Rangers hit the road
05/11/01 Jeff Matthews Staff reporter Alexandria Town Talk
They'll just have to travel roughly 1,200 miles to do it.
The Rangers begin their first road trip of the season at the Johnstown (Pa.) J-Dogs tonight at 7 p.m. The team had started the season with five straight home games.
"I think it will be a good experience for the team," said head coach/quarterback Jim Goodman. "Guys have been saying they can't wait to go on a road trip. It's something different, a break out of the same old routine." The team planned to leave town at 2 a.m. today to catch a 6 a.m. flight out of Baton Rouge. Louisiana plays five of its next six games on the road. Full story>>

It seems he did a pretty good job. In all, five different receivers caught passes and six different players ran the ball in the record-setting win.
"Everybody was having so much fun," Goodman said. "When things are going that good for you, you want to make sure everybody gets a taste." The 164 points is the highest single-game total for two teams in the history of major professional football, surpassing the total of 161 scored by San Jose and New England in an Arena Football League contest on June 9, 2000.
