Game Notes

Game Summary

Birmingham and San Antonio had already secured playoff berths heading into this game. The winner of the game would win the right to host the first game of the playoffs. Defences forgot to show up as the teams amassed a total of 90 points over the night. Roman Anderson opened the scoring for San Antonio. His 47 yard field goal came on the Texans first possession. Luis Zendejas tied the game with an 8 yard field goal minutes later. San Antonio scored next as David Archer carried the ball in from the 1-yard line. Anderson kicked the convert. Kelvin Simmons took advantage of Matt Dunigan being out with an injury by carrying the ball in from the 1-yard line for the major. San Antonio scored next on a 34 yard field goal by Anderson who also missed an attempt later in the quarter but did score a single. The Texans other scoring came on a 27 yard TD pass reception from Archer to Mark Stock. Anderson kicked the convert. Birmingham put a TD on the board in the second quarter as well. Simmons carried the ball in for the second time and Zendejas followed with the convert. San Antonio scored the only points of the third quarter. Newly acquired Heath Sherman took the ball in from the 3-yard line. Anderson kicked the convert and also sent a 39 yard field goal through giving San Antonio a 31 to 17 lead. Birmingham scored 25 points in the fourth quarter but it was not enough as San Antonio scored 17 more themselves. The Birmingham touchdowns came from Grant on a 36 yard pass from Simmons, Simmons on a 1 yard rush, and Britton on a 13 yard pass from Simmons. They also scored on a 34 yard field goal and two converts by Zendejas. Grant also scored a two-point convert. San Antonio touchdowns were scored by Marcus Gates who had a 93 yard kickoff return, and Hess who took a pass from Archer 2 yards into the end zone. Anderson converted both TDs and kicked a 20 yard field goal. The win means the ’Cudas will be traveling to San Antonio next week for the rematch to decide who will play in the South Division final.
