BOLTS STRIKE DOWN MAMMOTHS, 15-13

BOLTS STRIKE DOWN MAMMOTHS, 15-13

October 24th – Brooklyn, NY –In their first game, the Brooklyn Bolts offense led the charge en route to 27-20 victory over the Boston Brawlers. In Week Two it was the Bolts defense that flexed their muscle, allowing for Nick Marsh to kick a game-winning 36-yard-field goal with 12 seconds left, en route to a 15-13 victory over the Omaha Mammoths.

Brooklyn seemingly picked up where they left off in Week One on their first drive of the game. Kolton Browning led the offense on a 73-yard scoring drive, capped by a three-yard touchdown run from Kareem Huggins with 8:32 to go in the first quarter. The big play on the drive was a 32-yard connection from Browning to A.C. Leonard that brought the Bolts to the seven-yard line. The Bolts missed the extra point, but took an early 6-0 advantage.

That would be all of the offense early on, as both defenses tightened until Omaha got a pair of scores in the final two minutes of the first half. Omaha Quarterback Brock Jensen had a 27-yard scramble with 1:49 to go in the first half that gave the Mammoths a 7-6 edge. Brooklyn quickly went three-and-out, taking just 29 seconds off the clock, and Omaha got the ball back quickly. Jensen was once again at the heart of the drive, connecting with Greg Hardin for a 51-yard pass to set up Jensen’s second score of the final two minutes. The former Kansas State standout scored on a one-yard quarterback sneak to put Omaha in front 13-6 at the half.

After a scoreless third quarter, Brooklyn’s offense got rolling again at the start of the fourth quarter, this time thanks to Kolton Browning’s legs. The former University of Louisiana – Monroe quarterback led a 79-yard touchdown drive, spanning almost nine minutes, and capped it with a six-yard touchdown run on a fourth and goal scramble. Bolts kicker Nick Marsh missed his second extra point of the game, but Brooklyn climbed closer at 13-12 with 10:09 left in the game.

After the team’s traded punts, the Mammoths offense got rolling again late in the fourth quarter, but the Bolts defense made a defensive stop when it mattered. Omaha got the ball as close as the Brooklyn six-yard line, but after a big third down stop, the Mammoths set up for a 24-yard field goal attempt to try and take a four point advantage, but Deron Wilson charged through the line and blocked the kick attempt to keep Brooklyn down only a single point with 2:51 remaining.

With Corey Robinson under center for Brooklyn, the Bolts marched down the field for the winning score. Brooklyn, who had struggled on third down all night, converted a huge third and 10 just before the two-minute warning when Robinson and Leonard connected on a big 17-yard reception. Just three plays later, the tandem hooked up again for a long strike that put Brooklyn in prime position to take the lead. This time on a third and eight, Robinson found Leonard for a 49-yard-connection that brought the Bolts to well within field goal range. Leonard finished the game with four catches for 108 yards, but none were bigger than his final catch. Nick Marsh trotted onto the field with 16 seconds remaining and drilled a 36-yard field goal attempt to give Brooklyn the 15-13 lead.

The Bolts will return to action on Friday evening in Boston at 7:30 PM before returning to MCU Park on Friday, November 7th for the home finale of the 2014 season.
