This will be the seventh time the Fighters and Pirates face off with the last outing ending in a Fighters loss [58-72].


A player to watch this week is TJ Edwards. Edwards returning from a minor injury looks to step foot on the field for the first time since Week 6. Currently leading the league in scoring he seems to add to those numbers this week in a tough defensive match-up.

Another player to watch this week is Martez Carter. Carter a former Pirates player looks to show out against his former team. He has been quite the running back for us this year having 316 rush-ing yards with B touchdowns. Look for him to continue to show as the pirates have a poor rush defense.

Lastly, another player to watch is Defensive Back, Lionel I McConnell. McConnell has been great for us on special teams and defense. Special Teams wise he currently leads the league in return touchdowns (3), one being last game as we sealed the win with his last-second return in the fourth. Defensively, McConnell has been just as good having six interceptions in nine games.
