Boston’s Roller Coaster Ride Continues

The Boston Dragons once again dip to .500 in their roller coaster like season.

The 1st half did not see the Dragons score a single point. After allowing 2 touchdowns and 2 field goals, Boston went into halftime tired, disappointed, and quite frustrated being down 19-0.

Boston finally put a score on the board early in the 3rd quarter to spark life back into the team when Cooper Rush threw one to  Luke Tasker from 2 yards out. Unfortunately, Pittsburgh did not slow down as they answered with another 10 points, making the score 29-7. Rush struck again late in the 4th quarter with a 57 yard bomb to Jordan Matthews, but it was way too late. Adding insult to injury, Pittsburg kicked a field goal with less than a minute left, ending the game with a another blow out loss for the Dragons, 32-14

It was just one of those games where the Dragons went down big in the 1st half, and they were too far behind for their gameplan to work.

Although Rush threw for 2 touchdowns, he could only manage 162 yards. The offensive live was worse in this one game than the entire season combined, giving up 4 sacks. Andre Ellington only managed 63 yards on the ground and nothing good happened through the air outside of the Touchdowns, with Matthews having a high of 88 yards.

The once stout pass defense fell apart and allowed a season high 465 yards and 4 touchdowns. Craig Roh led the team in tackles with 9. Kyle Emanuel added a sack and a forced fumble to round out the only high points in the game for the defense.

Mike Scifres pinned another 3 inside the 20 and Taysom Hill finally had a game where he averaged over 24 yards per kick return with a long of 34.

The Boston Dragons are on the road in Week 7 to face yet another top team in the league, the Atlanta Firebirds.
