The New Orleans Breakers are still undefeated after their second United States Soccer League match, a 34-3 win over the Tampa Bay Bandits on Sunday.
Their massive win was the biggest points difference in a USFL game this season.
New Orleans scored on their first game possession. Quarterback Kyle Sloter slid the ball into the end zone for a 1 yard score to cap off an impressive 13-game, 77-yard drive.
“I run this shit!” Sloter was heard as he celebrated his touchdown run.
Sloter was dominant in his second career USFL game despite having his crotch popped. He ended the game going 25 of 39 with 266 passing yards, two touchdown passes and no interception. Running back Jordan Ellis led the Breakers with 64 yards from 21 attempts.
After the Bandits went three and eliminated, the Breakers went on a 12-game 69-yard drive. Running back TJ Logan finished it off with a 5-yard landing run. New Orleans was leading 14-0 after the first quarter.
The Bandits finally gained some momentum after the team blocked an Austin MacGinnis field goal, leading to an 11-game 77-yard drive, which was the team’s best drive of the night. While Tampa Bay failed to score a touchdown, they eventually got on the board with a 22-yard field goal from kicker Tyler Rausa.
But New Orleans responded on the next drive, when Sloter connected with wide receiver Shawn Poindexter for an 18-yard touchdown.
That drive also saw wide receiver Jonathan Adams make an incredible one-handed catch for 29 yards. It was one of Adams’ many noteworthy catches, who finished the game with five catches for 92 yards.
“Too many people shouldn’t play zero coverage on me. I’m going to get that ball … I’m always open,” Adams said during the broadcast.
The Breakers led 21-3 at half-time and did not allow the Bandits to score points for the remainder of the match.
The Breakers defense kept Tampa Bay just 97 yards away and Bandits quarterback Jordan Ta’amu was put under pressure throughout the game. New Orleans had four sacks and 10 tackles behind the scrimmage line. Ta’amu finished the match by completing 44.4% of his passes for 62 yards and an interception.
The Breakers impacted players’ play on all three levels of their defense. Notable artists included linemen Kamilo Tongamoa and Anree Saint-Amour, linebacker Jerod Fernandez, and defender Vontae Diggs.
The Bandits were led ashore by Ta’amu and BJ Emmons, who ran 39 yards in 14 attempts.
After both teams failed to score during the third quarter, the Breakers made a 10-game 55-yard drive, which was crowned with a field goal from MacGinnis to give them a 24-3 lead to start the game. fourth.
Breakers cornerback Nevelle Clark then intercepted Ta’amu on their next possession. New Orleans responded with a 4-yard landing pass from Sloter to wide catcher Johnnie Dixon. After one point more than MacGinnis, the Breakers were leading 31-3.
Seeking answers, Ta’amu was later replaced by quarterback Brady White, who didn’t provide much spark. White was intercepted by Mike Stevens in the fourth quarter and ended the match by completing just 3 out of 10 passes for 34 yards and an interception.
He was fired for ending the game.
Next week, the Bandits (1-1) will face the Houston Gamblers on Saturday, April 30 at 4 p.m. ET. The Breakers (2-0) will play the Birmingham Stallions in an undefeated match later in the day at 20:00 ET.
