Recap

3rd and longs have been the death of the Rollers defense since they took the field last month and this week wasn’t the week of change. San Francisco conquered Grand Rapids Monday 34-24 and did it in convincing fashion.

It was mostly done without the services of their star quarterback Jasper Hart. Hart and the Bulldogs were dealt a huge blow in the second quarter when the team found out Hart had broken his thigh bone and would miss the remainder of the season. Hart is currently second in the league in quarterback effeciency.

With Hart out, it was backup quarterback Lowell Doyle who stole the show, passing for three touchdowns without an interception. Wide receiver James Cooley was the team’s only standout, averaging over 50 yards per catch en rout to three touchdowns and 263 receiving yards. The Bulldogs only needed 3 offensive yards in the fourth quarter to hold off the Rollers.

Grand Rapids never led in the game but twice cut the defeicit to four late in the first and early in the second half. San Francisco responded both times with touchdowns less than a minute later to rip all hope away from the Rollers. Grand Rapids cut the defeicit to 10 with two minutes to go but failed to recover the onside kick.

San Francisco will likely have to move forward with Doyle at quarterback. The third place Bulldogs face one of the best defenses in the league next week, Oklahoma City. Grand Rapids travels to Orlando for the Walsh Bowl.
