Wranglers Slay Dragons, Wrangle Up a Win, et al.

The Austin Wranglers broke a four-game losing streak this weekend, pulling up to a let's-face-it-still-pretty-horrible 4-9 standing. The season's been rough for the Wranglers, who have a rookie head coach and dropped their starting quarterback midseason. The Wranglers defeated the New York Dragons 82-54 setting a franchise high for points scored. New QB Lang Campbell finally looked like starter material, completing 19 out of 30 passes for 250 yards with no interceptions. This was Campbell's first win in five games and the Wranglers first road win all season. Unfortunately, probably no Austinites were there to see it in person, because I'm betting not even the most loyal Mangler hopped on a plane to Uniondale, N.Y., to see the team fight to delay being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. The always-amazing Derrick Lewis did his part scoring a personal record of five touchdowns. The Wranglers play at home against the Georgia Force Saturday, June 9, 7:30pm at the Erwin Center, 1701 Red River. Call 339-3939 for tickets or go to www.austinwranglers.com for more info.
