In a battle of 1-4 teams this past Sunday fighting for their playoff lives, Average Joe's again struggles to get their offense going, falling to BK Storm, who won its second in a row, 26-6.
"We played well in all three phases," said Disco Gumbs, captain of the BK Storm "We had some early trouble this season, but we are going to make a run into the playoffs and rain on some of these other teams' parades."
Gumbs finished the game with a catch for 3 yards and a touchdown, and a tackle on defense.
Joe's were awarded six points to start the game under the new lateness rules, but that's all they would get from BK Storm. Storm QB Rob Crawford was brilliant all game, going 9/17 for 166 yards and 4 touchdowns with no picks and added 3 runs for 29 yards, en route to achieving offensive player of the week honors for week 6.
Crawford found WR Andre Newsome for a 1 yard score in the first half which tied the game at 6 at halftime. Then the storm offense heated up, scoring on 3 consecutive drives in the second half, including a spectacular 50 yard catch and run by WR Tarell Ellis, to put the game out of reach for Joe's. The last scoring drive, a 20 yard touchdown reception by Paris Crawford was set up by a punt return up the sideline by Storm burner Tayvon Francis for 27 yards.
"I am real disappointed in the way our offense simply cannot execute" said Joe's captain Joe Glori, "but we feel that we are very much still alive in our conference. We will make some adjustments at quarterback and do our best at making the playoffs."
Glori finished the game with a catch for 13 yards and a tackle.
Joe's will need to win this Sunday and have a little help from Ball So Hard University beating the King Cobras to remain in contention.BOX SCORE
