The Philadelphia Stars defeated the Tampa Bay Bandits 35-28 last Saturday afternoon improving to a 3-3 record which has them sitting second in the North Division and into playoff contention. Stars RB Matt Colburn made a huge impact on the ground finishing with 140 yards and three rushing touchdowns –a clutch performance in the absence of leading rusher Paul Terry.
Prior to Saturday’s matchup, the Stars averaged roughly 65 rushing yards per game but finished with a season-high of 197 yards despite being out-possessed by Tampa Bay. QB Case Cookus finished 11-of-20 for 73 yards and 2 touchdowns.
The Houston Gamblers lost 26-25 to the New Jersey Generals on Sunday night marking their fifth straight loss of the season. With a 1-5 record, the Gamblers are dead last in the South Division, and if playoffs were to start today they would be out of the running. Only the top two teams in each division advance at the end of the 10-week regular season.
This was the second straight week, that Houston lost on the final play of the game. The Generals ran a successful second effort quarterback sneak as the game clock expired. Despite the loss, Gamblers QB Clayton Thorson had a great performance finishing 15-of-19 for 171 yards and three touchdowns, with an interception. Thorson currently leads the league in passing touchdowns (10) this season.
