In week two of the Budweiser Football League, the Angels, last season’s champions, came from behind to defeat the Islanders 28-6 Sunday at Eagle field.

The Islanders struck first blood in the second quarter, when running back Jerrick Abisia ran in for about a 10-yard touchdown that had the Islanders side jumping out of their seats.

With less than a minute left in the first half, Angels quarterback Stephen “SP” Phillips connected with wide receiver Issu Mendiola that put the Angels at the three-yard line. In the ensuing play, Phillips tied the game at six apiece on a three-yard quarterback keeper. Ryan Bigler then stomped into the end zone for the two-point conversion, giving the Angels the 8-6 lead.

The Angels cemented their lead in the second half, scoring three touchdowns.

For their first score of the second half, full back Chris Quenga flipped into the end zone for a one-yard touchdown. Bigler then ran in for his second two-point conversion, making the score 16-6.

In the fourth quarter, Angels’ Derrick Haynes ran into the end zone for what would have been a one-yard touchdown, however, a penalty on the offense called back the touchdown. Teammate Mike Pangelinan then followed with an 11-yard rushing touchdown, making the score 22-6. With 37 second left in the game, Haynes rushed in for a five-yard touchdown for the final score of the game.
