Way to go 0-2

BALTIMORE MD - What started off so hot and promising ended up being a huge head scratcher against the Baltimore Hurricanes this past weekend.


The Garden State Herd (0-1) traveled to Maryland to take on the Baltimore Hurricanes (0-1) in a game that quickly looked like it was going the be The Herd rolling on through.


On the Herds 2nd play of their 1st possession, QB Chase Fairbanks (who got the start over Panasuk) continued his dynamic chemistry with Will Gross III, by connecting on a 6 yard slant into the window in which Gross III took it the rest of the way to the end zone.


After that possession, it is unsure what happened to that Herd offense.

After a couple of back and forth stalled drives between the Canes and Herd, Baltimore QB throws what looked to be a bad decision in the direction of DB Cameron Cotten, who deflects the pass but it somehow still lands into the hands of Hurricanes receiver Kyle McEachern.


Hurricanes extra point was then blocked and taken back for 2 by David Ogbannaya, giving The Herd a 8-6 lead.


Defensive Back Chad Elliott Jr.

The Herd held onto the 8-6 lead until 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter.


Return man Ronald Butler does what every special teams coordinator fears and that's fields a punt inside the 5 yard line.


Offensive coordinator Darrell Linton dials up a jet sweep in which the Hurricanes was ready for and resulted in a safety, tying up the game 8-8.


Hurricanes turn around a drive the ball back down the field before DE Frankie Simmons comes up with a huge sack on 3rd down pushing the Hurricanes to have have to try a 48 yard field goal with 45 seconds left in the game. Canes barefooted Kicker Jordan Goldberg trots out on the field and nailed the 48 yarder with ease giving the Hurricanes the lead 11-8 with 40 seconds to go.


Unfortunately the Herd offense couldn't respond on the final drive despite its best efforts, they fall 11-8 to the Hurricanes and move their record to 0-2 on the season.
