Manchester Boasts Toughest Strength Of Schedule For Remainder Of Season

If the 2007 arenafootball2 playoffs started today the Manchester Wolves (5-5) will enter the post-season as the 8th and final seed in the American Conference. However the Wolves still have six games left to play and currently boast the toughest strength of schedule out of their other seven post-season hopefuls for the remainder of the season.

Manchester will face the Florida Firecats (7-3) twice, South Georgia Wildcats (7-3) and Wilkes-Barre Scranton Pioneers (9-0), all teams that are either the outright leader or share the lead in their respective divisions. The other two opponents are the Cincinnati Jungle Katz (1-8) and East Division rival Albany Conquest (3-6). "Our schedule never seems to give us a rest as there really aren't any "gimmies" out there these days," said Wolves Head Coach Ben Bennett. "But, we'll get ready to play whoever lines up in front of us."

The American Conference playoffs would currently shake up with the Pioneers holding down the #1 seed, followed by the Quad City Steamwheelers (7-3), Spokane Shock (7-3), Green Bay Blizzard (5-4), Tri-Cities Fever (5-4), Louisville Fire (5-4) and Central Valley Coyotes (5-4).

The Wolves will travel the toughest road en route to their post-season aspirations as they'll face opponents with a combined 34-23 record down the stretch. Only Wilkes-Barre (35-34) will face opponents with more combined more wins then losses as the other six American Conference teams will face a lighter load as they'll face opponents with combined records that boasts more losses then wins; Steamwheelers (27-29), Shock (23-32), Blizzard (32-35), Fever (31-35), Fire (27-40) and Coyotes (32-33).

"We'll approach our schedule one game at a time, we'll practice hard and just believe that we can beat each and every opponent that we'll face," said Wolves wide receiver Pat Rouzard. "It's not going to come easy, but with some hard work and a solid four quarters of football each and every game we'll be able to get it done."

The Wolves (5-5) will visit Ben Bennett's old stomping grounds in Estero, Florida to take on the Florida Firecats (7-3) this Saturday, June 16 at 7:30 p.m. Bennett coached in Florida for two years (2003-2004), leading the Firecats to an impressive 24-13 record which includes a 2004 ArenaCup title, before arriving to Manchester.
