Philadelphia Takes Northeast Lead With Rivalry Win
The Warriors finished on the right side of a back-and-forth contest with their arch-rivals, New Jersey, to take the Northeast Division lead after three games. New Jersey lead 7-3 at the half, but Philadelphia took it away with 2:13 left in the 3rd thanks to a 52 yard TD pass from Terrell Morrison to TE John Piechowiak. It was short lived, however, as the Pollution capped off the following drive with a Chris Springs 33 yard TD reception from Matt Baez to go up 14-10 24 seconds before the start of the 4th quarter. After each team had failed to score on a drive, Philadelphia took over on its own 23 yard line with 3:49 left in the game. Terrell Morrison put together a drive of beauty, throwing for 3 first downs with passes of 15+ yards and handing the ball off to Cougar LaCordia and Rich Daniel for 32 yards on the drive; Rich Daniel's 1-yard leap into the endzone gave the Warriors the lead at 17-14 with 1:34 left in the game. New Jersey started its two minute drill at its 17 yard line and two plays in Matt Baez was hit by Hans Kowskijulowmen as he threw and the ball floated in the air long enough for Jayden Winford to pick it off and return it 9 yards to the New Jersey 22 yard line. The game wasn't done, however, as Philadelphia could only manage seven yards on three rushes. Dumel Descius kicked a 32-yard field goal to put the Warriors up six with 1:08 to play. The Pollution started their final drive at their 16 with one timeout left. Matt Baez converted on 3rd down 10 with a 34 yard pass to Toby Battle to start moving things a long. Three plays later, Baez found Matt Grengo over the middle for 26 more yards. New Jersey found itself at the Philadelphia 28 with 16 seconds left, but a short dump pass to Ty Steele ended things as he failed to get out of bounds and the Pollution couldn't get up to the line fast enough to spike it. Terrell Morrison was the PoG as he went 9-14 for 181 yards and a TD for a QB rating of 131.4.


Joe McDougal leads Atlanta to first win in 2 years
The Showdown between the Aliens and Wolves in Washington was characterized at first by offenses that couldn't put the ball in the endzone. Washington led 3-0 after the first quarter and 9-6 after the first half. After one last FG late in the 3rd quarter to tie the game, Max Baez intercepted Donno Nabby early in the 4th which led to a Victor Arana TD reception to take a 16-9 lead with 6:30 left. After Washington drove down to the Atlanta 12 and kicked a FG to make the score 16-12 with 4:36 left. Atlanta took the kickoff and drove back down the field for the game-clinching TD from OJ Pimpson on a 23 yard scamper. The TD capped off a 78 yard drive which killed Washington's hopes. A 43 yard Franco Panizo reception on 3rd and 8 helped keep the drive alive. Washington drove down the field one last time, but failed on 4th and 2 at the Atlanta 25 to give the ball back; from there Atlanta ran the clock out with the run.



Crooks Steals Show In Buffalo Win


Rookie QB Ray Crooks may have made a name for himself instantly in his teams opener. Crooks completely 11 passes in a row at one point of the game and was on the verge of breaking the league completion percentage record until two late incompletions killed his chances. Crooks got off to a bad start, and so did his team as the Soldiers fell behind 10-0 after the first. Crooks led his team to 10 points in the 2nd but was still trailing 13-10 at the half. The 3rd quarter is when the game was won. Crooks led three brilliant drives all for touchdowns. All the passes he threw were completions in the quarter including two long TD passes to Billy Kirch and a 32 yard draw play. The Soldiers D also stepped up and held New Orleans scoreless for the quarter as well as picking off two Damien Thompson passes. After three quarters the Soldiers led 31-13. New Orleans stormed back in the 4th however, Damien Thompson bounced back with a few long TD passes of his own; one early in the quarter and one late in the quarter. They scored 13 unanswered points before Buffalo finally got a late FG then stopped New Orleans at midfield with 40 seconds left to win the game and start off 1-0.
