Intramural Football Season Kicks Off at Stewart-Hunter
September 26, 2008
<b> FORT STEWART, GA </b> -- The 26th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team's "Challengers" overwhelmed Company A, 3/69th Armor Regiment, 1st BCT's "Speed 'n Power" in a 27-7 blowout during the season opener for Fort Stewart Intramural Flag Football League, Sept. 17.
With dominating speed on both offense and defense, the "Challengers" looked more like a well-oiled late-season machine, than a team playing their first game of the season.
The "Challengers" offense struck early and often, hitting the end zone on all three of their first-half possessions.
A 40-yard touchdown run from quarterback Andre Jones on the first play from scrimmage set the pace of the game.
The "Challengers" dominating play was capped off by a six-yard bullet to receiver Doug Nelson to close the half and bring the score to 20-7.
Under relentless pressure, the quarterbacks from "Speed 'n Power" could not gain any ground against the "Challengers" until late in the second half when receiver Tavares Garret broke wide open for a 45-yard reception, scoring "Speed 'n Power's" only touchdown of the game.
