Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

With Kiernan out now I can possible see a late season slide here by the Athletics as he is so important to their offense. A possible seeding switch with Boston if things go south for them.


I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.

Louisville Thunder - 20, Long Island Raiders - 17 - University Stadium - September 7, 1957 - 1 PM ET
1st
0-3 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
7-3 LOU - TD RB Lucas Bush
2nd
3rd
7-10 LI - TD RB Conner Riley
4th
14-10 LOU - TD WR Truman Harry
20-10 LOU - TD RB Stavros Black
20-17 LI - TD WR Robert Lang 

Excitement took over Louisville with rookie QB Leonidas Dumont starting his first career game.
Dumont would throw a touchdown and only 1 interception leading the Thunder to their 3rd win of the season. The injuries on the Raiders end showed their impact with the team falling behind in the 4th, where the Thunder came back and took the lead.
S Johnny Berger also got the majority of snaps for the first time this season and came down with a pick. 

Providence Gold Stars - 17, Montreal Rouge - 13 - New Providence Stadium - September 7, 1957 - 4 PM ET
1st
0-3 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
2nd
7-3 PRO - TD RB Élisée Marchal
3rd
7-6 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
10-6 PRO - FG K Theodore Provost
4th
10-13 MTL - TD RB Scott Mallard White
17-13 PRO - TD WR Willard Brooks 

Providence was able to get one step closer to clinching the division with a win over the Rouge.
DB Quentin Xavier had another pick to bring his total up to 7 on the season.
DB Lee Wolfe had another pick for his second since his return.

Worcester Athletics - 15, Ottawa Royals - 28 - Worcester Athletics - September 7, 1957 - 7 PM ET
1st
3-0 WOR - FG Tevoris Francis
3-7 OTT - TD WR Chester Bennett
2nd
3-14 OTT - TD RB Alexei Volkov
9-14 WOR - TD RB Marcus Devonshire
3rd
12-14 WOR - FG K Tevoris Francis
12-21 OTT - TD WR Ben Roland
4th
12-28 OTT - TD RB Alexei Volkov
15-28 WOR - FG K Tevoris Francis 

The Royals smacked the Athletics in a brutal battle to stay in the battle for the Division title heading into the final week of the season.
Both teams had injuries throughout with WR Chester Bennett and WR Toni Radovanovic both leaving for Ottawa and DB Alexander Bradley and OL Cliff Strautzenberger leaving for Worcester. 
The good news is all 4 should be back for next week for both teams.
With the injury to Bradley, QB Jean Matieau was able to capitalize on a huge play to rookie WR Ben Roland to give the 12-21 lead in the 3rd.  

Buffalo Blue Wings - 31, Indiana Victors - 13 - Buffalo Civic Stadium - September 8, 1957 - 2 PM ET
1st
7-0 BUF - TD WR LeRoy Krueger
14-0 BUF - TD QB Angelo Medina
2nd
14-3 IND - FG K Albert Carney
21-3 BUF - TD RB Arthur Conner
3rd
21-10 IND - TD WR Samuel Floyd
4th
24-10 BUF - FG K Donald Brewer
31-10 BUF - TD RB Pierre LeStrange 

Despite having locked up the West Division with Long Island’s loss, the Blue Wings went ahead with their game plan and smacked the Indian Victors in their home finale.
They would rest some players in the final quarter which allowed former Hawks/Rouge RB Pierre LeStrange to score his first TD of his career after being drafted 6th overall in 1953.
S Frazier Brooks had a huge interception late in the game and almost took it to the house only to be stopped by WR Samuel Floyd.
Unfortunately, DL Craig Newman who Buffalo recently acquired would suffer a season-ending injury in practice earlier in the week.  

Ontario Tigers - 27, Boston Independents - 16 - Kitchener-Waterloo City Field - September 8, 1957 - 5 PM ET
1st
0-3 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
2nd
7-3 ON - RB Clifford Russell
10-3 ON - FG K Nathaniel King
3rd
17-3 ON - TD WR Marqués Gardner
17-6 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
20-6 ON - FG K Nathaniel King
4th
20-13 BOS - TD RB Joel Bonner
20-16 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
27-16 ON - TD RB Clifford Russell 

The Tigers came through with their first win since week 4 to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
LB Aengus Lynch would have a huge game with a pick and a forced fumble to give the Tigers a fighting chance.
Boston had a late comeback with QB Bart Swayze leading the way, but they would fall short with DB Amos King bringing in a pick to set up the final touchdown for Ontario.
The two teams will be the last two who can make the playoffs heading into the final week of the season.

1957 Week 12 
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZSVrNVWGs24/X2P42IR91PI/AAAAAAAACpE/J0hmEoewtB40MIu1WlPRKQW1qmRrvF4xgCLcBGAsYHQ/s800/1957%2BWeek%2B12.png

Louisville Thunder - 9, Worcester Athletics - 17 - University Stadium - September 14, 1957 - 1 PM ET
1st
0-7 WOR - TD RB Leo Ravelli
2nd
0-10 WOR - FG K Tevoris Francis
3rd
3-10 LOU - FG K Thomas McFadden
6-10 LOU - FG K Thomas McFadden
4th
6-17 WOR - TD WR Christian Venegas
9-17 LOU - FG K Thomas McFadden 

The backup Athletics came through with a win to close out their season against the Thunder.
Venegas returned to the lineup and was able to score off of a pass from QB Andrew Glover. 

