An amazingly close and gripping end to the clash between the Golden Phoenix and Blue Ankle Breakers resulted in the Ankle Breakers step into the #1 ranked spot so far in the 2015 competition with a 37-33 victory.
The Golden Phoenix again took their game down to the wire. As per their week 2 game, they had the ball last with 15 seconds remaining after a time out. This time however, they could not make the go ahead score as time expired and the Ankle Breakers instead would stretch their season record to 3-0.
Harry Clarke and Ethan McKean both scored twice for the Ankle Breakers, Liam Shiagetz for the Phoenix had 3 touchdowns.
In the Hurricanes vs White Lions game, two teams searching for their first victory, defense was the premiere early factor. The 0-0 halftime score didn’t last, Daniel Mauga-Hall’s 2 touchdowns quickly put the Lions up for their first win and 29-12 final score.
