In Week 5 of the af2 season, most games were high flying affairs-as usual. One of the exceptions to this general trend, however, was the fairly low-scoring contest Saturday night between the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz and the Amarillo Dusters.

j100_1253The game saw a defensive stop in the red zone by the visiting Dusters on the Yard Dawgz’ first possession of the game, which was then followed by an Amarillo touchdown. The scoring drive was then followed up by Oklahoma City, with a touchdown reception hauled in by their veteran go-to receiver Al Hunt to knot the score at 7 after the first quarter of play.

The tie did not last long, though, as immediately after the second quarter commenced, the Yard Dawgz struck again – this time, with a touchdown pass from Robert Kent hauled in by the recently re-acquired Danny Howard.

After playing some solid defense, Oklahoma City once again took possession of the ball and spread out their scoring to yet another pass-catcher, Agim Shabaj, making the margin 21-7 early in the quarter.

A 34-yard big passing play was made when the Dusters’ Collin Drafts connected with Craig Fulton, Jr. After a missed extra point, the lead was cut to eight, but wouldn’t stay that way for long. Oklahoma City then marched down the field and after a quarterback sneak by Kent, the scoreboard read 27-13 in favor of the home team. With not much time remaining in the half, the Yard Dawgz then successfully executed an onside kick to regain control of the ball with just 1:11 left.

Then, just as the game started, the red-zone defense of the Dusters held again, leaving Amarillo down 14 as the teams headed into the locker room. Read the rest of this entry »
