1965 Week 3
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-64WR1b5EfZU/YUz6Q-nNfbI/AAAAAAAAECA/-En_MoS0Oj8sKX7Bzvda5E4GECOxWSnZgCLcBGAsYHQ/s800/1965%2BWeek%2B3.png

Indiana Victors - 38, London Tigers - 28 - Victory Stadium - July 9, 1965 - 7 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
0-7 LDN - RTD RB Austin Andrews
7-7 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> TE Emmanuel Hines
7-14 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Max Sutton
10-14 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
2nd Q
17-14 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Orlando Barrack
24-14 IND - RTD RB Cody Barnes
3rd Q
24-21 LDN - RTD RB Austin Andrews
4th Q
31-21 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Ed Edwards
31-28 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Russell Wilcox
38-28 IND - RTD RB Raymond Green

Indiana decided to make a change at QB after a pair of lacklustre offensive performances with Tom Applewhite under center, and it paid off with QB Lyle Painter throwing 3 touchdowns in an upset win over the unbeaten Tigers.
Painter was on a mission to prove himself and played one of the best games of his career.
London was in it till the end, but a late interception from DB Kelly Kirkland would spoil the comeback attempt and set up a RB Raymond Green touchdown run to seal the deal. 

Pittsburgh Blacksmiths - 18, Toronto Steelheads - 14 - Riverfront Stadium of Pittsburgh - July 10, 1965 - 12 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 PIT - FG K Al Highlander
2nd Q
3-7 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Edmund Landry
10-7 PIT - PTD QB Buck Murphy -> WR Jack Duncan
3rd Q
10-14 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy
11-14 PIT - Single K Al Highlander
4th Q
18-14 PIT - RTD RB Stavros Black

The Blacksmiths came through with their second straight win taking down the other unbeaten team a day after Indiana beat London.
Toronto had a strong performance, but their offence could not get points in the final quarter. 
Pittsburgh is quickly starting to work together well and has seen a massive improvement from the opening weeks of the season and might be able to make a run at the playoffs if they continue this trend.

Louisville Thunder - 27, Montreal Rouge - 24 - Thunder Stadium - July 10, 1965 - 3:30 PM - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
10-0 LOU - RTD RB Rodney Clark
2nd Q
10-7 MTL - RTD RB Scott Mallard-White
13-7 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
3rd Q
20-7 LOU - DTD INT DB Oliver Langstrom
20-10 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
4th Q
20-17 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis
20-24 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Derek Cross
27-24 LOU - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> WR Sammy Moss

It was another unfortunate loss for the Rouge who fell short again, this time to the Thunder who seemed to have found themselves in a better position after a tough week 2.
Bishop still had a strong day with a pair of passing touchdowns in the loss, but he is still frustrated considering the defence had a blown coverage the resulted in the last touchdown for Louisville.
QB Leonidas Dumont looked his best so far this season in the win, but still made some mistakes like the interception thrown to S Garet deVale.
Louisville’s own defence certainly helped with DB Oliver Langstrom bringing back a pick and the front seven being a little more consistent.

Halifax Mariners - 35, Providence Gold Stars - 20 - Atlantic Stadium - July 10, 1965 - 7 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 HFX - PTD QB Michael Benedict -> WR Joshua Lafleur
7-3 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
14-3 HFX - PTD QB Michael Benedict -> WR Shane Steadman
2nd Q
14-10 PRO - RTD RB Rashed Smith
3rd Q
21-10 HFX - RTD RB Ronald O’Sullivan
21-13 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
4th Q
28-13 HFX - DTD FUM DL Pat Butler
35-13 HFX - RTD RB Ronald O’Sullivan
35-20 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Owen Paisley

The Mariners showed off a bit of their offensive potential with Benedict throwing a pair of touchdowns in the first half, and RB Ronald O’Sullivan scoring a pair of his own in the second half.
They also had help from the defence with DL Wayne Baxton knocking the ball out of the arms of QB Connor O’Rourke before DL Pat Butler picked it up and scored.
The Gold Stars’ offence continued to struggle but showed more promise than in previous weeks, but it is still a work in progress with the new system.

