Week 13 Recap:

 

The Barnstormers were victorious for the second time at home this season after defeating the Utah Blaze 68-32. The first quarter was a game of back and forth between the Barnstormers and the Blaze each scoring after one another. The Barnstormers had the last say in the first quarter along with a missed extra point by the Blaze the score was 21-13. In the second quarter the Barnstormers hit the Blaze hard scoring four times during the quarter. An interception by Khalil Carter midway through the quarter got the momentum swinging in the right direction for the Barnstormers allowing them to score on their next three consecutive possessions and leaving the Blaze scoreless. The Barnstormers went into halftime with a dominate lead after a 10 yard touchdown pass to Jesse Schmidt in the final seconds of the half with a score of 49-26.

 

Both teams were quieted in the second half, but the Blaze were muted scoring only once in the second half. The Barnstormers were already short two of their regular receivers with McCown and Ellingworth both out for the night with injuries, when they put in Larry Kendrick to fill in, but when Blythe was sidelined for the remainder of the game it was Quarterback Brian Villanueva who came in to take his spot at wide receiver. On his first play at receiver, Villanueva caught a 16 yard touchdown pass, to make the score 55-33. Derrick Byrd took away the Blaze’s last possession of the game catching an interception in the final seconds of the game, bringing the final score of the game 68-32.
