We are live from CONSOL Energy Center as a bitter rivalry is renewed in the Arena Football League tonight…
After a hard-fought and important win over their interstate rivals, Pittsburgh’s “new AFL” team tries to handle the responsibility of first place as they take on their “old AFL” doppelganger.
After surviving a nail-biter in Dallas, the Power return to CONSOL Energy Center looking for their fourth straight win and the outright lead in the AFL’s East Division over a new nemesis from a familiar place.
The Power will try to ride momentum from their terrific comeback against Spokane into another tough home game in Week 10 against another perennial power from the AFL’s West Division.
After missing an opportunity to make a statement last week, the Power will try to make one in Week 9 and start turning around their home-field record against the reigning ArenaBowl champions.
Anthony Morelli and the Power showed great offensive consistency in their Week 7 win at New Orleans, and they’ll need more of that consistency as they head to Georgia in Week 8.
Despite a short prep week, the Power hope their trip to The Big Easy will be a productive one, though not much has come easy for the young team lately.
Head coach Chris Siegfried should be understandably eager to make a statement against his old team, and his current team, the Power, also have a thing or two to prove as they gear up for Saturday’s Week 6 contest.
The Power played to the level of their competition in their win at Milwaukee Monday night, which is something Chris Siegfried certainly doesn’t want to see happen against a struggling Tulsa squad.
The Power played very opportunistically in last week’s win and must continue to do so Monday night when they hit the road against a Milwaukee squad that, like Week 2 victim Iowa, can’t be overlooked.
The new kids on the block served notice that they won’t be bullied so easily, and now it’s up to the Power, in their second home game, to show that their valiant effort in the lid-lifter was not an accident.
