Commanders notch first win in inaugural Alliance game
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The San Antonio Commanders started their existence off with a 15-6 win over the San Diego Fleet Saturday night.
With Mike Martz on the San Diego sidelines — the mastermind behind the Greatest Show on Turf — it was expected to be an offensive battle.
But instead, it was a defensive struggle through most of the game with only one touchdown scored on either side.
The Commanders got the scoring started with a second quarter field goal.
The two teams would exchange a pair of field goals by halftime to go into the break with a 6-6 tie.
San Antonio would end the third quarter on a long 46 yard pass by quarterback Logan Woodside to Alonzo Moore to the 3-yard line.
