The now 24-6 (in league) WELLINGTON HEAT remain in first place over the KANSAS CANNONS despite the loss on Saturday to the CANNONS, 1-14. With "5" games to go, the HEAT (24-6) & CANNONS (22-8) are not scheduled to play each other again, so the HEAT control their own destiny, and are up a full 2 games over the 2nd place CANNONS. This is the HEAT's 1st loss since falling to the CANNONS on July 3rd. GOOD LUCK HEAT! 

Next action @ CLEARWATER on Sunday!
