Road tests for Rush, Slaughter

Success - Article sent! close

After bouncing back from a tough loss to Kansas City with a thumping of New Orleans last week at home and surviving the hoopla of having his number retired, Chicago Rush coach Bob McMillen was one relieved guy.

"This was a momentous occasion for the team," McMillen said. "I am thrilled to walk away with a victory because it made the night even more special for everyone involved."

Defensive back Vic Hall had a pair of interceptions -- one returned for a touchdown -- and receiver Reggie Gray finished with 9 receptions for 165 yards and 3 touchdowns to lead the Rush past the Voodoo.

The Rush (5-2) kick off a two-week road trip with a stop in Tulsa (2-5) on Saturday.

For trivia buffs out there, The Talons are coached by Mitch Allner, who was the first head coach in the AF2 to have played with and coached a team to an ArenaCup championship.

Slaughter off to Richmond:

Fresh off their white knuckle 42-39 win over rival Green Bay, keyed by Chris Nendick's field goal with 8 seconds remaining, the Chicago Slaughter (6-3) hit the road Saturday to take on the Richmond Revolution (1-7) at 7 p.m.
