Last Sunday, the London Blitz B travelled up to Wembley for their second away fixture of the campaign, looking to even up their season against the unbeaten Wembley Stallions.
The game started well - Blitz DB Steve Yeaman intercepted an misjudged pass from the Stallions QB and returned it for 6. With the extra point converted, the first in Blitz B history, the Blitz led 7-0.
For the majority of the game, the Blitz defended well, setting the edge against the run and keeping the Stallions on their toes.
However, with a couple of key players missing on the Blitz D, the run-focused Stallions offence seized every opportunity to ‘stampede’ downfield, and the Blitz D struggled to contain their well-executed counters.
The Stallions responded quickly to bring the score level, and followed up with another TD to bring the score to 13-7 at the half.
The Blitz did manage to draw level just after the break, but again the Stallions answered almost immediately, and despite a second interception, this time for Blitz DB Nadir Hedioued (pictured above), the Stallions’ momentum carried them for the rest of the game.
The final score: 33 - 15 to the hosts.
