Rattlers overcome turnovers in win over Spokane

It wasn’t pretty. In fact, at times it was downright ugly. But the
Arizona Rattlers will take it.

Quarterback Nick Davila found Kerry Reed on a 6-yard touchdown
pass with just :05 left and the Rattlers stole a 57-53 win away from
the Spokane Shock at US Airways Center.

Spokane had a late lead and was seemingly on the doorstep of
putting the game away with the ball at the Rattlers’ 5-yard line, but
on a third down, center Ryan Cave and quarterback Kyle Rowley
couldn’t execute a center exchange and Glen Fox recovered, giving
the Rattlers new life.

Davila ended the night 20-of-33 for 320 yards and 5 touchdown
passes, but threw three interceptions, including one that was returned
for a touchdown by linebacker Terrence Moore that gave Spokane a
10-point lead late in the third quarter.

Maurice Purify caught 10 passes for 205 yards and three scores for
Arizona, who improved their record to 3-1 on the season while
Spokane falls to 1-3. The Rattlers travel to take on the Iowa
Barnstormers (2-2) next week.
