The Brahmas started strong with a touchdown in the first quarter, but their momentum quickly dwindled. The Vipers took control of the game in the second quarter, scoring 11 points and taking the lead. Despite a solid effort from the Brahmas’ defense in the second half, they were unable to find their way back into the game, allowing the Vipers to secure their third win of the season.

Brahmas’ quarterback Kurt Benkert completed 22 of 31 passes for 179 yards, with an average of 5.8 yards per pass, one touchdown, and one interception. On the other hand, Vegas’ quarterback Jalan McClendon outperformed his counterpart by completing 21 of 31 passes for 264 yards, averaging 8.5 yards per pass, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

In the rushing department, the Brahmas struggled to gain any significant ground, totaling just 30 yards on 16 carries. The Vipers fared better with 90 yards on 29 carries, but their success in the passing game was the key factor in their victory.

San Antonio’s receivers put up a decent fight, with Landen Akers leading the way with six receptions for 75 yards, but they were unable to find the end zone. The Vipers’ receivers had a strong showing, with Mathew Sexton, Geronimo Allison, and Sean Price all contributing significant yardage and Price scoring a touchdown.

The Brahmas’ special teams had a mixed performance, as Fred Brown scored on a 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, but they failed to make an impact in the kicking game. The Vipers’ kicker, Bailey Giffen, contributed three points with a 39-yard field goal.

San Antonio’s defense was led by Jordan Williams, who recorded 11 tackles and three tackles for loss. However, it wasn’t enough to slow down the Vipers’ offense. Vegas’ defense was led by C.J. Avery with 10 total tackles, and Deontay Anderson made a crucial interception that helped secure their victory.

In the end, the Brahmas’ inconsistent offense and inability to make crucial plays led to their defeat. The Vegas Vipers took advantage of their opportunities and emerged victorious, improving their record to 3-5. The San Antonio Brahmas, now 2-6, must regroup and focus on improving their performance in the remaining games of the season.
