The 4th quarter was not good to the Sharks. The Blizzard started off the fourth quarter by sacking Payton. Then on the following play Green Bay’s Ravarius Rivers intercepted a pass intended for Breon Michel. After another Blizzard TD the Sharks lost control of a snap where it was recovered in the endzone by Blizzard Scean Mustin for a Green Bay touchdown.

This put the game out of reach and ended the Sharks night. After a couple garbage time TD’s. The game ended with a final score of 63-35.

With the win Green Bay clinched a playoff spot. While the Sharks return home next Saturday 6/22 for Star Wars night against the Massachusetts Pirates.
