With USFL erupting in Week 5 of the season, only one team remained undefeated.
That’s the Birmingham Stallions, whose ability to find ways to win games they not only sit beautifully at 4-0, but are also firmly at the top of RJ Young’s power rankings. The Philadelphia Stars (2-2) hope to change that.
Here are the main games from the game:
Birmingham Stallions against the Philadelphia Stars
In the opening game of the game, Stars ’Paul Terry hit the ground running (literally) for 43 yards.
Terry put Philly well on the opening drive with two great games. First came the big rush, then he pulled this amazing sideline reception!
Philly ended their impressive opening drive with a two -yard touchdown run by running back Matthew Colburn II.
On the Stallions ’second drive of the game, after a three-and-out on their first drive, Alex McGough found unattended Mookie Dereus for a 17-yard touchdown reception.
Philly started the second quarter as before:
Terry has given us three highlights so far, including this 10-yard touchdown run to turn the Stars back through a touchdown.
Birmingham had enough of Philly’s offensive start to the game and tightened things up on the defensive end. Brody Buck ended Philly’s drive with a sack.
Philly took the previous drive personally and made his own defense, with Amani Dennis intercepting McGough’s pass.
Three are better than left:
Philly didn’t take advantage of the interception via a touchdown, but Luis Aguilar made sure to knock out his first field goal as a Star.
After a defensive end from both teams, J’Mar Smith connected with the best receiver in yards after the catch, Marlon Williams, on a 34-yard touchdown reception, carrying the Stallions within three in Philly, at 17-14.
Philly’s Maurice Alexander Jr. enjoyed a wonderful sideline party!
With the third big defense in the game, Stallion’s DeMarquis Gates got a big sack and was forced to fumble.
The second half starts with the offense:
Unknown Philly was the best attacking team and Birmingham took advantage of it with a 29-yard quick touchdown by CJ Marable, putting the Stallions up 21-17.
In the ensuing Stallion drive, however, Marable made a fumble thanks to a big hit by Josh Banderas.
Brandon Aubrey extended Birmingham’s lead with a 45-yard field goal, making it 24-17.
To finish the third quarter, the Stallions were forced into a fumble.
