It's Game Day in Green Bay. Tonight's IFL Playoffs second-round game between the three-seed Reading Express and two-seed Green Bay Blizzard at the Resch Center is, to date, the biggest game of the Express' 2011 season. Obviously... A win tonight will vault the Express into the IFL's United Conference championship game on Saturday, July 9.
The Express proved last week with their 76-33 whooping of the Chicago Slaughter in the first round that the Reading squad is definitely a team to be reckoned with. That Slaughter game was easily the most-exciting one of the season. Tonight, though, the focus is on Green Bay.
Kickoff is slated for 8:30 p.m. EST.
