New Orleans Regains #1 Position in MLR Standings
As Mardi Gras was in full force, the boys in Gold traveled to Salt Lake City over the weekend to battle the Utah Warriors in the snow. Weather at kickoff was 32 degrees with snow flurries for the entire first half. The Warriors were hailed as having the second ranked defense in MLR and it showed holding the Gold's number one offense to only 21 points. With multiple lead changes and no team able to pull away, the Gold ceased the win on Nick Feakes' third try of the night in the last minute of the game.
