Atlanta Steam 2019

 The Atlanta Steam set for playoff meeting with Seattle this Saturday.

The Eastern Conference Champion Atlanta Steam (3-1) will square off with the Seattle Mist (3-1), the runner-up in the Western Conference, this Saturday in the first of a two-game LFL playoff event to be played at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California. With Seattle averaging 50-points a game during the regular season and Atlanta just shy of 36 a game, the matchup has the makings of a high-scoring affair.  

 

 

Steammates To Watch

 Dakota Hughes leads the Steam to another postseason appearance.

 

Veteran QB Dakota Hughes leads the Steam offense into the post season and is coming off another solid regular season performance. Dakota had the second-best QB Rating (95.7) in the LFL and finished the regular season with 11 TDs and only 2 INTs, a 5 to 1 ratio that was best in the league.

Nicole Hulce is listed as a WR but is the team’s top RB with 153-yards on 26 carries-good for a 5.9 YPC average. Don’t let her size (5’, 109) fool you, Nicole can not only get the tough yards, she protects the ball and only had one fumble this season.

 Jolie Efezokhae, was Atlanta’s leading receiver with 10 for 162 yards and three scores. The 6’1 receiver will no-doubt have the opportunity to be an impact player against Seattle in this contest. With a high-scoring affair looming, look to the Steam to go to the air often.

 Look for Efezokhae to play a big role on the defensive side of the ball as well. Jolie led the Steam in tackes (21) and had a pick.

The Atlanta squad finished No.2 in total defense but faces their toughest challenge of the season against the high scoring Mist. The Steam surrendered an average of just 20-points a game, the fewest (81) in the LFL, but Seattle will be tough to contain.

For Atlanta to move on to the Legends Bowl to face the winner of the second game, LA and Austin, the offense will have to play nearly flawless ball while the defense will have to deliver the best game of the season if they are to hold Seattle to half of their game average.
