Phillips wills Angels into title game

by Ken San Nicolas

Guam - The #2-seeded Shell Hal's Angels have earned a spot in the Miller Football League Championship game next Sunday after handing the #3 seeded Pepsi Warriors a 19-18 playoff loss this afternoon at the UOG Field. The Angels found themselves up at halftime by the narrow margin of 7-6.

An 80-yard pass from Steven Phillips to Jared Ada led to a quarterback sneak on the same drive and put the Angels up 13-6 in the 3rd quarter. The Warriors would come right back as Tommy Morrison found wide receiver Joey Taijeron for their second touchdown connection of the game. The touchdown would cut the Angel lead to 13-12 with one quarter left to go.

With 15 minutes remaining, the Warriors went for the tricks as Stephen Santos faked a punt and ran for a 55 yard touchdown to put his team up 18-13. The Angels would not be denied their championship berth though, as they made a drive from their own 40 yard line with 4 minutes remaining.

That drive led to a 1-yard Ryan Bigler rushing touchdown with 26 seconds left to go in regulation. A Joel Limtiaco interception with 15 seconds left to go in the game would secure the 19-18 victory for the Angels.

With the victory, the Angels find themselves facing the undefeated Cars Plus Rams in the championship game next Sunday at 2:30.
