Miller Bowl looks to be all-out war

Both Angels and Bears will be gunning for more than the title


This Sunday's Miller Bowl is going to be more than a game which will decide the 2001 champion of the Miller Football League...it's going to settle the score. With the Miller Bears and Hal's Mobil Angels splitting their regular season series - each defeating the other once - you can expect this to be al all-out war.

With each team hungry for gridiron glory - Bears looking to repeat as MFL champions and the Angels looking to reclaim their crown - this has all the makings to be game of the year. In the first meeting between the two, it was an old-fashioned, tooth-and-nail brawl, as defense set the tone for the game. Despite a plethora of penalties, the Bears pulled off the thrilling 12-6 victory. Rookie phenom receiver Corey Futrel broke the game open on a long pass play that put the Bears ahead to stay.

The second game was the exact opposite, being a shootout between Bears QB Brant McCreadie and Mobil leader Sean McCoy. Nearly a four-and-a-half hour melee, the Bears-Angels battle resulted in exactly 100 points being put on the board, as the Angels played heartbreaker, ousting the bears 52-to-48. Mobil's Mr. Razzle-Dazzle, the diminutive Josh Fenwick pulled off the two biggest plays of the game, as he scored on a 102-yard kickoff return, and on a seemingly-impossible counter run that wound up becoming a 56-yards mad dash for the end zone. Both plays came during times when Mobil had their back to the wall.

Amazingly, the outcome of both games came down to the final play. In the first game, Bears linebacker Cris Brub lunged at Mobil running back James Buckmon, stopping him cold at the goal line, ending the game. The second meeting was equally as exciting, as Angels utilityman Perry Johnson intercepted a McCreadie pass with 5 seconds left to go in the game to nail the Bears coffin...and end Miller's winning streak at 14 games.

With gameday approaching, and the inclement weather posing unfavorable playing conditions, this is going to be a game for the ages.
