Wolves Fall To 5-10, Lose At Albany, 54-47
Albany WR/DB Cy Butler's nine-yard TD run with 30 seconds left in the game lifted the Albany Conquest to a 54-47 victory over the Manchester Wolves Friday night at Pepsi Arena in Albany, N.Y. in front of 6,862 fans. In a game that had eight lead changes, including seven in the second half, Manchester (5-10) took a 47-44 lead on a Mel Long 22-yard TD reception from QB Chris Sanders with 5:53 left in the game. Sanders finished 21-of-40 passing for 306 yards with four TD passes and one interception. Albany (6-9) tied the game at 47-47 on Vinny Cirrincione's second field goal of the game, this one a 26-yard boot with 1:38 left in regulation. Manchester got the ball on their three-yard line on the ensuing kickoff, but their drive stalled on downs at their own nine-yard line. Butler also caught three passes for 35 yards with one TD reception. Albany's Tony Locke caught a season-high 10 passes for 170 yards with four TD receptions of 19,45, 40, and ten yards.
