JACKSONVILLE – The (7-0) Jacksonville Sharks beat their best start in franchise history with their win during their last game against the (0-6) Corpus Christi Rage. Now that they have achieved that milestone, they will attempt to set the bar even higher as they take on the (4-2) Monterrey Steel at the Shark Tank for Star Wars Night at 7 p.m.
The Sharks dominated in their Week 8 performance against the Corpus Christi Rage, coming out with a 71-6 win. It was the largest lead the Sharks have had all season, and the least points they’ve allowed. Several players had standout performances last game, including kicker Nick Belcher had an impressive four deuces - his best all season, and Jermiah Price who made four sacks, the highest of any Shark player in a single game this season. The Boss had three more touchdowns to add to his total, now second in the league in touchdowns with 14.
The Steel most recently pulled out a close win against the Corpus Christi Rage 33-30 on Monday night. The last time the Sharks and Steel faced off, the Sharks won 60-21 in Mexico. They faced off to keep their perfect records, which the Sharks have since kept up.
The Sharks will have to use their fast-paced offense to capitalize on the Steel and give them their third loss of the season. Quarterback Damien Fleming will continue to lead the team to scoring, finding his variety of talented wide receivers in the endzone.
This game will be available on local TV in Jacksonville on CW-17. You can also access this game on YouTube Live and iHeart Radio (97.3FM). A link for YouTube to the live feed will be available on nationalarenaleague.com and will be provided on Shark’s social media prior to kickoff.
