It's a rivalry that has already set the field ablaze twice this season, with each encounter painting a unique story. The Grit City Knights kicked off the drama with a narrow 25-22 victory over the Buzzards, showcasing their grit and Mitch Johnson's kicking leg as a final second field goal clinched their victory in the opener.

Now, in the true spirit of football theatrics, these two rivals gear up for yet another showdown - a first-round playoff game that promises fireworks on every snap. The Knights, with a 5-3 record, are determined to prove their mettle once again. Led by the unstoppable rushing force of Stefan "Juice" Branham, who has left rival defenses confounded with his all-purpose yards and scoring prowess, the Knights are poised to ground and pound the Buzzards into submission. And with a defense featuring an aggressive and turnover hungry secondary lead by Devon McCabe and Quan Jones, the Knights come into this game looking to frustrate the Buzzards' passing attack and come screaming to the ball on running plays.
But the Buzzards, standing at 4-4, bring an arsenal of their own. Their defense, both resilience, hard-hitting, and lead by the Dye brothers, is set to challenge every Knights' advance. On the offensive side of the ball, the Buzzards are bolstered by a formidable lineup of versatile wide receivers such as Andre Dickson, Bamm Daniels, and John Payne as well as a dynamic stable of runningbacks that can do plenty of damage to opposing defenses when they can get loose and make plays.
