Battlehawks quarterback AJ McCarron had an impressive performance, completing 23 of 29 passes for 236 yards, averaging 8.1 yards per completion, and throwing three touchdowns with no interceptions. His counterpart on the Vipers, Brett Hundley, struggled, completing only 9 of 18 passes for 120 yards and one touchdown, while Luis Perez threw two interceptions.

The Battlehawks’ ground game also proved effective, with Brian Hill leading the team with 71 yards on 14 carries, and Kareem Walker rushing for a touchdown. Vegas’ rushing attack, on the other hand, was stifled by the Battlehawks’ defense, which limited the Vipers to just 43 yards on 13 attempts.

Darrius Shepherd was McCarron’s favorite target, hauling in 7 catches for 79 yards and two touchdowns. George Campbell and Hakeem Butler contributed as well, with Campbell adding 54 yards and Butler securing 36 yards. On the Vipers’ side, John Lovett had 44 receiving yards and the team’s lone touchdown.

St. Louis’ defense played a crucial role in the victory, tallying four sacks and six tackles for loss, along with two interceptions by Lavert Hill. The Vipers’ defense managed three sacks and five tackles for loss, but could not force any turnovers.

Special teams were also in favor of the Battlehawks, with Donny Hageman hitting a 40-yard field goal and Austin Proehl returning three punts for a total of 22 yards. The Vipers’ special teams were unable to make an impact, with no field goals and minimal yardage on punt returns.

With this victory, the St. Louis Battlehawks improve to 4-2 and look to continue their winning ways, while the Vegas Vipers slump to 1-5 and will need to regroup if they hope to turn their season around.
