Maryland Warriors vs. Jersey Flight - April 6th

Home sweet home. After losing a heartbreaker game on St. Patrick’s Day 40-39 to the Rochester Kings, the Flight returned to Jersey Friday night to play their first home game at the CURE Insurance Arena in Team history. Five different players caught touchdowns from quarterback Steve Panasuk as the Flight rolled to a 71-12 win in their home opener over the Maryland Warriors. Deshawn Waller, Tyriq Smith, Norm Brown, Emery Sammons, and Matt Cohen all caught touchdown passes for the Flight, with Sammons and Waller catching multiple. Jersey got it going right away. After the Warriors got the ball to start, they fumbled on the first play with defensive end Nick Woodman recovering the fumble on the Warriors one-yard line. Panasuk ran it in on the ensuing play and the Flight were off and running. A strong defensive showing was put out as well which included an interception by defensive back Ken Ridley that was run back to the Warriors five-yard line. The home opener was a success from the start. The Flight is off this upcoming week with a bye, but return to action Friday, April 20th at the CURE Insurance Arena with a 7 p.m. tilt against the Richmond Roughriders.
