NEW YORK, NY – The expansion New York Streets of the National Arena League (NAL) remained undefeated with a 70-31 demolition of the expansion Orlando Predators on Saturday night at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, N.Y.
The Streets soared to a 23-0 lead at the end of the first quarter and led 44-19 at halftime. QB E.J. Nemeth (Sacred Heart) and WR Rob Jones (Delaware) led the streets on offense. Nemeth tossed seven touchdown passes and rushed for one. Five of his touchdown passes went to Jones, and one a piece to Devante Jenkins (Southern Connecticut State) and Edgar Allen Poe (Army). Kicker Billy Dean (Shippensburg) chipped in with six extra points and a two-pointer on the opening kickoff.
