The Barnstormers defense kept the game rolling with two more interceptions in the third quarter to continue to push the offense ahead. The Barnstormers continued to trail throughout the second half but in the final minute of the game the Ryan Vena was able to find Todd Blythe and get into the end zone while the defense was able to hold off the Battle Wings in their final possession of the game and the Barnstormers came out on top 48-42.

Barnstormer Player of the Week: (Week 12)

 

Brent Curvey-DL/LB-#44                   Week 11 Line: 2 Tackles and 1 Forced Fumble

 

Brent Curvey has been a danger standing on the defensive line all season for the opposing team. In this weeks game Curvey caused the forced fumble that was the recovered by fellow Barnstormer Khalil Carter and resulted in the final touchdown of the game to pull the team ahead of the Battle Wings. This is not the first forced fumble that Curvey has caused that has lead to a touchdown. In the victory against Oklahoma City Curvey forced a fumble that Micah King recovered and ran in for a Barnstormer touchdown. Curvey is always putting great pressure on the opposing quarterback and has assisted in many of the Barnstormer sacks against them.
