Sharks Run Away with a Huge Win Over the Orlando Predators 61-7
The Reuniting of a Rivalry took over 2 years to set up and in 4 quarters the Jacksonville Sharks showed the National Arena League that they were for REAL this year and the Orlando Predators weren’t ready! Thanks to Mark Miller for hanging out with My9oh4 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena keeping our Arena Football fans #LockedIN.
The Jacksonville Sharks (4-1) devastated their rival, Orlando Predators, Military Appreciation Night, brought to you by Ocean Grove RV. The Sharks were introduced to their Red, White, and Black camouflage jerseys tonight and did not disappoint against the Orlando Predators (1-5), finishing on a high-scoring 61-7 beat down.
Sharks quarterback, Jonathan Bane, played a lights-out until he went down right before the half. He was 12-of-19 for 142 yards and four touchdowns before leaving the game. Quarterback, Mike Fafaul was thrown into the battle but held the Sharks together going 7-of-13 for 101 yards and one touchdown. Devin Wilson continues to lead the team totaling eight receptions for 111 yards and three touchdowns. Fortson had another great game at home hauling in four receptions for 75 yards and one touchdown, along with a fumble recovery for 23 yards creating a touchdown.
Jacksonville can credit another win to their dominant Shark defense that showcased their best game this season holding the Predators to a record low seven points. Jacksonville on special teams, kicker, Brandon Behr, was 5-of-6 on PAT’s and tied his personal record with three deuces. Returning to the rivalry, the Sharks proved to show a rude awakening to the revived Orlando Predators. The Sharks will enter a bye week before hitting the road to face Orlando again Saturday, June 1st at the Amway Center. The Sharks, now 4-1, are tied for first place in the NAL and are currently on a four-game win streak after this 61-7 victory.
