Swamp Donkeys (7-1) v. INDY Team #3 (5-3) – Saturday, September 12, and 2020
QB Garrett May passed for a playoff-high three TDs to three different receivers, the teams leader in receiving TDs, Don Jackson was on the receiving end of one of them, and #1 seed Swamp Donkeys grinded out a 22-18 win over #2 seed INDY Team #3 in the Saturday Lincoln Park TURF Men’s INT Flag Football Championship game. Swamp Donkeys made a few chunk plays rushing, but it was the aerial attack that made the difference in this title game. #2 seed INDY Team #3 really struggled defensively in this contest, allowing more than their average of 6.75 PAPG for the regular season. In fact, it was the most points that they have allowed in a game all season. For INDY Team #3, QB Scott Burchett tossed for three TD scores to two different receivers. Unfortunately, it just was not enough to keep up with the determined Swamp Donkeys crew. It was a great season for both squads, and we hope to see them both back on the TURF in the upcoming Fall season competing for another title!
