Thomas Dover’s strip sack and fumble recovery with nine seconds remaining in the fourth quarter sealed a 54-53 win for the Streets over the Predators Sunday at the Amway Center in Orlando.  With the Streets down 53-46 late in the fourth quarter, E.J. Nemeth threw a 20 yard touchdown pass to Edgar Allen Poe with 28 seconds remaining that brought New York within a point. The Streets then decided to go for the two-point conversion and Nemeth connected with Devantae Jenkins to put the Streets up by one.  

With the win in “The Jungle”, the Streets improve to 3-1 and they pull even with the Carolina Cobras and the Jacksonville Sharks for the top spot in the National Arena League while the Predators drop to 1-4.

The Streets will have a bye this week and will return to action on Monday May 27th when they host the Massachusetts Pirates at the Westchester County Center.  Kickoff for this Memorial Day matinee will be at 3pm and tickets are available at www.ticketmaster.com.  For season and group ticket information, call 1-833-697-8733 and choose extension one.
