Offensive struggles doom Fleet, drops debut at San Antonio 15-6

SAN ANTONIO, TX (02/07/2019) The Alliance of American Football kicked off its inaugural season with a nationally televised contest between the San Diego Fleet and hosting San Antonio Commanders.

Two field goals (47 & 28 yards) by former San Diego State kicker Donny Hageman were the only points San Diego could get on the board, as the San Antonio defense kept the Fleet (0-1) from reaching the end zone, helping secure the win in front of 27,857 fans at the Alamodome.

With the score tied 6-6, Kenneth Farrow II opened the fourth quarter with a three-yard run for the only touchdown of the game, giving the Commanders (1-0) a 12-6 lead.

Quarterback Mike Bercovici completed 15 of 25 passes for 176 yards and two picks before getting benched at the start of the fourth quarter for Philip Nelson, who head coach Mike Martz named the week two starter after the game.

The Fleet will host the Atlanta Legends in their first home game on Sunday, February 17th at 5:00 p.m. PT at SDCCU Stadium.
