  • Touchdown with 2.6 seconds left gives Baltimore Mariners American Indoor Football championship title

    After having trailed by 18 points with 10 minutes remaining, a last-gasp touchdown by Aaron Yarbough propelled the Baltimore Mariners past the Cape Fear Heroes, 45-44, on Saturday night to win the 2014 American Indoor Football championship in Fayetteville, N.C. The title-winning pass came from Richard Johnson, normally a defensive back, who filled in at quarterback after injuries to both of the team's top two players at the position. The Heroes led after each of the first three quarters. "In arena football, it's a lot of scoring," head coach Ron Meehan said. "Anything can happen. I just told the guys to keep fighting." With 11.3 seconds left, Cape Fear turned the ball over on downs, and Johnson hit Yarbough on his third end-zone heave with just over two seconds on the clock. The championship came in the Mariners' first season since they suspended play in 2010, when then-owner Dwayne Wells was arrested on charges of wire fraud. "It was big for a lot of reasons," Meehan said.
