The Tucson Suagar Skulls made it two wins in two games, defeating the Bismarck Bucks, 62-42, in the franchise's first ever home game in front of 5,198 fans at the Tucson Arena.

"I'm happy for the fans that came out," said head coach Marcus Coleman. "Everything that Bismarck showed us, we worked on. We have to be more disciplined in the second half, and learn to finish games."

Quarterback Matt Behrendt had five first half touchdown passes as the Sugar Skulls led 35-7 at intermission. He finished with 8 touchdown passes. Linebacker Zach Allen had twelve tackles to lead the defense.

The game was broadcast live on KGUN's sister station, the CW Tucson.

The Sugar Skulls are an expansion team in the Indoor Football League. They play next week at the Arizona Rattlers in a matchup of unbeaten teams.
