Week #3 vs.Chicago (Foreman)
Brawl sparks comeback for Hornets
When asked about what he thought of his team's performance, Foreman head coach Chuck Saieda put his hand on his chest and proclaimed with a big smile that he nearly went into cardiac arrest. Hornet's backup center, Giovanni Baez, summed it up nicely by saying "We played our asses off, especially after all of the cheap shots the fight."
Employing a ball control offense that pushed the Hornets to 293 yards and 41 minutes of the game clock for the game, Foreman recieved the opening kickoff and marched down the field 48 yards down to the Clark 8 yard line. And then on a sweep to the left side, RB Jeremie Groves took it down to the 1 yard line before stepping out of bounds. Just as the play ended, Groves was violently shoved to the ground by #33, Khama Ivy, seperating his right shoulder and being knocked out of the game.

And before they knew it, Boyd, Ivy, #57 Timotheus Jones and #10 Jerrel Thomas of Michelle Clark were sent to the locker room. Of the Hornets, Tate, #14 Pedro Ivery, #78 and #74 were ejected.
Four plays after the dust was settled, #77 Jason Mick intercepted a batted pass and ran 44 yards the other way with it. Six plays later, #33 Andre Cargo, put Foreman ahead 22 - 20 with a 2 yd TD run and a 2 point conversion with 1:03 left in the third quarter.
