The playoffs start next weekend and while your Firecats have already guaranteed themselves a spot in the post season, they can still win the South Division Championship and earn a 1st round home playoff game.

There are a number of ways the Firecats can win the Division and host a home playoff game next Saturday August 4th.

Florida travels to Manchester this weekend to battle the Wolves. South Georgia is on the road as well taking on Tulsa.

1.) If FLA wins and SGW wins FLA finishes 12-4; SGW finish 11-5; FLA clinches South Division and No. 3 seed and hosts a playoff game at home Saturday August 4th

2.) If FLA wins and SGW loses FLA finishes 12-4; SGW finish 10-6; FLA clinches South Division and No. 3 seed and hosts a playoff game at home Saturday August 4th

3.) If FLA loses and SGW loses FLA finishes 11-5; SGW finishes 10-6; FLA clinches South Division and No. 3 seed and hosts a playoff game at home Saturday August 4th

4.) If FLA loses and SGW wins FLA and SGW both finish 11-5; SGW clinches South Division and No. 3 seed because of a head to head tie breaker advantage over FLA The Firecats would more than likely play on the road throughout the playoffs.