Ottawa Royals - 15, Buffalo Blue Wings - 27 - Royals Stadium at Brewer Park - July 11, 1965 - 1 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
3-3 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
2nd Q
6-3 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
6-10 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
3rd Q
6-17 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake
9-17 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
9-20 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
4th Q
15-20 OTT - PTD QB Lee Rogers -> WR Marshall Leonard
15-27 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden

The Blue Wings bounced back from their loss from the Independents with a strong win in Ottawa.
The Royals kept themselves in the game, but they still were not able to get over the hump this season joining Providence at 0-3.
DL William Sanderson and DL Lonnie Vincent both created a lot of trouble for the Royals especially on the ground with their relentless pressure, showing just how difficult the duo could be this season. 

Boston Independents - 16, Long Island Raiders - 10 - Richardson Stadium - July 11, 1965 - 4 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
0-7 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
2nd Q
3-7 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
10-7 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Evan Clanton
3rd Q
16-7 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Alexei Dubois
4th Q
16-10 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher

Boston pulled off a strong win over the defensive powerhouse of the Raiders on the back of a pair of passing touchdowns from Braddock. 
The Raiders’ defence was still strong, but Boston was able to continue to convert on plays to keep drives alive throughout the game that ultimately made the difference.
As good as their defence was the Raider offence was just not up to par and could not get past a solid performing Boston defence.

Halifax Mariners - 34, London Tigers - 25 - Atlantic Stadium - July 16, 1965 - 7 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 HFX - PTD QB Michael Benedict -> WR Shane Steadman
7-3 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
10-3 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
2nd Q
10-10 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Dwayne Alexander
17-10 HFX - RTD RB Ronald O’Sullivan
24-10 HFX - PTD QB Michael Benedict -> WR Jav Kerrigan
24-13 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
3rd Q
24-19 LDN - RTD RB Austin Andrews
24-22 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
27-22 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
4th Q
27-25 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
34-25 HFX - PTD QB Michael Benedict -> WR Shane Steadman

The Mariners would come through with their 3rd straight win, taking down the Tigers who ended up losing 4 players throughout the game. 
QB Michael Benedict continued to look comfortable in the starting role throwing 3 touchdowns in the win, however, he still made a couple of mistakes, throwing picks to DB Jackson Miles and DB Bob Ellis. 
Halifax’s defence did bail out the young QB stalling the Tigers out for only a field goal on both interceptions. 

Long Island Raiders - 20, Indiana Victors - 10 - Long Island Stadium - July 17, 1965 - 12 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
2nd Q
10-0 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
3rd Q
13-0 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
13-3 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
4th Q
13-10 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Silas Peyton
20-10 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields

The Raiders bounced back in their home-opener (finally), with a strong defensive win over the Victors. 
LB William Washington II was a star for the Raiders with a forced fumble and 12 Tackles. 
RB Dareion Fields continued to do what he does best with a pair of touchdowns on the ground.
QB Lyle Painter was not quite as impressive as his 3-touchdown game from week 3, he threw a couple of interceptions, but still almost got the Victors back into the game, before they had sealed it late.

Providence Gold Stars - 9, Ottawa Royals - 28 - New Providence Stadium - July 17, 1965 - 3:30 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
0-7 OTT - RTD RB Corbyn Knight
2nd Q
3-7 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
3-14 OTT - PTD QB Lee Rogers -> WR Marshall Leonard
3rd Q
3-21 OTT - RTD RB Wally Morton
6-21 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
4th Q
9-21 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
9-28 OTT - PTD QB Lee Rogers -> WR Carter Henderson

The Gold Stars looked terrible once again on defence with continuous mishaps and terrible play-calling and execution.
At this point, after only scoring 51 points in 4 games (average of 12.75 a game), the fans of Providence are calling for someone’s head and it is very likely going to come in the form of the coaching staff.
Ottawa had a strong performance with OC Jean Matieau and HC Joseph Curry out doing the Gold Stars’ strategy, with QB Lee Rogers leading the way.

Buffalo Blue Wings - 40, Louisville Thunder - 22 - Milton Charles Stadium - July 17, 1965 - 7 PM ET - Weather:  Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake
7-3 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
10-3 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
17-3 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
2nd Q
17-6 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
20-6 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
20-9 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
3rd Q
20-12 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
27-12 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake
33-12 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
4th Q
33-19 LOU - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> TE Christopher Gist
33-22 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
40-22 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden

The Blue Wings powered through and took down the Thunder in a dominant fashion on the back of RB Jimmy Golden taking in 3 touchdowns in the game including a 43-yard run to seal the game.
Louisville was unable to close out drives throughout the game and fell far behind quickly. 
The Blue Wings D-line was back to full health as well and made things tough on the Thunder throughout the game with 4 sacks combined, which often stalled out Thunder drives. 

