Pierce County Bengals @ Tri-City Rage
Pierce County Bengals (2-0)
Finally they may have found a pocket QB in Kyle Stennes who was 9/18 with 65 yards passing 1 TD passing & 1 TD rushing, but he also threw an INT. RB Baines added a rushing TD with 44 yards and WR Davis had 11 yards and a TD. Defensively, DB Baines had an INT and DL Riddley led the team with 4 tackles and 4 TFL. They will need a more complete game to win against a physical and young Rage team in their HOUSE! Giving up an Early lead to the Hurricanes shows a lack of dominance and they need a win to stay atop the division at 3-0, but traveling and playing a equally physical team may be too much to overcome!
Tri-City Rage (1-2)
The Rage have lost the the 2 best teams in the NW! While that doesn’t help the fact they are 1-2, it does mean their record and scores do not equate to the quality of a team they may be. QB Brown, RBs Summers and Lozano make for a dangerous running game and WRs Roosendaal and Mitchell aren’t too shabby in the passing game as well! Defensively, they need to find the formula that held the Wolfpack to 15 points after giving up 109 points in their two losses. Youth and inexperience caught up with them last week, but this wek they should have more depth and speed than their opponent. Can they rebound from a whooping from the Kings and look to take control of the #2 seed in Division II?
Bengals travel well, but a lack of explosive offensive plays make it hard to keep up with Rage. Bengals keep it close going into the second half. QB brown and RB Lozano get rolling in 2nd half and Rage pull away at home!
Rage win a competitive game 35-13!
