      April 1, 2006 - The Green Bay Blizzard opened their 2006 season in
      front of a record crowd of 7,256, but it was not enough to beat the
      Albany Conquest. Despite a last-second INT by DS David Crocker, the
      Blizzard fell to their division rivals 48-40. (The Resch Center
      seating capacity for Arena Football is 7,995.)

      The Blizzard started off strong with OS Randall Lane scoring on 2 TD
      passes from QB James MacPherson. The Conquest fired right back on a
      3-yd TD run by QB Ryan Vena, his first of 3 on the night. The
      Conquest pulled ahead in the 2nd quarter, scoring 3 TDs, the final
      coming with no time left on the clock. At the end of the half the
      Conquest led 28-20.

      The second half was a back-and-forth battle, with both teams scoring
      several times. Blizzard WR/LB Robert "Superman" Garth scored on a 26-
      yard pass from QB Ronnie Gordon to go along with another TD from
      Randall Lane. Conquest QB Ryan Vena also added his third TD run.

      Lane (6-65, 4 TDs) and Garth (5-88, 1 TD) led the Blizzard in
      receiving. Starting QB MacPherson finished the game completing 12-of-
      17 passes for 147 yards and 4TDs with 1 INT).

      WR/DB Jim Jones led Albany's receivers with 6 catches for 84 yards.
      QB Ryan Vena finished 18-for-31 for 183 yards and 5 TDs (3 rushing),
      with 2 INTs.
