Good news for our friends with the Gijón Mariners, they have stormed their way to the 2015 Spanish Serie C Championship Game!!!
When we met with Mariners Daniel Castañon, Jesus Sanchez and Enrique Prado a few weeks ago for dinner, they were concerned about the Federation's interesting plan to make the semi-finals in Serie C a home-and-home affair this year for some unusual reason.
Their collective fears proved to be unfounded.
Last weekend the Mariners went on the road to beat the Cantabria Bisons 49-7. Yesterday, on Saturday in Gijón, the Mariners left no doubt at all about their deserving a spot in the final game as they destroyed the Bisons yet again by a score of 61-7!
The Alicante Sharks beat the Arganda Toros in both of their semi-final games by scores of 20-3 and 13-6.
The Championship Game will be played in Gijón on May 30th between the #1 seeded Mariners (8-0) and the #3 seeded Sharks (11-1).
