JACKSONVILLE – The (10-0) Jacksonville Sharks are just two wins away from a perfect regular season as they take on the (3-6) High Country Grizzlies at the Shark Tank on Saturday, June 10 at 7 p.m. for Christmas in June.
The Sharks remained undefeated last week during their game against the (0-7) Dayton Wolfpack. The Wolfpack came out strong, ready to make the Sharks prove that they're the best in the league. Even though the Sharks allowed Dayton to tie their record of most points scored in a single game, key players such as Derrick Ross and quarterback Damien Fleming made sure the Sharks offense overpowered Dayton. The Sharks pulled out a 77-32 win, landing their win streak in the double-digits.
The Grizzlies lost their latest game to the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks 67-52. The Grizzlies are now on a three-game losing streak. However, the Grizzlies have only won on the road this season, proving to be a stronger traveling team.
The Sharks last played the Grizzlies in Week 4 in High Country, where they won 68-21. The Grizzlies will be looking to claim back some dominance and beat the Sharks on home field just as it was done to them.
The Sharks will need to rely on Damien Fleming and his talented squad of receivers to drive them down the field into scoring range. The Sharks defense should come into this game expecting a lot more from this High Country team since the last time they faced them, as the Grizzlies have been more high-
