| No Comments | No TrackBacks
 The Chicago Slaughter (6-5) defeated the West Michigan ThunderHawks (5-6) 83-49 at the Sears Centre Friday evening, gaining sole possession of the final wild card playoff spot in the IFL United Conference.   
The 83 points for the Slaughter was the highest total score in the IFL this season. Quarterback Randy Hutchison and receiver Reggie Gray connected on five touchdown passes.  Hutchison finished the day going 23-for-33 for 281 yards and five touchdowns, while Gray finished with eight catches for 123 yards while former Riverside-Brookfield standout receiver Shatone Powers caught five passes for 63 yards scoring three times.
"This was an important game for us because it gave us the confidence that we can go out and score," said Hutchison, who was quoted in a release.  "The offense played really well, and the defense too.  During the first quarter, we shot ourselves in the foot offensively, but by the second quarter, we got back on track and went from there."
