RUSH AND TALONS TIED AT 27 AT HALFTIME
Before the game even started there was a pre-game brawl between both teams. It took the coaches, referees, and Rosemont Police to break it up. And during the first half there was a lot of pushing and shoving. It’s been a back and forth game with both teams scoring at will. Quarterbacks Russ Michna and Aaron Garcia have thrown for a combined 4 touchdown passes. But the even bigger story is the numerous penalties that were called in the first half. It seemed like the refs were throwing flags on every play instead of letting the teams play it out. On top of that the officials made one questionable call after another.
And the questionable calls only added to the bad blood between both teams as both teams continued to argue with refs and eachother. When the first half ended both teams had to be escorted to the locker room separately. So we’ll see how the game plays out from here. San Antonio starts the 2nd half on offense.
