Last Night HR Bio Protect Field at the Allen Event Center was ground zero for the Texas Revolution’s highest offensive showing in team history. The Revs controlled the game from the outset, winning the coin toss and then never letting their foot off the gas. In the 92-43 rout of their crosstown rivals, the Mesquite Marshals, Quarterback Robert Kent. Jr. threw six touchdown passes and completed 13 of his 21 attempts. Wide Receivers Clinton Solomon, LaDon Hudson, and Brett Reece each scored multiple touchdowns, combining for 193 of the Revolutions 269 receiving yards. Kent did not play in the second half. Instead, Quarterback Kewan Dewberry stepped in. Dewberry completed six of his 14 attempts, for two touchdowns and one interception.
The fact that the Revolution possessed such a commanding lead throughout the game allowed players like Defensive End, Robert Williams and Running Back Darius Fudge to show off their versatility. Williams showed off some of his offensive ability by catching a 10 yard touchdown pass in the 2nd quarter. Williams now has four career receptions, three of which have gone for touchdowns.Fudge, on the other hand, completed a 5 yard touchdown pass to Brett Reece with 18 seconds remaining in regulation, his second touchdown pass of the season.
The Revolution secondary shone brightly throughout the night. Defensive Back, Jerico Nelson finished the game with 11 total tackles and an interception, while rookie Anthony Webb hauled in his league leading 7th interception of the season. The superb secondary play was made possible by the constant pressure that was put on Marshals Quarterback, Kolton Browning. The pressure was primarily applied by Williams and Linebacker, Trae Ivory, who were teams second and third leading tacklers on the night.
The biggest takeaway from the game was seeing the Revolution play their most complete game of the season. With only 1 game left before playoff rosters are set, the final 24 men heading into the playoffs are close to being finalized. Look for the imminent return of star DB Frankie Solomon, Jr. prior to the final game of the season against the Marshals. On both sides of the ball, they showed that they have immense talent. More importantly, they showed the rest of CIF that they are not to be taken lightly headed into the playoffs.
With a loss by the Dodge City Law tonight, or a win by the Revs in either of their final 2 games the Revolution will clinch a first round bye, and host a 2nd round playoff game on June 18th. Playoff tickets will be available starting this week, so call 972-422-7277 for ticket information.
