The Capital City Fury lost to the visiting South Beach Outlaws 7-0 Saturday afternoon in what can only be described as a battle of two stingy defenses. It was a cloudy and stormy afternoon at San Juan High School out in Citrus Heights. The undefeated Fury played host to the visiting Outlaws who also entered the game with a 2-0 record. This was going to be a dogfight on MacArthur Field for not only a chance to lead the Pacific Coast Football League but leave with a 3-0 record. The Outlaws defeated the Solano Chiefs 60-0 last week whilst the Fury downed the Rhinos 27-14.
As the teams took to the field, a steady rain came down and this would play a factor throughout the game. Instead of a spread out high flying offensive of the Fury and Outlaws, both teams would play old school smash mouth football that consisted of "ground and pound". Neither side could effectively stretch the field for long periods of time and both sides had their fair share of turnovers. Fury's quarterback Logan Hollis had a tough game but kept his team in the game until the final seconds. The defense of the Outlaws shut down the Fury's offense and kept them from scoring. On the other hand, the Fury's defense limited the Outlaws' offense by frustrating both of their quarterbacks and preventing what easily could have been a blowout by continuing to play tough in the face of adversity.
Despite the lost, the Capital City Fury played a really tough game that unfortunately didn't go their way. The Fury (2-1) will play host next Saturday against the Tri-City Bulls (0-2). Tickets for the game are just $5 for adults. For more information please visit http://www.capitalcityfury.com and to learn about the Pacific Coast Football League please visit http://www.thepcfl.com
