Birmingham Iron v San Diego Fleet – Game Recap

After winning last week in a thrilling game on a last second field goal, the San Diego Fleet were hoping to remain undefeated in San Diego with a game against the struggling Birmingham Iron. The Iron had lost two games in a row, and while they were still in position to make the playoffs after the Atlanta Legends lost earlier in the day, a win against the Fleet would go a long way towards helping them potentially make the playoffs.

The Fleet had first place dreams of their own, and also needed a win to match what the San Antonio Commanders had done earlier in the game. Alas, it was not to be, as the Fleet lost 32-29 on the Iron’s last second field goal. It was a back and forth game (at least once the Fleet came back from a 12-point deficit in the third quarter), but they could not find a win. The Fleet fell to 3-3, while the Iron improved to 4-2.

Here’s how it went down:

San Antonio Commanders v Atlanta Legends – Game Recap

It’s not often that you outgain your opponent on offense and lose by 31 points, but that’s exactly what happened in Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.

The San Antonio Commanders came into town and thrashed the Atlanta Legends 37-6, the second time this season Atlanta has lost by more than 30 points. The 10,619 fans in attendance went home disappointed, and the San Antonio Commanders return home for the first time in a month in first place.

Here’s how it went down from Georgia State Stadium:

It’s Week 6 in the Alliance!

Some questions we have entering this weekend’s action:

  • Who is going to take control in the West?
  • Will any team decide that running the ball is a good way to move it? Or will we see another week dominated by passing?

With those questions and more, we’re excited for the first games of the second half of the season. Here’s a brief look at the four inter-conference matchups:
