Springfield Foxes win 2012 MSFL Eastern Conference in Epic Defensive Battle.

On September 29, 2012 the #1 Seed Springfield Foxes hosted the Chicago Thunder who last won a National Championship in 2008. The game would be played at the new home of FoxNation, beautiful Sacred Heart Griffin High School Stadium in the Capital City of Springfield, IL.

The Foxes outlasted the Thunder in a defensive struggle. #20 Akeem Topps scored the Foxes lone TD of the game. After a 7-7 tie, the Foxes nailed a short field goal late to take the lead. Then with less than a minute remaining in regulation time and the Thunder in field goal range, Chicago completed a short pass. Then 3 Foxes defenders including #22 Jae Russell and #45 Michael Rose made the play of the game by forcing and recovering a fumble to preserve the Foxes victory and the first ever MSFL Eastern Conference Championship for Fox Nation!

Springfield Foxes Beat the Indiana Generals for the 2nd Straight Game.

On September 22, 2012 after a 2-week layoff, the Springfield Foxes welcomed the Indiana Generals back to The Foxes Den (aka Sacred Heart Griffin High School Football Stadium) for a 2nd round MSFL Eastern Conference playoff matchup. Much to the Generals dismay, the results were similar to 2 weeks prior, with the Foxes emerging victorious once again. The final was 28-14 this time around, thus propelling the #1 seed Foxes into hosting the Eastern Conference Championship Game the following weekend.

The Generals came into this contest off of a hard-fought win versus the Mid-State Steel during Week 1 of playoff action, while the Foxes enjoyed a much deserved “Playoff Bye Week”.

As is usually the case, Dr. Todd & Eugena Austin kept busy on the sidelines during pre-game and into the game as well working on a variety of knee, shoulder, calf, hamstring and low back issues that arose. Using Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Cold Laser Therapy (LLLT) and advanced taping techniques as needed to get our guys back in the game ASAP.

Go Foxes!
