Game Notes

Game Summary

This game marked the first for the Texans after spending the past two seasons in Sacramento. It didn’t take long for them to get on the board as QB David Archer scored from 1 yard out 10:30 into the opening frame. K Roman Anderson added his first of 5 converts on the evening, giving the Texans a 7-0 lead. Shreveport replied at the 15:00 minute mark as RB Martin Patton scored on an 11 yard run. The Bjorn Nittmo convert made the score 7-7 at the end of the 1st quarter. San Antonio DE Roosevelt Collins picked up an errant Shreveport fumble and returned it 18 yards for the major at 7:07 of the 2nd quarter. Nittmo and Anderson traded FGs, before Patton hauled in a 61 yard pass from QB Billy Joe Tolliver with 33 seconds left to play in the 2nd frame. This TD made the score all even at 17 at the end of one half of play. San Antonio then put the game out of reach with back-to‐back TDs to open up the third quarter. Gamble scored on a 2 yard pass from Archer and then Archer hooked up with Kralik for a 23 yard major putting the Texans up by 13 at the end of 3 quarters. Anderson added another FG, a 43 yard effort before Brown took the ball in from 23 yards out before Shreveport replied with Scott scooping up a fumble and taking it back 89 yards for the major. After all was said and done, the San Antonio Texans emerged with a 47-24 victory.
