‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) will face ‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys). The captain’s have faced each other twice already this season. The first time was in week 3 where Europe got the win and then again in week 9 where USA got the win. The win here not only means they get to the final but also mini bragging rights for a 2-1 series win.
Semi Final 2 has USA’s ‘Mericaaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA) gonuo against Europe’s ‘AVFCJPS (James). Just like in the other Semi Final, these two teams faced each other in week 3 and week 9. Week 3 went to Europe and week 9 to the USA, so once again not only will they be battling for a place in the final but a 2-1 win over the losing team in this matchup.
The remaining teams will all be fighting it out for overall positions now for the extra bonus points.
The first matchup is between USA’s ‘Mr America’ (Kevin Tompkins) and they face fellow USA team member ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob). The winner of these teams will head into the 5th place matchup.
The other game will see two Europe teams facing off. ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall) will go head to head with ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL). Again the winner will head into the 5th place playoff.
For 9th place we have a 2 week final. Weeks 14 and 15 will determine the positions for 9th down to 12th.
In the 9th place game we have two teams from Team USA going head to head. ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff) will go up against his team mate (Shacknado – Brian)
For the final showdown we have two Team Europe teams fighting it out to be 11th or 12th. In the battle at the bottom ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow) will go up against ‘JoshPattenden7’