Toronto Steelheads - 19, Boston Independents - 14 - Anderson Stadium - July 18, 1965 - 1 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy
10-0 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
2nd Q
10-7 BOS - RTD RB Kendall Morgan
3rd Q
10-14 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Evan Clanton
4th Q
16-14 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Sam Nash
19-14 TOR - FG K Bob Randall

The Steelheads bounced back from their loss to the Blacksmiths with a strong win over the Boston Independents.
Boston was unable to make a 4th quarter comeback this time around on a LB Rusty McVee forced fumble on WR Alexei Dubois in the redzone that saved a sure touchdown.
The Toronto coaching staff seems to be continuing to take the somewhat underskilled Steelheads team and keeps pushing them to victories and they could easily make the push for the playoffs at this rate.

Montreal Rouge - 42, Pittsburgh Blacksmiths - 15 - Mount Royal Stadium - July 18, 1965 - 4 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
0-3 PIT - FG K Al Highlander
7-3 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis
7-6 PIT - FG K Al Highlander
2nd Q
14-6 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Derek Cross
14-7 PIT - Single K Al Highlander
21-7 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Yahui Sun
3rd Q
21-14 PIT - RTD RB Stavros Black
28-14 MTL - RTD RB Scott Mallard-White
28-15 PIT - Single K Al Highlander
35-15 MTL - DTD INT S Garet deVale
4th Q
42-15 MTL - RTD RB Hugo Hughes

The Rouge were desperate to get back to winning after back-to-back losses, and they would dismantle the Blacksmiths in a 42-15 win.
QB Gene Bishop was on a mission hitting all 3 of his top WRs for a touchdown each, including Yahui Sun’s first. 
S Garet deVale had a field day with QB Buck Murphy, knocking down 3 passes and coming down with 2 picks including one that he returned for a touchdown.
Pittsburgh was still managing to move the ball, but it was a rough day overall, in fact, the team did let QB Mike Key get some snaps as well in the final quarter.

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

I am so happy to see Montreal get back to winning, especially with a big win. Buffalo winning is also great, and it shows why they are the defending champs.

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

Atta boy Garet! Always love to see my players doing well (even if here it comes against another of my players, Buck Murphy). I'm thinking Providence should start to consider punting the season at this point.

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

1965 Week 5

BREAKING NEWS - GOLD STARS FIRE HEAD COACH AND OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR
After a shocking 0-4 start, the Gold Stars have decided to make some changes and have fired Head Coach Harry Meadows and Offensive Coordinator Jack Dorsey. Meadows had been the head coach since 1959, after moving over from the defensive coordinator role with the Royals. He had always seemed a bit shaky in the role but was able to maintain some success which did include a trip to the McCallister Cup in 1963. However, at this point, they had enough and decided to make a change. Going along with him is OC Jack Dorsey who had only been hired for the role this offseason, however, the abysmal offence has the team easily willing to move on from Dorsey. 

To replace the two members of the staff, the team has hired former Boston defensive coordinator Carroll Moss as the interim head coach. Moss had been with the Independents for 5 seasons and won a title, and seems like a good fit for at least this season. For OC the team decided to go to an old reliable and hired Dean Parrish as the offensive coordinator. Parrish was once the Gold Stars’ OC from 1956-1958, before being promoted to HC after Roy Aguirre had been let go. He also spent 4 years with the Athletics as their head coach between 1959-1962. Hopefully, the two can turn things around for the Gold Stars who were certainly hoping to be a lot closer to the playoffs this season.

Indiana Victors - 26, Montreal Rouge - 21 - Victory Stadium - July 22, 1965 - 7 PM ET - TNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy

20-21 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
26-21 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Silas Peyton

The Victors came through with another big win while the Rouge continue to struggle on the road. 
QB Lyle Painter had another solid game with 3 passing touchdowns in the win, outdoing the league leader in Bishop who only had one thrown on the day.
Bishop still had a strong game including taking in his own touchdown to help Montreal take a lead in the 4th.

