Renegades seek revenge, title against Metro Bulls

November 18, 1995|By Steven Kivinski

The Baltimore Renegades (11-0) will have a point to prove tonight when they play the Metro Bulls (6-5) of Washington, D.C., at 7 at Catonsville High for the inaugural Atlantic Football League semipro championship.

"We have some unfinished business," said Renegades coach Randy Brunner, referring to last year's loss to Charlotte in the Mason-Dixon League title game. "Since Day 1, we've had our sights on the league championship and the team is determined to bring home the trophy this year."

The winner earns a berth in next Saturday's first round of the American Football Association playoffs in Hampton, Va.

Baltimore's defense, anchored by free safety Mike Rogers (Woodlawn/Howard), has yielded just over seven points a game, and its offense, led by running back Steve Williams, is averaging 31.5 points.

"Last year we lost on a fluke play, but we won't let that happen again," said Rogers. "We know Metro can't run on us and their quarterback's arm isn't that great, so they're going to need a trick play or a Hail Mary if they want to score at all."
