Game Notes

Game Summary

Shreveport scored 65 points in their last home game and the question that presented itself was “Where did all those points come from?” Friday night the Pirates proved they are for real by breaking the 60 point mark again in a 61 to 11 trouncing of the Ottawa Rough Riders. Shreveport scored two field goals in the first quarter from the foot of Bjorn Nittmo. His 32 and 30 yard field goals were the first of 7 attempts during the game. Ottawa’s Wayne Lammle missed his only attempt of the quarter from 42 yards out but did score the single. The second quarter offered 41 combined points. Ottawa’s first touchdown of the game was scored by Odessa Turner on a 34 yard pass from Sammy Garza. Lammle made the point after attempt. Nittmo made his third field goal of the game from 29 yards out. Receiver Wayne Walker got Shreveport’s first TD of the game on a 57 yard pass from B.J. Tolliver. Nittmo made the convert as he did on all of the Pirates six touchdowns. Martin Patton, who had 5 touchdowns in Shreveport’s last 60 point game, scored the next Pirate TD taking the ball in from the 4-yard line. Ottawa broke up Shreveport’s scoring barrage with a 27 yard Wayne Lammle field goal. Curtis Mayfield took a 55 yard pass from Tolliver into the end zone for the second of Tolliver’s two TD passes. With 0:01 remaining in the half, Patton scored his second rushing TD of the game taking the ball in from the 1-yard line. Following a slow third quarter that saw the only scoring come from a Nittmo 29 yard field goal, Shreveport continued their onslaught in the fourth quarter. Nittmo made a field goal from the 42-yard line then missed one from the 52-yard line to score a single. Backup quarterback Robert Cobb got on the scoresheet taking the ball into the end zone himself five minutes into the fourth quarter. Nittmo got another field goal, this time from 48 yards, before Cobb took the ball in from the 1 again. Nittmo’s convert made the final Shreveport score 61 versus Ottawa’s 11 points.
