Defensive Battle gives Lightning Victory over Express
Baltimore,Maryland-The Erie Express traveled to Baltimore, Maryland this Saturday and came up 2 points short. Neither teams offense was able to get much going but the Lightning found themselves with first and goal at the 4 after a pair of unsportsmanlike penalties on the Express. The defense gave them amazing field position. The defense held strong and on fourth and inches Jante Sherrod and a handful of others came up with the big stop to deny the lightning.
The Lightning would score the only points of the game the next play when they sacked newly acquired QB Ejay Scott in the end zone for the safety.
The Express would get into the red zone several times late in the game but both times the end result was an interception in the end zone.
The Express fall to 0-1 while the Lightning take control of the Xtreme North Division.
Erie is off this week but will be making the trip down to Washington to face off against the Washington Bulldawgs while The Baltimore Lightning will take on the Capital City Seahawks both teams will resume play on June 3rd. Game details will be posted once we have them.
