There’s nothing like riding a winning streak toward the postseason.

The Renegades won their second straight game Oct. 22 in Marshall’s inaugural flag football season. They beat the FBI, 40-12 in the field near the NASA softball fields.

“Great teamwork. Accepted what they gave us,” Renegades captain Tyrin Thurmon, a defensive back/running back, said. A highlight of the game came when Trace Turner took one of his three interceptions and pitched the ball to Thurmon for a touchdown.

But the most valuable player was wide receiver Gary Eldridge, who scored two touchdowns and a two-point conversion. He finished with five catches for 60 yards.

Quarterback David Moore threw three touchdown passes and scored on a 5-yard run for the Renegades (2-2). They had one game left in the regular season before the three-round playoffs for the league’s six teams.

“As the season progressed, our team is really starting to jell,” linebacker Cam Brenner said.

Most of the Renegades’ 15 players are from NASA.
