After a tough 23-16 win against the Seattle Dragons, the Battlehawks earned their third Seltzer celebration of the season.
It was business as usual for the Battlehawks, Jordan Ta'amu put on a show for the 27 thousand people in attendance including his parents who traveled from Hawaii to see Jordan play. De'monray Pierson El had 5 receptions for 71 yards and a TD and Keith Ford had probably the hardest 5-yard rush you will ever see.
The offense, however, was not flawless as frustrations continue to build between the play callers and the fans due to their conservative tendencies. One fan went as far as to say he wanted to "throat punch" offensive coordinator Chuck Long.
The defense was as strong as ever doing well enough to bench Seattle QB Brandon Silvers and Will "the thrill" Hill picked off Seattle backup B.J Daniels for the game-winning interception.
However, the greatest strength of this team continues to be the special teams unit with Taylor Russolino going 3/3 with a long of 48 yards and Marquette King having an average punt of 42 yards.
The Battlehawks' next game is in DC against the Defenders and star quarterback Cardale Jones in a clash between the two strongest teams in the Eastern Conference for what is likely a playoff preview.
Expect weekly recaps of the Battlehawks from here on out until then, KA-KAW!!
