ROSWELL, NM — Tale of the Tape: In what was an eliminator for both teams, the name of the game was defense as two familiar teams battled it out to stay alive in the “Show Me The Money” Division. Looney Tunes won the turnover battle 3-1 as Diere “Fresh” Franklin outplayed his contemporaries in Matt Manzanares/Romance Taylor.
In the second half of the game, Taylor would take over the reigns at the Quarterback position, which proved to be a costly mistake in the end. Taylor, BTB’s No. 1 go-to guy and anchor of one of the tournament’s top receiving corps, spent more time passing the ball instead of catching it where he is most lethal.
Jamison Heiskell was electric and virtually unstoppable as he accounted for two of the Tunes scores. On the defensive side of the ball, Brandel Webb and Christopher Clariett both accounted for key turnovers the helped propel the Tune Squad a round ahead.
