Houston Stuns NOLA at Home

The Houston Sabercats (3-10, 15 points) came out firing and pulled off the 27-20 upset over the NOLA Gold on Saturday afternoon.

Sabercats flyhalf Sam Windsor opened the scoring in the third minute on a penalty goal that put Houston up 3-0.

Houston then jumped to a 10-3 lead after Windsor located a gap in NOLA's defense, scoring the game's first try in the 17th minute.

"When we went through the phases, we looked good. I think we just panicked a bit, which is uncharacteristic of our team and that kind of undid us at times. Houston came out hot and I don't think we matched them properly," Howard said.
