Opening Drive (Sept. 20): Halfway point (for most)

After tonight’s games, most teams in the area will be halfway through their regular seasons. One team that got an early jump on that is Pearl-Cohn, as the Firebirds collected a forfeit victory from RePublic on Thursday. The rest of the area will simply have to win their games on the field. Next week, we’ll begin our mid-term reports on teams after they complete their fifth game of the season.
