SET TO HOST THE SEATTLE MIST SATURDAY NIGHT, DENVER STILL DREAMS OF FIRST FRANCHISE WIN

(DENVER,
COLORADO– THURSDAY, JUNE 6th, 2019) After falling to the LA Temptation 47-18 in their first game of the season, the Denver Dream (0-1) are set to face another tough opponent- the Seattle Mist (2-0). After match-ups with LA and Seattle, Denver will be primed and ready to finish out the second half of their season against two teams they have a fair shot at defeating- the Nashville Knights and Omaha Heart. The Dream are still searching for their first franchise win, but if this win came against the 2019 Seattle Mist it would be the biggest upset in LFL History to date.

As big favorites, the Seattle Mist are certainly focused on preparation for their final regular season game against the Austin Acoustic later this month. KK Matheny is adding to her legacy as arguably the best quarterback to ever compete in the LFL, as she chases her third Legends Cup Championship. This season her Mist offense features the most talent that’s ever been around her, with four other future Hall-of-famers, Alli Alberts, Jade Randle, Dominique Malloy, and Stevi Schnoor. So far this season, Matheny has completed 17-of-27 passes for 197 yards, throwing 5 touchdowns and only one interception. After Saturday against Denver, those passing numbers could easily be doubled.

Hosting their final home game of 2019, Denver would love to give their fans something to be proud of. As huge underdogs, the Dream have nothing to lose but a lot to gain. With Nashville and Omaha on the schedule to finish out the season, Denver can take a lot from this match against the league’s top team.

Dream quarterback Britney Perea has shown vast improvement and with talented weapons around her, Denver should be able to move the chains and make plays against Seattle. In their season opener against LA, rookie wide-receiver Jessica Poole came onto the LFL scene with two outstanding touchdown receptions. Look for Poole to get many targets in this Week 8 game. Running back Breaya Quintana will get her first start at the position this season. On the defensive side of the ball, end Karie Phelps is coming off an impressive performance against LA with 7 tackles, 1 sack, and 2 tackles for a loss.

The outcome in this game is highly favored in Seattle’s favor, but look for Denver to continue improving. Saturday night’s game will be aired on the LFL’s YouTube channel Saturday, June 15th.
