The Roughnecks defeated the St. Louis BattleHawks at home with a final score of 28-24.

The game started with a bang when kicker Sergio Castillo put the Roughnecks on the board, scoring the first three points of the game with a field goal kick.

After the BattleHawks scored the first touchdown of the game, quarterback P.J. Walker threw a bullet, putting the Roughnecks back in the lead.

Houston’s own Cody Brown came up big with an interception in the second quarter, further placing the Roughnecks in the lead.

By the end of the first half, the Roughnecks were able to hold the the BattleHawks back, keeping them from scoring again after their initial lead.

The BattleHawks started making a comeback in the second half, scoring three touchdowns and narrowing the gap in the game score.

In the end, it wasn’t enough for the BattleHawks to come away with a win.

Walker threw for 272 yards, and 4 touchdowns in last week’s game.

St. Louis has a very good defense, limiting Dallas to just nine points last week.

Walker spent three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, but now, Houston is where he is shining.
