Apparently the Stallions (2-0) were not satisfied with a forfeit win last week against BK Storm and decided that they would make up for all the missed touchdowns with a 42-20 drubbing of Cool Runnings this past Sunday.
"We wanted to put the league on notice," said Sherwin Kendall, the designated team captain of the Stallions, "We're the best team in this league and we come prepared every Sunday ready to prove it."
Kendall, subbing in for regular Team Captain Bernard May, took control of the offense and put the Stallions' big play offense on display with 10 of 11 passing for 283 yards, 4 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, a perfect 153.8 QB rating, to go along with 4 rushes, 75 yards and a touchdown, with 8 tackles on the other side of the ball. The performance earned him offensive player of the week honors for Week 2.
Cool Runnings shook off last week's loss and were very much in this game at the half off of 2 touchdown passes by QB Eijaz Khan, which tied the game at 14-14. That's when the Stallions clamped down on defense and forced 2 straight 3 and outs. The second half woes continued for Cool Runnings, who gave the ball up on an interception on the next offensive possession, and a turnover on downs after that. Not to be outdone by his teammate Sherwin, Bjorn Oliver put on a show, finding himself open early and often, amassing 6 catches for 185 yards and 3 touchdowns. Cool Runnings got things going late, benching QB Eijaz Khan and replacing him with Amit Kuarlall, who drove the team down the field and ran the ball in for a late touchdown, but it was too late for Cool Runnings (0-2), who are up against another team who struggled this week, Average Joe's (0-2). The Stallions (2-0) take on Ball So Hard University (2-0) in a battle of the undefeateds next week
"We clearly have a lot of work to do," said Gregory Young, captain of Cool Runnings, "but I believe that this team can right the ship and move forward with the confidence we brought in to begin the season and make some noise happen."
Young finished the game with 4 catches for 21 yards, a TD and 3 tackles.BOX SCORE
