The 2nd round of the playoffs in the 2019 season will go down as the longest of rounds in league history. From games that went into double overtime to a game that was suspended due to a power outage.
The West Texas Pride and West Texas Lions fought through a double overtime as the Pride advanced in the Northern Conference.
The Texas Xtreme tried to hold off the Ducks as Houston won, 14-12. And the North Texas Stampede defeated the Dallas Vikings, 26-14.
The game suspended was the Austin Vipers versus the Victoria Hurricanes game. As the game kicked off in Victoria, the electricity to the stadium and 3/4 of the city went out. The game was originally rescheduled for the next day at 5 PM. After much debate, the game continued the following Saturday on the 15th with the Hurricanes leading 6-0 at halftime.
The Vipers came prepared and won in a thriller, 14-12.
Later on that day, they traveled to play the defending champion Ducks. With little time to rest, the Vipers fell to the Ducks, 30-20.
The North Texas Stampede defeated the Pride, 49-25. The win sends the Stampede against the Houston Ducks for the right to hoist the CRAFL Bowl IX trophy.
