HUMES AND SABERCATS BOWL OVER GLADIATORS

After a less than stellar week one performance, the San Jose SaberCats got their offense going as HB Cedric Humes ran for 143 yards and 3 TD's and finished the day with 198 all-purpose yardage and 4 TD's.

QB Jared Lorenzen slung the ball around going 12 of 21 for 247 yards, 2 TD's and an INT. Soon to be Hall of Fame WR Darrius Watts left the game without talking to reporters, clearly frustrated with his role getting only one catch for 51 yards.

San Jose ofense will get a test in week 3 as they take on the 2-0 Bismarck Blaze.

SPRINGFIELD AND CONNECTICUT TIE IN SEASON OPENER

The Springfield Slayers pulled out a tie in week one, going 5 quarters and holding on to a 17-17 tie.

The numbers were not the best for either team rushing, but teams were able to throw the ball. Springfield QB Chase Daniel was 17 of 30 for 220 yards, 2 TD's and an INT, while Coyotee QB Ken Dorsey was 36 of 62 for 388 yards, 1 TD and an INT.

Connecticut WR Kareem Kelly caught 17 passes for 183 yards and a TD, while adding 57 yards on 5 punt returns. The 17 catches is tied for 3rd best with many others, with the record being 18 helpd by WR Calvin Schexnayder in 2006, and HB Harold Shaw in 2022.

Coyotee kicker Kyle Brotzmen had a forgettable day, going 1/5 on field goals and missed two in Overtime.

Springfield will host the 1-0 Rochester Raiders while Connecticut will host 0-1 Marion in week 2.

Summary: After falling behind 10-0 early, the Chesapeake Tide took the lead in the 3rd quarter and held on late, winning Gold Cup XXVIII 20-16.

The Reno Express were able to stuff HB Chris Rainey rushing, allowing only 23 yards on 14 carries, however QB Kliff Kingsbury was able to find Rainey as a recieving, leading the team with 9 catches for 100 yards, including the eventual game winner on a 49-yard TD catch in the 3rd quarter.

Training 20-16, Reno had the ball late in the game down to the Chesapeake 20 yard line with 0:39 left in the game. After three incomplete passes, on 4th down with 0:17 left in the game, Chang was sacked by LB Josh Thornhill to seal the game.

The Tide defended their Gold Cup Title and win their 4th title overall, tying both the Portland and the Springfield franchises. They also are the first team to win back-to-back titles since Portland did so in 2007 and 2008.

NEED SOME HELP WITH TEAM PROFILES????

Since you all don't have the game, and perhaps need some help with what a Dallas Offensive Profile does, or a Bears Defensive Profile really does, I have supplied some examples of what would happen if I ran the NFL teams and what the numbers would be.

Basically, ran 3 seasons using the NFL96 teams... runs 1 and 2 had no injury's set, while run 3 did. Also, season 3, I updated the recordbook on a weekly basis.Use these tools to your advantage. CLICK HERE to view.
