Georgia Force Defeats Gladiators 50-41, Ending Cleveland's Season

The Cleveland Gladiators' Arena Football League season came to an end on Sunday afternoon at the Q when the Georgia Force prevailed 50-41 in a first-round playoff game.

A 26-0 run by the Force pretty much wrapped this one up, taking Georgia from a 21-14 deficit to a 40-21 lead. Georgia was able to fend off any Gladiators' hopes with a last-minute touchdown to go up 50-34 and effectively end Cleveland's chances.

Quarterback John Dutton saw his first action since Week Two and came on to lead the Gladiators to three consecutive scoring drives in relief, but the Force were also able to keep scoring to keep Georgia safely ahead.

The Gladiators' season ends with a mark of 10-9, and a division championship, but unfortunately, no shot at the brass ring.

Go here for a complete recap of this afternoon's game.
