The Sarasota Millionaires season came to an end in a 52-34 loss to the Florida Stingrays in the United Football Federation South Conference Championship game Saturday night in Ft. Myers, FL. Six touchdown passes by quarterback Lonnie Young vaulted the Stingrays into the United Cup III championship game to be played on June 1st at Clearwater High School against the Brooksville Ballers.

The Stingrays set the tone early when Lonnie Young jaunted 15 yards for a touchdown less than four minutes into the game wrapping up a 50 scoring yard drive. Leon Hutchins added the two-pointer to give Florida a quick 8-0 lead. The Millionaires first possession ended in a fumble on a lateral pass by Mario Davis that was recovered by the Stingrays at the Sarasota 15 yard line. An early two touchdown deficit was averted when Brandon Johnson intercepted a pass and returned it to the 50 yard line. One play later, running back Mike Ford burst through the line and rumbled 50 yards for the Millionaires first touchdown of the night. The two-pointer was missed making it 8-6.
