The Skyhawks upsets the Horsemen 60-39
Wenatchee WA - Last night at the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee, WA, the Wenatchee Valley Skyhawks put on an unexpected show as they hosted the (5-2) Idaho Horsemen. After the Horsemen, took their initial drive in for a leading touchdown, it was all Skyhawks after that. The Skyhawks were able to capitalize on multiple penalty calls and busted coverages by the Horsemen. The game was a tale of two teams. The Skyhawks coming into the game as the underdog, with a change at quarterback and a few missing key players, showed up as a cohesive unit and appeared to be burning on all cylinders. As for the Horsemen, who did lose a few players to injury prior to this game, showed up flat and out of sync on both sides of the ball. Although there was a slight spark of a Horsemen comeback, the Skyhawks refuse to stay off the scoreboard and kept the Horsemen out of reach. The final score was 60-39 Skyhawks. With the win, the Skyhawks practically lock in a spot in the post-season.
