The Generals threw the ball away and it was fielded by Maurice Alexander who ran 88 yards for a touchdown, which proved to be a difference in the game.
Stars Cornback Amani denies New Jersey quarterback Louise Perez the winner of the Dennis Generals Final Drive and wins the championship.
“You go into these games, they play a little differently than they’ve played all year, because it’s a playoff game and there are a lot of ‘or’ elements in that game,” Stars coach Bart Andrews said on Sunday when he asked about Fox & the fourth quarter’s Friends Weekend.
“We went inside saying anything could happen and what you want to do when it happens. Do not respond to it. Respond. And they did.”

This is a slightly different game between stallions and breakers.
All-USFL Quarterback Kyle Slaughter threw 327 yards for New Orleans, but the Breakers defense failed to hold off Birmingham. And Stallions linebacker Demarquis Gates intercepted the Slaughter Pass and returned it for a touchdown.
In the second quarter, Stallions wide receiver Victor Bolden Jr. gave Birmingham the lead with a kick for a touchdown. This is the first kick return touchdown of the season.
Stallions quarterback Jmar Smith was 17-27 with 190 passing yards and had a passing and rush touchdown in the win. Osiris received a touchdown catch from Mitchell Smith.
Birmingham have now won the title after finishing the regular season 9-1.
“I’m standing on the sideline. I’m made players play great games, they’ve competing with their tails. They love the game,” Stallions coach Skip Holtz told Fox & Friends Weekend on Sunday.
