Recap

In another Walsh Bowl classic, Grand Rapids scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to climb back and beat rival Orlando 48-45 for the team’s first ever win in franchise history.

The game was the first of its kind in SFL history. With Orlando up 14-7 in the first quarter, the Rollers rattled off 20 straight points to take a 27-17 lead. Orlando would score the next 24 points to regain control, 38-27. The Rollers responded, scoring the next 21 points to take a 48-38 lead in the fourth quarter. Orlando scored on a 5-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Perez in the final minute but ran out of time, failing to recover the onside kick.

Grand Rapids set two records Sunday, scoring 48 points and passing for 499 yards, both single game records. Quarterback Rocco Marconi had his best game as a Roller, 25/36 with four touchdowns and a 125.9 quarterback rating. Running back David Badha had four of the Rollers six touchdowns, two rushing and two receiving, to go along with his 220 all-purpose yards.

The Intimidators turned the ball over four times in the last three quarters and lost despite 589 yards of offense. For the second straight game, Zach Parker had less than 20 carries in a defeat. Roller free safety Marco Silva had two takeaways.

Roller standout Bobby Vesacaro had a career-high 224 receiving yards and two scores. The Rollers defense still struggled on third down but were able to get enough offensive production to secure the road win.
