Report

The second Stars Football League featured three teams in Southern Florida, playing a 2-game schedule each, with all three teams making the Playoffs. The Fort Lauderdale Barracudas, taking homefield advantage in the Semi-Final, beat the Ft. Myers Swampdogs 21-10, to advance to the first Stars Football League Championship Game, which was also held in Central Broward Park in Lauderhill, Ft. Lauderdale.

Having failed to score during the regular season, the Barracudas again put up a much better showing in the President’s Trophy Championship Game, but this time fell short, with the Daytona Beach Swampdogs winning 16-14. [Ref: 6-8]

About

The Stars Football League was a Professional Spring Football League that played from 2011 to 2013, primarily in Florida, but also in 2011 in New Orleans (Louisiana) and Michigan. It is notable for introducing a 1-2-3 Rule after touchdowns, whereby Conversions are worth 1 Point if Kicked, or 2 Points if Passed or Ran into the Endzone from 2 Yards out, and 3 Points if Passed or Ran into the Endzone from 10 Yards out.
