San Francisco Demons vs Las Vegas Outlaws

Two weeks prior to this match Quarterback Mark Grieb was a Masters Student at Stanford University in Northern California. Before signing for the Las Vegas Outlaws he asked his department if he could still complete the quarter and play for the Outlaws at the same time.

They gave him their blessing and he fired a 41 yard swing pass to Mark Furrey to give Las Vegas a 13-9 lead in the third quarter – a lead they would not give up as they moved to 3-1 at sole ownership of first place in the West Conference.

San Francisco had taken the lead on Mike Pawlawski’s 13 yard pass to Brandin Young in the second quarter. Rod Smart, better known for the nickname written across the back of his jersey in place of his name: “He Hate Me”, equalised for Las Vegas with a three yard run, but just before halftime Mike Panacuk made it 9-6 to the Demons with a 36 yard Field Goal.

The Outlaws finished off the scoring in the fourth quarter with Paul McCallum’s 43 yard Field Goal. The game finished San Francisco Demons 6 Orlando Rage 13. Mark Grieb, who played under Rage Coach Jim Criner at Scotland Claymores in the National Football League Europe League, went 11 of 23 for 105 yards. Mike Pawlawski completed 25 of 35 passes for 225 yards for the Demons.

Chicago Enforcers vs NY/NJ Hitmen

American Football XFL-style made its debut in Soldier Field in Chicago in freezing temperatures and drizzle on Saturday the 24th of February 2001, with only 14,856 to watch the match-up of the two winless teams after the first three weeks and it was New York / New Jersey Hitmen who went home the happiest, winning 13-0 thanks to two Leo Araguz Field Goals in the first and fourth quarters, and Joe Aska’s 1 yard run in the second.

The Hitmen survived a last-second second quarter threat to keep the 3-0 lead at halftime. Fans opinions were divided. One Chicago fan thought the Enforcers “stank” like the Bears while another thought there was nothing better than going to a Football game in Winter and having a beer and hotdog.
