Brooklyn, NY----The ASA College (5-1; 2-0) football team has broken back into the NJCAA top-20 national rankings at #17, released this afternoon by the National Junior College Athletic Association. Ironically enough, the Avengers share the spot with Northeast Football Conference rival, Lackawanna College.
The two teams face off this Saturday, October 10th, at MCU Park in Brooklyn for first place in the NFC, the Northeast Football Championship for the Falcons, and at least a share of the title for the Avengers. Kickoff is slated for 12:00 PM at the Coney Island Stadium.
Both teams enter the game with identical 5-1 records. It will only be the Falcons' second conference game, having already beaten Nassau CC who was ranked #2 nationally (NJCAA poll) at the time they played.
The Avengers return back to their preseason ranking of #17, which is the highest ASA has been ranked in the poll thus far this season.
