Arizona Outlaws kick off their season at Tim’s Toyota Center with a win.

The Arizona Outlaws played their first-ever game and season opener Thursday night at Tim’s Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, Arizona against the Las Vegas Lynx to a crowd of 600. The show kicked off with a pregame rally hosted by Leeza Live of Magic 99.1 in the concourse. Saraphina Foley, 8th grader at Franklin sang the National Anthem. Cub Scout Pack 6 honored the crowd with the colors.

The starting roster included Dominique Mitchell (WR), Tony Norman (DB), Eric Harrison (DB), Kevin Breaker (WR), Jamar Dials (WR), Erik Jones (WR), Jamie Cota (QB), Telford Chapman (QB), L.J. Parker, Joshua Cooper (DL), Chris Collins (LB), Rosevelt Ross (RB), Jaa Valentine (DB), Ray Warren (DB), Tone Woods (LB), Lorenzo Chambers (OL), Joshua Push (DL), Caleb Bialik (DL), Lee Brown (OL), and Larry Brady (DL).

In the 1st quarter, Roosevelt Ross (#23) rushed for the very first ever Outlaw touchdown. Erik Jones (#8) made a 2 point conversion. Nevada’s attempted field goal was blocked. Arizona’s ball. Outlaw Telford Chapman (#11) threw an interception to Nevada. But, the Outlaws dodged the bullet on that one, and kept the Lynx from capitalizing in the throwing miscue. At the end of the first 15 minutes, the score read Outlaws 8, Nevada 0.

In the second quarter, Chapman threw a touch down to Jones. Then Nevada scores. But, their extra point is no good. By the end of the half, the score reads Arizona 26, Nevada 6.

The half time show was unique to Prescott Valley and Tim’s Toyota Center. It featured the dance team called The Jersey Lillies led by Paige LaFort. And yes Tommy Meredith, owner of the Jersey Lilly Saloon in Prescott, happily allowed the girls to use the name. The Jersey Lillies charmed the crowd with their poise and moves in what was also their inaugural performance.

A stage was quickly set up in front of the east goal post to complete the half time festivities. The band, Two Dollar Grey, which signed under Liquid Metal Records amidst their Jager tour, brought the energy of their high powered alternative rock to the center. People were on their feet to hear the high octane tunes.

Third quarter brought another TD for the Arizona Outlaws. Chapman threw to Jamar Dial (#7). Roosevelt Ross (#23) rushed for the 2 point conversion. Again Chapman threw to Dominique Mitchell (#1), but the 2 point conversion failed. By the end of the 3rd quarter, the scoreboard read, Outlaws 40, Lynx 6.

The Lynx threw for a TD getting the 4th quarter underway, and and this time they got the extra point. But it wasn't long before Nevada threw an interception to Outlaw player Ray Warren (#23). Nevada turnover, Arizona's ball.

Ending score Arizona 40, Nevada 13.
