LandSharks win fourth consecutive game
05/06/01 GARY LANEY AMERICAN PRESS
Lendon Henry rushed for 91 yards on 13 carries and scored four touchdowns as the unbeaten LandSharks beat the Rangers 58-18 in a National Indoor Football League game here Saturday.
But more than that, the future looks more shaky than ever for the Rangers (3-2), while Lake Charles (4-0) is still looking forward to its first home game with great anticipation.
For Alexandria's franchise, a crowd of just more than 1,600 at Rapides Coliseum heading into back-to-back road games at Johnstown, Pa., and Yakima, Wash., has caused questions about the Rangers' financial situation. Crowds have been sparse in what has been a season-opening five-game home stand.
"We are disappointed in the crowds,'' said Jim Goodman, the quarterback, head coach and part owner of the Rangers. "We were hoping for 4,000, but we've been drawing 2,000 to 2,200. But the economy is that way right now. People don't have the money to keep coming every week.'' Full story>>
LandSharks surprising 3-0 on season
05/05/01 GARY LANEY AMERICAN PRESS
The expansion National Indoor Football League team is off to a surprising 3-0 start after a 63-31 thrashing of defending league champion Mississippi last week.
Normally, that kind of success would have the home crowds out in droves. But, alas, there won't be a home crowd for Lake Charles for a while. Because of difficulty reserving the Lake Charles Civic Center, the LandSharks are still on the road.
The LandSharks continue that trip with today's game at the Louisiana Rangers of Alexandria. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Rapides Coliseum.
While it won't be a home game, it will be the local fans' best chance yet to see the team. Other games have been at West Virginia and Biloxi, Miss. Full story>>
