St. Louis BattleHawks win first game

The BattleHawks beat the Dallas Renegades 15-9

DALLAS — Ka-Kaw!

The St. Louis BattleHawks won its first game on Sunday.

BattleHawks made a fourth quarter comeback to beat the Dallas Renegades 15-9.

The BattleHawks were down by three until Alonzo Russel caught the ball in the end zone.

Quarterback Jordan Ta’amu went 20/27 for 183 yards and a score with a 108.4 rating, he added 77 yards on the ground.

The BattleHawks' next game is on Feb. 16 against the Houston Roughnecks in Houston.

The XFL is hoping to capture the attention of hardcore football fans in the aftermath of the Super Bowl and the end of the NFL season. Games don't feature a coin toss and are full of changes like one-, two- and three-point conversions replacing extra point kicks and the chance for two forward passes on the same play.
