AAF Week 2 scores, highlights: Orlando tries to come back after San Antonio strikes first


Week 2 of the AAF season ends Sunday. Although no one will confuse Saturday's matches with excellent football, both games were at least decisive. More specifically, the Arizona Hotshots needed a 14-point recovery in the fourth quarter to avoid a shocking Memphis Express surprise.

Apollos returns with a game of vertical passes

Orlando could have the most exciting pass-through game of any team in the Alliance. The relationship between quarterback Garrett Gilbert and receiver Jalin Marshall has been exciting to watch and the two are already training for big games against the commanders. The shot from the center of the field, 57 yards deep, led to a shot at goal that put the Apollos within three points.

Marquise Williams takes over at QB for Commanders

Do not forget that AAF is a development league, and San Antonio coach Mike Riley literally takes that term. Riley replaced starting quarterback Logan Woodside by former North Carolina signal caller Marquise Williams in the second quarter to give Williams a few reps. While making such a change while Woodside had just directed two scoring attempts seemed counterintuitive, Riley claimed that he appreciated what he had seen from Williams at the training. And, of course, Williams showed his wheels during big maneuvers to keep the chains moving. The first San Antonio training with Williams at the bar ended in a 50-yard field goal.

Kenneth Farrow imposes for the first touchdown in San Antonio

When you are a brand new football league, scripted commands should not be taken for granted. And yet, the first offensive possession of the commanders went exactly to the scenario. San Antonio showed a remarkable balance against Orlando, closing the score with a climax and jumping by running back Kenneth Farrow. The reader had a bit of everything: some inside, some dishes outside, a small area to read. With a second touchdown at the end of the first quarter, the commanders led 12-0.
