Barracudas try to ride winning wave into playoffs
The CenTex Barracudas professional indoor football team will be hosting the Corpus Christi Hammerheads in a crucial Intense Football League matchup Monday night at 7 p.m. in the Bell County Expo Center.
The Barracudas (7-4) come into the game with a two-game win streak and firmly in third place as the race for playoff positions heats up in the final month of the regular season. Looking to make their third consecutive appearance in the Intense Bowl league championship game, the Hammerheads (9-1) have won six in a row to remain on of the league's two elite teams.
This week's unusual Monday night slated game will be the final regular season home contest for the Barracudas as they must wrap up their schedule with two long road trips to take on the league's top two teams, the defending champion Louisiana Swashbucklers (10-0) June 14, then to Corpus Christi June 21.
While both Louisiana and Corpus Christi clinched playoff berths last week, CenTex remains battling Frisco (6-6), Odessa (5-6), Alaska (4-6) and Katy (4-6) for the final four spots in the postseason tournament.
With the end of the IFL season right around the corner, the focus has turned to the postseason.
The honor of being the 2008 IFL champion has taken on more meaning than in the past. With the unprecedented agreement between the IFL and the United Indoor Football (UIF) league, the champions of each league will meet on July 26 in the home city of the UIF champion.
