Game Notes

Game Summary

The battle for playoff positioning in the South Division is fierce. Heading into this game at Legion Field in Birmingham, the Barracudas were trailing the San Antonio Texans by 2 points. San Antonio took an early lead when Roman Anderson hit a 28 yard field goal. Birmingham’s defence countered by blocking Todd Jordan’s punt attempt from his own end zone. The punt was blocked by Ted Long and recovered by Sam Peoples in the end zone for the touchdown. Both teams made field goals before the end of the quarter. Luis Zendejas hit for Birmingham from 43 yards out and Anderson made good for San Antonio from 26 yards out. Ted Long continued a big game catching a 2 yard pass from Matt Dunigan for the ’Cudas next TD. Zendejas kicked the convert. San Antonio kicker Anderson kicked field goals from 19 and 51 yards to head into the locker room at half-time trailing by 5. Birmingham’s defence came out strong in the second half. Shonte Peoples recovered David Archer’s fumble and returned it 42 yards for a TD. Zendejas’ convert attempt was good. San Antonio scored their first TD of the game near the end of the third quarter. Tony Burse carried the ball in from the 3-yard line for the major. Anderson kicked the convert. Birmingham QB Dunigan threw his second TD pass of the game, this time to Schredrick Austin, to extend the ’Cudas lead. Again, Zendejas kicked the convert. Roman Anderson capped a perfect day kicking field goals for San Antonio with a 43 yard shot cutting the Texans deficit to 9 points. Dunigan widened the Barracuda’s margin over the Texans late in the game carrying the ball in from the 17-yard line for a touchdown. Zendejas’s fifth convert attempt was good. San Antonio narrowed the margin with a 25 yard pass from David Archer to Mike Saunders but it proved to be too little too late for the Texans. The Barracudas moved into a tie with San Antonio for second place in the South Division. These teams meet up again, in what could be an extremely crucial game, for the last game of the Regular Season.
