Atlanta bounced back from last week's loss and continued their hot run at home in a 20-11 win over Houston. The Hustle led the entire way, jumping out to a 11-4 lead in the first half and pushed it to a 9 point lead at the end. The zone defense proved to be challenging for Houston as Atlanta forced 30 turnovers with 13 blocks. Holding Houston to 11 points is the lowest the Hustle has allowed to any team this season.
Matt Smith and Austin Taylor took over for the Hustle. Smith had 253 receiving yards and 5 goals, while Taylor threw for 249 yards with 3 assists. Jacob Blackman made his mark on defense, leading the Hustle with 3 blocks in 10 points played. Max Thorne also impressed with 256 throwing yards, 2 assists and 2 goals.
