Ducks to Play Cerrone in Finals
The Blue Ducks, proud members of the LGIBL, announced Wednesday
that they will play Team Cerrone in the championship game on Thursday at 2:35. The Ducks were deafeted by Team Cerrone in
the regular season by a margin of 9 points. "It will be a great matchup," Spencer Knox told us. "If we stick to our game
we can pull through. This is our second straight trip to the finals. Hopefully we can bring it home this year."
The game is afterschool on Thursday. Make sure you're there.
Ducks To Play the Duck Hunt
The Blue Ducks, proud members of the LGIBL, announced on Sunday that the
team will be playing the Duck Hunt in the semi final round of the playoffs. The Duck Hunt finished the regular season in
second place under Team Cerrone with a record of 4-1. The Blue Ducks are looking to avenge a loss in the regular season to
the Hunt, and head to the finals for the second straight year. "We didn't play strong against the Hunt by any means in our
first game," Matthew Kruczlnicki told us. "Having [Matt] Kloepfer and [Mike Carrol Sherwin] out of the lineup that game killed
us." The Ducks defense was solid and only allowed the Hunt to score 16 points during the entire game. However, the offense
lacked its luster and produced a measly 13 points. "None of our shots were falling," said team captain Sean Jarett. "Hopefully
we'll be a little more lucky this time around."
The game is scheduled for this Tuesday at 2:35 PM. Great seats
are still available, so contact the Blue Ducks Box office to purchase yours today!
Blue Ducks Headed for Playoffs; The Outlook
The Blue Ducks, proud members of the LGIBL, are heading to the playoffs
in the coming weeks. The Ducks finished the regular season with a record of 3-2; identical to the regular season record from
the 2003-2004 season. Over the past 3 years, the Ducks have a compiled record of 11-4 in the regular season, as well as a
record of 1-2 in the playoffs. The Ducks, who finished the regular season undefeated last year, won the first round and went
on to play the Monstarz in the championship game. Despite defeating the Monstarz 18-11 in the regular season, the Ducks lost
23-22 in the final game of the season. The Ducks, however, are confident in their post season play. "We could have, and
should have won that game last year," Spencer Knox told us. "But that's in the past, and we're looking to go back to the
Championships again this year."
The Ducks, who have all returning players from last season, have playoff experience and know what it takes to win the big
games. "I think that our experience showed in the shootout against Richmond," Matt Kloepfer told us. "Their guys were real
nervous before they took their shots, and our players were able to keep their composure. I think that's what won us the game."
The Ducks are likely to be seeded 2nd or 3rd, depending on the last regular season game that still has to be played between
the Duck Hunt and the Richmond Oilers. The Ducks, who lost to the Duck Hunt in the first game of the year, are looking to
get revenge. "We were missing 2 of our best players," Rob Bondy recalled. "With Kloepfer and Carrol-Sherwin back in the
lineup, we should really be able to give them a run."
The Playoffs Begin 2 weeks after midterms. Affordable playoff ticket packages are now on sale. Contact the Blue Ducks Box

now that Kloepfer is returning." Last week, Matt Kloepfer was placed on the IR shortly before the start of the game, due
to foot complications follow a skiing incident the day prior to the game. "It was bothing the heck out of me," said Kloepfer.
