Redwoods looking for first win in home debut

During last week’s inaugural United Football League game, everything seemed to be clicking early on for the San Francisco-based California Redwoods against the Las Vegas Locomotives.

Quarterback Shane Boyd scored the league’s first-ever touchdown  on a 4-yard scamper and the Redwoods went on to grab a 14-3 lead early in the second quarter. But that’s when the wheels fell off.

Las Vegas stormed back and the Redwoods (0-1) eventually fell 30-17, and now are forced to regroup heading into Saturday’s home opener at AT&T Park against the New York Sentinels (0-1), the first of three games that will be played at the waterfront park this season. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. and the contest will air on HDNet.

In order to prevent a repeat performance Saturday, coach Dennis Green and the Redwoods will need to get their offense in gear.

The unit produced just 167 total yards against Las Vegas, with Boyd finishing a paltry 9-of-22 for
92 yards. Running back Cory Ross was held to 47 yards on 16 carries.

The Sentinels, led by quarterback Quinn Gray, struggled in their opener as well, falling 35-13 to the Florida Tuskers.

The four UFL teams will each play six games in the regular season. The championship game is set for Nov. 27 in Las Vegas.
