 Home is where the heart is, so they say, but not where the wins have been for the Sarasota Millionaires so far this season. The “Moneymen” fell behind early and were never able to catch up in a 24-8 loss to Broward County Cowboys Saturday afternoon at Booker High School in Sarasota. It was the second home loss of the season for Sarasota, who have won three in a row on the road.

The defending UFF champion and undefeated Cowboys (6-0) jumped ahead on their first possession of the ballgame when quarterback Daryle Hopper connected with Delaine Powell on a 42 yard touchdown pass over the middle. D’Andre Stringer added the two-point conversion to give the Cowboys an 8-0 lead 1:11 into the first quarter.

The Sarasota Millionaires showed some rust after a bye week falling behind early and then needed a touchdown in the final two minutes to defeat the Florida Stingrays Saturday night in a thriller in Ft. Myers, Florida. Patrick “Choo Choo” Brown had a career best night rushing for 165 yards on 24 carries and scored three touchdowns including a two-pointer to lead the Millionaires to their third win of the season. All of the Millionaires wins have been on the road. Sarasota’s only loss was at home to the Bay Area Pirates on February 16. The Stingrays scored first, midway through the first quarter when Jamie Smith blocked a punt at the Millionaires 22 yard line. One play later Charles Long ran it in from 22 yards to give the Stingrays a 6-0 lead. The extra point was blocked.

A week of intense practices after a tough loss last week to the Bay Area Pirates in their home opener paid dividends as the Sarasota Millionaires (2-1) defeated the Florida Veterans (2-1) 38-12 Saturday night in Port Charlotte, FL. The Millionaires scored twice in the first quarter and coasted to its second win of the season.
Quarterback Mario Davis found Ben Seymour down the far sideline on a 50 yard touchdown pass play midway through the first quarter to give the Millionaires an early lead they would not relinquish. Patrick “Choo Choo” Brown converted the two-pointer to put Sarasota up 8-0.
“We played a lot better”, said Davis. “We came out and gave it to them early. I’m more confident in the offensive line, believing in them more game by game. The game is starting to slow down a lot more for me.”
Late in the first frame, Gus Blanc recovered a muffed punt on the Veterans 19 yard line. Three plays later, Marvin “Mo” Harris rumbled in from two yards out and Justin Thomas added another two-pointer to give the Millionaires a 16-0 advantage.

Trailing 29-0 after the first quarter, the Sarasota Millionaires mounted a comeback that fell just short in a 32-28 home opening loss to the Bay Area Pirates Saturday afternoon at Booker High School. Pirates quarterback Brian Koesling threw for 284 yards and three touchdowns to lead Bay Area to its first win of the season and hand the Millionaires its first defeat in the United Football Federation.
Brian Koesling connected on the first of two long touchdown passes to Frankie Solomon on the Pirates second possession of the game. Bay Area traveled 67 yards on two plays capped off by a 61 yard scoring reception by Solomon to give the Pirates a 6-0 lead after a missed extra point.
The Millionaires turned over the ball four times in the game, three times in the first quarter. The Pirates took advantage of a second fumble at the Sarasota 14 yard line and one play later made the Millionaires pay when Brian Koesling found brother Mike Koesling in the corner of the end zone on a 10 yard touchdown pass. A two-point conversion extended the Pirates lead to 14-0.
