Tulsa Talons Crush Our Beloved Iron

We here at The Bucky Channel have somehow been given press credentials for the Milwaukee Iron this season, something we're very appreciative of. However, because of our various commitments (and nights we've chosen to stay in Fondy to chase around girls that have boyfriends... gulp), we've yet to be able to get to a game. That's why when the Iron media guy emails us with a game summary, we're more than happy to post it here for you in an effort to a) get the Iron more exposure but more importantly b) make it seem as if we have more content. So here is the Iron recap, via Joe LaBarbera...

MILWAUKEE – The Tulsa Talons made it six wins in a row by easily handling an offensively challenged Milwaukee Iron team 53-19 before 3,126 fans at the Bradley Center Friday night. Milwaukee quarterback Shane Adler threw two first quarter interceptions. Pierre Thomas returned one for a touchdown. Justin Allgood fired two touchdown passes en route to a 21-3 Tulsa lead after the first quarter. The Tulsa offense scored two touchdowns in the second quarter, but it was their defense that helped build a dominating 37-6 halftime lead. The Talons scored a safety and limited Milwaukee to just 24 yards of total offense in the quarter. Milwaukee’s only offensive production in the second quarter came on kicker Alex Walls’ 41-yard field goal as time expired.

Talon lineman Kamau Jackson sacked Shane Adler, the only Iron Quarterback on the active roster knocking him out of the game. Adler remained down after banging his head on the turf, but fortunately walked off the field with some help from teammates. He did not return to the sidelines. Without another quarterback, wide receiver Scott Burnoski got behind center. Burnoski ran for one TD and threw for another, but his efforts were overshadowed by Tulsa’s insurmountable lead and tenacious defense. Tulsa held a 53-12 lead until Burnoski found Antoine Burns in the end zone with 41 seconds remaining.

Milwaukee’s Antoine Burns had nine catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. The Iron head into the bye week with a 2-6 record and may need to find a healthy quarterback quickly. The Iron play at Albany on May 30. The next home game is June 5 against Mahoning Valley at the Bradley Center. 

As for us here at The Bucky Channel, we can't wait to get to that game on June 5th. Seriously...
