A strange first half. The San Diego Fleet had no problems moving the ball until they hit the 30-yard line. Then they became dysfunctional even missing their first field goal attempt. The Salt Lake Stallions had one nice drive in the first quarter they converted into 8 points getting the 2 point conversion. Then the Fleet D got serious and got several 3 and outs.
The first quarter ended 8-3 and the Fleet opened the second quarter with an excellent 11 play drive for their second field goal but again was toothless once they hit the 30-yard line.
Fleet QB Mike Bercovici was obviously working hard on getting the ball out quickly and he only gave up one sack in the 1st quarter. This is a huge improvement from him. He entered the AAF record books by passing for 199 yards in the first half.
The Stallions put together a few mini-drives but never got close until just before the half when they kept finding room in the middle of the field to complete passes and eventually punched it in with a nice sweep but had the TD taken off the board due to a personal foul. Ouch!
Then the Stallions QB gave up his second interception of the game to DB Kameron Kelly, who also was the recipient of his first gift, to kill the drive.
The Fleet need to get their ground game going in the second half. The Stallions need to string together another nice drive.
