Lone Stars Get Stampeded
San Angelo- The Lubbock Lone Stars are still looking for their first win over an IFL team that is not from El Paso. The Lone Stars got ran over by the San Angelo Stampede Saturday night by a score of 55 to 41.
The game was neck and neck at the half with the Lone Stars trailing by one 27-26. But in the second half the Stampede let their NFL running back out of the corral. Mike Green who played three seasons in the NFL for the Tennessee Titans, score three touchdowns and seemed unstoppable.
The Lone Stars did not get great play out of any position including the Quarterback. Tommy Miller looked great in the first half, but finished the game throwing 22 completions on 42 attempts for 190 yards and 4 touchdowns. At the half Tommy had 150 yards through the air and 3 touchdowns, but after the intermission lead the team to only one score, and had a couple of 4 and out possessions.
Anton Paige looked unstoppable with his 6 foot 5 inch frame dwarfing the Stampede cornerbacks. He finished with 12 receptions for 125 yards and 2 touchdowns, and was the one of the only Lone Stars that left the field on a positive note.
Coach Buck was not happy with his teams performance and said he was most disturbed by the Passing and kicking game.
The Lone Stars will try to regroup for their second home game of the season, rematch with the hated Amarillo Dusters. That game will kickoff Saturday at the Lubbock Coliseum at 7:05 Saturday.
