The end of the SIFL playoffs are in sight and here is where the league stands.

In the Eastern Conference semi-finals the Columbus Lions beat out the upstart Trenton Steel 62-60 and the Albany Panther crushed the high power offense of the Erie Explosion 68-43.

In the Western Conference semi-finals the undefeated Houston Stallions defeated the Rio Grande Valley Magic 65-62 while the Louisiana Swashbucklers silenced the Corpus Christi Hammerheads 59-20.

The Eastern Conference title game pitted the Albany Panthers against the defending SIFL champion Lions in a heated rematch of the bitter rival teams. Albany was able to pull off the win 75 - 61.

The Western Conference title game had the undefeated Houston Stallions against the Louisiana Swashbucklers.  The Swashbucklers were able to pull off the upset and defeated the Stallions 56 - 41.

Just this afternoon the League announced the SIFL Championship game will take place this Saturday 7/02/11 in the James H Gray Civic Center in Albany, GA.  Pre-game festivities begin at 7pm and kick off at 7:30pm.

Good luck to both teams.