Long Island Raiders - 18, Buffalo Blue Wings - 24 - Long Island Stadium - September 14, 1957 - 4 PM ET 
1st
7-0 LI - TD QB Rigobert St-Hilaire
7-7 BUF TD RB Pierre LeStrange
2nd
10-7 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
10-14 BUF - TD WR Daniel Irons
3rd
10-21 BUF - TD RB Pierre LeStrange
4th
16-21 LI - TD RB Armando Amaro
18-21 LI - 2PT QB Rigobert St-Hilaire
18-24 BUF - FG K Donald Brewer 

QB Maurice Norris got the start for the Blue Wings in what could be his final career start with his likely retirement coming after the season.
Norris would play well throwing a TD to WR Daniel Irons which was his first career TD.
The Raiders also played around with RB Armando Amaro and QB Rigobert St-Hilaire with a play where Amaro, a former QB, threw a TD pass to St-Hilaire in the first quarter. 

Boston Independents - 21, Ottawa Royals - 21 - Richardson Stadium - September 14, 1957 - 7 PM ET
1st
3-0 BOS - K Johnnie Berg
3-7 OTT - WR Mackenzie Jones
2nd
6-7 BOS - K Johnnie Berg
3rd
6-14 OTT - TD TE Jervonte Howell
12-14 BOS - TD TE Richard Stewart
14-14 BOS - 2PT RB Eddie Thompson
4th
14-21 OTT - TD WR Chester Bennett
21-21 BOS - TD WR Ellis Lindholm 

QB Bart Swayze saves the Independents season on a touchdown to WR Ellis Lindholm clinching the team’s first playoff appearance since 1954.
LB Brent Harper was a huge help with a forced fumble to give Boston one more shot at the touchdown in the 4th. 

Montreal Rouge - 10, Providence Gold Stars - 34 - Mount Royal Stadium - September 15, 1957 - 2 PM ET
1st
3-0 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
3-7 PRO - TD RB Élisée Marchal
2nd
10-7 MTL - TD RB Scott Mallard-White
10-14 PRO - TD WR Sammy Moss
10-21 PRO - TD WR Peter Brooks
3rd
10-27 PRO - TD WR Sammy Moss
4th
10-34 PRO - TD RB Johnnie Stafford 

The Gold Stars finish the season with a bold statement over the Rouge. 
With QB Connor O’Rourke throwing 3 touchdowns, the Gold Stars won their second division title in NAAF history.
Unfortunately, DL Calias McDonough would leave the game with a season-ending injury that occurred on a pretty harmless play.
Marchal made his return to Montreal and scored a TD and would properly thank the Montreal crowd for his time there, meeting with fans following the game.  

Ontario Tigers - 19, Indiana Victors - 23 - Kitchener-Waterloo City Field - September 15, 1957 - 5 PM ET
1st
3-0 ON - FG K Nathaniel King
2nd
3-7 IND - TD RB Laurent Brazeau
6-7 ON - FG K Nathaniel King
6-10 IND - FG K Albert Carney
3rd
13-10 ON - TD RB Clifford Russell
13-16 IND - TD WR Joseph Barry
16-16 ON - FG K Nathaniel King
4th
19-16 ON - FG K Nathaniel King
19-23 IND - TD RB Laurent Brazeau 

With the Tigers already out of the hunt for the playoffs with Boston’s tie, the Tigers just played for Kitchener in the final game in the city.
Rookie DB Jackson Miles, Kitchener native, got to start for the game and came away with a pair of tackles.
QB Duane Logan and RB Laurent Brazeau made their returns to Ontario and both put on a show. 
Logan had a TD pass and Brazeau ran in a pair of TDs including the game-winner.
Much like Marchal Brazeau was all for meeting with fans at the game’s end along with the current Tigers.

Playoff Preview
East Division Semi-Final
Ottawa Royals VS. Worcester Athletics - Royals Stadium at Brewer Park - September 21, 1957 - 6 PM ET
Head-to-Head: W1: OTT 10-23 WOR, W11: WOR 15-28 OTT
A rematch of the 1956 McCallister Cup will kick off this year’s expanded playoffs. The Ottawa Royals are coming in 4-1-1 over their last 6 and are looking like favourites over the injury-riddled Athletics. QB Jean Matieau has kept the Royals at the top for offensive scoring this season, and their defence has been strong considering the losses they had this offseason. For the Athletics, QB Andrew Glover will be making his 4th career playoff start as Riley Kiernan is still out with an injury. There will be several returning pieces like WR Christian Venagas and DB Alexander Bradley who should help the team heading in. RB Marcus Devonshire will likely take on a heavy load on an offence that has thrown the least amount of touchdowns this season. 
My Pick: Royals 

West Division Semi-Final
Long Island Raiders VS. Boston Independents - Long Island Stadium - September 22, 1957 - 6 PM ET
Head-to-Head: W8: LI 27-13 BOS
Both the Raiders and Independents make their return to the playoffs after both missed out last season. The Raiders were among the championship favourites this season, but have had lots of issues on defence, as well as injuries throughout the season. Luckily, LB Rusty McVee will be back in the lineup and will be hungry for playoff action. QB Lyle Painter has been pretty solid this season, but he hasn’t lit up the field. Fortunately, WRs Darryl Duke and Robert Lang will be back in the lineup to provide him with some weapons. Boston is a bit of a wildcard. QB Bart Swayze has been pretty good in Boston’s push for the playoffs, however, he still tends to have some issues that Boston will have to minimize. The good news is their defence has some strong pieces in LB Brent Harper, LB Konrad Aust, and DB Clayton Malone to keep their team in the fight. It will be a close duel in Long Island, but the Raiders are just a better team. 
My Pick: Raiders 

Who's winning this round?

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

I’m taking Ottawa over Worcester simply because I’m not sure the WOR offense can keep up with OTT considering Kiernan is still out. Then I’m taking LI just because they have the more proven talent and experience over Boston.


I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.
