Good work is paying off. The Minnesota Freeze picked up their third-straight victory, dumping the Oklahoma Roughnecks 24-19.
“We’ve been focusing on doing the little things right, and it’s starting to show,” said Minnesota coach Dave Dickenson. “We’re going to keep grinding and take all the positive momentum we can get.”
The Freeze offensive was efficient, led by a strong outing from quarterback Mike Reilly. He completed 14 of 21 for 235 yards and 1 touchdown, along with 73 yards on the ground.
Rookie sensation Antonio Callaway was again his favorite target, hauling in 4 catches for 115 yards and a score.
The defense played a great bend-but-don’t-break game, keeping the Roughnecks out of the end zone until under five minutes remained in the game. Up until that point, Oklahoma was limited to a quartet of Lane Clark field goals.
Mike Catapano, DJ Reader, and Joe Ostman each notched a sack to bolster the pass rush.
The 3-3 Freeze look to get back above .500 this week when they travel to play the 2-4 Carolina Generals.
