Gladiators roll, await Rage

The Bradenton Gladiators clicked in every facet of the game in their recent Florida Football Alliance matchup with the Bay Area Tigers.

Bradenton blasted the Tigers 54-0 to improve to 7-1 and remain tied with the Orlando Rage atop the NFC

Orlando defeated the Brevard Hurricanes 52-13 and defeated the Gladiators earlier this season to hold the tiebreaker for the division title.

There are just two regular season games left, and the two franchises lock horns again.

This time, they'll play each other in Bradenton at the Manatee PAL Complex in less than two weeks.

Currently, the Glads are No. 3 in the FFA's Power Rankings and sit behind the Rage and No. 1 Magic City, the lone unbeaten team remaining in the league.
