UFL: Brahmas upend Battlehawks to reach UFL Championship Game


Share post:

Chase Garbers threw two touchdowns to lead the San Antonio Brahmas to a 25-15 victory over the host St. Louis Battlehawks on Sunday in the XFL Conference Championship Game.

The Brahmas will face the Birmingham Stallions in the UFL Championship Game next Sunday in St. Louis. The Stallions beat the Michigan Panthers 31-18 on Saturday in the USFL Conference Championship Game.

Anthony McFarland rushed for 115 yards on 11 carries, including a 69-yard touchdown to give San Antonio a 19-3 lead five minutes into the second half.

The Battlehawks rebounded with two third-quarter touchdowns in a 13-second span — on a 1-yard pass from AJ McCarron to Jake Sutherland and Pita Taumoepenu’s fumble recovery in the end zone — to cut the deficit to 19-15.

But the Brahmas held the hosts scoreless the rest of the way while Ryan Santoso kicked a pair of field goals to help seal the victory.

San Antonio jumped out to a 13-0 lead on first-half TD passes from Garbers to Marquez Stevenson (15 yards) and Justin Smith (63 yards) and led 13-3 at the half.

Garbers finished 15-for-21 passing for 197 yards and an interception, and his fumble resulted in Taumoepenu’s touchdown. McCarron was 19-for-29 for 179 yards, while Jacob Saylors rushed for 79 yards for St. Louis.
