Wranglers Beat Blaze in Tight One, 65-64

The Austin Wranglers stopped their four-game losing streak Friday with a close finish against the Utah Blaze. QB Adrian McPherson threw for 271 yards and six touchdowns. He also ran one across the goal line from 17 yards out, securing his title as offensive player of the week. WR Derrick Lewis pulled in an onside kick and three of those TD passes, while WR Anthony Hines grabbed two, including the 17-yard game-winner with less than 12 seconds left on the clock. Utah missed a 46-yard field-goal attempt in the last two seconds of the game. This win puts the Wranglers at 2-4 this season. The Wranglers head to Columbus, Ohio, Saturday to take on the 2-3 Destroyers and return to the Frank Erwin Center to play the New Orleans VooDoo Saturday, April 21.
