TALLAHASSEE, Fla. | The Dark Clouds Defense looks like they are in peak form after defeating the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions 27-6 in front of over 19,000 Rattlers.
Dark Cloud Defense Dominates
The Dark Cloud Defense dominated the Golden Lions from start to end, holding them to only 193 yards. Even more impressive, the Rattlers held the Golden Lions to only 20 rushing yards on 17 carries.
