On the hottest day of the year so far, last Sunday the London Blitz defeated the visiting South Wales Warriors in their third match of the regular season.
After a slow couple of drives, QB Josh Adamson opened up the score running the ball in for a touchdown, followed by RB Matt Barrington getting a rushing touchdown of his own.
The defence stepped up in the first half, keeping South Wales off the scoreboard, and Raphael Osei's interception didn't make South Wales' four hour road trip any easier. The teams went into the half with the Blitz leading 13-0.
The second half was much of the same on both sides of the ball. Matthew Eva gathered in an interception of his own, with Finnish native Ari Halldorsson and Luke Whitney picking up a pair of fumbles to give the offence great field position in the 2nd half.
Temi Oduyemi wasn't to be left out of the rushing touchdown list, as he put 6 points on the board for the Blitz. The following drive saw QB Timothée Liechti throw his first of two touchdowns to team captain Charlie Joseph.
The South Wales Warriors did manage to get on the scoreboard with a consolation touchdown throw from their QB Sam Huxtable.
It wasn't until the last play of the game where Blitz QB Liechti threw his 2nd touchdown to rookie Kyle Jervier for the WR's first Blitz touchdown as time expired.
The final score was 33-6 to the undefeated London Blitz. The Blitz have a bye week this weekend to prepare for the city rivals London Warriors on Sunday the 22nd of May.
