Guam – The Cars Plus Rams and the Shell Hal’s Angels will collide on the gridiron once again in the Miller Bowl.
The Cars Plus Rams find themselves in next Sunday’s Miller Football League Championship game after beating the Docomo Chargers today 17-0 at the UOG Field.
With Rams quarterback Brant McCreadie resting on the sidelines, the Rams offense was led by second string quarterback Shane Aguon. The Chargers looked to capitalize on his inexperience early as they forced Aguon to fumble the ball twice as well as throw an interception. Aguon kept his composure though and would follow a Hosea Ware touchdown with his own rushing touchdown in the 3rd quarter.
The veteran Rams defense shutdown the opposition, holding Chargers quarterback Jacob Dowdell to just 19 yards on 2 completions and intercepting him 4 times.
The #2 seeded Shell Hal’s Angels have earned a spot in the Miller Football League Championship game next Sunday after handing the #3 seeded Pepsi Warrios a 19-18playoff loss this afternoon at the UOG Field.
The Angels found themselves up at halftime by the narrow margin of 7-6.
An 80 yard pass from Steven Phillips to Jared Ada, led to a quarterback sneak on the same drive and put the Angels up 13-6 in the 3rd quarter.
The Warriors would come right back as Tommy Morrison found wide receiver Joey Taijeron for their second touchdown connection of the game. The touchdown would cut the Angel lead to 13-12 with one quarter left to go.
With 15 minutes remaining, the Warriors went for the tricks as Stephen Santos faked a punt and ran for a 55 yard touchdown to put his team up 18-13.
The Angels would not be denied their championship berth though, as they made a drive from their own 40 yard line with 4 minutes remaining. That drive led to a 1 yard Ryan Bigler rushing touchdown with 26 seconds left to go in regulation. A Joel Limtiaco interception with 15 seconds left to go in the game would secure the 19-18 victory for the Angels.
With the victory, the Angels find themselves facing the undefeated Cars Plus Rams in the championship game next Sunday at 2:30.
Last year the Angels defeated the Rams in the Miller Bowl and are the defending MFL Champions.
