Recap

In what turned out to be quite possibly the best game of the season, Dallas held on to beat the Grand Rapids Rollers 35-30, sending the Rollers back to Michigan with yet another bad taste in their mouth.

The Rollers long list of mistakes cost them the game in the end. In summary, Grand Rapids lost the turnover battle by 3, missed two field goals, failed a two-point conversion, had 7 penalties for 54 yards and failed a fourth down conversion earlier than usual in the fourth quarter.

Grand Rapids kept it close, however, with quarterback Rocco Marconi leading the charge. The pressure built too high on Marconi’s shoulders though. He threw two interceptions in the final five minutes to total three on the day. The Rollers came away with just 3 touchdowns in 6 red zone attempts while the Stars converted all 4 red zone attempts into touchdowns.

In all of the bad, the Rollers got a career-high night from running back David Badha. Badha ran for 180 yards, 20 yards shy of becoming the second player in SFL history to rush for 200 yards in a single game. He had a whopping 19 broken tackles.

Dallas free safety A.J. Ahanotu intercepted a Roller fourth down attempt in the endzone to seal the game for the Stars, his second game-winning pick of the year.

​Dallas can clinch a playoff spot with a win over Orlando next Sunday, August 18 at noon CST.
