The Brigade (1-1) notched win #1 of their inaugural season on Sunday, downing the Cleveland Gladiators (0-2), 52-49, at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
“I am happy to get our first win,” said Head Coach Omarr Smith. “I am happy for our players.”
Carden shines again
Rookie QB Shane Carden made his first start of the season, looking to follow up last week’s outstanding off-the-bench performance, this time throwing for six touchdowns on 20-of-34 passing. Carden’s primary target was WR Reggie Gray, who corralled 10 receptions for 92 yards and three touchdowns. WR Laquan Williams caught two touchdowns of his own for the second consecutive week. Gray and Williams are part of a five-player tie leading the league with four receiving touchdowns on the season.
Next time out
The Brigade enter their first bye week of the season, but return to action next Sat., April 29 when they travel to Philadelphia to take on the defending-champion Soul at 7 p.m. EDT at Wells Fargo Center.
