Rattlers blow out Blizzard for 8th straight win

GREEN BAY, Wisc. — The Arizona Rattlers ran their win streak to eight in a row with a 62-26 drubbing of the Green Bay Blizzard on Saturday.

Quarterback Jeff Ziemba went 11 of 13 for 111 yards and five touchdowns. WR Dezmon Epps caught two of the touchdowns and added a third on a 57-yard kickoff return.
