These 4 divisions play an 8 game regular season and a 3 game post season to crown their Minor League Football Alliance Champion. After a close game between the Kentucky Xtreme and Toledo Thunder, the Thunder were able to edge out the Xtreme 7-6 and be crowned the MLFA Champrions. The game was not without controversy and after a bad call and a close play the Kentucky Xtreme were understandably disappointed and this led to the losing teams locker room sustaining some heaving damage during halftime and or after the game.
