Dolphins vs. Gladiators

November 8th, 2014

PLACENTIA, CA – The visiting #5 seed California Dolphins traveled to the #4 seed So Cal Gladiators and battled their way to a gritty 28-17 win on the road in the Quarterfinals of the NDPFL Playoffs.

It was a Defensive struggle in the first half as the only points came from a 13-yard TD pass from Gladiators QB Joe Felix to DB/WR Buddy Guastella with 13 minutes left in the 2nd Quarter. Felix then found WR Mike Franco for the 2-point conversion pass to make it 8-0.

The Dolphins biggest Offensive threat was thwarted when Gladiators DB Terrell Turner picked off a pass from Dolphins QB Lance Dibene at the Gladiators 16 yard line with 55 seconds left before halftime.

The 3rd Quarter would find the Dolphins Offense finally come alive with a 13-yard TD pass from QB Dibene to RB Robert Ellis. Lance would then run it in for the 2-point play to tie the game at 8 with 10:55 to go in the 3rd.

The Gladiators would respond with a 31-yard FG from K Terrence Harts to re-take the lead 11-8 with 8:01 left in the 3rd.

But the Fins would quickly take their first lead of the contest just 30 seconds later with a 63-yard strike from QB Dibene to WR Chris Duvall with 7:31 to play in the 3rd to go on top 14-11.

The visiting Fish added to the lead with 11:31 to play in the 4th Quarter on another bomb from QB Dibene to WR Duvall – this time from 53 yards out to make it 20-11.

The crushing blow would be added with 2:46 to play in the game as Dolphins RB Zach Owens plowed his way into the Endzone from 8 yards out to put them on top 28-11.

But the host Gladiators refused to quit and matriculated down the field for a 12-yard TD pass from QB Felix to WR Rick Corley with 57 seconds to play to make the final score 28-17 in favor of the Dolphins.

The Gladiators season ends with a 5-4 record in NDPFL play and the Dolphins at 5-4 advance to the Semi-Finals to face the undefeated #1 seed North County Cobras at 8-0.
