Titans shoot down the Falcons

Pennington kicked off and the ball had appeared to be heading out of bounds but a fortunate bounce saw it stop just inside the line at the Falcons 12. Another tackle for a loss by the insatiable Burridge forced a punt and Titans took over on halfway. Strong running from Jonathan ‘Fatneck’ Gago saw him break tackles and the Titans had 1st and goal. The Falcons Defence stood strong and forced the turnover on downs.

The Falcons moved the ball on the ground before they were intercepted again, this time by Safety James Dean; a short return was helped by a personal foul and Titans had the ball on the Falcons 16. Two plays later Gago got his reward for earlier strong running taking the ball from 8 yards out. The wind had relented at this point and Matthew Nelan kicked the extra point to make it 54-0.

Into the fourth and the rain was now relentless. Starting on their own 14 yard line good work by the Titans’ Guimaraes saw a tackle in the backfield followed by a sack. Faced with 3rd and 16 the Falcons passed but Ryan Newton was there for his 2nd interception of the day, this time taking the ball home from 24 yards out for the touchdown. The PAT was missed on a bad snap and the Titans led 60-0.

The running game took over for both teams who had three possessions each, but despite good efforts neither side could mount a serious drive and the game ended with the Titans winning 60-0 and moving to 2 and 0.