Ottawa Royals - 33, Louisville Thunder - 27 - Royals Stadium at Brewer Park - July 23, 1965 - 7 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Cloudy

26-21 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
33-21 OTT - RTD RB Corbyn Knight
33-27 LOU - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> WR Sammy Moss

The Royals came away with their second straight win over the Thunder.
QB Lee Rogers had a great 1st quarter before the offence fell into a rhythm with field goals throughout the rest of the game.
Louisville did manage to pull themselves back into the game in the second half but it was not enough to catch the Royals in the end. 
DB Jerome Caldwell continued to show improvement in his second season reeling in his 3rd interception of the season.

London Tigers - 20, Long Island Raiders - 18 - Western Fair Stadium - July 24, 1965 - 3 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy

0-3 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher

17-11 LI - Single K Henderson Schumacher
4th Q
17-18 LI - PTD QB Stanley Troyer -> WR Casey Coleman
20-18 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth

The Tigers got back to winning on a last-second field goal to improve to 3-2. 
The Raiders’ defence was tough throughout, but QB Riley Kiernan would not be denied in the 2-minute drill.
The Raiders did get a late score on only the second passing touchdown of the season for QB Stanley Troyer. 
DB Jackson Miles did have a chance to shine coming down with an unreal interception on a pass intended for Raiders’ WR Larry Mossholder.

Pittsburgh Blacksmiths - 24, Boston Independents - 30 - Riverfront Stadium of Pittsburgh - July 24, 1965 - 7 PM ET - SNF - Weather: Cloudy/Light Showers
1st Q
7-0 PIT - RTD RB Stavros Black
7-3 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
7-6 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
2nd Q
7-13 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Alexei Dubois
14-13 PIT - RTD RB Stavros Black
14-16 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
3rd Q
21-16 PIT - PTD QB Buck Murphy -> WR Wilson Queensgate
21-23 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Evan Clanton
4th Q
24-23 PIT - FG K Al Highlander
24-30 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Alexei Dubois

Pittsburgh recovered from their beatdown against Montreal last week to put up a competitive threat against the Independents, however, QB Nathaniel Braddock was not letting the Independents completely slip and would find the endzone in the 4th to get the win.
RB Stavros Black continues to be the center-piece of the Blacksmiths’ offence with a pair of touchdowns on the day.
DL Timmy Kerr did get the best of Stavros Black once with a forced fumble on the day.
WR Alexei Dubois finally showing up a little more with his best game as an Independent which included the game-winner.

Providence Gold Stars - 8, Toronto Steelheads - 24 - New Providence Stadium - July 25, 1965 - 1 PM ET - Weather: Mostly Cloudy
1st Q
0-7 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy
2nd Q
0-14 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Edmund Landry
3rd Q
0-17 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
0-24 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy
4th Q
6-24 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Cedric Peterson
8-24 PRO - 2PT QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Owen Paisley

The coaching change in Providence certainly got off to a slow start, however, it isn’t surprising considering the mid-week change. 
The 4th quarter did show some promise, but it certainly may take an extra week to get comfortable.
Toronto on the other hand continued to look good with their strong coaching staff combined with a great performance from RB Max Tracy leading to the team’s 4th win of the season.

The Blue Wings looked to solidify their spot at the top of the NAAF with a big win over the Mariners.
It was a defensive battle overall with both teams being able to stall out the other and force many field goals instead of touchdowns.
Buffalo overall controlled the game and sealed it with a QB Charles Lemieux touchdown to WR Zachariah Pembroke.

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

Clearly a change was needed in Providence. Hopefully the team can get in the win column next week with the coaching staff more comfortable.

1965 Week 6
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ornXlXJnrL0/YVDx8H3DJEI/AAAAAAAAEDA/4_H3fpIcf-IvJirsECk5HXMfEJp0L9_ogCLcBGAsYHQ/s800/1965%2BWeek%2B6.png

Long Island Raiders - 20, Halifax Mariners - 5 - Long Island Stadium - July 30, 1965 - 7 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
3-2 HFX - Safety DL Wayne Baxton
2nd Q
10-2 LI - PTD QB Stanley Troyer -> WR Casey Coleman
3rd Q
13-2 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
13-5 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
4th Q
20-5 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields

The Raiders’ defence came up big with a stellar performance against the Mariners keeping the team at only 5 points (3 offensively) all game.
LB William Washington II had a strong day with 11 tackles and a forced fumble, and DB Rutherford Winters and DB Alexander Bradley both came down with an interception.
Halifax’s offence could not move the ball and continuously ran into mistakes and great pressure from the Raider defence which did lead to 4 sacks on the day.

