Pigs choke, fall back to 2nd seed.

The red Pigs had a chance to wrap up first place, and have a playoff date against the lowly last place Cows.

But they fell to the 3rd place Sheep, setting up a playoff matchup between them, instead of the easy team.

"There's got to be a recount or something we can do?" said Richard Breed via cell phone. "Where's the green party when you need them?"

The Sheep outscored the Pigs 3-2 in the 2nd, and then had the only goal of the third to take this one 4-2. Tripp Talbot was credited with 3 of the 4 Sheep goals.

"We were supposed to lose this one," said Tripp with his hands over his face. "We didn't want this match up. I didn't realize how hard sandbagging was."

Mark Melito had one of the two Pig goals, but the soft game cost him the scoring race, as he fell 3 points behind JA Ambrosino, who went pointless.

Headed into the best of 3 playoff series, Vegas has the Pigs as a slight favorite, as word is out that Marc Teal may be missing week one of the series.
