The Baltimore Brigade (5-3) defeated the Columbus Destroyers (1-7), 44-39, Saturday at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, O.H. Brigade wide receiver Joe Hills made Arena Football League history by catching a touchdown reception in his 100th consecutive game. Hills finished with six receptions for 54 yards and two touchdowns.

“It’s a milestone that I am very proud to have reached,” Hills said. “It took me a long time to get here. Over the course of my career, there has been a lot of coaches and players that were a part of those 100 games and my family has been supporting me the entire way.”

Quarterback Shane Boyd completed 18 of 28 passes for 229 yards and six touchdowns. Boyd was named Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive game and connected touchdown passes to all three starting wideouts including three to Brandon Collins who led the Brigade with seven receptions for 132 yards and three touchdowns. For his efforts, Collin was named Offensive Player of the Game. Baltimore sacked the Columbus quarterback four times with defensive linemen Darryl Cato-Bishop and Justin Lawrence hauling in two each.

“It was a big win for us,” Baltimore Brigade Head Coach Omarr Smith said.  “First time in franchise history we won consecutive road games. Columbus is a very physical team, has a very good defense with a good young quarterback. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy and I’m happy for our guys.”

MVP: BAL QB Shane Boyd, 18 passes, 229 yards, 6 touchdowns, 1 interception

OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: BAL WR Brandon Collins 7 receptions, 132 yards, 3 touchdowns

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE GAME: COL DB Varmah Sonie, 3 total tackles (2 solo), 1 forced fumble, 1 interception

Brigade Head Coach Omarr Smith

On game in general

“It was important for us to grow individually and as a team. I still think offensively we need to be better and defensively we didn’t handle the situation at the end of the game very well. So, those are things I am looking to work on but, I am proud of the way we played today.”

On wide receivers Brandon Collins and Joe Hills

“Brandon stepped up tonight. Made some big plays for us. Joe Hills, you have to acknowledge him for his 100 th  consecutive game with a touchdown. It is a remarkable feat, well deserved and a true testament to his work ethic and his God given ability.”

On defensive line 4 sack performance

“Going into this week we knew that for us to have success defensively we would have to get after them up front. Coach Housman put a great game plan together and got those guys motivated to get after it.”

Quarterback Shane Boyd

On game in general

“I’m proud of my guys, really proud. We knew coming into this game that Columbus was coming off a win and was going to give us thier all. We knew we were in for a battle but the way we responded was great. Offensively we kept going, we overcame some adversity, we have some guys that are banged up, but they pushed through it. Defensively we got some stops, they got us the ball back and we were able to separate ourselves to be able to close the game out.”

On wide receiver Joe Hills

“When you look at the great milestone of Joe Hills and him having 100 straight games with a touchdown, that’s just amazing. Let alone playing 100 games period but to produce in 100 straight games is something unheard of. It’s a testament to how he prepares himself, how he takes care of his body and how he puts himself in different positions to help us win.”
