San Francisco, Ca. - The size and
speed of the Islanders proved to be too much for the Golden State
Giants and the Islanders won easily, 31-0.
The Islanders got some tough runs from running back Corky Lindsey,
who finished with 95 yards and a touchdown. The passing attack
showed some signs of life with quarterbacks Jimmy Collins and John
Manville combining 11-21 for 217 yards and two touchdowns.
Leading the receiving corps were Donyell Crain, four for 60 yards,
and Cecil Elekewachi, one catch for 77 yards and a touchdown and
Joseph Munn, three for 38 and a touchdown. Munn also handled the
kicking duties, making four extra points and a 38-yard field goal.
Munn was named offensive player of the game for his efforts.
Defensively, the Islanders were dominant. They harassed the Giant
quarterbacks all day, sacking them eight times. four by Anthony
Edwards who leads the league with 12 sacks in four games.
The defensive line of Sam Iosia, Percey Robinson, Frisco Leaa, Lance
and Lawrence Mitchell and Edwards proved impossible for the Giants'
offense to penetrate. Linebacker Randy Simms had four tackles and a
sack and Safety Eric Hubbard had four tackles. Calvin Edwards, and
Anthony Bias each recovered a fumble, while defensive back Jermaine
Hargraves snared his third interception of the year. The Islander
defense held the Giants to negative yardage on the day and posted
their first shutout of the season. Iosia was named defensive player
of the game for his play in the trenches.
The Islanders have a 4-0 record and will travel to Santa Rosa
Saturday to meet the Minor League Football national defending
champion North Bay Rattlers. The Rattlers' only blemish last year
came at the hands of the Islanders. Kickoff is 6:30 p.m. at Ellsie
