Lovelace Leads a Blowout Performance for the Ballers in Week 1

Opening week usually comes with growing pains on offense, but not for the Ballers. The passing attack, headed by quarterback Rob Lovelace, was on fire. After an early bomb to receiver Evan Ostertag, Lovelace threw a costly interception, leading to 6-points. After that, Lovelace settled in, going 13 for 21 on his throws. He tallied 285 passing yards and 6 touchdowns. For those of you at home, that is 21.92 yards per completion. All he had to do was get the ball in the air and his receivers took care of the rest. The Ballers scored two full-field touchdowns, including a 3-yard hitch to Corey Edington, who turned on the jets and took it to the house. The receivers showed a form of speed that could set them at the top of the division, if they can keep it up.

Evan Ostertag had 4 receptions for 76 yards and 2 touchdowns, while Corey Edington to took both of his receptions to the house. Tim Brunn also got in on the action, scoring two touchdowns and 56 yards. With three receivers scoring multiple touchdowns, this offense is looking to be a dangerous in a crowded Rec-B division. Lovelace was picking apart the defense with ease. His ability to hit the deep ball, matched with his scramble speed is sure to make him a threat each game.

The defense also enjoyed a stellar night, holding Don Moorman, the opposing quarterback, to a 35.48% completion rate. They also snatched two interceptions, scoring touchdowns off of both turnovers. The Wolves managed to fight back, however, scoring a quick two scores after being down 42-12. But, they had no answer for the Baller's offense, giving up a late, full-length score to Edington to put the game on ice. If this game offered us any insight on the season, it was that the Ballers can score with ease from anywhere on the field.
