Gila Monster Football accepts invitation to the Salt City Bowl

By Todd Haynie

Thatcher, AZ— The 17th-ranked EAC Gila Monster Football Team has accepted an invitation to attend the 2nd Annual Salt City Bowl in Hutchinson, Kansas, and will go head to head with the 10th-ranked Hutchinson Community College Blue Dragons.

The game will be played at noon local time on Saturday, December 4, 2010, at the Gowans Stadium on the Hutchinson campus.

“We’re excited to play a team like Hutchinson,” said EAC head coach John O’Mera. “The road to the (national) championship always seems to go through the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference and that’s no different this year.”

This will be EAC Football’s second bowl game. The first was its invitation to the Aztec Bowl in Chihuahua City, Mexico, in December 2007, where EAC handily won its game against the Mexico All-Star Team with a final score of 35-9. The Salt City Bowl will be EAC’s first NJCAA-sanctioned bowl game.

The game will be available via webcast at www.saltcitybowl.com.
