Quarterfinal Game Notes

Stillman vs Faulkner | 6:30 pm ET Watch Live $$$

The two SSAC Division Winners now get to matchup for the 1st time this season. They have been the two best teams in the SSAC and get to face off in a much anticipated matchup. CJ Williamson and Jordan Hamlette have been great for Faulkner this year. Trey Petty and company will try to lead Stillman to the SSAC Tournament Title. As much as it sucks you have to pay for games to watch them, this one will be worth the money!

OTHER NOTES:

SSAC Tournament Page

The SSAC is a (2) bid league. They switched the auto-bids around because of going two divisions with Covid.
