Having lost by one point in a 7-6 mud fest in London two weeks prior, the recipe for the Towers was clear; Win by two points or more at home. And when the dust settled after a riveting back-and-forth game, the Towers celebrated a hard fought 20-18 win.
The first half of the game was not the offensive shoot-out that one might have expected. Rather the first half was more a case of missed opportunities interspersed by various big plays. In fact with the first quarter ending in a 0-0 tie, the first score came with 6:49 left in the second quarter.
Both offenses are led by very good quarterbacks. Towers’ JR Artozqui has set a very high standard for QB play during his 3+ seasons with the Towers, while Blitz QB Fred Boyle is a multiple Brit Bowl MVP winner.
