It’s tough to win a SFL game a man down, especially if that man is Johnny English. Carolina tried their best – and had a brief lead in the fourth quarter – but Atlanta’s two major second-half offensive bursts were enough to top the Skyhawks 23-17.
B.D.G. Hollewood ran 81 yards to the house in the third quarter to put Atlanta up 13-10 and Boo Chisholm caught a post and took it a 69-yard distance. Overall, the Swarm scored 20 of their 23 points in the second half.
Atlanta (1-0) hosts Cleveland (0-1) in the Swarm’s home opener next week while Carolina will host Baltimore in the only Week 2 battle of winless teams.[event_details id=”3825″ align=”none”] [event_results id=”3825″ align=”none”] [event_performance 3825 align=”none”]
