Tommy Armstrong Jr. and Quincy Walden led the charge for the Danger in a much-needed win on the road against the Bismarck Bucks Saturday.
It was Walden who started off the scoring in the game, busting loose for a 20-yard TD run to put the Danger up 7-0. And it has been quite a journey for Walden to get back on the field for the Danger. The team just activated him from the IR back on March 12th.
Walden only touched the ball five times in the game, but he turned two of those touches into touchdowns. Late in the third quarter, Walden fielded a kickoff right on the Danger's goal line and took it 50 yards for a TD, putting the Danger up at that point 33-23.
Armstrong continued to stay efficient for the Danger this season, combining for another five touchdowns in the 50-35 win. Two TD's came through the air on just 7-of-12 passing for 56 yards. The other three, came on the ground as Armstrong continues his record pace of rushing TD's for the Danger.
Through just five games, Armstrong has accounted for 22 TD's, 11 through the air and another 11 on the ground. With nine games left, Armstrong just needs 14 more rushing TD's to tie the team record of 25 set by the now-offensive coordinator of the team, Jameel Sewell. Sewell set the rushing and TD records for a season back in 2019 when he combined for an amazing 77 TD's.
Back in 2019, however, the current Danger team still has a lot of work to do to match the efficiency of that 2013 season that saw the team advance to the United Bowl. The Danger are 2-3, with their only two wins coming against Bismarck, but they have a chance to make some waves on Saturday, April 6 when the Tucson Sugar Skulls come to Grand Island.
Tucson enters the contest 4-1 with their only loss coming to undefeated Arizona a few weeks ago. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Saturday inside the Heartland Events Center. Tickets start at just $15!
