The Firehouse Subs Jacksonville Axemen have reached an impressive 5 and 0 record for the 2012 season by defeating the Philadelphia Fight before the July 4th holiday weekend break.
The Axemen now return to Hodges Stadium in back to back weekends on July 14 to face the Baltimore Blues followed by July 21 against the Rhode Island Rebellion.
“No one likes to talk about it, but of course we are hoping to take an undefeated record into the play offs”, said Spinner Howland. “We have 2 home games in a row before playing away on July 28, and we hope to attract larger and larger home crowds as we make our run towards another Championship. It’s pretty clear that our players lift and play with more passion in front of larger crowds. The fans really do make a difference on game day”.
Both the July 14 and July 21 games are scheduled for a 5pm kick-off with gates open at 4pm. Walk up entry to either game remains at $5 with $1 Bud Lights on offer for the entire event. In addition to the lovely Jacksonville Axemen Maiden performances and the great regular half time raffle prizes, the Axemen will be offering a special raffle at both these home games for an Autographed Axemen Playing Jersey. Tickets for both raffles are only $1.
