Ravens Victims of Blitz Defensive Perfection
The Bellingham Blitz faced off against the Western Washington Football Alliance league leaders, the Renton Ravens, and proved that the Blitz are the best team with a victory Saturday June, 11 at Mount Vernon High School. The stage was set for a battle between two titans of minor league football. The teams were no strangers to each other, waging war several times in the past. The Blitz struck first with an opening drive for a touchdown followed by several scores from turnovers caused by an oppressive defense. Five turnovers in the first quarter by the Ravens turned into 24 straight points for the Blitz, deflating any confidence the Ravens may have had at the start of the game. Renton's offense did not cross mid-field once the entire first half. Momentum did not change after halftime. The Blitz kept up their assault and unleashed the tandem of quarterbacks Leon Lilly and Cody Oakes, playing wide receiver, on the Ravens. The QBs connected for two touchdowns and 84 yards. While the Blitz defense brutalized the Ravens offense with their second straight shutout. Final score 70-0. Click here to view photos of the game.
