It was a historic evening at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium last week. For starters it was the first game for Baltimore fans to cheer on the Stallions and it also marked the first visit for the Texans to Maryland. In the end, it was the Stallions prevailing by a 50-24 score. The two teams traded FG to open up the game and then at 3:22 of the 2nd quarter, Baltimore K Carlos Huerta added his second of five FG on the day, this one from 14 yards away. San Antonio captured their only lead on the day as QB David Archer hooked up with RB Mike Saunders for a 46 yard passing TD. The Roman Anderson convert made the score 10-6 in favour of the Texans. This lead was short lived however as Stallion QB Tracy Ham and WR Robert Clark connected for a 18 yard TD at 10:40 of the second. Just over three minutes later, Ham found WR Chris Armstrong alone in the end zone for a 26 yard major. Huerta’s convert made the score 20-10 in favour of the Stallions. Baltimore was not done there as DB Chris Wright corralled a punt and returned it 69 yards for the score with just 45 seconds remaining in the half. The half-time score read, Baltimore 27, San Antonio 10. A Carlos Huerta 38 yard FG opened up the second half scoring before the Texans replies with Saunders scoring his second TD of the game, this on a 1 yard run. The Anderson convert trimmed the Stallions’ lead to just 13. Ham then put the game out of reach for good going over from 1 yard out at 13:12 of the 3rd quarter. Huerta opened up the 4th quarter scoring with a pair of FGs (51 and 28 yards). Clark then rounded out the Baltimore scoring snagging a 5 yard Ham pass for his second major of the day at 14:35. San Antonio scored on the final play of the game as Kralik hauled in a 27 yard pass from Archer for the major. The Anderson convert made the final 50-24 for the Stallions.
