Gunn helps pace Vipers’ comeback in Cincinnati
From Staff Reports
CINCINNATI — The Tennessee Valley Vipers posted their third straight victory of the 2007 arenafootball2 season and second straight on the road as they cruised to a 51-21 win over the Cincinnati Jungle Kats before 3,500 fans Saturday night at U.S. Bank Arena.
The Vipers, who scored the last 30 points of the game, improved to 4-2 and were paced by former North Alabama quarterback Chris Gunn, who threw four touchdown passes and ran for another in relief of injured starter Tony Colston.
Former Ole Miss standout Travis Blanchard had a pair of touchdown catches, ex-Alabama A&M star Henry Freeman and Lewis Howes had a touchdown catch each and USC’s John Cousins scored on a fake field goal for Tennessee Valley.
“It was a win and wins are good,” said Vipers coach Milt Theodosatos. “We are still a little banged up and we’ve got a lot of work to do before next weekend. It was a good road win.”
The game was tied at 21-21 midway through the third quarter when Gunn connected with Howes for a 7-yard touchdown. Tennessee Valley then took command when Gunn followed up a long pass to Freeman with a 7-yard touchdown strike to Blanchard made it 35-21.