Toronto Steelheads - 32, Pittsburgh Blacksmiths - 23 - Anderson Stadium - July 31, 1965 - 12 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy
10-0 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
10-3 FG K Al Highlander
2nd Q
17-3 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Samuel Petri
17-9 PIT - RTD RB Stavros Black
3rd Q
24-9 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Edmund Landry
24-16 PIT - PTD QB Buck Murphy -> WR Ben Roland
4th Q
25-16 TOR - Single K Bob Randall
25-23 PIT - PTD QB Buck Murphy -> WR Jack Duncan
32-23 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy

The Steelheads got revenge on the Blacksmiths in the rematch from their week 3 matchup; the win gives the Steelheads their 3rd straight win.
QB Todd Baker and RB Max Tracy continued to roll on and show that the duo seems to be taking the Steelheads to the next level leaving the team at 5-1 through 6 games.
Pittsburgh certainly didn’t have a bad game as a pair of passing touchdowns from QB Buck Murphy kept it close until Tracy sealed the game late in the 4th.

Louisville Thunder - 13, Indiana Victors - 20 - Thunder Stadium - July 31, 1965 - 3:30 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
3-3 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
2nd Q
10-3 LOU - RTD RB Rodney Clark
3rd Q
10-10 IND - RTD RB Raymond Green
10-17 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Ed Edwards
13-17 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
4th Q
13-20 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter

The struggles continued for the Thunder while the Victors continued to find their footing. 
Louisville looked in control in the first half, especially with their defence coming up with a pair of turnovers from DB Oliver Langstrom and S Johnny Berger.
In the second half, it ended up being Indiana who started to come back with a pair of touchdowns in the 3rd to take a lead.
Louisville’s offence sputtered in the second half with the Victors’ defence stepping up to take control of the game.

Boston Independents - 30, Providence Gold Stars - 13 - Richardson Stadium - July 31, 1965 - 7 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
10-0 BOS - RTD RB Kendall Morgan
2nd Q
10-3 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
13-3 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
3rd Q
20-3 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Evan Clanton
20-6 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
4th Q
20-13 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Cedric Peterson
27-13 BOS - RTD RB Kendall Morgan
30-13 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg

It seems like the Gold Stars still have a lot of things to figure out as they fell once again to drop to 0-6.
Boston certainly knew how to handle the Gold Stars in this win with what looked to be a dominant win for the team.
RB Kendall Morgan got a chance to shine more in this one with a pair of touchdowns and 86 yards on the ground.
DB Neville Falkner almost had a pick taken back to the endzone but was stopped by WR Alexei Dubois before he got there.

Montreal Rouge - 24, Ottawa Royals - 26 - Mount Royal Stadium - August 1, 1965 - 1 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
0-3 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
0-10 OTT - KRTD WR Colby Bancana
2nd Q
7-10 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis
7-13 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
3rd Q
14-13 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis
14-16 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
14-23 OTT - PTD QB Lee Rogers -> WR Colby Bancana
4th Q
21-23 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Yahui Sun
24-23 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
24-26 OTT - FG K Ira Foster

The Rouge-Royals rivalry saw another classic with the Royals pulling off the surprising upset on a last-second field goal from Ira Foster.
The Royals did jump out to a couple of leads off of a great game from 2nd-year WR Colby Bancana who took home a punt return for a score and then stepped up for the injured WR Mackenzie Jones and scored again.
The Rouge were able to rebound and take 2-point leads twice, but they could not stay ahead in the end.

Buffalo Blue Wings - 33, London Tigers - 30 - Milton Charles Stadium - August 1, 1965 - 4 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Zachariah Pembroke
7-7 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Max Sutton
14-7 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake
14-10 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
2nd Q
21-10 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
21-13 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
24-13 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
3rd Q
24-16 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
24-22 LDN - RTD RB Austin Andrews
4th Q
30-22 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
30-28 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Dwayne Alexander
30-30 LDN - 2PT QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Max Sutton
33-30 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch

The Blue Wings and Tigers made a great encore for the Royals-Rouge matchup with another game that came down to a field goal at the end. 
An eventful game early on quieted down, but slowly London managed to inch back into the game.
Buffalo had the chance to ice the game, but K Ryan Perch missed the point-after which allowed the Tigers to tie the game up.
Perch was able to redeem himself by the end of the game with the game-winning kick to give Buffalo their 5th win of the season.
