AFL: Jacksonville Sharks Return Home to Face Orlando

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After two consecutive road games, the Jacksonville Sharks return to their home turf this weekend, as the team hosts the Orlando Predators. Kickoff on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is set for 7 p.m. tonight.

Jacksonville (5-5) enters this week just one game behind Orlando (6-4) in the South Division Standings, as each team has eight regular-season games remaining. 

This is the second of three matchups between the two teams, as the Predators topped the Sharks, 55-54, on Sea Best Field in Week 2. Jacksonville will head down to Orlando for the third matchup in Week 19.

The Sharks will take the field on Saturday as winners of four consecutive games, as Jacksonville extended its win streak with a 41-35 victory over the Los Angeles KISS this past Sunday. 

In that game, the Sharks raced out to a 21-0 lead, thanks in large part to Alvin Ray Jackson’s interception return for a touchdown on Los Angeles’ second snap. 

But the KISS battled back, as Los Angeles ultimately had possession of the ball in the final minute with a chance to win the game. The Sharks’ defense stood strong, as Greg Reid intercepted Danny Southwick as time expired to seal the victory.
