Anaheim, Ca- Arizona Ratters (4-1) come through with strong performance on the road over LA Kiss (0-5) 68-30. It was a decent outing for backup quarterback Brian Zbydniewski who completed 50% of his passes with 4 touchdowns and 170 yards. The offense and defense just need that last little click to get in win column.
On offense captain Donovan Morgan made the big plays he is accustom to making with 3 touchdowns with 171 yards receiving. That brings Morgan touchdown on the season to 13 total. So even with starting quarterback Adrian McPherson down with some type foot injury Morgan remained a focal point in offense. Lined up on in slot at times is Tom Gilson who helped with a receiving touchdown of his own in 3rd quarter to make score 30-48.
Arizona picked up free agent return specialist AJ Cruz who had given Kiss great field position last year. This season Cruz is doing that for the Rattlers, with tonight having 4 returns for 75 yards. As a result of Cruz the Rattlers had an average starting field position of 18 yard line or better. In arena ball on a 25 yard field that is outstanding.
On defense Carlton Brown had 8 solo tackles for the Kiss, and interception that he returned for 9 yards to give his team an add boost. Fellow defensive back, return man, & long snapper contributed with 5 solo tackles. But it was enough to keep Arizona quarterback off his feet, while he found his wide receivers seven times in the end zone.
Head Coach Bob McMillen has to find a way to bring his old winning ways to the LA Kiss soon so they can have an opportunity this season to turn the tables and find away to post season. Now in their second season they know what mistakes not to make as move forward into second quarter of this 2015 season. The Kiss will travel to Las Vegas for their next game against Las Vegas Outlaws who they have faced once this season already. Monday night May 4th LA Kiss face Las Vegas Outlaws, looking for that elusive first win.
