If we don’twin, we’re done. We need to win and theyneed to win. It will be an exciting game andprobably come down to the last play.” –Hartford Colonials Head Coach ChrisPalmer on Thursday’s clash with theFlorida Tuskers in Orlando. DESTINY OR DOOMSDAY FORCOLONIALS?  Despite being in lastplace, the HartfordColonials are still alivefor a berth in theUnited FootballLeague Championshipgame Nov. 27 inOmaha. Hartford (2-4)needs to win its tworemaining games andOmaha must lose itsfinal two. If thathappens, Hartford,Florida andSacramento wouldeach finish theregular season at 4-4and tied for second. But the Colonials, whowere all but eliminated two weeks ago after aheartbreaking overtime loss in Las Vegas,would advance to the title game by virtue of the tiebreaker. The UFL tiebreaker procedure states: In theevent of a three-way tie, a head-to-headtiebreaker will first be used to eliminate ateam. For example, if three teams finish tiedwith a 4-4 record, they will be measured headto head within that group of three teams .”  The tiebreaker would favor the Colonialsbecause they would have a 3-1 record againstSacramento and Florida, while Sacramentowould be 2-2 and Florida 1-3. BYE WEEK; HELLO FLORIDA Coming off a bye week, the Colonials play the Florida Tuskers at theCitrus Bowl in Orlando. It is Hartford’s third straight road game and thesecond time the Colonials followed a bye week with a game against the Tuskers. When the teams met in Week 4, Hartford committed a seasonhigh in turnovers (four) and penalties (seven) in a 33-20 loss atRentschler Field. The Tuskers scored 13 points off turnovers. TheColonials led 13-10 at halftime but were outscored 23-7 in the secondhalf. Thursday’s rematch will be televised on HDNet and broadcast onESPN Radio 1410/WPOP-AM. CALIFORNIA BEAMING  The Colonials ended a four-game losing streak Oct. 30 with a 27-26 winat Sacramento. Both of Hartford’s wins have been against the MountainLions, including a 27-10 victory in the UFL season opener at RentschlerField in East Hartford, CT. In the rematch, the Colonials overcame anearly 14-0 deficit and trailed throughout before pulling out the 1-pointwin on Taylor Mehlhaff’s 22-yard field goal as time expired. Secondsearlier, Mehlhaff missed a 42-yard FG attempt but was given a secondchance after Sacramento’s Terrell Maze ran into the kicker. Mehlhaff had missed his first two field goal attempts, from 34 and 22 yards –but made his final two, including 33-yarder that cut the deficit to 26-24with 3:08 remaining. Colonials running back Lorenzo Booker ran for 147yards, a UFL single-game record, and scored the first rushingtouchdown of the season for Hartford. Wide receiver Markee White had  a team-high nine receptions, none bigger than the 69-yard touchdownpass from Ryan Perrilloux. White finished with a franchise-record 152receiving yards. “UNFINISHED BUSINESS” Linebacker Kenny Ingram: “We have unfinished business withFlorida. The first time we played them, we left a lot of corrections outon that field that we need to do. So this week is just finishingunfinished business.” Running back Lorenzo Booker: “It’s good to be in the hunt. But atthe same time thinking about what can happen later does us no good if we don’t take care of what’s in front of us right now. So we just try tomake it a one-game season. Especially since we lost to them the lasttime. We got to look at the tape and look at all the mistakes we madethe last time, and we still had a chance to win the game. So we feel likeif we cut out the mistakes, we’ll be in a heck of a position to getanother win. We haven’t had back-to-back wins this season. I’d like tosee what it feels like to win twice in a row.” Quarterback Ryan Perrilloux: “It’s a huge game for us to get backinto the thick of things. So we’re going to come out and play hard. It’sgoing to be a big game for both of us. It’s going to be a dogfight untilthe end.” RECORD-SETTING PERFORMANCES In Hartford’s 27-26 win at Sacramento, Colonials RB Lorenzo Booker set a UFL single-game record with 147 rushing yards.
