The Unsullied were just that this past week, edging the Pit Bullz 14-12 in their league debut.
"Our guys played solid football," said Justin Chew, captain of The Unsullied, "We made very few mistakes and were fortunate to force our opponents into making some, which led to a win today." Chew finished the game with 3 catches for 43 yards.
The game started in near blizzard conditions, which made it difficult for the offenses. Things were looking up for the Pit Bullz when RB Labinot Gashi scampered up the sideline for a 48 yard touchdown on the opening drive. The Unsullied would not be deterred, however, and march 60 yards in 10 plays, including a spectacular catch by WR Mike Chan, before QB Sean Roker would find WR Treyton Moy for a 2 yard grab. A successful 2 point conversion gave The Unsullied a 2 point advantage going into the half.
The second half would start out slow for both teams as the slippery field would prevent any type of passing game to get going. The Unsullied would however find themselves in the driver seat after their first drive would result in points when Jason Quan would haul in a Roker 28 yard pass to put The Unsullied up 14-6 early. The Pit Bullz captain and QB Daniel Berrios struggled to throw all afternoon, but would make up for it with a strong ground game. However, the turnovers were too much to overcome, as he threw his second red zone interception and saw the Unsullied eat up the clock. The Pit Bullz would get one last gasp, as RB Labinot Gashi would find paydirt again on a 12 yard run with seconds left on the clock, but an unusucessful two point conversion would seal the deal for the Unsullied.
"I am optimistic about our team," said team captain of the Pit Bullz Daniel Berrios, "I saw and did some bad things, but also some good things. The season is still young and we will work out the kinks and make our presence felt just yet." Berrios finished the game with 1 of 6 passing for 15 yards, 2 interceptions to go along with 67 yards on the ground and 5 tackles.BOX SCORE
