#ThunderTopPlay, Los Angeles Final

The fans determined that 3 > 2, in that three Douglas McNeil TD’s were better than two Varmah Sonie picks. However, they also determined that 2 > 3, in that the two seed, the forced fumble recovery in the end zone, beat out Antron Dillon’s fourth-down sack to put a dagger in the KISS’ comeback hopes.

So which is true this week? Does Dougie dash away with the LA’s entry into the semifinals?

Or will KC Obi and Bryce Peila combine to take that spot away?

#ThunderTopPlay, San Antonio Final

San Antonio stayed true to form, continuing to be the upset bracket. We’re left with the 4 seed and 7 seed battling each other to face our Los Angeles finalist on Friday.

Here are your San Antonio finalists:

In this corner, here’s the 4 seed, the infamous Sonie/Peila tag team striking the Talons. Big reception? How about no, says Sonie, and Peila returns it into the red zone.

In the other corner, we have the longest touchdown run in Thunder history. We suspect QB Danny “Lightning” Southwick is rigging the vote somehow, but he just keeps getting through…kind of like he got through the Talons’ defense.

Thunder Top Play, SA Region 1 vs 4

Say it with me: Stan Dan’s Big Man TD. You can’t go wrong with voting for something with a fantastic name like that. You can’t go wrong with loving when an offensive lineman scores and gets to dance – it’s one of the sights that makes Arena Football so great.

The Thunder’ All-Arena representatives, Varmah Sonie and Bryce Peila? They came into the league and made it their own. It’s no surprise that they comprised so much of the #ThunderTopPlay bracket when you consider that both were in the league’s Top 10 in interceptions, Sonie was in the league’s Top 5 for forced fumbles, and Peila was in the Top 5 for picking ’em up.  This is just another example of their ball-hawking.

We’re through a week of voting for 2014’s top play! The second round in the top half of the bracket has been set, with eight different players’ highlights being represented, a tribute to how much of a team effort these games are. The big upset of the first round was Danny Southwick, who ran past 2-seed Varmah Sonie with the longest touchdown run in Thunder history.
