COVINA, Calif.

Defensively the Blackhawks had the Bulldog QB Fausto Buelna on the run all day as they forced him into throwing 4 interceptions while being sacked 11 times. "We actually had 5 starters sit out this game so we can give our two's some solid game action and they did very, very well" stated Blackhawks Defensive Coordinator Steph Ross. DB Curtis Chatmon, who is a starter, picked off two Buelna passes while LB Chris Benson and DB Derl Howard had the others. Howard returned his interception back for a 30 yard touchdown.
