Florida Tarpons Host Undefeated Atlanta Havoc Saturday

April 20, 2018 - American Arena League (AAL) - Florida Tarpons News Release

LAKELAND, Fla. - The Florida Tarpons will look to pick up their first win of the 2018 season Saturday night at the RP Funding Center, but will have to take down another undefeated team in order to do so.

The Tarpons will host the Atlanta Havoc, who defeated Florida in Georgia back on March 17 in the season opener for both teams. The Tarpons led in the first quarter, but did not score in the final two quarters to fall 48-21.

Last week, the Tarpons took on the Richmond Roughriders, and again had a first- quarter lead before dropping a 58-20 decision. Richmond has not lost a game in their two years of arena football.

Florida's pedigree is strong too, however, with five championship game appearances in their six year history.

Against the Havoc, Florida quarterback Chris Wallace had three TD throws, including two to Justin Hilton, who also had a pair in last week's loss to Richmond.

This is the second of four-straight at home for the Tarpons, with their next game on Sunday, May 6 against the Austin Wild, who fell last week to Atlanta by a score of 66-0.

Tickets for all Tarpons games are available at the RP Funding Center Box Office, or by calling 863-834-8111. Saturday night's game will also be broadcast live on YouTube.
