NCFL Bowl II to Be Played on July 10 at Historic Kezar Stadium

The Northbay Rattlers and Salinas Spartans Will Collide to Determine the 2010 NCFL Champions

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) -  The Northern California Football League (NCFL) announced today that the 2010 NCFL Bowl II will be played on July 10 at historic Kezar Stadium near Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The Northbay Rattlers and the Salinas Spartans will face off for the 2010 title.

Both teams finished the 2010 regular season with nine wins and one loss. On Saturday, June 26 the NFC South Salinas Spartans met the NFC North Pacifica Islanders and came away with a 42 to 7 win and the Conference championship. On that same day, the AFC Northbay Rattlers got the second Bowl berth by beating the River City Gators in a close game by a score of 31 to 24.

"Playing our title NCFL Bowl II game at Kezar Stadium is a great honor befitting the caliber of play in the NCFL," said League Commissioner Gus Lopez. "The Rattlers and the Spartans are two of the best Minor League Football teams in the country and this game will be a great battle of will and skills. The winner will likely get a bid to play for the National Title in Las Vegas on August 7."

The Spartans will be led this Saturday by All-Star quarterback, passing and running phenom David Carriedo. The Northbay Rattlers will bring its high-scoring offense, led by All-Stars Joe Beachum (WR) and Albert Higgs (QB), to clash with the dominant Spartans defense. The Spartans defense allowed only 93 points all season.

NCFL Bowl II kickoff is 5pm on Saturday, July 10 at Kezar Stadium. Tickets are available for $10 at the official website at and at Kezar Stadium on game day.
