On a perfect night for football, the Victoria Hurricanes were led by quarterback Showtime Williams and the hard running of Chris Sanders, Donnie Butler, and Paris Brown. The offensive play was flawless behind a big and bruising offensive line. The defense played a swarming, gang tackling hard-hitting defense.
The constant harassment of the quarterbacks for the Sharyland Stings were unable to muster any points.
The final score, your Victoria hurricanes 34 and the Stings 0. Game ball goes out to the entire team on a great game.
